MV Agusta pull covers off ultra-limited edition Brutale 1000 RR ML
MV Agusta have revealed an ultra-exclusive version of their flagship Brutale 1000 RR hypernaked on Facebook. In fact, it doesn’t get more exclusive than this – the bike is number 001/001.
Along with the distinctive blue and white paintjob featuring Tricolore highlights, the frame and swingarm plates are finished in matte gold, and so are the forged aluminium wheels complete with black spoke inserts.
Underneath the bling the bike looks the same as a standard Brutale 1000 RR, which uses a 998cc transverse inline-four engine producing a claimed 205bhp, cutting edge electronics and Öhlins suspension.

The new limited edition carries the suffix ‘ML’ and draws inspiration from several previous special MV Agustas including the Brutale 910R Italia model produced to commemorate Italy winning the 2006 football World Cup. MV’s owner at the time, Claudio Castiglioni gave each of the Italian players and head coach a Brutale Italia complete with a plaque featuring their name.
This bike was actually commissioned by a customer (whose initials are ‘ML’) and so it will never hit the market. MV remain tight-lipped about who the buyer is but the Italian national team head coach in 2006 was Marcello Lippi.
