The MV Agusta One is a spectacular creation of Turin-based Officine GP Design. Even better, it is already in pre-production, so it’s just a matter of time until you will enjoy riding this radical beast. Based on the MV Agusta Brutale 800, the custom project that resulted is a machine designed for solo, exclusivist fun which will probably raise the bar and customer expectation for future bikes – custom or stock.
The One project retains the modern air and the classic Italian design we all know and love, but comes up with some new ideas. The exposed trellis frame and sculpted seat are wonderful, providing riders with the classic sport styling they desire. Officine GP Design blended cutting edge digital technology with a classic bike, with the beingg the first motorcycle in the world arriving with an iPad integrated into the build ex works.
The dash of the Brutale 800 was scrapped and the iPad integrated seamlessly within the bike. This means that the MV Agusta One can also link to the internet and iPhone, to say the least. The software was developed in-house, and is much more than a simple app which displays info. Users can interact with it, change its looks, use geolocation services for common online actions and emergency situations and so much more. Obviously, navigation is part of the package.
Old-school fans will appreciate the fact that Officine GP Design went maniacal on this bike and manually crafted as many components as possible, such as the tail section, the fuel tank and so on. The paint technique is a Officine GP Design original, allowing the base brushed aluminium satin texture to shine through. The headlight comprises 12 LED elements grouped together in a custom made billet aluminium casing, while multiple Rizoma hardware parts can be spotted all over the bike, plus sump shields and a MotoGP-spec ProGuard brake guard.
No hints about the price-tag, yet.
