The 2013 MV Agusta Rivale 800 was voted as the most beautiful motorcycle at the 2012 EICMA Show. A poll of more than 15,000 visitors at the event in Milan, Italy, decided the final results, Motorcycle.com reports.
The Rivale earned more than 35 percent of the vote, well ahead of the second place Ducati Hypermotard SP, which garnered about 23 percent. The BMW R1200GS came in third with about 15 percent of the vote. No other bike had more than 6 percent.
Previous winners of the award include the Ducati 1199 Panigale, which won in 2011, and Agusta’s own F3 675, the 2010 winner.
“For us it is a further recognition and confirmation of how much energy and resources MV Agusta is dedicating to the constant development of new products,” said Giovanni Castiglioni, president and chief executive officer of MV Agusta. “After winning in 2010 with the unique jewel created by my father, the F3 675, it is an incredible satisfaction to win yet again with a completely new machine.”
The EICMA Show is a staple in the world of motorcycles, with manufacturers showing off some of their best new creations every November. From bikes to street bike accessories, EICMA boasts the latest products from across the industry.
