Moto Varese Asiatic Sdn Bhd (MV Agusta Malaysia) has recently launched the new MV Agusta Lifestyle Centre located in Amari Business Park near Batu Caves, Selangor.

The new lifestyle centre / concept store comprises of the MV Agusta showroom plus service centre to cater to the central region of Malaysia.

The new showroom is currently offering six models which include the Brutale 800, Brutale 1090, Brutale Dragster RR, Turismo Veloce, Turismo Veloce Lusso RC and F4RR.

Moto Varese Asiatic Sdn Bhd (MV Agusta Malaysia) who was recently appointed as MV Agusta’s sole distributor and assembler here in Malaysia has officially opened the MV Agusta Lifestyle Centre earlier today. The new showroom, concept store cum service centre is located at the Amari Business Park near Batu Caves, Selangor.

The launch was officiated by the Director of Automotive Engineering, Road Transport Department Malaysia, YBhg. Dato’ Ir. Hj. Mohamad Dalib together with the Executive Director DNC Asiatic Holdings Sdn. Bhd, Ms Hu Ying and special guest ; Mr. Raffaele Giusta, Director of Sales and Marketing, MV Agusta Motor S.p.A.

The Managing Director of Moto Varese Asiatic, Mr. Muhamad Zamry Abu Samah mentioned, “There are currently six new models that are available and there will be six (6) more to arrive before end of this year, to complete the range.”

“However, these do not include the limited edition that will be made available by special request. The available models are CKD units such as Brutale 800, Brutale 1090, Brutale Dragster RR, Turismo Veloce, Turismo Veloce Lusso RC and F4RR. The prices start from RM90,000”.

During the launch, the newly launched MV Agusta Lifestyle Centre also unveiled the latest MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster RR for the first time in Malaysia in all its glory. The bike made its first appearance during last year’s EICMA show held in Milan, Italy.

The latest addition to the Brutale family is powered by a Euro4-compliant 798cc, inline-three engine that produces a blistering 140hp at a high 13,100rpm and 86Nm of exhilarating torque upon hitting 10,100rpm.

To further tame and control all that power and torque so that it won’t be too overwhelming, the Dragster 800 RR comes with the second generation MVCIS full ride-by-wire engine management system which comprises of eight different intervention levels of traction control.

Although this new system makes the new Dragster a much easier beast to tame, it doesn’t mean that the fun factor has been taken away. With its second generation MV Agusta electronically-assisted quickshifter lets you rip through the gears without engaging the clutch lever even for downshifts.

We’ve been adequately informed that the new Dragster RR can reach speeds up to 245km/h but with all the refinements plus a dry weight of only 168kg, hitting that top speed is faster than you scream “WohoooOOooo!”

It is also worth pointing out that Mr Zamri has stated that he and his team will be putting more emphasis on further enhancing the brand’s after sales service as well as parts prices to ensure that current and future MV Agusta motorcycles owners won’t be too burdened especially with rumours going around that the cost of owning an MV Agusta motorcycle will burn a huge hole in your wallet.

The very near future will see more showrooms / lifestyle centres being opened especially in Johor Bahru, Johor and Kota Bharu, Kelantan. There are also plans to further expand MV Agusta’s presence over in Sabah and Sarawak as early as 2018.

To know more about the bikes, you may head over to the new MV Agusta Lifestyle Centre will be opened daily on Monday to Friday from 9.00am until 7.00pm.
