MV Agusta officially announces that the drag strip inspired MV Agusta Rush 1000 will enter production in June this year! Here is everything you should know about the limited hyper naked bike from MV Agusta!
MV Agusta just announced that they will be starting the production of the Rush 1000 “drag strip-inspired” bike in June this year. Out of the 300 limited units, the first bike will be rolling out of the Lake Varese hangars towards the end of June 2020; ready for the privileged owners who pre-ordered their Rush 1000 online and through MV Agusta’s worldwide dealers network.
Timur Sardarov, CEO of MV Agusta Motors S.p.A. commented: “With the production of the Rush 1000 starting this coming June; we are right on track with respect to our 5 year industrial plan announced a few weeks ago. As we are breaking new ground in our expansion journey into new segments and new markets; MV Agusta will continue to produce amazing works of exclusive motorcycle art from its headquarters in Italy; remaining true to its heritage of performance, elegance and state-of-the-art technology. I am sure this incredibly attractive model will meet the enthusiasm of the proud new owners.”
Details of the hyper naked MV Agusta Rush 1000
MV Agusta says the style and components appropriately focus on emphasizing the concept of a hyper naked “beast”. All of MV Agusta’s engineering know-how is packed into the Rush 1000 and draws on Formula1 and MotoGP technology; offering a thrilling out-of-this-world riding experience, with hair-raising true MotoGP replica performance.
The design of the Rush 1000 lives up to everything one would expect from an MV Agusta limited series. Starting from the many unique details such as; the specially designed headlight unit, spoke front wheel, the minimalist rear subframe and passenger seat as well as the unique side-exit exhausts.
The livery of the MV Agusta Rush 1000 is a pure statement of style and elegance; with dark metallic matt grey, Mamba red matt carbon and metallic bronze.
On top of this, the aerodynamic rear wheel cover, a technical solution used in drag races to reduce the coefficient of drag, represents a clear statement of this attitude.
Engine and Electronics
The mean-looking Rush 1000, with its inline-four cylinder engine, produces 208 HP (212 HP with the Racing Kit). On top of this, the bike could reach a top speed of over 300 km/h! The 8-level traction control and “launch control” systems help to manage the bike’s beastly acceleration. Together with the EAS 2.1 Up & Down for clutch-free changes and the wheelie control system, they contribute to making the Rush 1000 easy and fun to handle with maximum safety.
The Rush’s personality is further enhanced by the Öhlins EC suspension units with electronic control and the aluminium and steel trellis frame; both adopted from the Brutale 1000 RR along with the Brembo Stylema callipers and the Bosch 9 Plus Race ABS.
The optional Rush Racing Kit comes with an extremely lightweight titanium dual exhaust silencer system with a dedicated carbon fibre cover and billet CNC machined inserts. On top of this, the kit also includes an engine ECU with a specifically developed engine control system map to increase and optimize the power. Also included is a unique carbon fibre passenger seat cover!
