2020 MV Agusta Brutale Rush 1000

2020 MV Agusta Brutale Rush 1000

A "strip" down drag inspired version of the Brutale 1000 with 212 hp, SC Project exhaust, and tons of carbon-fiber, aluminum and titanium

The last time anything like this came out of the MV Agusta factory gates was the RVS#1. Although it ran on a three-pot 798cc Brutale platform, it showcased the Italian brand’s intentions to continue creating specials for those who dream out of the ordinary. Carrying the steroid pumped baton on, MV Agusta has produced another masterpiece that could’ve only been possible in the hands of their artisans – the 2020 MV Agusta Rush 1000.

Since 2019, MV Agusta has been breeding a new line of four-pot Brutales 1000s’. Based on the same platform of the 2020 Brutale 1000 RR, this “strip” Rush edition is an homage to the drag racing scene taken to the extreme. With a tuned-up 998cc churning 208 hp, this machine adorns visual cues and power figures unlike seen on any other production streetfighter before.

The Formula One champion throws a leg over another Italian beauty

2016 - 2017 MV Agusta Brutale 800 / Brutale 800 RR

Do You Have The Skills to Grab a Tiger By The Tail?

MV Agusta introduced the world to its Brutale family back in 2003, and we’ve been smitten ever since. Racy good looks and Italian performance have been the hallmarks of the line, and the factory doubled down in 2016 with a heavily updated version of its 800 and the even more race-tastic 800 RR. The revisions brought changes from the bones up with a completely reworked frame to carry the improved engine, and a whole passel of electronic features to help you keep it all under control. Riders can expect around 108-horsepower from the base 800, and even more from the RR, so these new kids on the block definitely uphold the reputation for performance established by earlier incarnations. I’ve been looking forward to getting to know the new Brutales, and now that I have I can say that I wish I’d done it earlier. Read on to find out why.

2017 MV Agusta RVS#1

The true Italian dream sequence is here. And this time, it is evil.

Till what limit can the art on two wheels be extended to? Ask MV Agusta. Having made some of the most exotic Italian masterpieces on two wheels, MV has a tremendous history in terms of making some of the most beautiful looking motorcycles on the planet.

This division was joined by the San Marino Research Center Castiglioni (originally born as CRC, Cagiva Research Center) to work on the brand’s Brutale Dragster 800 RR and come out with an evil looking motorcycle that will scare the daylights out of anything on the road.

Enter the RVS#1. Drumrolls please.

2015 - 2017 MV Agusta Brutale 1090 RR

Meccanica Verghera Agusta quickly made its mark on the motorcycle-racing world back in 1945 when it started producing motorcycles in post-war Italy. Legend has it that the brothers Agusta shifted from manufacturing airplanes to motorcycle both to save the jobs of the factory workers and to fund their own penchant for racing.

Over the years, MV Agusta has remained a rather small company with an over-sized footprint on the track, who in 2010 added the 1090 RR to the already decade-old Brutale family. Although the 1090 is available sans the “RR” through Canadian dealers, the factory restricted U.S. imports to the more race-tastic and powerful “RR” model for 2017. MV Agusta isn’t a brand that gets a lot of recognition in the U.S. because reasons, so join me while I illustrate why it should.
