After announcing the updated Superveloce range for 2021, MV Agusta now proceeds to unveil the Turismo Veloce sport-touring range, including the Lusso, Lusso SCS, RC SCS, and Rosso.
Spurred primarily to meet Euro 5 emission standard, MV Agusta also updated the overall package of the Turismo Veloce.
The Turismo Veloce maintains the familiar 798cc inline-three with a counter-rotating crank. However, it gets a new intake for better low-end and mid-range power with MV claimed the powerplant now makes 110hp with a 12 per cent increase torque between 3,000-6,000rpm.
According to MV, the gearbox has been revised for lower revs to reduce vibration and optimized fuel consumption.
Not only that, but the Turismo Veloce also gets the same upgrade as the Superveloce with EAS 3.0 quickshifter, DLC-coated valve tappets, sintered valve guides, a redesigned exhaust, and new fuel injectors.
In a move to reduce friction, MV also upgraded the engine with a new crank bearing, new piston rod bearings and countershaft bearing, increasing engine durability and reliability.
To make a point of the new Turismo Veloce capability, MV will attempt the new motorcycle with a 1900km ride within 24 hours, crossing 11 countries, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, France, Lichtenstein, Austria, Switzerland and Italy.
Other significant updates include:
- e-Novia 6-axis IMU
- Cornering ABS and lean-sensitive control
- 5.5″ TFT display with MV Ride App integration
- Sachs semi-active suspension (Rosso gets analogue suspension with Marzocchi 43mm
- fork and Sachs mono-shock)
- side panniers and a top case as standard on SCS
- Smart Clutch System (SCS) *available on Lusso SCS and RC SCS
MV Agusta has been a little quiet for the last few years in Malaysia, there were rumours some time ago that the Italian brand will be revived in the local market but it remains to be seen. However, we do hope to check out these beautiful machines up close!
