That Didn’t Take Long
With the brand’s recent advertisement getting the conversation going about what’s appropriate for a motorcycle ad, you might have thought MV Agusta would have had at least a little trouble selling the Brutale 1000 Serie Oro and the Superveloce 800 Serie Oro. You’d be wrong. The company managed to sell all of the bikes planned to be made in a matter of just a few days, according to Motorcycle.com.
MV Agusta built 300 of both motorcycles. The limited series bikes were special models and people have responded positively to the motorcycles. MV Agusta got into some high water with the advertisement for the Superveloce, but the people who were mad about the ad didn’t do much to sway buyers from taking ownership of their new limited series bikes. Timur Sardarov, CEO of MV Agusta had plenty to be happy about. He said the following about the bikes:
We are delighted with the success of these two launches. It proves that we are on the right path to continue in MV Agusta’s glorious tradition of constant innovation, breathtaking performance and superb design.
Both bikes are special. The Brutale 1000 features a powerful 1,000 engine that makes 208 hp. Pair that with aggressive styling and you have a killer bike. The Superveloce 800 has a bit of a retro look to it. The motorcycle features a 148 hp 799cc engine. Both bikes are stunning to look at and likely impressive on the road or track. I wasn’t one of the buyers, but I’d love to ride one of these someday.
