Long Name, Longer Miles

No OEM motorcycle lineup is complete without a motorcycle geared towards long-distance touring. MV Agusta has the Turismo Veloce range of bikes to fill this void, and the 2021 edition comes particularly jam-packed with updates and features.

At first glance, the 2021 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce comes off as a beautiful motorcycle. When put next to something like the Kawasaki Versys, there’s no question that this is an Italian luxury motorcycle built for going the distance. The single-sided swingarm, triple-stacked exhaust, exposed frame and aggressive body paneling are what really set this bike apart from the touring pack when it comes to visual appearance.

Diving further into the motorcycle (further than the sheer aesthetics… Pffft, shallow) is where we really find what makes this bike special. The motorcycle is powered by a revised version of MV Agusta’s 798cc inline-three engine. This block produces an apt 109 horsepower but gains a heavy torque boost (12%) as a result of new intake trumpets.

An important asset to find in a bike when shopping for a touring motorcycle is fuel efficiency; you never know when the next gas station will come when ducking between small towns. This bike is Euro 5 compliant, and the gears have been revised to put less stress on the engine in high-rev scenarios.

Thanks to Euro 5, the exhaust also sees an update in addition to the updated clutch, gearbox, seat, forks, display, and electronics. A brand new IMU and ECU have been integrated into this bike resulting in smoother throttle response and more adaptive TC and ABS.

The MV Agusta Turismo Veloce comes in a large handful of versions: Rosso, Lusso, Lusso SCS, and RC SCS; each bringing more premium features to the motorcycle as you go up the ladder. Pricing starts at €21,600 ($25,874 USD).
