MV Agusta Releases a “Cheaper” Version of the Superveloce 800

Continuing the trend we saw with the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR for the 2020 model year, that Italian brand from Varese has a “regular” version of its popular Superveloce 800, for sale next year.

Now while the MV Agusta Superveloce 800 might be the “cheaper” alternative to the $35,000 Serie Oro model, don’t let the name fool you.

The talk of the town at EICMA, all the main elements are still here on the 2020 MV Agusta Superveloce 800 that made it such a drool-worthy creation last year.

Built on top of MV Agusta’s potent three-cylinder package, the MV Agusta Superveloce 800 boasts 145hp, with 65 lbs•ft of peak torque out its 800cc engine.

The MVICS 2.0 electronics package is there as well, though it still doesn’t have IMU support like the version that comes on the four-cylinder platform, though we have been expecting this update for a while now.

This means just traction control, engine braking, and an up/down quickshifter are the highlights of the software system on this retro-cool machine.

Additionally, Marzocchi forks are mated to a Sachs rear shock, while the braking package uses M4.34 calipers at the front with dual 320mm discs. 

While we expect the MV Agusta Superveloce 800 to handle and perform at speed like a dream, just like the MV Agusta F3 it is based off of, it is the retro styling of the bike that turned heads last year with the MV Agusta Superveloce 800 Serie Oro edition.

Available in two colors, either white or red, the fairings are done in plastic, rather than carbon fiber on the Serie Oro. We hear too that production on the MV Agusta Superveloce 800 (and Serie Oro) has already begun.

In Europe the machine will cost a cool €20,000, while in the USA pricing has been set at $20,998 MSRP.
