If you know anything about MV Agusta motorcycles, you know that styling is a crucial feature. As a result, the company produces some of the most visually striking bikes on the planet.
And one of the driving forces of aesthetically gorgeous machines from Bimota, Ducati, and MV Agusta was Massimo Tamburini. His pen gave us bikes like the Ducati 851/888, Ducati 916, MV Agusta F3, MV Agusta F4, and MV Agusta Brutale. But unfortunately, Massimo is no longer with us. He passed away on April 6, 2014.
But MV Agusta would still like their bikes to continue their Tamburini heritage. So they have hired Massimo’s son, Andrea Tamburini, to update their Brutale model for its 20th anniversary.
Over time, the Brutale has evolved. Since its introduction as a competitor to Ducati’s 798 cc Monster, the Brutale has become larger and more powerful. The current Brutale is an angular 208 hp hyper-naked machine, making it one of the most powerful in its class.
And now, MV Agusta is announcing that Andrea Tamburini will have the opportunity to give the Brutale model line an update. They have issued a video titled “T01 Project by Tamburini Corse” that provides glimpses of the bodywork for the soon-to-be restyled machines.
The announcement may have significant meaning for the upcoming EICMA show. Rumors already say that MV Agusta may reveal a resurrected version of the F4 model. It was that model that brought MV Agusta back into the limelight after several years in the shadows.
Perhaps, we’ll also get a better look at the redesigned Brutale at EICMA as well?
