MV Agusta Superveloce 800 to launch in 2020

Written by Nizam Shaikh

MV Agusta recently announced that it will launch the Superveloce superbike which was displayed at the 2018 EICMA in its concept form. The motorcycle is expected to launch in the year 2020. The 2020 MV Agusta Superveloce 800 will sport neo-retro design elements and the concept motorcycle used a mix of modern materials like carbon fibre on the fairing in old school design.

The windscreen visor and headlights have a retro yellow tint, but this won’t be retained on the production model due to safety norms. The Superveloce 800 concept unveiled at the 2018 EICMA exhibited a fully digital instrument console, LED headlamps and taillamps and are expected to come in the production model.

The bike is also expected to come in the Red and White colour combination as shown on the concept along with features like leather strapped fuel filler lid, rear seat cowl, round rear tail lamps, crimson red seats, etc. The Superveloce 800 is expected to feature modern day electronics and features like ABS, Traction Control and Riding Modes in its production form.

The ‘800’ in the Superveloce 800 leads us to believe that the engine will most likely be shared with the MV Agusta F3 800 which is powered by a 799cc, 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which produces 148 HP of power and 88 Nm of torque coupled to a 6-speed gearbox. The chassis on the Superveloce 800 concept is a steel trellis frame and it rides on 43mm upside-down Marzocchi forks on the front and a single adjustable Sach unit on the single-sided swingarm at the rear.

The bike is expected to be produced in a limited number and only a few bikes are likely to come to India, if at all Motoroyale plans of bringing them to our shore.
