The Agusta Rush 1000 is a swanky four-cylinder streetfighter from the MV Agusta 2022 lineup. With very few units for sale, if you’re one of the lucky few to put this Rush in your collection, then you’ll be glad to know that MV Agusta has done everything possible to make it better than before.
The limited edition model took advantage of the same tubular chassis and the 998 cc inline four-cylinder engine, the same as the Brutale 1000 RR, which comes from the F4, so it is not a novelty, but it was very well updated. For example, it now has a new camshaft profile that delivers more torque at low and medium rpm.
MV Agusta upgraded the engine with a DLC, diamond-like carbon, and a surface coating that substantially improves valve surface sliding properties. In addition, this Italian bike is the only production motorcycle with radial valves and titanium connecting rods. The transmission also has new gearing, and the clutch bell is now reinforced to better support its horsepower.
The Ohlins suspension comes with some adjustments to improve the response. Still, it is the hardware and software update where the most difference is noticeable since it enhances the feel of all the electronic aids, anti-wheelie, traction control with eight intervention levels, four maps of power, and adds and Continental MK100 ABS with Cornering function.
The 2022 MV Agusta Rush 1000 starts at $40,600 USD / $43,520 CAD.

2022 MV Agusta Rush 1000 Features
The evolution of the electronics compartment aims at making the Rush 1000 the easiest possible to drive despite its exceptional performance. Thus the extreme care in fine-tuning the electronic management of the engine. The 8-level traction control is particularly useful on a model boasting rocket-like starts, as is the anti-wheelie system and the EAS 2.1 Up & Down for clutch-free changes.
All MV Agusta technology is concentrated in this Rush 1000, which boasts the engine, transmission and chassis of the extremely powerful Brutale 1000 RR. Every technical detail has been adapted to the irreverent vocation of this “strip” bike, to obtain an even more exciting performance. Starting with titanium connecting rods, which reduce engine loads and inertia.
Brembo Stylema callipers linked to Bosch 9 Plus Race ABS with RLM (Rear wheel Lift Mitigation) constitute the ideal combination to manage the exuberance of the Rush 1000. Born to impress, it exploits the electronically adjustable Öhlins EC suspension units to further enhance driving control.
