Kinetic owned Motoroyale has launched the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 in India today. Priced from Rs 18.99 lakh, ex-sh, the bike is now on sale across India. Apart from launching a new bike, Motoroyale also announced the opening of a new dealership in Navi Mumbai.
MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 enters into the adventure touring segment in India. It features a traditional design language and borrows inspiration from the F3 supersport where its fascia is concerned while it gets an exhaust as seen on the Brutale.
True to its touring stance, the ride position is more upright with high set handlebars, a sculpted fuel tank, split seat and tall windscreen. It also receives an LED tail lamp, knuckle guards and long travel suspension. Watch the official TVC video below.
Positioned on a trellis frame, engine specifications of MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 are same as that seen on F3 800 and Brutale 800. This 798cc, inline, 3 cylinder engine offers 108 bhp power at 10,150 rpm and 83 Nm torque at 7,100 rpm mated to a 6 speed gearbox. Top speed is 230 kmph. It gets slipper clutch and quick shifter along with ride by wire throttle and 8 levels of traction control.
Suspension in the front is via Marzocchi upside down forks and Sachs monoshock at the rear, along with preload, rebound and compression adjustment. Braking is through dual 320mm disc in the front with four pot calipers and 220mm disc at the rear. It gets 17” alloy wheels wrapped in 120/70-section front and 190/55-section rear tyres.
While the bikemaker offers three different color options of red, blue and grey in overseas markets, it is only set to be offered in a single shade in India. In global markets, the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce is offered in four variants: Standard, Lusso, Lussi SCS and RC SCS.
