Italian Job

If there’s one place where emotional design gets mixed incredibly well with performance, it’s the land of Ferrari and pizza: Italia. Tire maker Pirelli teamed with MV Agusta to create a marvel of motorcycle engineering: The Brutale 800 Diablo Rosso – a superbike tributed to the success of the two companies.

Nicknamed Diablo Rosso (or Red Devil), the bike represents a special edition of the Brutale 800 roadster. Diablo Rosso III tires are worn perfectly by the model, while Pirelli tags are thrown here and there over the chassis, maintaining the original lines of the model.

It’s sad this beauty won’t hit the production line; nevertheless, it’s a piece to be admired of the years. Check out the pictures below for more shots of the superbike.
