MV Agusta Brutale 800 Becomes Officine GP Design Motul Onirika 2853

The Motor Bike Show 2016 in Verona, Italy, saw Ducati introducing their draXter, but that wasn't the only striking presence. The Motul Onirika 2853 is a custom MV Agusta created by Officine GP Design, a workshop run by brothers Luca and Fabio Pozzato, and if you're into radical expensive bikes, this is the perfect machine.

Onirika 2853 was commissioned by lubricant specialists Motul and will be auctioned for charity. The proceedings will go to Motul's Corazon non-profit organization that supports underprivileged children. We're hunting for the auction details and will bring them to you as well.

Onirika's name deals with dreams and it suits the build quite well. It looks like a bike that could be a part of someone's dream... even though some might say that it looks more nightmare-ish, with all the in-your-face design solutions implemented by the Italian workshop.

As for the name, things are getting a bit mystical. Motul was founded in 1853 and the number in Onirika's moniker symbolizes permanence. You are most likely familiarized with the strength some offered to the number 1000. Do thousand-year empires ring a bell?Officine GP Design retained the MV Agusta engine and frame, the rest is bespoke
Little from the original Brutale 800 machine remains, with the triple-cylinder 798cc engine and the frame being the only things that were kept as they were. The rest was fabricated for this special project, and it caused the final result to stray from the path MV Agusta got us used to.

The Brutale 800 transformed into an even more menacing roadster with a certain dab of elegant rat vibe to it, combined into a mix that brings together post-apocalyptic lines, a bit of retro road-racing design and even a shadow of cyber-art.

Water-transfer black and white paint complements the grey, sober attire, with bronze accents from the machined elements. The seat cover is going to spark a lot of discussions, and whoever decides to pull the trigger on this bike AND ride it will surely feel a bit weird after several miles, to say the least.

Ultimately, the extra-thick brake lines are an interesting take, while the metal mesh used in the headlight looks ratty enough, and we're curious to see how well they light the road at night. Wonder how much Motul is expecting the Onirika 2853 to fetch at the auction...
