2012 EICMA Beauty Queen Announced: MV Agusta Rivale 800
With a huge support from 35.5% of the EICMA attendees who voted, the 2013 MV Agusta Rivale 800 has literally smashed the competing bikes. Runner-ups such as Ducati Hypermotard SP and the all-new 2013 BMW R1200GS have reached 22.9% and 15.5%, respectively.
Giovanni Castiglioni, President & CEO of MV Agusta declared that such an award is even more tasteful after the 2010 one granted to the F3 675. And by all means, it's really nice to win these accolades with the next completely new bike, especially when duelling with brands like Ducati.
We're now waiting to see how this new, extreme motard will behave on track and streets, because beauty with no serious street-proven backup is not enough; at least not in the world of motorcycles.
