Jeweller David Yurman crafts a cool motorcycle with MV Agusta

Carbon racing

A dazzling piece of power, the David Yurman Forged Carbon Moto by MV Agusta pairs the intricate art of jewellery and watch design with the precision craftsmanship of a master bike builder. To celebrate his new accessories collection crafted from carbon composite, designer David Yurman teamed up with motorcycle maker Walt Siegl to develop a two-wheel tour de force out of the same material.

The one-off example is a custom MV Agusta Brutale featuring forged carbon for the front fender, rear hugger, triple tree, and brackets, complemented by the use of Kevlar for the fairing and gas tank. The cutting-edge componentry contributes to a cumulative weight of only 138kg. Holding power as precious as appearance, the bike is inset with a liquid-cooled 800 cc, 3-cyclinder DOHC engine churning out 162 hp and enabling a top speed of nearly 290kph.
