MV Agusta Launches A Fighter Jet-Inspired Hyper-Naked Moto With 212HP

Just days after pulling the cover off of its all-new Brutale 1000 RR at EICMA in 2019, MV Agusta also unveiled the RUSH 1000, an ultra-limited-edition, highly idiosyncratic, and ridiculously high-performance naked superbike based on the four-cylinder Brutale platform. And after the initial limited run quickly sold out, the Varese marque has now introduced an upgraded and improved batch of RUSH 1000 bikes for the 2021 model year.

Drawing visual inspiration from Count Giovanni Agusta’s early roots in military aviation, the 2021 RUSH 1K sports a black and gray livery accented with black and yellow airplane-themed caution stripes. At the heart of the new MV is a 998cc inline-four engine that pumps out 86ft-lbs of torque and 208hp — or 212hp with the included racing kit and its track-only SC-Project carbon exhaust system and dedicated race ECU — and allows for a top speed of over 186mph. Constructed around an advanced CrMo steel tubular trellis frame that’s paired with an aluminum single-sided swing-arm, the 2021 RUSH 1000 also boasts forged alloy wheels sporting carbon fiber wheel covers, four-pot Brembo Stylema calipers, top-of-the-line Ohlins suspension with a Nix EC TiN-treated USD fork and EC TTX monoshock, a multi-directional quick-shifter, and a liberal dose of additional carbon fiber bits. Limited to only 300 units worldwide, the 2021 MV Agusta RUSH 1000 is priced at $47,395.
