Just when you think MV Agusta can’t possibly launch another limited-edition version of one of its bikes, another one crops up – and the Brutale is the latest in line for the treatment.

The all-white Brutale “By Percy” is an official link-up with Percy Irausquin, a fashion designer, who’s been personally responsible for removing every last trace of taste from the MV Agusta.

As well as hurling a bucket of whitewash over the bike, he’s added a leather seat – in white, of course, with gold stitching. Nice.

In case that’s not quite enough bling, the bike also comes with a 14-carat gold key. Apparently, Irausquin hoped to use a 24-carat  key, but found it would twist and snap off because the metal is too soft.

The firm doesn’t have high ambitions for the machine. Only three will be made, at a price of 26,999 Euros (£20,000). Which seems like rather a lot.

You do get a tailor-made set of leathers, presumably in white to go with the bike, or if the buyer is female she has the option of a tailor-made Percy Irausquin dress instead.
