MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 in the driving report

Light, agile tourer

What a surprise: The new MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 turns out to be by no means a disguised athlete with suitcases screwed on, but rather a comfortable touring motorcycle that one would rather not get off of.

Since the 1997 revival, the MV Agusta brand has in some ways struggled with its reputation. The motorcycles from Varese are considered beautiful, exclusive and sporty, but also capricious, nervous and almost bitchy. The skepticism was correspondingly high when the Italians announced a touring motorcycle. A real tourer from MV? Never in life, thought not only pessimists. It would definitely be such an easily excitable high-speed device again, only with the cases screwed on. The fact that MV then launched numerous variants of the 800 three-cylinder engine on the market within a short period of time – F3, Brutale, Dragster, Rivale, Stradale – which all primarily pursue sporting goals and are similar to one another, further fueled suspicion. But now all the unkind prophets see themselves refuted, because the MV developers can actually do otherwise. With the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 they have succeeded in creating a light, agile and at the same time comfortable motorcycle that conveys an enormous amount of driving pleasure.

Light, agile tourer

MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 is always present, always active and always a pleasure.

Three-cylinder trimmed for touring suitability

Never before has there been an MV that presented itself so well coordinated from the start. The slightly forward leaning, active seating position with the wide handlebars fits straight away, the 85 centimeters seat height may sound high-legged, but feel lower thanks to the narrow waist of the motorcycle. As usual with MV, the fully adjustable chassis with Marzocchi fork and Sachs shock absorber is rather firm, but the long tourer suspension travel ensures comfort. Above all, the three-cylinder engine of the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 has been trimmed for touring suitability. As an exception, the developers did not squeeze the very last ounce of power out of its 800 cm³, but instead left it at 110 hp and preferred to rely on ample torque. "It wasn’t easy, we really had to change our mentality," admits chief engineer Brian Gillen with a half sigh, half with a wink.

With new pistons, modified cams and a modified intake and exhaust tract, the three-cylinder is still lively, but with impeccable manners. It reaches its maximum torque of 83 Newton meters at 8000 revolutions. But what is much more important is that 90 percent of it already unfolds at 3500 rpm. Powerful and yet smooth, the engine picks up speed to give it a powerful boost at 6000 rpm. The sports genes cannot be completely denied, and after all, Turismo Veloce means something like "fast tourism" in German. The youngest member of MV Agusta lives up to this name – if you want to. But there is another way. If you switch from the Sport driving mode with 110 HP to Touring with 90 HP, the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 is even more refined, responds a little more gently and can be guided through the varied labyrinth of curves around Nice in a relaxed manner even in fifth or sixth gear. The driving pleasure is accompanied by the rough sound of the three-cylinder, which sometimes barks, sometimes hisses, sometimes roars, but always gives you goose bumps.

Currently the most compact and agile tourer in the range

A feast for all the senses, because the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 comes across as spirited and dynamic in every driving mode. It literally thirsts for the next bend, reacts willingly but not particularly nervously to steering commands and seems to fall into any desired lean angle by itself. The brakes bite strongly, but properly metered, the standard Pirelli Scorpion Trail tires harmonize well. The fact that this motorcycle works so playfully is not least due to its compact dimensions. Touring steamer? Nothing. The MV measures just 90 centimeters at its widest point, the handlebars, and thanks to the well-integrated case, the rear is even narrower. It is also comparatively light: Ready to drive, which means that its large 22-liter tank is 90 percent full, it weighs 228 kilograms – "that’s 20 to 50 kilograms less than the competition," says MV boss Giovanni Castiglioni with a view of Ducati Multistrada & Co. notes. Whereby: There are actually no direct competitors, no other manufacturer currently has such a compact and agile tourer in their range.

In electronic terms, the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 is fully up to date. It has a total of four driving modes, eight-stage traction control, ride-by-wire and a shift assistant. Shifting up and down without using the clutch – do you really need that on a tourer? Of course not, but it kind of adds the icing on the cake to the already enormous driving pleasure of this motorcycle. The touring equipment includes cruise control as well as two sockets and two USB ports, the windshield can be adjusted by six centimeters with one hand and provides adequate, if not perfect, protection. Two compartments in the cladding provide practical storage space for the usual odds and ends – from cell phones to sunglasses.

Real fuel gauge shows off in the cockpit of the Turismo Veloce 800

And there is another novelty, at least for MV, because instead of the simple reserve light that was customary up to now, the cockpit of the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 now has a real fuel gauge. The two 30-liter suitcases cost extra, however, which drives the already hefty price of almost 15,000 euros upwards. MV would also not be MV if 200 pieces of a special model weren’t launched right away: Edition 1 for just under 16,000 euros comes with cases, heated grips, main stand and a navigation system as standard. The Lusso, which is due to come in June and also has a semi-active chassis, will cost another 1000 euros more.

Despite all the enthusiasm for this light and compact tourer, there are also points of criticism. On the one hand, there is the cockpit, which is easy to lose sight of in the forward-leaning sitting position. In addition, the TFT display is so overloaded with information that you don’t even know where to look. The suitcases, which have to be fastened with a split pin and are also made of cheap-looking lightweight plastic, are not really appealing, which does not justify the set price of 900 euros. But these are rather minor details that one quickly forgets in the saddle of this MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800. Because you only want one thing with it: drive, drive and drive again and again.
