MV Agusta releases preview of new RVS

  • Published On: 19 May 2017

The company showed a short video of what appears to be a café racer based on the Dragster RR.

This new bike, dubbed the MV Agusta RVS, or Reparto Veicoli Speciali, which stands for Special Vehicle Operations in Italian is possibly a limited edition.

The company has released no information about this new motorcycle, barring a short 37-sec teaser video. The video is largely clips of the RVS name being etched into a block of what appears to be solid aluminium. A very dimly lit silhouette of the bike is visible in the last couple of seconds though.

From what’s visible, it looks like the RVS is based on MV Agusta’s Brutale Dragster 800 RR. However, at the front, the Dragster’s sloping oval headlight has been replaced by a smaller round unit. The bike also appears to sport low-slung clip-on handlebars, giving it a sporty stance, meaning it could be a café racer take on the Dragster RR by MV Agusta.

If it’s based on the Dragster RR, it would be safe to assume that it will be powered by the same 798cc three-cylinder motor. This engine is good for 140hp of peak power, coming in at 13,100rpm, and a peak torque figure of 86Nm that comes in at 10,100rpm.

MV Agusta’s bikes have been available in India since last year through a venture with MotoRoyale and the company is gearing up to launch the latest version of the Brutale 800 in the country in the coming months.
