It’s a happy day for me…
I’ve allway’s bein a great fan of the MV Agusta design.
And today, on the EICMA show in Milano, MV Agusta has lifted the covers off it’s latest model, the Turismo Veloce 800!
The new Turismo Veloce will use the same 798cc three-cylinder engine as the Brutale 800 and recently launched Rivale 800. The bike will come with MV’s new ride-by-wire system, which features multiple engine maps and eight-stage traction control. The management of engine maps has three preset modes: Tourismo map with an intension to travel on a less edgy, nervous bike with an output of 100 hp, the map Sports that takes full advantage of the 125HP engine, and a Rain mapping to travel safely in conditions of low grip.
MV Agusta reinterprets the concept of a tourer in the name of exclusivity, of lightness, ease of operation, with a displacement “abnormal” to 800 cc, in contrast to the competition.
Turismo Veloce rediscovers the essence of grand tourer in two versions. In addition to the “basic” Tursimo Veloce seen here above in grey there is also a “Tusrismo Veloce Luxury” available, (posted here below in red) A name that evokes the great wealth of accessories and technology solutions, including the innovative “MVCSC” (MV Agusta Chassis Stability Control), semi-active suspension and two 30L cases left and right.
Also of note is the EAS 2.0 (Elettronically Assited Shift) which allows the pilot to select a higher or lower gear without operating the clutch lever. The TurismoVeloce and Lusso will be available with ABS as standard.
Instrumentation is totally new and based on a bright color TFT display by 5 “, it allows you to access numerous parameters detected by the electronics on board. The Luxury version also offers an advanced system of collecting GPS data, to characterize the motion in the Turismo setting. The acquisition data includes information about the route, fuel consumption and the use of the engine. Via Bluetooth, finally, Turismo Veloce connects rider, passenger and vehicle, allowing the sharing of the driving experience through dedicated app.
This beauty will be available somewhere in the beginning of 2014…
