Designer David Yurman Gets His Hands On The MV Agusta Brutale 800
We’re not sure if we’ve mentioned this before, but we’ve always been huge fans of the MV Agusta Brutale 800 – a bike that looks absolutely incredible in its original form, and even better when it’s customized by a skilled aftermarket specialist.
But we have to admit we were really surprised to see a high-end jewelry designer teaming up with a bike shop to work his magic on this ravishing bike. His idea of a custom MV Agusta Brutale 800 motorcycle seems to come from another era, a time when legendary 500cc two-stroke Grand Prix beasts ruled the earth, and that’s always a good thing, right?
The renowned American designer David Yurman and bike wizard Walt Siegl put their brilliant minds together, only to create this moving work of art. Packing a tuned down powerplant, capable of developing 154 ponies, this MV Agusta benefits from forged carbon parts that fully adorn the bike’s exterior and add to the exclusivity of this project.
Carbon fiber was the first choice when it came to decorative bits and pieces on the bike, such as the fenders, or the triple tree up front and the rearset. Obviously, money is no object, especially if you can’t afford this bike. However, admiring and appreciating a work of art may sometimes be free. Such is the case here.
