Fun fact – according to the report, only Ducati and MV Agusta have ever won this contest, with the ‘Top Ten’ category continuing to boast various different manufacturers.

My mind is boggled, because that means in 16 years that Motociclismo has hosted the competition, only red beasties have stolen the title; Agusta hogging the podium in 2005, 2007 and 2010 with the Brutale 910 R, Brutale 1078RR and F3, and 2012 seeing the Rivale 800 at the top of the heap.

“For us it is another great recognition and further confirmation of how much energy and resources MV Agusta is dedicating to the constant development of new products,” enthuses Timur Sardarov, MV Agusta’s CEO. 

“Having won this important competition for the sixth time is a great satisfaction for all of us. I want to dedicate this victory to all our employees who put incredible passion into their work every day.”

    I own the first 2003 Brutale 750. I put a thousand down and waited a year for it. Then I bought the 910. I still have the 750, and apart from feeling like a goddess when I ride it, just looking at it gives me joy. I would buy the Veloce in an instant if I could because of the way it looks. PURE MV art again!
