This beast of a machine, MV Agusta RVS#1 is a limited edition offering
Built by MV Agusta’s new mechanical atelier and created along with Castiglioni Research Centre (CRC), the RVS#1 is, in fact, the first product from Brand RVS that operates as a new division that is dedicated to delivering special bikes that are completely hand built.
Tuned for agility
Touted to be the most powerful bike in the MV Agusta three-cylinder range, the RVS#1 comes fitted with a new Euro IV compliant engine that delivers 150 hp. Take into consideration that the bike only weighs 160 kilos and you can see that it has an amazing power-to-weight ratio which translates to an exhilarating riding experience that matches super sports performance. The engine is also touted to be rather efficient for its class and is quieter with respect to other three-cylinder motorcycle engines. Apart from that the RVS#1 also comes with specific ride modes that allow the owner to set up the bike to their current riding conditions.
The chassis of the MV Agusta RVS#1 has been crafted to offer an unrivalled riding experience. The steel framework has been enhanced with aviation grade aluminium lateral plates, there are titanium plates mounted within the tank and the seat boasts of a honeycomb stitch that is said to offer better comfort and ergonomics. The RVS#1 also gets a titanium exhaust that has been developed for the race track and also helps in reducing weight. Other CRC designed elements include the dashboard support, footpegs, engine protectors and racing bars. The bike also boasts of custom machined Kineo spoked wheels that come fitted with Pirelli MT 60 RS tyres.
