MV Agusta unveils 550cc adventure-tourer at 2021 EICMA

MV Agusta has taken the wraps off its smallest motorcycle yet- an adventure tourer called the Lucky Explorer 5.5. The motorcycle is inspired by the MV Agusta Elefant of yore and poses as a modern take on the latter.

 The design is similar with an almost flat nose that is fitted with twin LED DRL rings for an angry-looking front end. There also is a large fairing with air-intakes, a robust sump guard, a high-set mudguard as well as knuckle guards. Adding to that are some snazzy graphics on the white paint. However, from the tank, all the way to the tail section, the MV Agusta Lucky Explorer 5.5 looks familiar. And that is because it is based on the QJ500GS; a bike from Qianjiang which is MV’s Chinese partner.

While the Italian manufacturer has remained tight-lipped about the Lucky Explorer 5.5, we know that it will come with the brand’s new 550cc parallel-twin engine that has a 70.5mm bore and 71mm stroke. This could mean that the engine’s torque figure would be noteworthy and available all through the rev range. To further complement its ADV character are the wire-spoke wheels and dual-sport tyres.

It is important to note that a full-fledged motorcycle is yet to be seen and the proper spec-sheet is yet to be revealed- both of which are likely to happen early next year. MV Agusta is aiming at Asian markets and a few European markets with the Lucky Explorer 5.5 that is likely to be the most-affordable offering from the manufacturer till date. And if MV decides to re-introduce itself in India, we can expect to see it here too.
