Varese, 6th November 2018 - History is a reflection of time, formed by memories. But, at the same time, offers a glimpse into the future. MV Agusta has formed its roots during epic racing battles: 37 world titles, legendary victories, challenges at the limits of the impossible. Emotions that have contributed to the creation of the legend of “Meccanica Verghera”.
A rendering of MV Agusta's Superveloce 800, which the company plans to start producing in late 2019.
The MV Agusta Superveloce 800 makes its debut, in concept form, at the EICMA, a precursor to the model that will be produced in the second half of 2019. Due to its very unique technical and aesthetic characteristics, the Superveloce 800 is destined to become one of the most eclectic and original models in the company's history.
The lines of the Superveloce 800 are a modern interpretation of the iconic lines formed by the MV Agusta heritage, the fusion of vintage and contemporary. The carbon fibre fairing envelopes the sleek and functional forms of the engine and frame like a second skin. The upper fairing, with its classic cut lines, makes tribute to design ethos of the nineteen-seventies, highlighted by the yellow colour of the plexiglass windscreen and the headlight unit. The latter is a technologically advanced twin-function full LED poly-ellipsoidal. The daylight running light, also LED, is built into the cover of the new instrument cluster. The elusive, lightweight and minimalistic tail fairing rests on a new sub-frame allowing the user to transform the bike from a single seat to a dual seat version. One of the defining details is the new circular LED tail light unit, elegant, and distinctive.
The chassis architecture, engine and braking system are directly derived from the ultra-fast 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. The 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.
