High-end Italian brand MV Agusta is throwing its hat into the ring with a new range of pedelecs. The range is aimed at “sophisticated” (ie well-off) urban riders and targets commuters rather than racers. The first pedelecs are named AMO and come in two versions – the RR and RC. They differ only in colour scheme, with the RR in black/yellow or black/red and the RR in red/white/black Reparto Corse livery. The shared drivetrain consists of a 250W Mahle motor with a 250Wh battery giving performance of up to 25km/h and range of up to 75km going through a belt drive (no mucky chain to stain those crisp chinos). Branded components such as Magura disc brakes and Pirelli rubber are used throughout, resulting in the whole machine weighing in at a competitive 15.5kg. Prices haven’t been released at the time of writing, but don’t expect them to be cheap.
