    Motul oils and lubricants are found in many motorcycles around the world and are most definitely used inside this concept bike that is being shown at the 2016 Verona Motor Bike Expo in Italy. Dubbed the Onirika 2853, it’s an MV Agusta Brutale 800 made virtually unrecogniseable by Luca Pozzato of Officine GPDesign.

    The use of the Brutale 800 is an interesting choice – it is one of the most beautiful naked motorcycles in existence, whereas this concept probably wouldn’t be described as pretty by most people. The seat is definitely brutal – it’s dimpled with rivets. The fuel filler cap is shaped like a gear and along the rear tail section and the tank are graphics of mechanical parts. The brake lines are also thicker than normal, supposedly to represent industrial hosing.

    And while it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, it is for a good cause at least (after the primary cause of publicity for Motul, of course) as the bike will be auctioned off later in the year with all proceeds going to Motul Corazón, a non-profit foundation that helps underprivileged children.
