Still Offering Tons of Power
We reported on the Serie Oro models that MV Agusta put out. These high-priced, high-power machines were limited edition models. Not everyone who wanted one could get their hands on one or afford one. There were reports that MV Agusta would put out lower-priced variants of the bikes, and now we have some details about the bikes thanks to Bennetts.
The publication reported that the names of the bikes will be the 1000RC and 1000RR. Both motorcycles will have the same engine as the Brutale 1000 Serie Oro versions. The engines will be in the same tune as the limited edition bikes and will make 205 hp. Apparently, the mass-produced models won’t be heavier than the limited edition models either. This is impressive because MV Agusta has to use different materials to make the bikes more affordable.
Of the two bikes, the RC will be the more high-end version featuring many of the same features and upgrades as the Serie Oro models. This could include things like the electronically controlled Ohlins suspension. The RR will be a slightly downgraded model some of the high-end suspension systems and componentry won’t be there. Still, it should be a seriously quick and impressive motorcycle. I’m really interested where these bikes will fall on price. MV Agusta should reveal the bikes at EIMCA later this year.
