Cayenne motorcycle dealers throw down the gauntlet
THE sales team at Kyalami do not just want to sell their MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR and Dragster 800 RR.
Instead, they want to prove they are the best and have issued a challenge to this effect to retailers of all other bikes.
MV Augusta SA sales manager and co-owner of Cayenne World Craig Langton said the sales team are all keen riders, led by sales manager Clinton Seller, who is the current SA national champion. “They are all aware that the new three-cylinder MVA 800 RRs will match and beat all the larger 1 000 cc four-cylinder competitors.
“We will accept any challenge from our competitors, what the 800 RRs may, and I say may, lack in top-end they will make up in their light weight and handling,” said Langton.
The best thing about the two RR motorcycles is the new MVICS 2.0 system, which optimises engine response at any rpm, adjusting output and further improving the already impressive stride of the MV Agusta three cylinder models.
The EAS 2.0 quickshifter is part of the standard equipment that makes the RR units so exclusive: it provides electronic assistance not only in the gear selection phase but also when downshifting.
It works in the Sport and Custom maps as long as the speed is above 30 km/h. It revolutionises one’s approach to riding. First and foremost, it optimises shifting times when riding sportily: at the same time it increases comfort if you are using the bike in the city or for touring. Last but not least, the Brutale 800 RR is even more attentive to ergonomics: the seat has been reshaped to be more comfortable, functional and attractive.
There are six models of the MV Agusta 800s, all on sale at Cayenne dealers.
MV Agusta 800 prices:
• Rivale 800 Sport R149 900
