The 2021 MV Agusta Superveloce 800 Alpine: The Latest Special Edition

The 2021 MV Agusta Superveloce 800 Alpine is an extremely limited edition motorcycle that celebrates the return of a classic French racing company to the modern roadway. Much like how much of the Italian manufacturer’s history has been defined by racing, Alpine was once the darling of the rallying world, with its rear engine, rear wheel drive layout giving it excellent grip coming through corners and hairpins on the twisting World Rally Championship stages.

After the Alpine name went silent in the mid-1990’s, it was assumed that the company had simply closed up shop. The truth is that it was quietly bought up by Renault, and through years of development, a new car, the Alpine A110 has been released for 2021. This rebirth of the iconic name has also seen the birth of a new race car, the Alpine A470 LMP2 car, and the renaming of the Renault Formula 1 Team to Alpine F1.

MV Agusta could not stand by while this amazing return to production from a name almost as old as theirs happened, and partnered with Alpine to produce 110 Superveloce 800’s with the best of the best materials and parts used. The 798cc inline-three from the Serie Oro is carried over, with its modified, super lightweight titanium valves intact, producing 148 HP and 65 lb-ft of torque.

The frame uses the same steel alloy that is used in the F3 800 RC supersport bike, while carbon fiber is used for the chain cover, air ducting, mudguards, and lower fairings. The swingarm is cast aluminum alloy. The Marzocchi front suspension and Sachs rear suspension from the F3 800 RC also make it over to this special edition.

Brembo brakes front and rear are controlled by a special control unit sourced in cooperation from Alpine’s racing partners and is a Continental MK100 RLM (Rear wheel Lift Mitigation) unit with special, MV Agusta only control parameters. This unit also controls mid-corner braking to prevent high-sides.

Pirelli, as the official tire supplier for both Formula 1 and MotoGP, puts Diablo Rosso Corsa II super-sticky rubber on both aluminum alloy wheels. As well, MV Agusta, with cooperation from Alpine, has upgraded their MV EAS (Electronically Assisted Shifting) quickshifter to version 3.0, and the Superveloce 800 Alpine will be the first bike in MV Agusta’s lineup to carry it.

To top it off, the Superveloce 800 Alpine is painted in Alpine’s exclusive Alpine Blue and Racing Silver color combination, with the paint delivered straight from Alpine themselves. The finishing touch is a carved aluminum Alpine A logo on each side.
