2021 MV Agusta Rush 1000 Unveiled


Italian motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta has unveiled the 2021 limited edition MV Agusta Rush 1000. The bike has been updated and now confirms to Euro 5 regulations. Just 300 units of the limited-edition hyper naked bike based on the Brutale 1000RR and Brutale Serie Oro will be made, as before. With top speeds of around 300 kmph, these hyper naked motorcycles are renowned for being some of the fastest naked motorcycles available. The limited edition hyper naked Rush 1000 gets a reworked engine, lean-sensitive electronics, and a distinctive colour scheme for 2021.

The engine is the same 998 cc liquid-cooled DOHC inline four that produces 205 bhp at 13,000 rpm and 116 Nm at 11,000 rpm. Internal improvements, such as Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coating on the valve buckets and lower friction primary drive gearing, are made to the engine to improve performance.


According to MV Agusta, the frame and Ohlins suspension have also been modified to increase rideability. The 6-speed transmission has also been revamped, and thanks to a new shift sensor, the revised quickshifter helps to provide more accurate gear changes. Brembo Stylema callipers, twin 320 mm discs, and steel braided lines are all part of the braking system.

The bike’s electronics have also been upgraded, including a new IMU with cornering functions. My MV App compatibility is now available via a new 5.5-inch TFT dash, allowing riders to change settings remotely. Customers who purchase the Rush 1000 will also receive a wooden box containing a race package with a SC exhaust and a dedicated racing ECU that boosts power to 209 bhp.


In Europe, the 2021 MV Agusta Rush 1000 would cost roughly 38,000 Euros and it is unlikely to be launched in India. After splitting up with Kinetic MotoRoyale, MV Agusta has yet to resume operations in India.
