Velocity Pvt. Ltd., the authorized distributor of MV Agusta Motorcycles, has launched the uber-exclusive MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR LH44 at the 2019 NADA Auto Show. Priced at a whopping Rs 73,90,000, the Brutale 800RR LH44 available in Nepal is one of its kind – the only unit in South Asia.
Born from the collaboration with Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton, this naked machine carries the British driver’s initials and bristles with features. Only 144 bikes will be made, each with Hamilton’s race number “44”. Each of the 144 units sold will come with a numbered certificate of authenticity that matches the bike’s production number which is printed on the carbon fiber headlight shroud.
MV Agusta’s official press release says the Brutale 800 RR LH44 is “the result of a creative process that relies on unfiltered interaction between Lewis Hamilton and MV Agusta Design Centre (CRC)”. The colour scheme is inspired by the celebrated F4 LH44 and replicates its black, red and white livery. The graphics enhance the typical aggressiveness of the Brutale design, which is further elevated by Lewis Hamilton’s logo and racing number.
The Brutale 800 RR LH44 gets a black, red, and white paint scheme with graphics including Hamilton’s logo and race number 44. MV Agusta claims to have built certain components with rare materials. This includes the specially-designed carbon fiber components and a ceramic-based coating. Components such as the brake and clutch levers, as well as fluid reservoir caps, are machined from lightweight alloy billet. The tank cap, engine oil filter cap, clutch cover guard and alternator guard are all CNC-machined.
MV Agusta says the Euro 4 inline-three-cylinder engine has “undergone extensive technical updating”. The horsepower remains same at 140hp with a top speed of 244km/h. It also has a compact and lightweight two-channel ABS 9 Plus that features Rear Wheel Lift-up Mitigation to control the pressure on the front brake and avoid rear wheel lift-up.
Velocity Pvt. Ltd. has been operating in Nepal since 2017. With over 20 MV Agusta Motorcycles on the Road, Velocity has introduced the latest 2019 range of motorcycles such as the Sports Touring – Turismo Veloce 800, Super Sport – F3 675, and the Hyper Naked – Brutale 800.
