2014 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800

Folowing a video teaser of the 2014 Turismo Veloce 800 revealed last weekend, MV Agusta has finally unveiled its all-new adventure-styled sport-tourer at the 2013 EICMA show, Milan. The company also introduced the premium version of Turismo Veloce 800 called the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso 800.

Both sport-tourers are powered by the same liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 798cc inline three-cylinder engine found on the Rivale 800, F3 and Brutale 800. Each cylinder features two intake valves and two exhaust valves with double overhead camshafts. The engine is linked to a six-speed manual gearbox and is claimed to deliver 123 hp at 11,600 rpm, the same as the Brutale 800, but with 62 ft.-lb. at 8600 rpm, the same torque as the Rivale 800.

The Turismo Veloce 800 and Veloce Lusso 800 also comes with MV Agusta’s second generation MVICS 2.0 (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) with three included preset mapping options (with integrated traction control) – Touring, Sport and Rain –  and  a cumstom setting that allows the riders to customize it to meet their needs ; and along with Ride-by-Wire throttle, electronically-assisted shifting and anti-wheelie control. Traction control has eight levels. The MVICS version 2.0 also comes with new features including cruise control and version 2.0 of the EAS clutchless shifter that allows clutch-less up and downshifting.

The difference between Turismo Veloce 800 and Lusso version is a suspension. The standard model uses a manually-adjusted 43mm Marzocchi fork and Sachs monoshock while the Lusso 800 is equipped with full semi-active Sachs suspensions. Both versions are based on a new chassis with 160mm of suspension travel in both front and rear suspensions and 1417.3 wheelbase.

Braking system includes a radially-mounted four-piston Brembo calipers gripping double 320mm discs up front and a two-piston Brembo caliper with single 220mm disc at the rear. Both models come standard with the Bosch 9 Plus ABS system.

Other highlights include a Bluetooth-enabled five-inch TFT color display instrument panel and LED illuminated headlight.

The 2014 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 has a dry weight of 427.7 pounds with its 5.28-gallon fuel tank empty, while the 2014 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso 800 which comes standard with GPS navigation, a center stand and 60-liter cases weighs 456.3 pounds.
