The 1,084cc parallel-twin engine in the Honda Africa Twin 1100 is a sweetheart of a motor, and so it doesn’t surprise us to see Honda using it on bikes like the Honda Rebel 1100.

Working out of the Barber Advanced Design Center, Pierre Terblanche has set to doing this very task though, with the public getting their first glimpse of this endeavor today.

A collaboration between the Nordschleife and MV Agusta sees us today talking about the aptly named MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Nürburgring – the most extreme Brutale 1000 built to date.

This limited edition machine features carbon fiber BST wheels, for better turning and less unsprung weight.

A single-can full titanium Arrow exhaust is also a highlight, and uses a longer primary manifold for higher torque values. A “race” ECU is also included in the package.
