MV Agusta Enduro Veloce – The Final Form and New Name

The MV Agusta Enduro Veloce has been launched.  It is a new MV, instead it is “just” the third name for the Lucky Explorer 9.5.

It was initially called the Lucky Explorer 9.5, as an homage to the Lucky Strike-sponsored Cagiva Elefant which won the Dakar Rally in the ‘90s. Last year, the name was then changed to the LXP Orioli after Edi Orioli who rode that Elefant to that victory. And now, the MV Agusta Enduro Veloce. Production will begin in May 2024 and are expected to arrive in overseas dealers’ showrooms before the end of the year.

As such, the current bike is the same as the aforementioned LXP Orioli.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
