MV Agusta Superveloce 800
MV Agusta are the masters of special editions, some are simply a bit of a bling and some new colour treatments, but every now and then they come up with something a bit more special. I think it is fair to say the MV Agusta Superveloce 800 might indeed be a bit special.
The legend of “Meccanica Verghera” and MV’s incredible record on the racetracks of the world in the 1960s and 1970s is celebrated in the MV Agusta Superveloce 800.
The machine you see here is dubbed a ‘concept’ but MV Agusta have stated that the bike will be produced in the second half of 2019.
Timeless classic lines pay homage to MV Agusta’s history but in the Superveloce 800 also sees plenty of modern styling cues successfully married in a tasteful nod to the heritage of iconic Italian brand.
A carbon-fibre fairing envelopes the engine and frame while the upper fairing pays tribute to design ethos of the nineteen-seventies.
The yellow colour of the plexiglass windscreen and the headlight unit in particular is certainly a nod to the psychadelic 70s. The latter is a technologically advanced twin-function full LED poly-ellipsoidal unit complete with LED daylight running light built into the cover of the new instrument cluster.
The sub-frame allows the owner to transform the bike from single-seat to pillion ready depending on their mood at the time.
A new circular LED tail light unit is distinctive.
The engine and braking system are directly derived from the MV Agusta F3 800, with some key adaptations that enhance the performance on the new Superveloce 800. The engine is entirely remapped to enhance the excellent power characteristics, without excluding an eventual increase in maximum power.
The entire exhaust system was redesigned based on the classic 3 in 1 in 3 layout, with the silencers placed asymmetrically: two are on the right side and one on the left, reminiscent of a prominent technical and aesthetic solution employed in MV Agusta’s racing history.
The riding position has been adapted directly from the F3 800 supersport bike, including the seat height, handlebars and footpegs, with the sole purpose of generating maximum riding efficiency.
Adjustable footpegs allow the rider to customize their position, guaranteeing a perfect rider-vehicle fit. The user-friendly handlebar and foot controls integrate perfectly with the clarity of the new TFT dashboard with dedicated graphics and a host of new features.
The fuel tank cap was specifically designed to integrate a characteristic leather strap that secures the fuel tank to the frame at the front and back.
The new MV Agusta Superveloce 800, in its final technical definition and stylistic form, will go into production in the second half of 2019.
