The Schiranna naked benefits from less vibration – with noise reductions of 50% compared to the previous model, lower emissions, more power, and a less demanding set-up.

With 140hp at 13,100rpm and 86Nm of torque at 10,100rpm, the two injectors per cylinder layout with a refined cylinder head developed for noise suppression has helped MV tune in the noise they really want while staying within the regulations, namely those sounds generated by the combustion itself.

New components include a harmonic damper, a new mechanical cam-chain tensioner, new camshafts, new valve guides, all completely redesigned and utilizing new materials to minimize stresses and vibrations.

Noise reduction also extends to the side covers of the engine, which also act as engine protectors. An entirely new countershaft, starter motor, and primary gear drive are aimed at improving the reliability. The designs of the transmission gears are also redesigned to achieve better meshing and therefore smoother transitions.
