MV Agusta Teases Arrival Of Superveloce 800 At EICMA 2019

The cafe-racer will be shown alongside the updated Brutale 800 and the Dragster 800 RR

  • Following tradition, the Superveloce 800 is a production-ready version of the Superveloce Serie Oro concept shown in 2018.
  • The new bike will lose the gold bling found on the Serie Oro.
  • Will be powered by a Euro 5-compliant version of MV’s 798cc inline three-cylinder engine.

Teased as a concept at EICMA 2018, the Superveloce Serie Oro was MV Agusta’s take on the cafe racer format. While its gold finish divided opinion, the bike did look evocatively striking. MV had promised a production-ready bike for the 2020 model and from the teaser image that the company has put out, it seems the Italians have stayed true to their word. The Superveloce 800 will be showcased at EICMA 2019.

MV Agusta calls the Superveloce a neo classic racer as there are striking similarities to the GP bikes raced in the 1950s and ’60s. The colour combination of the red and silver is very MV Agusta. The Italian firm has a tradition of revealing limited-edition Oro versions of its motorcycles and then following them up with the regular series production bikes. Hence, the upcoming bike is likely to miss out on the gold finish on the aluminium alloy bits like the swingarm pivot plates and the swingarm itself.

MV has managed to spawn yet another motorcycle with the iconic 798cc inline triple motor. This very same engine is used in the Brutale and Dragster nakeds, the Turismo Veloce sports tourer and the F3 supersport. On the Superveloce Serie Oro, the engine pumps out 148PS and 88Nm. Expect the new Superveloce to make less power like the Brutale 800, so that in case Agusta decides to make a RR version in the future, the bike will be tuned up to the max. The engine will be updated to the Euro 5 emission norms.

Also arriving at EICMA from the Italian firm are the updated versions of the Brutale 800 and the Dragster 800 RR. Both motorcycles will be getting the same Euro 5-compliant 798cc motor like the Superveloce 800. These bikes are likely to feature a new headlight unit as well as improved electronic suite. Even the rear swingarm is expected to witness a revision with a link-type monoshock being employed.

It might just be a bit too early to see the small capacity Agustas that the company is making with Chinese firm Loncin. However, we expect to hear further details regarding the development of those motorcycles at the event.
