MV Agusta has a penchant for super limited edition motorcycles that would otherwise be out of reach to most ordinary folks. Take for example the Superveloce Serie Oro and the Rush 1000, gorgeous bikes in their own right but the chances of seeing one in our shores would be akin to spotting a snow leopard in the wild. You can consider these machines as Italian mythical pieces of motorcycle art as you would be unsure if you’d be able to see one in the metal during your lifetime. Yet MV Agusta has outdone themselves again by unveiling another motorcycle like no other, quite literally as they’ produced just one unit of the Brutale 1000 RR Blue & White M.L.
However, besides the bike being a gorgeous commissioned work by a mysterious person M.V. Agusta is yet to disclose, the bike also reminds us of a very unique time in sports history. The Brutale 1000 RR Blue and White M.L. is inspired by yet another legendary limited MV Agusta motorcycle, the Brutale 910R Italia. This was the motorcycle that was made in celebration of the Italian’s victory in winning the 2006 FIFA World Cup. During this time, each of the members of the winning football team was given an MV Agusta Brutale 910R Italia which had the same livery of their Azzurri blue colors that their uniform had after beating France in a penalty shootout. Of course, one would never forget Zinadine Zidane’s famous headbutt to Marco Materazzi which happened during the match.
Just like the 910R Italia, the Brutale 1000 RR Blue & White M.L. has the same Azzurri blue and white livery with gold accents and Italian stripes running down the tank. The motorcycle also comes with a matte gold-coated frame and swingarm plates, forged aluminum rims, super-intelligent electronic assistance, and other bits of premium hardware. It is powered by the same 998cc, inline-four engine capable of producing 208 hp and 117 Nm of torque seen in the Brutale 1000. Rumor has it that the bike was actually commissioned by Marcello Lippi, the former head coach that led the team to the 2006 World Cup championship.
