MV Agusta continues to produce compelling special editions of its iconic Superveloce. The latest is the 2021 MV Agusta Superveloce Alpine. This motorcycle is a collaboration with Alpine of France—a renowned builder of race cars and sports cars. The Alpine A110 inspires the Superveloce Alpine, and that means there will be a run limited to 110 examples.“Many Alpine customers are also big MV Agusta fans, and vice-versa,” explains MV Agusta Motor CEO Timur Sardarov. “The Superveloce Alpine will ideally bring the two worlds together, with incredible synergies in terms of design, personality, and style. We look forward to this collaboration with one of the most admired brands in the history of motorsport, and are confident that this new, superb limited edition will be met with enthusiasm by bikers and motorsport fans around the world.”
MV Agusta’s Monica Design Studio is behind the 2021 MV Agusta Superveloce Alpine. Working with Alpine designers, the collaboration represents both brands, with Blue Alpine and Ago Silver livery. The seat is black Alcantara with blue stitching, while the fairing’s raised Alpine A110-inspired A logos.Carbon fiber abounds, accounting for the lower fairings, air duct covers, rear fender, front fender supports, chain guard. Look closely at the carbon fiber front fender supports, and you’ll see a subtle tribute to the French and Italian flags.There’s a brushed aluminum decal on the steering head with a number somewhere between 001 and 110, as this is a numbered special edition. A limited-edition certificate of origin is included.As a 2021 model that is Euro 5 compliant, we did notice a subtle change in the power production claims for the 798cc inline-3. According to MV Agusta, the torque peak remains the same at 65 ft-lbs, and arrives 500 rpm sooner. Maximum power has been reduced by a single horse, with the peak coming at an unchanged 13,000 rpm. In real-world riding, that’s likely a minor improvement.Trackday enthusiasts will be attracted to the 2021 MV Agusta Superveloce Alpine, as it includes a Racing Kit. The kit consists of an Arrow Racing 3 exhaust system with a special ECU, a pillion seat cover, a CNC fuel cap with a leather strap and Alpine logo, and a Superveloce Alpine cover for the motorcycle.“MV Agusta is a symbol of Italian craftsmanship and excellence that makes motorcycles like no other,” Managing Director of Alpine Patrick Marinoff noted. “Our two brands are driven by the same passion for creating beautifully engineered products and unique emotions for our customers. The Superveloce Alpine is a fine piece of design and technology that makes no compromise on performance and riding pleasure.”We don’t have a delivery date, but we do have the price in Italy for the 2021 MV Agusta Superveloce Alpine: €36,300.2021 MV Agusta Superveloce Alpine SpecsENGINE
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by the awesome Yamaha YZF-R7. The R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too! Check out the YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com.
In this week’s first segment, Senior Editor Nic de Sena goes to the Yamaha MT-10 launch. I have to say, the R1-derived MT-10 is one of my all time favorite street bikes. It’s the perfect balance of instant, usable power, crammed into an agile yet stable chassis. All that is built into an incredibly easy-to-ride package. And I’m not even going to mention it’s ability to wheelie… The latest MT-10 has had some upgrades, so I’m very curious to hear what Nic thinks.
For our second segment this week I chat with Paul Jayson—aka The Motorcycle Broker. Paul has been restoring, collecting, and selling investment grade motorcycles and cars for several decades, and his knowledge and passion for the art of motorcycling seems pretty much unrivaled.
Paul’s quest for total authenticity and insistence on a breathtaking level of detail is incredible. Actually, one of his restorations—a classic MV Agusta—won recently at Salon Privé.
Paul’s take on how the motorcycle market developed globally, and where it’s going, I found fascinating. You can visit Paul’s website at TheMotorcycleBroker.co.uk.
From all of here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
