MV Agusta planning 600cc Supersport model alongside F4 1000 Superbike, also Brutale-style Naked version both designed by Massimo Tamburini.

Should the acquisition of Husqvarna by another party take place, this would enable MV Agusta to concentrate completely on future expansion of its product range.

Massimo Tamburini is confirmed to be working on the design of a 600cc four-cylinder Supersport version of the F4, which while it retains a recognizable family look is not a downsized clone of the bigger bike, as with the Ducati 749/999.

According to factory insiders, it was considered important that the smaller-capacity and therefore less expensive MV should be distinguishable in appearance from the more prestigious 1000cc models – though it’s certain to be another highly distinctive design by the so-called ‘motorcycling Michelangelo’.

A Naked version, similar to the F4 Brutale but wearing a different name, is also planned – but the fully-faired Supersport version will appear first, and is scheduled to make its debut at the 2009 EICMA Show in Milan.

This shall be great for the seemingly shallow "Italian" sportbike market... and the thought of an MV Agusta 600 is giving me goosebumps
