MV Agusta has once again shown that motorcycles really can be art with the unveiling of its 2021 Turismo Veloce lineup. Updates to the range include a new electronics package, improved rider comfort, and Euro 5 compliance.
The 2021 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce range is made up of four variants: Rosso, Lusso, Lusso SCS, and RC SCS. All four flavors feature the same 798cc DOHC triple-cylinder mill capable of 110hp at 10,150rpm and 80Nm of torque at 7,100rpm. On top of Euro 5 certification, the revised powertrain also gets new intake ducts for more torque between 3,000 and 6,000rpm, reduced friction and new gear ratios for better efficiency, and a redesigned exhaust system.
Revised clutch and gearbox componentry promise more comfortable shifting, though how the shifting takes place varies. For the Rosso and Lusso models, gear changes happen through a six-speed manual transmission with a quickshifter and slipper clutch. The Lusso SCS and RC SCS models, on the other hand, come with the Smart Clutch System developed in partnership with Rekluse that allows for shifting without the clutch lever.
The Lusso, Lusso SCS, and RC SCS models receive revised Sachs semi-active suspension for better comfort and handling, while the Rosso gets a manually adjustable Sachs rear shock paired with a 43mm Marzocchi fork.
To make long tours more comfortable, MV Agusta has made the scratch-resistant windscreen taller and wider, redesigned the seat to be softer, and shaved 20mm off of the seat height. The new 36-liter side bags are as wide as the handlebars, making fitting through tight spots easier.
For added security, all models (save for the Rosso) get satellite tracking as standard, allowing you to find your bike anywhere in the world.
