FIRST LOOK: MV Agusta 921 S Concept

For those who attended the EICMA show in Milan, you’ll noticed that MV Agusta did not participate in this year edition. 

  • MV Agusta 921 S is an all-new motorcycle set to roll out in a few years time. 
  • Inspired by the glorious MV Agusta 750 Sport of the 70s. 

However, the Varese company did hold a press conference to encapsulate their production plans for 2023 which include the 921 S concept bike. 

According to MV Agusta, the 921 S is an all-new motorcycle that departs from the rest of the Italian product range. That said, the motorcycle combines the Italian firm’s past footprint with modern technology. 

Interestingly, the 1970 MV Agusta 750 Sport was the inspiration behind the 921 S Project therefore you can easily notice a glimpse of the past including the red, silver, white and blue colour combination and the exposed frame.

While the overall look is nothing short of moden and futuristic the minimalistic design bring forth a classic Italian steed. 

The 921 S features a completely new open-cradle type frame with steel-tube-trellis design that incorporates billet-aluminium rear plate and a supporting subframe. 

The frame houses an engine that is based on an earlier generation Brutale 1000 RR that has been significantly reworked to give it a traditional streetbike appeal.  The 921cc engine makes a solid 115hp @ 10,000rpm and 118Nm of peak torque @ 7,000rpm. 

In addition, the 921 S also has a longer wheelbase that spans 1465mm, that’s 50mm more than the Brutale 1000 RR. 

 Suspending the MV Agusta 921 S is a top-of-the-line Ohlins front and rear suspension with a 41mm NIX-cartridge design that offers a fully adjustable compression and rebound damping. 

Meanwhile, the rear gets a fully adjustable TTX36 shock. 

As usual, the MV Agusta 921 S gets premium components including twin Brembo Stylema four-pot callipers at the front and a two-piston Brembo at the rear with 320mm and 220mm rotors, respectively. The bike is also shod with 120/70-17 front and 180/55-17 rear wheels. 

Take a closer look at the front wheel you’ll noticed that the 921 S is equipped with a massive aluminium flange that helps to direct air intake to cool the rotor. 

Unfortunately, there’s no telling when MV Agusta 921 S will actually makes it to the production stage and how much will it go for.
