MV Agusta La Rouge breaks cover

The bike is a custom project built by a Swiss dealer with the F3 sportsbike as the basis of the machine

MV Agusta

WHEN it comes to stunning motorcycles from every angle, very few manufacturers can hold a candle to the bikes produced in the small factory based on the banks of lake Verese. MV Agusta has been churning out gorgeous pieces of motorcycle art since 1945, with the latest models from the company blurring the lines between motorcycle and art even further!

Another route to creating stunning machines that showcase the skills at Varse is seen below, in the form of this dealer-built special edition from Tricana Motorcycles from Lausanne, Switzerland.

The bike is built around the chassis and engine of the F3 675. From there, Tricana shaped a one-off custom bike, with the neo-classic lines that the Superveloce is bringing to the mainstream market in both limited edition and full-production forms.

The team at Tricana also went all out on the detailing of the bike, with a custom-built, hand-stitched seat looking like the crowing the svelte, custom-built seat unit nicely.

Another neat feature of the bike is the stylised take on the MV Agusta exhaust, keeping the stacked triple pipes, of the original bike, but making them look more refined and subtle. The clutch on the La Rouge looks like it could be one of the Rekluse clutches from the larger Turismo Veloce SCS, although it could also be a clear Perspex cover. Rounding off the machine is a set of wide-laced spoked wheels, race footrests and the headlight from the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce.
