“Comfortable, agile in curves, stable on the autobahn” is an initial verdict on the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800.
In the first performance measurement, the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 did not quite come close to the factory specifications: It only achieved 106 instead of 110 hp and 78 Nm at 8300 rpm instead of 83.
The cotter pins that are supposed to secure the smart cases are not really up to date.
Also ultra-modern, but not good: The TFT display of the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 is hopelessly overloaded.
A deep look from LED lights: headlights and taillights are ultra-modern.

MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 in the long-term test
Experience over 50,000 kilometers
The MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 has been running the MOTORRAD endurance test since June 15, 2015 and has accumulated 42,500 kilometers since then.
850 km: Endurance test greeting
MOTORRAD starts a full TV program, because "TV" is the internal abbreviation for the Turismo Veloce at MV Agusta, which has been added to the long-term test fleet since the end of June. The silver-gray machine was delivered directly to the Alpen-Masters in the Dolomites. The MV Agusta had only 300 kilometers Turismo Veloce 800 there on the clock, because the factory didn’t have time for the usual longer run-in stretches if they wanted to take part in the 2015 Alpine Masters.
The MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800, announced as a sporty tourer, had to prove its qualities in the mountains around the Fassa Valley. Test editor Johannes Müller brought them from the Alps to the editorial office in Stuttgart, and he made friends with the Italian on the 700 km trip: “Comfortable, agile in curves, stable on the autobahn”, is his first conclusion. "And the three-cylinder engine just turns on."
According to the factory, it delivers 110 hp, our welcome measurement showed 106 hp and a maximum torque of 78 Newton meters. The engine itself is no stranger to it, MV Agusta has been building it since 2012 in different displacements, namely with 675 and 800 cm³, in a veritable flood of models: in the F3, the Brutale, the Brutale RR, the Dragster, the Stradale, the rival and now in the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800, here with 800 cm³. Nevertheless, the drive feels different than before, because for the first time the MV engineers did not tune it for as much power as possible, but for drivability, which means: even quick rolling in fifth gear on the country road is now possible, the TV does not yaw forward without ceasing and grace.
The chassis has also changed. Up to now, MV motorcycles were always tuned as hard as a board and followed every bump in the road, but the suspension of the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 is comfortable. Overall, it is the first MV Agusta that does not constantly challenge its driver, but also allows him a little break. So far, so hopeful are the premises for a successful long-term test.
A couple of possible weak points on the few test kilometers so far also fell on the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800, which cost almost 15,000 euros. With an eagle eye, test boss Gert Thöle noticed an alarming drop of oil under the engine housing in the Alps. A possible exit point could not be found despite a long search, possibly it was just assembly oil. Nevertheless, the engine block remains under increased oil monitoring for the time being.
The split pins, which are supposed to give the cases (accessories, 900 euros) a particularly secure hold, cause slight astonishment. Their attachment is cleverly done, they are pushed onto a rail behind the passenger footrest and hung under the bench of the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800, neither bulky luggage racks nor unsightly attachments are necessary. The split pins that are supposed to additionally secure the cases are actually not needed at all. However, due to a lack of experience with luggage systems, the MV developers obviously did not really trust their own design.
As with the presentation, the display of the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 was also noticeable in the test run. It shows far too much information at once, some of which are also provided with cryptic symbols, so that the driver often stares at the screen, perplexed. But these are basically small things.
The really exciting question for the testers, however, is how the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 survives the 50,000 kilometer test – or whether at all. The only endurance test with an MV Agusta so far ended after only 12.341 kilometers. Back then, in autumn 2005, the four-cylinder engine of the F4 1000 S went up in smoke, at a speed of 250 on the motorway. After that, both sides had enough of long-term testing. Until now. Now the big TV show on MOTORRAD can begin.

6,500 km: Interim report
Hardly here is there already a hot workshop tip for the routine oil check for the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800. Precise compliance with the MV specifications is essential. So put a warm motorcycle upright, wait ten minutes – and only then check the oil level using the oil level. If you are impatient and take measurements sooner, you will not get the correct result and quickly pour in a few extra deciliters of oil, which are not necessary at all.
And then there was another very strange defect: Sometimes the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 started by itself when the clutch was pulled without pressing the starter button. Workshop boss Gerry Wagner suspects the right switch unit including the starter button. Because the start and kill switch not only brings the engine to life and lets the igniting spark die again, it also serves to adjust the driving modes when the engine is running.
The phenomenon was temporarily reproducible, but has now disappeared again. The testers are curious to see whether this electronics fips will come back one day.
It was easier to replace the bracket that attaches the rear spring preload handwheel to the frame. The small metal part was broken for some inexplicable reason, which is why the handwheel was suspended between the frame and the swing arm.
15,150 km: Endurance test news
The Italians are currently in economic difficulties, so the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 has to hold the flag high.
The weak battery was replaced before Christmas, the cause of various electronic problems. The MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 recently spent two weeks at the dealer because no oil filters were available. After all, the oil change was done without replacing the filter, which inevitably has to be done later.
31,000 km: Trouble in the hindquarters
Noticeable grinding noises from the hindquarters of the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 made an unscheduled workshop-
Appointment necessary. Diagnosis: The distance between the sprocket carrier and the eccentric bushing had shrunk to zero, the parts were already grinding against each other.
Basically, the sprocket carrier sits on one side of the eccentric bushing and the rear wheel on the other. Both components are fixed with nuts and preloaded with their tightening torque. Several bushes fix the position of the individual bearings on the rear axle.
One of these sockets had clearly visible pressure marks on its face. It cannot be said with certainty whether the socket was installed slightly tilted, there was a material defect, or the entire construction is not fully developed at this point.
However, the number of eccentric units that the dealer still had in the workshop that were also replaced suggests the latter. The exchange also took square here on a guarantee.
31,270 km: winter operation
The MV Agusta Turismo Veloce is not particularly willing to take off in winter temperatures. To do this, she recently asked for the PIN code after switching it on in the morning. The ignition lock had been replaced, but could not be trained on the old dashboard including the immobilizer, which is why the instrument had to be replaced (MOTORRAD 22/2016).
After switching the ignition off and on again, the MV gave the green light. But even after two days on the charger, the battery struggled to bring the Italian to life after a few days in the garage in freezing temperatures. After all, the high-quality spring elements work surprisingly smoothly even at sub-zero temperatures.
32,297 km various capricorns
The most touristy of all MVs inspires emotionally inclined testers. But her ailments keep her busy again and again. In December 2016, the 30,000 inspection with adjusting the valves, new spark plugs, an air and gasoline filter and rear brake pads cost an impressive 1,381.13 euros. Uff. The rear license plate light is 62.95 euros, its installation costs 136.50 euros – plus VAT.
The MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 got off to a curious start in 2017. Two editors took the freshly inspected machine out once in a left and later in a right bend: They drove in third gear, but when switching from pushing mode to pulling the engine did not stop at the apex of the bend More gas. The colleagues quickly switched down to idle, then switched the ignition off and on again when the vehicle was stationary. It only continued after restarting the engine.
The MV Agusta Turismo Veloce was therefore guaranteed a right switch unit including cables and a new lean angle sensor at mileage 32,297, better safe than sorry. In addition, the oil pressure switch was also exchanged under warranty.
In addition, the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 received a new quickshifter: Previously, the blipper function had failed, downshifting without the clutch had become impossible. The ad appeared in the cockpit "Clutch switch error", and the check engine light flickered. The traction control also switched itself off automatically, but worked again after restarting the engine.
The delivery of all spare parts took several weeks.
