2021 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 RC SCS

2021 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 RC SCS: The Pinnacle Of Mid-Displacement Touring

If you’re looking to get onto a mid-displacement MV Agusta motorcycle but the Dragster and Brutale model lineups don’t provide enough comfort for long distance riding, the Turismo Veloce should be right up your alley. It is a touring-oriented motorcycle built off of MV Agusta’s 800 platform.

The 2021 Turismo Veloce 800 RC SCS is the highest trim level found in the Turismo Veloce lineup. This Italian-made touring motorcycle has every feature that MV Agusta has to offer when it comes to extras and electronics.

For starters, the SCS denotes the inclusion of MV Agusta’s “Smart Clutch 2.0” system. This is a highly developed quick shifting system that MV Agusta has created to support the highest trim levels across all models. The inclusion of the Smart Clutch system allows for instant shifting without the use of the clutch lever to blow through gears without missing a beat.

The “RC” denotes that this trim package comes with all of MV Agusta’s parts designed for racing. This brings the model an updated chassis, forged aluminum wheels, and extra electronics to help you ride to the limits.

The engine is the same 798cc inline-three that you can find across all of MV Agusta’s mid-displacement bikes in their 2021 lineup.

The 2021 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 RC SCS starts at $22,990 EUR / $27,675 USD

2021 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 RC SCS Features


We did not settle for just the integrated MVICS electronics with full multi-map Ride by Wire, 8-level traction control and Up & Down EAS 2.0 electronic gearbox and inertial platform: the Lusso version also features our Skyhook algorithm that supplies all the key parameters for the semi-active suspension adjustments.


The heart of the Turismo Veloce is the pulsing 800 cc three-cylinder engine derived from the F3. It has a counter-rotating crankshaft, a unique feature in a touring bike that ensures unparalleled riding pleasure. We could not resist including a slipper clutch, worthy of a true racing thoroughbred.


When all you have to think about is riding, fun and pleasure are at their top, especially since safety is ensured by the two-channel Bosch 9 PLUS ABS system. With Rear Wheel Lift-ip Mitigation, the system controls the pressure applied on the front brake to avoid involuntary rear wheel lift-up.
