Varese, 4 November 2014 – 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.
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″TFT colour display and Bluetooth. Turismo Veloce 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.
