Turismo Veloce is the boldest bike ever made by MV Agusta. This time we didn't take our inspiration from our 75 world titles or our legendary riders to set new speed or power records. We did, however, accept a challenge that was perhaps even more difficult, at least for us who feel at home on the track and are often the first to see the chequered flag flying: to make an MV Agusta touring bike The fact that it is also "Veloce" (fast) is the natural consequence.
This meant redefining the design priorities: comfort, cargo capacity, smooth operation, low fuel consumption, longer service intervals and everything else a customer looks for in a bike designed for touring. Available in two versions, both share the absolute best technology available today: from the MVCSC (MV Agusta Chassis Stability Control) electronics package to the MVICS 2.0 (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) with inertial platform and the latest generation Bosch ABS. In typical MV Agusta style, we decided to adopt the electronic up&down EAS 2.0 gearbox available on all the engine maps, even on this touring bike. The overall innovation of the design also comes through in the details, such as the Full LED light clusters, the color instrumentation with TFT technology, built-in Bluetooth device to allow up to 9 different devices to be paired, the immobilizer, two USB sockets and two 12V power points. The Lusso (luxury) version takes the technical level of the Turismo 800 even higher with electronically controlled semi-active suspension as standard equipment, as well as heated hand grips, a centre stand and built-in GPS sensor.

The availability of 4 engine maps (Touring and Rain with 90 hp maximum power, Sport with 110 hp and Custom which can be personalised) means maximum freedom of choice to suit your riding style whatever the conditions. Some parameters can be personalised: these include the engine torque curve throughout the power range (two levels), rev limiter mode (more or less abrupt cut-in), throttle sensitivity (three levels), engine brake (two levels) and engine response (two levels).
Significant improvements to traction control, which can be adjusted to eight different levels or disabled, give the rider a system that ensures safety first and foremost but without compromising on the exhilaration that is an essential part of sitting astride an MV Agusta. The new operating logic of the quickshift gearbox falls under this same category: the EAS 2.0 lets the rider up and down-shift without using the clutch. The result? Much shorter gear shift times, greater comfort and a much sharper focus on the riding.
The revolutionary design concept behind this MV Agusta-style Tourer has spawned two versions: Turismo Veloce, for those eager to enjoy lightweight sportiness without having to compromise on 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 that uses dynamic performance data fed by the inertial platform, the Turismo Veloce weaves through the twists and turns with even greater comfort and efficiency. The system acts on hydraulic compression and rebound, even with the bike on the move. The instrument cluster with large 5” TFT colour display also provides GPS data. And with the dedicated apps, the bike, rider and passenger are one. The original layout of the panniers (30 litres each, identical dimensions), smoothly inserted into the tail fairing in a way that is both stylish and practical, features a load-bearing cast aluminium subframe that supports the rider seat, the passenger seat and the panniers; this reduces width-wise bike bulk and ensures a load capacity that take you all the way... To that enticing horizon.
