MV Agusta Rivale 800. Unique both in design, performance, and absolute riding satisfaction.


The Rivale 800 redefines the concept of two-wheel exclusivity: the exclusivity of unmatched design, engine technology and electronics that, together, make this motorcycle the real-deal thrill machine.

The revolutionary in-line 3-cylinder Rivale engine is the bike’s beating heart that, together with ergonomics specifically developed for comfort and full control under all riding conditions, make it an outstandingly versatile roadster.

125 hp and a million emotions to be enjoyed to the full, bend after bend. Rivale is the interpretation of a new concept in motorcycling. Sensational performance yet perfect for everyday use. Perfect in every detail and a companion with which to share adventures, Rivale embodies desire to become reality, technology which sets new limits. Rivale 800, a new world.

Unrivalled technology.

Delight in its sensual lines and let the roar of the three cylinder engine wash over you. Why Settle for something less? Jump on the saddle. Rivale 800 challenges the imagination by recreating the unique magic of travelling on two wheels and rekindling the sheer joy of riding. All in just 178 kg.

Powerful but easy to manage: The brake system on the Rivale 800, equipped with ABS and RLM (Rear wheel Lift-up Mitigation),
provides incredible deceleration thanks to the four-piston Brembo calipers acting on twin, race-bred front discs (320 mm diameter).
The rear 220 mm disc perfectly complements its counterparts at the front and features a two-piston caliper. Braking therefore becomes not just a question of safety but a step forward in the dynamics of riding.

Innovation only counts when it's needed: In this case, Rivale makes no compromises despite its sublime elegance. Rivale 800 features exclusive lighting units thanks to sophisticated design and offers the rider superb visibility to further enhance passive safety.
The use of LED technology is the key factor: these lights make brighter beautiful indicators, that clearly signify where the handlebars end. Also making the rear light cluster more efficient. All this with the unmistakeable design of MV Agusta.

The three-cylinder MV Agusta engine is the most compact and lightest in the category weighing in at just 52 kg; a record breaking figure that is further enhanced by the elegance of its form. The oil and water circuits and their pumps are housed in the engine block while the removable six-speed gearbox lets riders personalise the gear ratios. The easily operated EAS (Electronically Assisted Shift) electronic shift system makes gear changes lightning fast.
