Italian motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta appears to be jumping on the scrambler bandwagon with this teaser video of their upcoming RVS.
RVS stands for Reparto veicoli speciali which is Italian for special vehicles department, so it may not be a full production run, just a limited edition.
However, who could blame them for jumping on such a successful bandwagon.
The modern interpretation of the old hare scrambles motorcycles began with the Triumph Scrambler in 2006.
However, it wasn’t until Ducati released its Scrambler in 2015 that it became a popular motorcycle type.
The Ducati Scrambler quickly became the brand’s top seller. Now brands such as BMW, Yamaha and SWM have followed the trend.
So why not MV Agusta?
It certainly needs something to boost its stocks after the company’s financial woes of the past year or so and its decision to wind back on new models.
Which is further evidence that the RVS might just be a one-off limited-edition scrambler likely based on their 800 Dragster.
The 37-second video only shows a vague silhouette and the RVS logo etched into a lump of aluminium.
It features slightly knobby tyres and wire wheels with high pipes. And that’s just about all you need these days to call your bike a scrambler!
