- Inspired by the 1973 750S cafe racer
- Production version to debut in 2024
Italian motorcycle marque MV Agusta has taken the wraps off its new cafe racer concept, the 921 S. It has been a year in the making and the final production model of the motorcycle is expected to debut in 2024.
The artistic design of the 921 S is inspired by the legendary 750S cafe racer from 1973. It boasts a round headlamp, a long and sculpted fuel tank, and a quirky tail housed on a steel trellis frame. The flat racing-style seat is accompanied by a tiny backrest which, along with the low clip-ons and rear-set pegs, seemingly intend to deliver an aggressive riding position. The overall design is unmistakably reminiscent of the 750S with a triple-tone paint scheme comprising grey and blue bodywork with bold red highlights.
Strapping onto its tubular chassis is a 921cc, inline four-cylinder engine that produces 115.5bhp. MV Agusta has equipped the 921 S with top-notch components like 17-inch aluminium alloy rims with carbon fibre covers while the suspension setup includes adjustable Ohlins. Similarly, the front and rear disc brakes are sourced from world-class Brembo.
As for the electronic aids incorporated in the MV Agusta 921 S concept, there’s a 4.5-inch touchscreen dash, a 16-litre fuel tank, cruise control, GPS, launch control, traction control, and four riding modes. Furthermore, MV Agusta says the concept weighs 205kg (dry) and can attain a top speed of around 219kmph.
