- MV Agusta Rush 1000 to be available from June
- Gets carbon fiber bodywork and is limited to 300 units
- Could make its way to India by 2021
MV Agusta revealed the Rush 1000 at the 2019 EICMA in Italy. The manufacturer priced it at a whopping EUR 34,000 (approx Rs 27 lakh) at the time and announced that it would be available from May this year.
However, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, MV Agusta had to temporarily shut down operations, delaying the Rush 1000. Now, the Italian bikemaker has announced that the motorcycle will go into production in June and be available in international markets by the end of next month itself.
The MV Agusta Rush 1000 is a radical, ‘drag race-inspired’ naked motorcycle based on the Brutale 1000. While the Brutale 1000 looks stunning in itself, the folks back in Varese have made sure the Rush 1000 has an identity of its own. So it gets a round, full-LED headlamp, a carbon-fibre wheel cover adorned with ‘04’ decals that hides the forged aluminum wheel that is mounted on a single-sided swingarm. It also gets a muscular fuel tank, petite pillion seat and a uniquely-styled rear end with a circular LED tail lamp
It comes powered by a 998cc, inline-four cylinder engine that produces 208bhp of power and 116.6Nm of torque. Although, with the Rush Racing kit, the power is pushed up to a staggering 212bhp. The motorcycle’s premium suspension and braking are sourced from Ohlins and Brembo respectively. And to complete the package, MV Agusta will only be producing only 300 units of the Rush 1000 for the world. It could make its way to India in limited numbers bearing an extravagant price tag.
