The MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 will ride into the Indian market on 29 August 2019. The middleweight tourer motorcycle shares its engine with the MV Agusta Brutale 800 and the F3 800.
The Turismo Veloce 800, similar to the rest of the MV Agusta lineup, will carry a premium price tag compared to its rivals. A report from earlier this year claimed that the sports tourer will cost INR 20.18* lakh. Internationally, the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce is sold in four options – Standard, Lusso, Lusso SCS and RC SCS. The details about the India-bound variants are unavailable.
The MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 uses a 798 cc inline three-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with a counter-rotating crankshaft that pumps out 110 hp of maximum power at 10,150 rpm and 81 Nm of peak torque at 7,100 rpm. Almost 90% of the total torque is available from just 3,800 rpm. The motor is linked to a 6-speed transmission, and it features a hydraulic-activated slipper clutch and quickshifter (up- and down-shifts). The maximum speed is rated at 230 km/h.
Braking department comprises dual 320 mm floating front discs and a single 220 mm rear disc to perform the anchoring tasks. Suspension duties are handled by Marzocchi sourced inverted front forks and a Sachs rear monoshock. The Lusso variant benefits from features like Sachs upside-down forks, cruise control and luggage panniers.
The electronic package on the middleweight sports tourer includes ride-by-wire throttle, four riding modes, 8-level traction control, Bosch 9 PLUS ABS and Rear Wheel Lift-up Mitigation.
In terms of styling, the Turismo Veloce 800 features a touring friendly semi-fairing design along with a tall windscreen. Other key features include knuckle guards with integrated front blinkers, triple exhaust outlets and single-sided swingarm.
The MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 will rival the Ducati Multistrada 950 and the Triumph Tiger 800, which are priced from INR 12.84 lakh* and INR 11.99 lakh* respectively.
