MV Agusta has entered into a partnership with Hertz Ride and now offers a unique way to tour across select countries in Europe. Through the partnership, touring enthusiasts can now experience renting an MV Agusta straight out of its Varese factory range and ride it across Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Slovenia, and eventually, the United States.
At the moment, the new touring scheme starts in Italy and France offering the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 Lusso SCS and the Dragster 800 Rosso available to rent. By the 2021 riding season, the motorcycle rental service will be made available in Portugal and Spain, and hopefully later that year, in the United States as well.
The partnership allows adventure and travel enthusiasts not only the option of renting the motorcycles itself, but also the option of a guided, or self-guided tours in select destinations. Hertz has made sure that the bikes are equipped with all the bells and whistles to make the ride an unforgettable experience including keyless ignition, side panniers, a top case, and engine protection accessories to ensure comfort and safety. With that, every MV Agusta bike to be used will be suitable for whatever condition and situation, whether it’s just a short ride, two-way, or one-way motorcycle tour.
A typical day tour on an MV Agusta Dragster Rosso will start with a pick-up and return of the motorcycle to Milan. It would cost €197 or roughly around P12,000 per day allowing a 100 km mileage limit for the day tour. If you haven’t had any preparations for your tour, Hertz Ride can also provide you with shared routes, local attractions, restaurants, and hotels within the customer’s route. They can even provide you with a tour guide to make sure you don’t get lost in the ride.
It should be noted that MV Agusta isn’t the only motorcycle manufacturer to join the Hertz Ride program. BMW has also been offering some of its motorcycles like the F 850 GS and R 1250 GS with Hertz Ride. Nevertheless, it would still be nice to experience touring European destinations riding a piece of motorcycle art.
