MV Agusta To Launch Its Tourer, The Turismo Veloce 800, In India Soon
Bears the same 798cc inline three cylinder engine found on the Brutale 800.
- On this bike, the engine puts out 111.5PS and 83Nm.
- This is 1.5PS more than the Brutale 800 but 3Nm less.
- Only the standard variant will be arriving via the CBU route.
This bike has been a long time coming as MV Agusta’s Indian arm, Motoroyale, will finally be bringing the Turismo Veloce 800 to our shores on 29 August. The launch will take place at Motoroyale’s new outlet in Mumbai. Expect it to come bearing a price tag of Rs 18 lakh (ex-showroom India).
This Italian exotic is the literal definition of a sportbike-on-stilts as it houses the same heart that you would find on the F3 800 and the Brutale 800. In fact, MV Agusta does not call the Turismo Veloce as an adventure tourer. In the company’s eyes, it is a sports-tourer and we kind of agree to it.
As previously mentioned, this is the same 798cc inline three cylinder engine found on the Brutale 800. However, this receives a different tune. As a result, this engine churns out 111.5PS and 80Nm which is 1.5PS more than the Brutale 800’s power unit but the torque rating is 3Nm lower. A six-speed gearbox is aided with bi-directional quickshifter for clutchless shifting.
A long-travel Marzocchi USD fork and Sachs monoshock suspend the bike, both units are fully adjustable. Brembo monobloc calipers are used to bring the bike to a halt with 17-inch alloy rims at either ends.
