MV Agusta Unleashes An Aggressive Carbon Fiber 212HP Superbike

Nov 11, 2019

Category: Rides

Just days after the release of the new Brutale 1000 RR, MV Agusta has now pulled the cover off of yet another wildly-exotic naked production model that continues the Varese marque’s tradition of pushing the design envelope. Christened the Rush 1000, the ultra-unique streetfighter is built around the aforementioned Brutale 1KRR platform while taking visual inspiration to the drag-racing scene.

At the heart of the 408lb (dry) Rush is the liquid-cooled, 998cc, inline-four banger found in the newly-updated Brutale 1000 RR, which pumps out 86ft-lbs of torque and 209hp in stock trim — 212hp with a special track-only exhaust setup — all of which is kept in check via a full suite of electronic rider aids. Suspension components come from Sweden and Italy’s finest: a fully-adjustable Ohlins TiN-treated NIX EC fork and TTX mono-shock supplemented by an electronic steering damper and radial-mount Brembo four-pot Stylema Monobloc calipers paired with 320mm discs. Other notable elements include full carbon fiber bodywork held via titanium fasteners, a titanium SC-Project exhaust with carbon end caps and heat shield, and CNC’d aluminum tank cover and rear-sets. The back wheel is also a CNC’d item shrouded in carbon fiber covers while out front there’s a top-of-the-line spoked Kineo rim.
