After working the three cylinders magic, MV Agusta moves to four in 2018
Plan of a brand new 1200cc four-pot comes after the Italian gets safe sailing watersby Sagar, on
The rule of three, or “omne trium perfectum” as it was first written in Latin, debates that everything that comes in threes’ is perfect. This may be the reason why the MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR is that good. An exotic Italian motorcycle that reached a new pinnacle of technical development and performance with that biblical three-cylinder power mill.
Now, the Italian marquee is now concentrating on working on new machines for 2018 including a new line of Brutales’. It will run on a 1200cc, four-cylinder engine similar in architecture to the 998cc on the mighty F4 superbike.
The reason MV Agusta is concentrating on the Brutale rather than the fully faired F4s’ is simple. The nakeds have been settling the bills and are the best-selling brand for MV. This means that the street will get the first 1200cc four cylinders rather than the World SBK Championship which also needs a new superbike platform.
MV already makes a four-cylinder Brutale called the 1090RR. The in-line four-cylinder architecture is part of MV Agusta’s history, which is fully expressed in the engine found in the 1090RR having two maximum power configurations: 144 hp and 158 hp.
The 1200cc four mill will soon become the basis for future street models from MV which will also include a bigger version of the Turismo Veloce and the F4 much later. But the most important model I will be waiting for will be the 1200cc Dragster RR range that will take up art walls across every bedroom.
MV Agusta gave us this confirmation post its new financial structuring that now takes MV Holding to become the 100% owner of MV Agusta S.p.A. MV Holdings is a firm that is jointly owned by MV Agusta CEO, Giovanni Castiglioni, and the Russian Sardarov family.
Expect the new 1200cc four-cylinder machine to be displayed at the 2018 EICMA show or the INTERMOT. We also expect them to have MV Agusta’s well-sorted MVICS electronics package added to the mix, and the semi-active electronic suspension seems likely as well.
