It's nowhere near the first time when MV Agusta and Pirelli work together, as their collaboration extends for decades into the past. Both brands are well-recognized throughout the industry for the way they manage to bring together production excellence and stylish design, and the Diablo Brutale is the epitome of their current status.

This Brutale 800 is a one-off machine that stands as a tribute to the design, sportiveness and high technology of Pirelli's latest supersport tire, Diablo Rosso III. The Diablo Brutale machine comes with a special, unique livery that was conceived to match the attire of the tires to perfection.

The signature tubular trellis frame exhibits a racey, fiery red color that is complemented by various other accents and the Diablo Rossi lettering on the tank. Similar accents are present on the front fender, underseat and tail section, and they are synced to the red markings on the tires and the rim stripes. Intentionally, the tank and fender decorations boast the typical "thunder" groove of the Pirelli tread pattern, itself a trademark.

Brutale 800's base project started to take form in 2001, by the way, and the most recent incarnation of this machine introduces a very neat design language. Even though in the video it is difficult to spot the hollow space in the rear subframe, the studio photo will reveal this construction particularity.

The Diablo Rosso retains that negative space, and we simply love it. MV Agusta could do well and rethink the exclusiveness of this Brutale, as they will certainly find more than a few customers willing to pay a small premium for such a trick beast.
