2013 MV Agusta Rivale 800

A new segment. A new reference. A new MV Agusta.

The Rivale 800. Absolute enjoyment.

MV Agusta Rivale 800. Unique both in design, performance, and absolute riding satisfaction. Unquestionably MV Agusta, Rivale 800 enters a new market segment to go where only emotions dominate. This extraordinary motorcycle boasts performance figures that leave little to the imagination: 170 kg, 125 hp.


The unrivalled visual identity has been extended to every component and every surface of this machine. The MV Agusta Rivale 800 is a result of passion, experience, and inspiration to capture the essence of what is truly representative of our historic brand. It further expands upon our range with a new, eclectic interpretation of our modern three-cylinder engine that debuted on the F3 675 and also equips the Brutale 675 and 800 alongside the renewed four-cylinder family F4 and Brutale.

The Rivale 800 exudes an emotive design from every angle.

Brand new model from MV Agusta! Sorry about the lack of specifications, I even checked today and there isn't any further ones up yet. And as far as I know, the Rivale 800 isn't available in Canada either. But it's new. :D

I understand that this bike was voted the best looking bike at some big event in Europe not that long ago, but it is just ugly. Most likely the performance is fantastic, with cutting edge technology, but this bike is chew my arm off coyote ugly. An overabundance of useless angular forms. Perhaps if the Rivale was going past on some track at maximum throttle all of the plastic would smear together and a momentary glance would not then bring on an instant tension headache. I would much rather the Brutale 800 and the F4 is gorgeous.

Uncool - the only MV Agusta that I would give an uncool.

I will go exactly the opposite direction and say that it is awesome. Friggin awesome. Actually makes the Brutale look dated and the Brutale is one of my favorite motorcycles. Apparently the 800 is sorted too, in a way that the 675 was not. I'd love to give one a go.

Had to think about this one....do I like its looks or do I find it repellent? I am not over fond of the Transformereque type of styling for the most part, but in the end, I have to say this is one sexy looking bit of kit, I especially like the exhaust set. Plus its a triple, and in a world dominated by IL4's and V-twins, a triple is a good thing. So, I will give it awesome for its sexy fairly naked looks, and three cylinder engine. I wouldn't mind taking one out for a spin, but I doubt I would own one.
Always ask why.

I prefer the Brutale, but this thing is sex on wheels nonetheless. Still makes me feel some awe, so it must be awesome.

Who voted fail?

Well, I did. Surprise. :)

I just see the new 2013 MV Agusta Rivale 800 as a copied Ducati or even BMW, it's too similar to what is already being put out by those two companies. I'm mostly talking about the design (not the engine) here, and I'm just not a fan of that particular "duckbill" design, I think it's pretty awful really, but that isn't a slight to those who actually like that look, it just rubs me the wrong way is all, and I did own a V-Strom...

That said, MV Agusta is a big design leader, it could do so much more than copy other bikes, after all I, myself, hold MV Agusta above BMW and Ducati, they are the Lamborghini of the motorcycle world, it would be like Lamborghini copying a BMW.

I guess if I saw a Rivale 800 rolling up I couldn't but think... wow, you had SOOOO many other choices from MV Agusta, and you picked that?

Ah well, hopefully my fail vote won't taint anyone's opinion.

I won't hold it against ya..fer long nah just kiddin hey there is a butt for every seat!!!!! I look at the MV and I see a low slung nice looking exhaust, a trellace frame to show off that beauty of a motor (as much as an I4 can be) huge binders on the front fairly decent tubes in the front it appears,a sleek headlight setup that doesn't look like it compromises usage, a short wheel base BORN TO HANDLE!!! and a rear that appears functionally cleaned up for lack of better words a nice butt. The Duc is cool but a Desmo costs lots to keep up over an I4.

I voted fail as it is a shameless ripoff of the Hyper. Not as blatant of a ripoff as the Aprilia Dorsodoro or whatever that thing is called. It's not a bad looking bike at all, certainly far better looking than the mfugly dorsodorodoodoo. That said, I would expect a lot more originality from MV Agusta than this.

I have a feeling I'd like its looks better in person than in a picture. In pictures I'm not crazy about it, except for that triple exhaust. But it gets a Cool vote from me just on the basis of its "triple"-ness.

Truth ... there is a butt for every seat.

I always feel a bit guilty about making critical comments about a motorcycle as there will always be someone who loves even the ugliest bike. A bit of Texas wisdom is never to say anything nasty about a man's dog, a man's girl or a man's truck, but then the purpose of these threads is to express what you think about each entry and the feedback might be of some utility to the manufacturers.

Did I mention that the Rivale is butt ugly?

Sexy? Only if a steroid abusing female body builder is sexy, but some man will find her so.

When I first started thinking about riding again the only bikes that appealed to me where naked standards. I rode a CB400T a long time ago and I just felt a connection to the UJM form, but the more I have looked at different motorcycles the more I like almost all of them from sports bikes to duel sports and even some of the cruisers. There truly is a butt for every seat.

Great discussion this week on MV Agusta's latest offering, the Rivale 800, which I had to look up the Italian work "Rivale" and it means in English: "Pizza dough"... lol. No, actually it doesn't, did I fool you? It's mean Rival, like "he is my rival".

I hated to have voted fail on it, and I was definitely the odd man out there as when I did, there were 0 fail votes. Usually I wait till the end of the week to vote so I don't influence votes, with 8 fail votes in, maybe I voted too early? No matter, the Rivale 800 did very well, with Awesome being the most voted by far and the bike ending up at a very respectable 61.5% TMW Coolness Factor.

Next bike is now up for voting on, have fun!!
