MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Finally Coming in Spring 2015

MV Agusta has this nasty habit of debuting motorcycles in the autumn trade shows, and then taking a couple years to actually produce the machines for public consumption. Such was the case with the MV Agusta F3, the MV Agusta Rivale, and now with MV Agusta Turismo Veloce.

The Varese company’s challenge to the Ducati Multistrada (which will be a new model for 2015, by the way), the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce builds upon the now exhausted aesthetic of the Italian company, adding a more upright seating position and touring focus to the brand’s lineup.

The Turismo Veloce was supposed to be the first MV Agusta with the updated MVICS 2.0 electronics package, though the Dragster RR and Brutale 800 RR have seemingly beaten the sport-tourer to the punch, having just had their press debut last week (don’t worry, MV Agusta didn’t invite us to attend).

If rumors are true, MV Agusta will yet debut another model along the adventure-touring vein at EICMA. Expected to fall somewhere between the Turismo Veloce and Rivale, the new model should take on Ducati’s Hyperstrada in terms of performance and use, and be shipping to dealers in 2014.

Could it be the Turismo Leggero we spotted in trademark filings from MV Agusta? Other sites tip the name Stradale. Only time will tell what is what.
