MV Agusta has unveiled the 2015 model year of its 2015 Turismo Veloce 800 and the 2015 Turismo Veloce 800 Lusso. Both models were made their public debut at last year’s EICMA, and were the first bike equipped with the company’s MVICS 2.0 electronic package.
The 2015 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 is powered by the same 798cc three-cylinder engine found in the Rivale and Brutale 800s, but it has been tweaked with new pistons and a changed compression ratio to optimize performance “in the most commonly used rpm range” and reduce fuel consumption by 20 percent. It is mated to a six-speed gearbox with MV Electronically Assisted Shift 2.0, and provides 110 hp at 10,000 rpm and 59 lb-ft of torque at 8500 rpm.
Furthermore, the Turismo Veloce 800 is fitted with a Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System 2.0 and comes with four different engine maps (Touring, Rain, Sport and Custom). An eight-level traction control system is available as a standard feature.
Other features include a cast aluminum frame, an aluminum single-sided swingarm, Brembo brakes, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, a 33.46-inch seat height, a 5.28-gallon fuel tank, a Bosch 9 Plus ABS system, adjustable windscreen, a color TFT 5” screen with Bluetooth, as well as a 43mm Marzocchi upside-down front fork and Sachs rear shock, both with rebound and compression damping and spring preload adjustability.
The 2015 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 Lusso variant adds MV Agusta Chassis Stability Control system, a Sachs front fork rather than the Marzocchi, heated grips, and Bluetooth integrated GPS.
The 2015 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 will retail for €15,990 and will be available in Red/Silver and Silver/Avio Grey colors, while the 2015 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 Lusso will cost €18,990 and will come in Pear White/Avio Grey and Red/Silver colors.
Both are expected to hit European showrooms in early 2015.
