MV Agusta’s awesome bottle cap challenge

Motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta takes the viral bottle cap challenge to the next level

MV Agusta F3 800

The bottle cap challenge. Pretty much everyone with a smartphone and Instagram has seen the new viral dare, which all took flight when Jason Statham performed an incredible round-house kick on an unsuspecting water bottle. 

Whilst most people are happy to sit back, relax and not kick a bottle cap, MV Agusta had altogether different plans. 

As not to be left out of the party, MV enlisted the help of Pro Sportsbike Freestyler Thibaut Nogues, from the French Riviera.

At just 23 years old, Nogues, who is sponsored by MV Agusta, is killing the game (stunting speak), hustling the most exotic Italian machines you can buy and being entrusted to perform the popular bottle cap challenge.

The bike select to perform such a feat was a modified three-cylinder MV Agusta F3 800, which strays away from the commonly used 600cc motor used in stunt riding. The F3’s 800cc engine might be the best sounding motor on the planet, especially with an SC project exhaust strapped to the downpipes. 

Other modifications to Nogues’s F3 includes a larger rear sprocket, wider and taller clip-on bars, and most importantly big crash bungs.
