MV AGUSTA has announced that the Rush 1000 hyper naked is to begin production in June this summer.

The news means that owners who have put deposits on the 1000cc “drag strip-inspired” machine should be arriving with owners from the end of June onwards.

The bike is a strictly limited edition version of the Brutale 1000 RR meaning eye-watering levels of performance, with over 200bhp and a claimed top speed of 300kph (186mph).

Aside from the bike’s blistering straight-line speed, it is also blessed with top-spec Öhlins semi-active suspension, a Bluetooth enabled TFT dash, LED cornering lights, and that unusual looking aerodynamic carbon fibre real wheel cover.

No official price for the bike is released, and sales are strictly limited to 300 units - if you have to ask the price… etc. There is though one bike for sale on the classic car and motorcycle sales site, for a snip at £29,290!
