The Ballistic Trident project, commissioned by MV Agusta Taiwan to Winston Yeh, founder of Rough Crafts (roughcrafts.com), workshop with headquarters in Taipei, pays tribute to the first supersports of the last century MotoGP, characterised by streamlined ‘dustbin’ fairings, a stylistic feature that the Taiwanese designers wanted to reinterpret on this incredible ‘canvas’.

This build was commissioned by MV Agusta Taiwan, to showcase the world what a MV Agusta can be done with Rough Crafts flavor.

Capturing the rich racing history of vintage MV Agusta with the late model Brutale 800RR as the base. While looking at old pictures with MV racing vintage GP, designers saw these old GP bikes with big dustbin full fairing, and decided this is the biggest visual reference they wanted to put into the design.

The vintage dustbin fairing however had a down side (also the reason it got banned from the race), it gets buffered in side winds. This is the modern interpreation of the dustbin design, which turns with the forks. A set of vintage GP inspired wheels enhance the look even more.
