MV Agusta

2020 Brutale 1000 RR Serie Oro – Superveloce 800 Serie Oro – Dragster 800 RR SCS – That’s Amoré

JEFF BUCHANAN


Motorcycles are visceral things. They ignite the same kind of irrational passions that fuel amorous feelings between two people. They fill the devout enthusiast with irrepressible euphoria, inspiring them to almost ridiculous impulsiveness. How fitting that Italy, a country renowned for its amoré—almost an official national treasure—would also be the romantic epicenter of motorcycling, producing some of the world’s most alluring examples of two-wheel lust.

If ever there was a motorcycle manufacturer that could be found guilty of willful temptation through the proffering of sheer beauty, it is MV Agusta. The company has a prolific history of decimating the learned restraints of maturity by building stellar machines, capable of driving Homo sapiens back to our most basic, primal impulses. This is no false predilection. The motorcycles are legendary for being as technically well-endowed as they are aesthetically pleasing.

Propagating the aforementioned, unabashed theory of a tangible connection between technology and emotion are three new MV Agusta models for 2020, intended for the discerning enthusiast: The Brutale 1000 RR Serie Oro. Superveloce 800 Serie Oro. And the Dragster 800 RR SCS.

The new machines continue a lineage of striking dynamic flow of design, imbuing the machines with an aesthetic of speed—an established piety of MV Agusta, building on the glory of their racing heritage.

Yes, motorcycles are visceral things. They take us back to the unbridled impulses of our youth, before reason and logic interfered with desires of the heart. MV Agusta stands as a pleasant, taunting rebellion to maturity, reminding us not to let our grown-up minds talk us out of too many indulgences.
