Moto.it has captured photos of the forthcoming MV Agusta Rivale testing in Italy. No real surprise here, MV itself has announced that the bike is entering production later this year, but it’s nice seeing it in validation prototype form, seemingly unchanged from the concept model that was shown at EICMA last year. Weighing in at 374lbs (dry) and making 125bhp from its 800cc triple, the Rivale rivals the new Ducati Hypermotard.

    Between the blatantly stolen Diavel taillights, the batmobile front fender, and the barnacle rear-end, it’s just a mess. The MV designers should be ashamed of themselves.

      I agree, the bike looks like someone just couldn’t stop “designing” it.

      Like a spoiled soup with way too many ingredients.

    The diff between this teaser release photo and that spy shot is bar lighting and about 8 beers

    Its good to see MV building new bikes. They should have given this one some more (symbolical) off road ability. Like a scrambler kind of thing…

    There is hardly any difference between this and the brutal models.
