MV Agusta CEO, Timur Sardarov has confirmed that an all-new range of 950cc motorcycles is on the way.
The Italian firm CEO revealed the upcoming plans after an exclusive interview with Britain’s publication, MCN.
According to the reports, the new 950 range will use the 931cc three-cylinder motor found in the near-production Lucky Explorer 9.5 adventure motorcycle.
“The 950 product that we’re building is state-of-the-art.
“The 950 as an engine will also migrate into other platforms too, in a different spec.
“This is an adventure-spec engine, and you will see a more sporty, naked – there will be different variations,” said Sardarov.
Sardarov also unveiled that the current 800cc range will also receive the 950 treatment.
“The Superveloce, F3 and Turismo Veloce, are all going to migrate to 950.
“We will have an 800 and 950,” he added.
MV claimed that the 950 makes 121hp @ 10,000rpm and 102Nm @ 7,000rpm and able to reach a max speed of 250km/h.
Interestingly, the migration is made possible because the new engine shares the same overall dimension as the existing 798cc triple, making it possible for the new motor to be fitted with the same trellis frame and mounting points.
During the interview, Sardarov was also able to confirm that the new 9.5 adventure motorcycle would only arrive after April 2023.
