The MV Agusta Turismo Veloce
The three cylinder 798 c.c. engine delivers 125 HP/ 11.600 R.P.M. AND 8.6 ╩GM (62.2 FT LBS) / 8.600 R.P.M. The wheelbase is 1420 mm (55.9 in), the seat height is 870mm (34,25 in), although the dry weight is 207 kg (456.4 lbs) at the Lusso version and 194 kg (427.7 lbs) at the base model.
A 43 mm semi active telescopic fork is equipped at the front providing a suspension travel of 160 mm (6.3 in). A single sided aluminum swing arm and a semi-active shock absorber providing a suspension travel of 160 mm (6.3 in) is featured at the rear.
Twin 320 mm rotors are featured at the front together with radial four piston Brembo calipers. The dimensions of the wheels are 120/70-17 at the front and 190/55-17 at the rear.
The Lusso version is equipped with semi-active Sachs suspensions, centre stand and 60 L panniers, each one adequate for a full face helmet. The base model is equipped with fully adjustable Marzocchi fork and a Sachs shock.
The name of the bike suggests a fast touring motorcycle. Probably the bike will feature the three cylinder engine layout powering the Brutale, F3 and Rivale 800. In the case of this sport-touring MV Agusta the power should be then in the region of 130 bhp. More news on Novemer 4th, or sooner!
