Amidst the flurry of patent requests, patent renewals and other filings being leaked on various Ducati, Suzuki and Honda machines comes a surprising new scoot from another bike brand keen on renewing their riders’ experience on two wheels – and the concept is a screamer of a café racer from the camp of MV Agusta.
According to MCN, the machine has been christened ‘the 921 S,’ for which we have a nice lineup of specs:
A new 921cc, inline-four engine capable of Euro5 compliancy and a 114hp/86lbft power profile
Öhlins suspension (electronically adjustable forks / rear single shock absorber)
Brembo brakes (four-piston calipers at the front and two pistons with a single 220mm disc at the rear)
4.5-inch touchscreen display
205kg weight (dry)
The engine, in particular, shows some serious tweaks; new camshaft profiles run alongside a countershaft to keep the engine from getting too rumbly, and with the above power profile, MV Agusta is looking to shove a top speed of over 136mph under the caboose of the nearest fan (me. I’m that fan).
Electronics will be purportedly supplied in the form of cruise-control, GPS, launch control, traction control and four rider modes – all aiding in a machine that boasts inspiration from the iconic 1973 MV Agusta 750S.
All told, a dangerously attractive package – and if the reports are accurate, we’re looking at a debut as soon as the year after next.
