MV Agusta President Giovanni Castiglioni and CEO Massimo Bordi had mentioned that there would be a highly extroverted, supermoto-inspired model in the Three line. And the new Rivale (Rival) 800 is exactly that. It’s also a smart investment for MV Agusta, in that it’s based on the engine and rolling gear of the F3 and Brutale 675 and 800. The MV Agusta F3/Brutale 675 chassis is absolutely excellent, and the engine is great in its 675cc or stroked 800cc form (79mm x 54.3mm), which puts out 125 hp at 11,600 rpm and 60 ft.-lb. of torque at 8600 rpm. The Brutale 800’s full electronic suite has been adopted, which includes ride-by-wire, traction control and selectable mapping and all.
