New RVS#1 announced

MV Agusta is pleased to announce the official launch of RVS, Reparto Veicoli Speciali, the new “Limited Run” Division of MV Agusta. Marking this launch is the introduction and unveiling of the new RVS#1, the first product of the Limited Run Division.

RVS#1 is a unique bike built in MV Agusta’s new mechanical atelier, created by MV Agusta with CRC (Castiglioni Research Centre), a new division expressly dedicated to special bikes, completely hand-assembled.

Boasting 150 hp, the RVS#1 will be the most powerful bike within the MV three cylinder range and weigh just 160 kg. It’s the new standard regarding power-weight ratio, linking outstanding thermodynamic efficiency and super sports performance. A unique bike in terms of equipment, quality of component construction, design and performance.

The MV Agusta 3 cylinder engine has evolved thanks to mechanical refinement and material improvements resulting in a new Euro IV compliant engine with improved efficiency and quieter operation. MV also developed new specific engine ride modes to provide the customer with an exclusive driving experience.

The hand TIG welded chassis is light and designed specifically for unrivalled dynamic performance. The steel framework has been completed and enhanced with new aviation grade aluminium lateral plates. On the right side is milled the RVS#1 logo, whilst other specific production techniques have been used with detailed titanium plates mounted on the tank and “honeycomb” stitching on the ergonomic seat.

A stunning Titanium exhaust – included in the racing supplied kit – has been designed together with SC-Project. Developed specifically for the racetrack it offers increased performance and a dramatic weight saving over the stock item.

New CRC designed componentry includes the dashboard support, footpeg units, engine protectors and racing handlebars with modified clutch and braking systems incorporating Braking’s Sunstar Batfly brake discs.

Customized machined Kineo spoke wheels mounted with Pirelli MT 60 RS tyres accentuate RVS#1 performance and unique DNA.

RVS#1 takes aesthetics to new levels whilst not sacrificing efficiency and safety. The adaptable front headlight uses an integrated inertial system illuminating the individual L.E.D. units based on lean angle and velocity in order to provide enhanced illumination performance.

“One man, One bike”. Everything on the RVS#1 transmits exclusivity and excellence and is strictly ‘built-to-order’. Dedicated to the true supporters of MV Agusta family, only current or previous customers are eligible to order the motorcycle through their MV Agusta dealership. The RVS #1 will be available to order until the end of June 2017.
