MV Agusta will reveal an all-new model at the upcoming EICMA motor show. To spice things up before the launch, the Italian manufacturer has released a short video teaser which betrays the bike’s design language and a few other important details.

Most probably the new sport tourer will be powered by same unit as the F 800 namely a 798cc, three-cylinder unit that cranks out a maximum output of 148 bhp and 65 lb.-ft. of torque.

We can also expect to a comprehensive list of modern features such as MV Agusta’s Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System (MVICS) electronics with ride-by-wire throttle control, multiple mappings and an eight-level traction control system.

We’ll also get the modern Sachs adaptive suspension system, ABS, a stacked triple exhaust, LED lights and a high tech display which helps you keep in check the bike’s electronics as well as other vital stats.

MV Agusta has prepared us a pretty big surprise as it secretly developed an all new motorcycle. The new model is called the Turismo Veloce 800 and will be revealed on November 4th in Milan, Italy at the EICMA show.

Unfortunately, we don’t have many details about the new MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 but we can expect it to be equipped with the company’s 800cc three cylinder engine, which currently powers the F3, B3 and Rivale models. Given the fact that we are obviously talking about a new touring motorcycle judging after its name, the new Turismo Velove 800 should also put more accent on comfort and practicality than its sporty siblings.

We can also expect it to come with a comprehensive list of touring accessories, such as spacious sidecases, saddle bags and a potent audio system. A generous fuel tank will certainly be thrown into the mix as well as high end brakes and suspensions.

Stay tuned for more details.

MV Agusta has taken the wraps off its fresh F3 800 – a sport motorcycle packed with the latest goodies in the business. The bike will be available at dealers in July with a price tag of 13.990€.

Like it was expected, the new MV Agusta F3 800 was carefully designed to reward its rider with first class handling abilities and a perfect stability at high speeds.

It weighs only 175 kg and is powered by a strong 798cc engine with a backward-rotating crank and the same bore as the F3 675. However the stroke is increased from 45.9 mm to 54.3mm. In terms of power the engine puts out a maximum output of 148 hp at 13.000 rpm and 65 ft.lb. of torque at 13.500 rpm. The rev limiter is set at 13,500.

Among the tasty features offered by the MV Agusta F3 800 you’ll find ride-by-wire, traction control, an electronic air-bleed system and variable power maps.

The stopping power is assured by Brembo monobloc calipers while the suspension is kept in check by fully-adjustable Marzocchi forks paired with a Sachs rear shock.

The fellows at MCN got their hands on the latest spy shots of the 2010 MV Agusta Brutale. The pictures were taken earlier this week at the Almeria circuit in Spain and they reveal a new chassis and styling. More precisely, the steel trellis frame has been redesigned, while the new headlight is probably the most obvious change of this new model year. Apparently, the tank and seat carry on unchanged.

In what the engine is concerned, this is currently known to have suffered no significant upgrade and, given the fact that two bikes have been caught during tests, we reckon the 989cc and 1078cc versions will be kept as well.

There’s no official word from Agusta on this model yet.

Remember the news conform which Yacouba Galle’s MV Agusta 910 Bestiale will go into production? Well, it is half true. The good part is that the kit available for turning your Brutale into a Bestiale has just been released and it is available at www.vesuvioracing.com, but the bike won’t see the production line pretty soon.

They’ve also created a nice promo in which they point out the ex journalist’s talent so here it is.

If you did so, the answer to your question could come by reading an article published in the online edition of the New-York Times. Entitled “A Motorcycle For Moguls”, the article refers to those bikes that you an me can’t have, but which often make a good subject of talk for us.

Ever wondered why limited edition motorcycles exist?

Outrageously-priced two-wheelers such as the MV Agusta F4CC ($120,000) or the Ducati Desmosedici RR ($72,500) make you wonder about the technology and materials implemented, but as you hear that you can get the same rush on bikes that are eight time cheaper, you really don’t know what to think. Has the world turned upside down?

The answer is strongly related to each manufacturer’s marketing strategy, which in this cases tends to be the same: produce 100 limited edition models and sell them to those who want to feel special and satisfied of not being rich for nothing. Then the limited edition model’s success will reflect on the simple models of that same manufacturer (something that tells me they’re pretty much the same) and sales numbers increase, leaving everybody satisfied, even those who can’t afford the one with the long figure as MSRP.

Free advertising is also a thing of great importance as limited edition motorcycles not only fill up pockets with money paid on them, but with those saved from paid advertising. So next time you read about a limited edition model, think about these aspects and notice how you’ll start appreciating normal bikes more. But until then, read the New-York Times article.

Wonderful times to own a Brutale 1078RR, especially if you live in Italy. It is all due to the fact that the monthly Motorcycling magazine assigned this MV Agusta model as THE bike to buy if you are attracted by the naked segment. It all happened in the wonderful and suggestive frame of Cortile of Rocchetta at Castello Sforzesco situated in Milan. And so the wonderful creation manages to win the first place for the eight of the many to follow occasions, beating the Ducati 696 and BMW R (...)
The history repeat itself after 33 years: the MV Agusta gets back to the Italian podium. The author of the wonderful performance is Luca Scassa, protagonist since the very beginning of this racing season, who showed his incredible skills and the great value of his MV. On Sunday, the 23 years old rider got immediately the leadership of the race at the third lap creating a huge distance from his MV and Corti. Only at the final lap Corti got closer to Scassa who did’’t want to run any risk an (...)
