Four new 1000cc MVs on the way

Published: 20 March 2018

At the launch of the new Brutale 800RR, MV Agusta CEO, Giovanni Castiglioni, announced that there will be a trio of new litre bikes in the near future, as well as a special edition F4. Speaking in Italy, Castiglioni said the new 1000cc platform will debut at the EICMA motorcycle show in November. The first model will be a new 1000cc Brutale, described by Castiglioni being ‘[Leon] Camier’s World Superbike but without the fairings’.

The second model to follow the Brutale will be a ‘neo-classical’ café racer, which will debut in 2020. A replacement for the F4 superbike will not follow until 2021, due to development time and the current stagnant market for superbikes. Castiglioni has said it will be unlike anything they have produced before, eschewing WSB homologation rules to create what could be a 300bhp+ electric/petrol hybrid hyperbike. Unfortunately the current F4 is not Euro4-compliant, meaning MV will have to stop selling it at the end of the year. For those with very deep pockets however, there will be an alternative.

To close the current F4 lineage, MV Agusta also intend to produce a final edition ‘Claudio’ model, named after Giovanni’s late father Claudio Castiglioni. The ‘Claudio’ will basically be a WSB-spec race bike with a set of a lights, plus carbon fibre wheels and a host of other special trinkets. The ‘Claudio’ mirrors the original F4, which also ended with the ‘Claudio Castiglioni edition’ as a swan song. No price has yet been confirmed, but like the original we expect it to be fairly eye-watering…
