- Comes draped in carbon fibre bodywork
- Sits above the Superveloce 800
- Dubbed the Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro
MV Agusta has unveiled its latest supersport motorcycle at EICMA 2022. While it wears the existing Superveloce tag, the latest model is litre-class offering rather than an 800. Let’s see what the new Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro has to offer.
The new Superveloce 1000 features a similar design language as the 800. But on a closer look, you’ll notice that it not only gets a different fascia but even the side panels are larger, it gets appendages, the tail section is much sharper, and the lower fairing too gets aerodynamic gills. Overall, the Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro’s bodywork is extremely sporty and should be suitable for the track. Not to mention, apart from the fuel tank which is made of thermoplastic resin, most of the body parts are made of carbon fibre.
MV Agusta has plonked a 998cc inline four-cylinder engine in the Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro. It belts out 208bhp and 116.5Nm. Owners can also install the racing kit and bump up the output to 212bhp. MV provides a titanium Arrow exhaust which is exclusively made for the new Superveloce 1000. The motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox which comes with a bi-directional quickshifter.
The MV supersport rides on Öhlins Nix EC forks with electronic compression/rebound and manual preload adjustability. Meanwhile, the rear end gets an Öhlins EC TTX monoshock. For the braking hardware, the Serie Oro packs Brembo Stylema monobloc calipers with dual 320mm discs up front and a 220mm rear disc. The setup is mounted on forged aluminum wheels. The bike benefits from cornering ABS, wheelie control, eight-level traction control, and rear-wheel lift control as well. All these rider aids are accessed on the 5.5-inch TFT screen.
MV displayed the bike at EICMA 2022 and is likely to put it on sale soon. That said, with a limited number of models, the bike is unlikely to make it to India.
