2014 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800

“Emotion Touring.” MV Agusta uses this tagline in a video that teases its  newest triple, the Turismo Veloce 800.

This video provides much insight into a bike that the Varese-based company will unveil Monday, Nov. 4, at EICMA (Milan Motorcycle Show).

MV Agusta has remained hush about the details, but this video exposes much of the Turismo Veloce 800. The new Turismo Veloce, or “touring fast” in English, is based on the MV Agusta Rivale 800, a hooligan naked that recently impressed our international correspondent.

The Tuismo Veloce is the fourth in a lineup that feature the 798cc triple, including the Brutale 800, the F3 800 and the Rivale 800.

From the video, which MV’s opens up on cracked concrete to set the tone of the bike, we see the Turismo Veloce 800 is loaded with touring additions, including larger, Ducati Multistrada-like fairings, a larger windscreen, rubber-coated footpads, passenger grab handles, and opulent sidebars.

Appearance aside, it’s the look at the dash that MV Agusta reveals the inner workings of the Turismo Veloce 800. We see the bike’s in Touring mode, and we know it has ABS, at least five settings of traction control, and electronic suspension. Once more view of the bike reveals also that the new Turismo Veloce 800 uses Sachs suspension components.

We also see a Bluetooth signal with a 3G phone network, something many of the latest cars offer.

Think of the Turismo Veloce 800 as a mid-weight Ducati Multistrada, or maybe a mid-weight KTM 1190. MV follows the direction of its fellow European companies; it started with sportbikes, moved to nakeds, and now a tourer. And although it may have the appearance of an Adventure Tourer, it’s likely going to be more of a comfortable, upright positioned sport tourer.

We will have all the details on Monday…
