For the third time already Italian motorbike manufacturer MV Agusta presents a special edition honouring F1 World Champion and brand ambassador Lewis Hamilton. It is based on the Brutale 800 RR and so it gets a three-cylinder engine with 798 cc, 140 PS and 87 newtonmeters of torque, combined with an electronic quick shift system for the gearbox and a multi-disk wet clutch with hydraulic actuation. The Italians say its topspeed is 151 mph while the dry weight is 172 kilograms.
The ALS Steel tubular trellis frame is painted in white, the telescopic shock absorbers are red and the few parts of bodywork mounted to the nearly naked bike show either ‘Pearl Shock Red’ or ‘Metallic Carbon Black’. In the contrary color all badges and letterings are shown, for example the number 44, used by Lewis Hamilton on his F1 cars. Even the Pirelli tires wrapped around the red rims show LH44 tire letterings. At the center of the handlebar sits a carbonfibre piece with ‘Brutale 800 RR – LH44 – Limited Edition’ lettering and the serial number of each individual bike. All together only 144 copies of this special edition will be made.
If you are interested in one of these special bikes you should speak to your MV Agusta dealer soon. Prices for the Brutale 800 RR LH44 start at 24,144 € plus taxes.
