I am going to be real honest with you right now. For a story touting a cheaper price point for three of MV Agusta’s most popular models, we were a little disappointed to see that the actual pricing information wasn’t included in the press package. Just saying, it seems kind of important.
That being said, if we take MV Agusta at its word, the Varesini brand just made it easier to put a Brutale 800, Dragster 800, or Turismo Veloce 800 in your garage, with the company’s new “Rosso” lineup of bike.
As the name implies, the big new feature for these models is their all-red paint jobs, though the keen eye will notice some other changes to help ease them into a lower price point.
The biggest tip-off is the wheels, which have less machining on their cast aluminum bodies, and thus are all black.
MV Agusta says that it has also found more efficient manufacturing processes on the Rosso models, which has allowed it to offer them for cheaper amounts.
Other than that, the bikes seem pretty unchanged from their compatriots, and still feature the same 108 hp (81 kW) three-cylinder engine, with the MVICS 2.0 electronics package, that we know and love.
Just to be clear, you can get one of the three Rosso models in any color you like, so long as it’s red. We will update this story with pricing information, just as soon as we get it from MV Agusta.
