After the great success obtained with the Dragster RR LH, which sold out in a few hours from its launch, MV Agusta and Lewis Hamilton have partnered together on yet another exciting project. The collaboration sees Hamilton design a brand new model.
Giovanni Castiglioni – MV Agusta Motor President states: “I met Lewis a few years ago when he called up our Customer Care asking in a very humble way to buy a special bike. After having developed some 1/1 bikes for Lewis we turned our common passion into a partnership with the creation of the successful Dragster RR LH produced in 244 units. I’m very excited and proud to continue this cooperation that will see new MV Agustas co-designed with Lewis entering the market in the next month.”
Lewis Hamilton: “I am very excited to continue my partnership with MV Agusta. I love working with Giovanni and the guys at MV Agusta, their passion for engineering and attention to detail produces quite stunning, original looking bikes. My projects with MV Agusta are a great way to combine my love of riding bikes with my interest in creative design process so I am very much involved with the CRC (Castiglioni Research Department) design team throughout.”
