MV Agusta has revealed it’s accepting pre-orders on its limited edition Brutale 800 RR LH44, a model takes influence from four-time Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton.

The Brutale 800 RR LH44 is a truly formidable 140-horsepower sports naked with the lightest engine and the most advanced technology used today on production bikes, including the counter-rotating crankshaft and quick-shift system EAS 2.0. The extremely limited model will go into production in this month with only a limited number of 144 to be built.

Similar to how the two previous Hamilton models came to be, the Brutale 800 RR LH44 is the result of a creative process that relied on an unfiltered interaction between the F1 champion and the MV Agusta Design Center (CRC).

Lewis is not only known for his extraordinary race results but also renowned for his creativity, style and attention to detail. Joining together with CRC, which is better known as a design studio and technology factory that nurtures engineers’ and designers’ imagination, would only assure the unique partnership would breathe life to a special MV Agusta.

In this unique project, MV Agusta used new materials and components never been utilised on production naked bikes, such as an extensive use of specially designed carbon fibre components, unique colour scheme graphics and a truly exclusive ceramic-based coating that is resistant to ultra-high temperatures on the exhaust system.

Also included are numerous components machined from light alloy billet. Eye-catching details up front include the brake and clutch levers and fluid reservoir caps. The tank cap, like the engine oil filler cap, has also been CNC machined. Added panache also comes from the CNC clutch cover guard as well as the alternator guard.

The inspiration for the colour scheme – a blend of black, red and white – was drawn from the iconic Lewis Hamilton style. The graphics emphasize the dynamic design and are finished off by the Lewis Hamilton logo and his race number, 44.

To complete the unique Brutale 800 RR LH44, each motorcycle is identified as belonging to the limited 144-bike edition by the progressive number on the instrument cluster fairing and will come with a certificate of authenticity.

The new Brutale 800 RR LH44 is now available to order in Australia and New Zealand, and comes with a three-year warranty and three-year customer care program. For more information, visit www.mvagusta.com.au.
