MV Agusta tease new RVS
Italian firm MV Agusta have relased a short video teasing a new model dubbed RVS, which stands for Reparto Veicoli Speciali, or Special Vehicles Operations in English.
MV Agusta have released no details about the new model, and the 37 second video clip only shows a dimly lit clip of the bike. From that dimly lit shot we can see the new model appears to be based on the Dragster. The new model also wears tyres with a lot more tread, hinting at off-road style and capability.

The front headlight also seems different, with the iconic MV Agusta item replaced by a more traditional looking piece. No details for a release date or official unveiling have been announced.
But aren't MV Agusta in trouble?
In March last year MV Agusta were forced to implement a company restructure in the face of rising debts, but boss Giovani Castiglioni told MCN in September 2016 that the company was back on track.
Speaking at the time Castiglioni said: Castiglioni said: "We are still working on the final elements of restructuring the company in order for it to become a smaller company that is focused on our core markets like the Brutale models, our three-cylinder bikes and bikes like the Dragster, which have been selling very well."
