There it stood the masterpiece in blood red, I couldn’t take my eyes on it! Like some Picaso masterpiece I was just spellbound with its aura.
Well my fellow bikers, I ain’t diverting from motorcycles to sculptures, but my introduction to this story is truly about a new masterpiece by another Italian art lover like Pablo Picaso, the MV Agusta motorcycle company have officially unveiled the Rivale at the ongoing EICMA show.
MV have unveiled this ‘hypermotard-styled’ motorcycle in Milan – this will be the Italian marquess third addition to its three-cylinder range and boy it sure looks a stunner. It is the new eye candy from MV, engineers from MV have carried over their iconic three-exhaust pipe system. But when it comes to the rear end of the bike specially with the turn indicators, the bike has a lot in common with the Ducati Diavel which might be a big turn-off to MV Agusta loyalist.
However, the overall package looks quite stunning so far, and if the Varese brand ends up delivering a motorcycle close to what is represented here, it should have another clear winner on its hands. Sources have said to expect the MV Agusta Rivale to feature a stroked-out 800cc three-cylinder mill on similar lines like the Agusta Brutale 800, while availability date and price have not been revealed as of yet.
