We had our first look at the 2020 MV Agusta Rush 1000 late last year, and we ran down its stunning list of capabilities. The motor puts out a claimed peak of 208 horsepower at the crank, with a top speed in excess of 186 mph. If that’s not enough, the optional Racing Kit pushes maximum output to 212 horsepower. These numbers put the Rush 1000 into rarefied company in the naked upright sportbike world.

There are all sorts of electronics available, including eight levels of traction control, Bosch 9 Plus Race ABS, up/down quickshifter, wheelie control, launch control, and electronically active Öhlins EC suspension.

The Race Kit includes a titanium dual-exhaust muffler with a carbon fiber cover sporting CNCed billet aluminum inserts. A special ECU takes advantage of the muffler’s flow characteristics. As you’ll likely be flying solo with the Race Kit, the passenger seat gets a carbon fiber cover.

Based on the MV Agusta Brutale 1000, the Rush 1000 also gets a number of special styling details. The front wheel is a wire-spoke design, the rear of the motorcycle is cleaned up considerably, lots of titanium fasteners, a new five-inch TFT display, and the paint is exclusive to the Rush 1000.

The Rush 1000 is something of a statement motorcycle for MV Agusta. “With the production of the Rush 1000 starting this coming June, we are right on track with respect to our five-year industrial plan announced a few weeks ago,” says MV Agusta Motors CEO Timur Sardarov. “As we are breaking new ground in our expansion journey into new segments and new markets, MV Agusta will continue to produce amazing works of exclusive motorcycle art from its headquarters in Italy, remaining true to its heritage of performance, elegance, and state-of-the-art technology. I am sure this incredibly attractive model will meet the enthusiasm of the proud new owners.”
