MV Agusta collabs with the famed Nürburgring racing circuit to create a limited edition piece of rolling motorcycle art – the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Nürburgring.
One could be forgiven for thinking MV Agusta’s sole purpose in life is to devise new and fancy ways of parting you with your hard earned money. After all, this is the company that produced the F4 CC, the F3 Serie Oro and the Superveloce, all rolling art works that serve just as good a purpose in your living room as they do on the open road. And now the sultans of style from Varese in northern Italy have channeled perhaps the most famous name in motor racing history for the most extreme Brutale ever — the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Nürburgring.
As part of a collaboration with the mythical racing venue an hour south of Cologne in Germany, MV Agusta will be creating 150 examples of the brand new Brutale 1000 Nürburgring for purchase at a gobsmacking price of $41,700 MSRP here in the U.S., secured only after depositing 10,000 Euro directly with the factory.
And as you would expect for such a pricey premium, the Brutale 1000 Nürburgring is quite the spicy ride indeed. Resplendent is beautiful red, black and silver paint to match the logo of the Nürburgring, the machine draws its heritage from the Brutale 1000 RR (which we’ll be testing in the coming weeks here at SBI), gaining the same 208 hp inline four-cylinder motor that gets boosted to 212 hp when you fit the sexy single barrel Akrapovic exhaust and the supplied race ECU.
The Brutale 1000 Nürburgring has gone on a serious diet, shedding a claimed 20 pounds over the RR via plenty of carbon fiber lashings, most notably in the BST wheels which are possibly the best looking rollers on the market with a gold flake laced throughout.
Ohlins supplies the suspension in the Smart EC software for the 43 mm NIX fork and TTX shock, with Brembo’s finest in the Stylema four-piston radially-mounted front calipers hauling you up at speed.
No doubt when you throw more than $40K at a street motorcycle such as this, you’re going to want the Race Kit. Lucky for you, you get it as part of the price!
Coming as a separate piece you get from MV Agusta in a beautiful Race Kit box, you get the race ECU, that beautiful Akrapovic titanium exhaust, as well as a carbon passenger seat cover and race kit numbered certificate. It’s nice to see MV throw that stuff at you essentially for free.
If you want one of these ridiculously sexy MV’s you’ll have to be quick. MV has done extremely well to sell out these limited edition machines ultra-quick, and hey, Christmas is coming so why not treat yourself?
