MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800
Very rarely can we say anything with any certainty when referring to upcoming motorcycle models. However, this time, we can say with absolute confidence that MV Agusta will be revealing the Turismo Veloce 800 on November 5th, as we already received an announcement of its unveiling at EICMA.
This model isn’t entirely unexpected. A quick glance at MV’s lineup gives us the feeling that this would be a great niche to fill. If we were the designers at MV Agusta, we’d certainly want to find another use for the 798cc Triple utilized in the Brutale 800, F3 800 and Rivale 800. Actually, surmising that the new bike would be an adventure/sport-touring bike is no great leap since Turismo Veloce translates roughly to “fast touring.”
As the Turismo Veloce will be based on existing MV mechanicals, it’s a safe bet the new bike will feature ride-by-wire throttle control, multiple mappings, an eight-level traction control system, and anti-lock brakes. We’d also be surprised if the Veloce didn’t have a more relaxed riding position and power delivery that’s mid-range focused.
Sit by your computers on November 5th, when all will be revealed by our intrepid editor at the event.
