Italian bike maker MV Augusta has launched a new limited edition Lewis Hamilton LH44 bike. The bike is so named since it has been designed in collaboration with Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton.
The LH44 is based on the Brutale 800 RR and it receives certain special treatments like body graphics, color schemes and some carbon-fiber and CNC body parts. Mechanically, the LH44 is identical to the standard Brutale 800 RR, which means it runs on the same 798cc, inline-triple engine that powers the standard Brutale 800 RR.
The engine is mated to a six-speed transmission with a bi-directional quickshifter. A total of only 144 units of this bike will eventually be produced and each customer buying one will be given a certificate.
