Feast your eyes upon the Italian eye candy that is the 2021 MV Agusta Rush.
Begin Press Release:
Rush: Beast Mode
The history of MV Agusta has its roots in the pioneering aviation of the first decades of the last century.
The world of aeronautics has inspired its stylistic choices on many occasions, as well as giving life to some memorable models. The F4 Veltro, a tribute to a WWII fighter of the Italian Air Force is an example, as is the Brutale Starfighter and another F4, the Frecce Tricolori dedicated to the Italian Air Force Aerobatic Team, and emblem of the Italian spirit.
The inspiring principles of military fighters – power, manoeuvrability, extreme performance – come to life in the new MV Agusta Rush 2021. Its military colouring recalls the typical colours of fighter jets, while air intakes and vents report the warning yellow messages placed in proximity of the turbines.
As much as one may be enchanted by observing their aerodynamic shapes, engineering solution and cutting-edge mechanics, fighter aircraft remain devoted to maximum fighting efficiency. This time, however, we can imagine that they are not dropping bombs but emotions. Like the MV Agusta Rush 2021, a catalyst of unique sensations, which transcends the physical to cross over into dreamlike imagery whose boundaries appear blurred – ephemeral even.
The extreme scenery of the slopes of Etna, with its surreal colour contrasts, represents the ideal setting for portraying the Rush, whose material consistency is enhanced by the contrasts with the changing colours of the volcanic dust.
MV AGUSTA RUSH MY 21. THE MOST EXTREME NAKED OF ALL TIME
MV Agusta takes the ultra naked concept to an extreme with Rush. Created as a limited edition of just 300, this unique and exclusive bike raises the bar in terms of design and performance. Never has a naked boasted such an elevated style and finish. For 2021, Rush gets a number of updates that make it even sportier but also safer to use on the road. This bike is unrivalled on the market and comes with an equally exclusive kit to further heighten its performance and aesthetics.
STATE OF THE ART FOUR-CYLINDER ENGINE
An inline-four with radial valves and titanium connecting rods. The Rush engine a state-of-the-art homologated motorcycle engine.
Having undergone continual technological development, it takes another step in 2021, with new components that reduce internal friction. The extremely high-performance engine uses sophisticated materials and flaunts record-breaking power for a 1000 cc naked, delivering 208 HP at 13,000 rpm. Timing is updated, with the introduction of new cam phasing designed to offer more favourable torque at low/medium revs without detracting from the intense drive and acceleration that has always distinguished this engine. The use of a DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating for the surfaces of the valve buckets cuts down on friction and improves reliability.
The addition of new primary drive gearing helps reduce friction between the gears, while the clutch system has been strengthened to improve reliability, especially during the extreme starts guaranteed by Launch Control, while the third generation EAS 3.0 electronic gearbox has a new sensor for more precise shifting and more comfortable insertion. The four-exit exhaust, an unmistakeable MV Agusta trademark, is more eye-catching than ever on the Rush, its main collector boasting an updated structure that emphasises the unique sound of the four-cylinder, despite what is now a Euro 5 compliant engine.
MORE COMPLETE ELECTRONICS
The 2021 MV Agusta Rush electronics package continues to reach new evolutionary heights. The new IMU inertial platform allows for the real-time identification of the bike’s position in space, supplying very precise data to the ECU to swiftly manage every command.
Thanks to this new platform, the traction and FLC wheelie controls allow the rider to take advantage of every ounce of the bike’s power while staying extremely safe. MV Agusta has developed minimally invasive, high-performance commands that showcase the bike’s acceleration ability, with an FLC that doesn’t ‘cut off’ the wheelie but controls it. The ABS boasts a new Continental MK100 module complete with a cornering function to ensure ultimate braking control even at an angle. The 5.5” TFT display offers all kinds of information and is able to communicate with the MV Ride app, a real command centre that lets the user customise every aspect of the bike directly from their smartphone while also offering more ‘traditional’ functions, such as recording and sharing itineraries. Thanks to its mirroring function, the dashboard can be used as a navigator with turn-by-turn directions. Every function can be quickly accessed and navigated via the joystick on the left block.
A MORE COMFORTABLE, EFFICIENT FRAME
Extreme, compact, very lightweight, and featuring an unmistakeable forged rear wheel with the lenticular disc, the chassis of the MV Agusta Rush has always topped the hyper naked segment. Now, a few targeted structural updates make it even more drivable.
The electronically-controlled Öhlins EC suspension is fully adjustable to maximize rider feeling and comfort and improves load transfer control and the ability to dampen any unevenness, making the 2021 Rush an even more efficient bike. The full Brembo braking system with radial master cylinder and Stylema calipers is simply state of the art.
Absolutely unique, the Rush fully reflects the MV Agusta vision of building one-of-a-kind bikes. Every element of the superstructures is crafted in precious carbon, with unparalleled attention to detail. For 2021, the Rush stands out for its new and more ergonomic leather and Alcantara seat.
