The message from MV Agsuta was short and sweet on social media, “We feed your desire. The MV Agusta Superveloce. Coming 2020.” Three terse sentences, and with that we have confirmation that the MV Agusta Superveloce 800 will be a 2020 model year bike for the Italian brand.
It makes sense, though, as the Superveloce got a huge response on its debut last year at EICMA – almost eclipsing the company’s new production model, the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro, which we have heard very little about since the Italian trade show, and still doesn’t show up on the brand’s website.
Back to the Superveloce 800 though, the machine is a neo-retro take on the MV Agusta F3 800 sport bike, which it shares a platform with. This makes the MV Agusta Superveloce 800 mostly a styling exercise…but it is quite the design, if we do say so.
The 1970s vibe is completed with an asymmetrical three-pipe exhaust and carbon fiber bodywork, and sports MV’s new TFT dash. All the lighting is done via LEDs, making this really a modern-meets-history sort of affair.
MV Agusta’s three-cylinder platform is certainly getting some mileage from the Varesinis, but we like what the Italians have done with the Superveloce 800 – it goes beyond just being a recycling of the company’s previous work.
However, it will be curious to see how limited this model is in its production, and where it will land on the pricing scale for would-be buyers. We expect more details later this year, around November.
