Curiously, Sardarov additionally talked about {that a} high-performance combustion engine is being developed as effectively. 

“A few of the automotive producers have stopped producing high-performance engines they usually’re transferring into electrical. We’re nonetheless engaged on yet one more high-performance platform that may come earlier than electrical.”

“On the similar time, we’re launching an initiative to begin constructing a imaginative and prescient for what an MV Agusta electrical bike has to seem like.”

“We at MV categorically don’t consider that the present technological accessibility will enable MV Agusta to provide something within the efficiency market.”

“We’ll present one thing yearly and a number of the tasks we’ve began will take a very long time, however by 2024-2025 you positively will see very particular machines rolling out of MV Agusta.”

Whereas it’s nonetheless a couple of years away, it seems like MV Agusta’s last combustion engine bike can be one thing actually particular.
