It seems like more motorcycle companies are collaborating with automakers.
Just a few weeks ago, Ducati revealed a special edition Diavel 1260 simply called 'Lamborghini'. It's the first collaboration between the two Italian companies, with the motorcycle itself taking inspiration from Lamborghini's wildest model yet – the Sian FKP 37. Only 630 examples of the special edition motorcycle will be built – which means it's going to be a collectible in the making.
However, another motorcycle company wants to outdo Ducati in their own game. MV Agusta, along with the help of French sports car maker Alpine, developed a limited edition called the Superveloce Alpine. Finished in a unique blue-white color scheme, the motorcycle heavily borrows inspiration from the Alpine A110 sports car.
According to MV Agusta and Alpine, the creation of this motorcycle was the result of their common interest and passion for breathtaking design and beautifully engineered products. Powering the Superveloce Alpine is a 1.3-liter, three-cylinder engine that makes 149 PS at 13,000 rpm – allowing it to reach a top speed of over 240 km/h.
Like the sports car, MV Agusta says their Superveloce is quick and agile. It will also come with a unique set of accessories. The graphic design, detailing, and accessories will all bear the Alpine mark. It has the raised 'A' logos on the fairings, the blue livery that matches with the A110, as well as black Alcantara seats with blue stitching. And to mark the collaboration between the companies, both the Italian and French flags are proudly displayed on either side of the motorcycle.
“Many Alpine customers are also big MV Agusta fans, and vice-versa. The Superveloce Alpine will ideally bring the two worlds together, with incredible synergies in terms of design, personality, and style. We look forward to this collaboration with one of the most admired brands in the history of motorsport, and are confident that this new, superb limited edition will be met with enthusiasm by bikers and motorsport fans around the world,” said Timur Sardarov, CEO of MV Agusta.
Looking to get one for yourself? Better hurry as only 110 examples of the Superveloce Alpine will be made in honor of the A110 sports car.
