We have mentioned already that MV Agusta is getting ready to make an all-new F4 superbike, and from which a new liter-displacement Brutale as well.

Today, we get the first official word of these new machines, as Giovanni Castiglioni confirmed the new models at the company’s “Friends of Claudio” yearly gathering.

For bonus points, Castiglioni also mentioned that a third “crossover” model would be coming from the Italian brand, making for three all-new 1,000cc models from MV Agusta for 2016.

This announcement should be welcomed news for Italian motorcycle fans, as MV Agusta’s four-cylinder offerings have certainly stagnated, while its three-cylinder models have gotten all the attention from the press and riding public.

While it will be easy to imagine what MV Agusta has in store for its new F4 and Brutale, it will be interesting to see what the Italian company does with its crossover model.

Smart money would be put on a 1,000cc / four-cylinder version of the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800, which would go toe-to-toe with the recently released BMW S1000XR and the venerable Ducati Multistrada 1200.

Could MV Agusta have something else of its sleeve? Time will tell. Stay tuned.
