MV Agusta reveals Turismo Veloce 800, Stradale 800

News Release

MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 & Turismo Veloce 800 Lusso

A new dimension. A world described by turns and straight stretches, scenery and hairpin bends, asphalt. Unique sensations. And just one name: Turismo Veloce. MV Agusta forsakes common ground and outlines a new way of understanding touring. Available in dealerships from the beginning of 2015.

MV Turismo Veloce

Lightweight. Feeling. Riding pleasure. Performance. The lightweight 800 three cylinder engine at the centre of the precious frame with steel trellis structure and aluminium plates. Electronics at the service of the rider. And so MV Agusta reinvents the Tourer bike, fast, lightweight and dynamic.

The new 3 cylinder engine with 110 HP maximum power and torque increased by 15% (in the most commonly used rpm range) with respect to the engine that equips the Rivale and Brutale. The weight/power ratio and torque value make this bike unique and give it unforgettable riding pleasure. Specific pistons, compression ratio that optimises performance and consumption, top shelf electronics management. In fact, with the new MVICS 2.0 (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System), the injection time and required quantity of fuel at any time or engine speed are calculated with absolute precision. MVICS 2.0 uses the new TC and the EAS 2.0 with blipper system, all managed through the new 5” colour TFT instrument cluster which means that the Turismo Veloce is both docile when riding with the throttle barely open and vivacious with a twist of the wrist. Acceleration and pick up allow you to take on the competition, thanks in part to the ratios of the refined removable gearbox which have been optimised for this model. The already low fuel consumption of the three cylinder MV Agusta engines has been further lowered compared to current models, up to 20% less. And the search for optimum combustion in the chamber has made Euro4 approval possible.

The availability of 4 engine maps (Touring and Rain with 90 HP maximum power, Sport with 110 and Custom which can be personalised) translates into maximum freedom of choice to match your riding style in any conditions. Some of the parameters that can be personalised are the engine torque curve along the power distribution arc (two levels), the rev limiter mode (more or less abrupt), throttle sensitivity (three levels), engine brake (two levels) and engine response (two levels).

The substantial traction control evolution, adjustable to eight different levels or able to be disabled, gives the rider a system that guarantees safety first and foremost, but without penalising the feeling and sensations which are an essential part of the experience that comes with sitting in the saddle of every MV Agusta. The new operating logic of the quickshift gearbox falls under this same category: the EAS 2.0 lets the rider up and downshift without using the clutch. The result? Extremely reduced shifting times, comfort and a lot more focus dedicated on riding.

The revolutionary concept at the base of this MV Agusta style Tourer is available in two versions: Turismo Veloce, for those who want light weight and sportiness above all without giving up any of the features, such as the full LED lights and the instrument cluster with large 5” TF T colour display and Bluetooth. T urismo V eloce Lusso: with electronically controlled suspension which acquires data on the dynamic performance of the inertial platform, Turismo Veloce is even more comfortable and efficient, turn after turn. The system acts on the hydraulic compression and rebound, even with the bike in motion. The instrument cluster with large 5” TFT colour display also provides GPS information acquisition. And the dedicated App provides full rider and passenger integration. The original arrangement of the panniers (30 litres each with identical dimensions) inserted perfectly into the tail fairing with a uniquely styled and practical solution, requires a bearing structure in cast aluminium which supports the rider saddle, the passenger saddle and the panniers to reduce the transversal bulk of the bike, as well as guaranteeing the cargo carrying capacity needed to press on even farther. To the horizon.

MV Agusta Stradale 800

Breathtaking braking, awesome acceleration. City streets. Country roads. Motorways. Different situations that used to require different bikes - but not any more. The Stradale 800 rewrites the rules. Because it's the right bike every time, whatever the road.

MV Stradale 800

The new Stradale 800 combines the MV Agusta experience on various types of models to offer an original approach to riding. The ALS steel trellis frame is completed, in the single-sided swingarm pivot area, with lightweight aluminium alloy plates. To ensure the Stradale 800 keeps going no matter what the obstacle, great attention has gone into the design of the suspension: the upside-down Marzocchi fork - adjustable in compression, rebound and spring pre-load - guarantees 150 mm of travel; the single-sided swingarm, connected to the fully adjustable monoshock, provides 150 mm of travel. The chassis has been developed specifically for the Stradale 800.. The 1,460 mm wheelbase has been extended by 30 mm; consequently, the single-sided swingarm is also longer, improving traction. The riding position is completely new: the 870 mm high seat (-10 mm) makes the bike easier to handle and improves the rider's stance on the vehicle to provide enhanced control and comfort. In fact, the front end has been equipped with a protective Plexiglas screen (featuring on-the-go one- handed adjustment) that merges perfectly with the unique Stradale 800 style. The fuel tank is now larger: its 16 litres (+ 4 litres of reserve), together with outstanding thermodynamic engine performance, ensure you'll put in plenty of miles between refuelling stops. The hydraulic clutch makes gear shifts fluid and even. For completely carefree riding. Always.

The standard equipment includes two side panniers: perfectly in keeping with the Stradale 800 style, they also feature built-in turn indicators. This solution, which required specific type approval, gives an immediate advantage: even from behind, the entire width of the bike is clearly visible, exactly as it is from the front and side, where turn indicators on the hand guards serve the same purpose.

The 798 cc three cylinder in-line engine was specially developed for this model: the maximum power and torque ratings, 115 hp at 11,000 rpm and 78.5 Nm at 9,000 rpm respectively, only partially describe a power unit that combines elasticity with outstanding acceleration. Exclusive solutions abound, such as the counter-rotating crankshaft, which reduces inertia during directional changes and thus makes for a more agile, gratifying ride, the bike also has an integrated cooling and oil circuit to keep it compact, lightweight and appealing.

Electronic MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) control is comprehensive: from the Ride By Wire accelerator to the Mikuni throttle bodies, from knock control to the availability of 4 engine maps. These latter features offer specific logic and dedicated power-torque curves: the Sport map provides 115 hp, maximising performance and generating the classic buzz typical of any true MV Agusta. The Normal map offers 90 hp of power and a smoother throttle response, ideal for short range touring and commuting. Rain means safety first and foremost: The Stradale 800 puts the torque and power down on the tarmac as progressively as possible. The as-standard ABS has a Bosch 9 Plus unit equipped with RLM (Rear wheel Lift-up Mitigation): this technology prevents the rear wheel from lifting off the ground, effectively preventing one of the most dangerous riding situations. Also as standard is the EAS 2.0, the most complete quickshifter on the market: this provides the rider with electronic assistance and therefore eliminates the need to operate the clutch when up and down- shifting. Comfort and sports performance, back together again.
