MV Agusta Superveloce 800 concept is a GP tribute

Published: 21 November 2018

MV Agusta unveiled a new Superveloce concept at EICMA 2018 in Milan; an F3 based tribute to the 1970s and their years of GP racing.

To make the bike, MV say they started with an F3 800 chassis, engine and brakes, but they wanted to enhance the sporty F3 even more. The F3 is already a fast bike, quick to rev and turn in thanks to the counter-rotating crank.

But for the Superveloce, MV have completely remapped the engine to fatten up the midrange and MV say there’s plenty more top end potential. As part of the engine tune, MV have worked with SC Projects to create an asymmetrical 3-into-1-into-3 exhaust, reminiscent of MV’s racing history.

After they tuned the innards, MV then built an all-new fairing package for it out of carbon fibre, which takes major styling cues from their race bikes from the Ago era. The fairing houses two circular LED lighting units front and rear for a classic look, while the yellow tinted screen shelters a brand new, full-colour TFT dash.

Now before you get too excited this is just a concept, however MV say that this Superveloce is a precursor to a production model that will appear in the latter half of 2019.

In the meantime though, MV have got some big plans to shape up their business practices so they can deliver on what they keep promising.

"Our first priority is to increase level of service and improve supply," says Timar Sardarov, CEO. "The company went through a crisis and a lot of our supply chain has been disrupted. We have to rebuild the confidence with our suppliers and we will do that through consistent work.

"We are opening a flagship showroom in London and we’re going to work with the existing network in the UK to make it larger. We will not increase the number of dealers, but work with current ones to make them bigger and represent us better. We want to be known for good service, easy access to parts, merchandise, etc. This is our top priority."
