First shown as a concept model this time last year, the 2020 MV Agusta Superveloce 800 is ready to enter production and will be released to the market soon, says the Varese, Italy based motorcycle manufacturer. The Superveloce 800 was revealed during the 2019 EICMA show in Milan and it was accompanied by a special edition model, the Serie Oro.

Resembling a retro racing motorcycle, the Superveloce 800 comes with a round headlight as well as fairing panels that drop down to the bottom. With rear seat cover on the tail of the Superveloce 800 is cylindrical with circular LED tail light.

Under the fairing, the Superveloce 800 carries the same mechanicals as the F3 800 sports bike. This means the engine is a three-cylinder, 798 cc liquid-cooled unit producing 148 hp at 13,000 rpm and 97.7 Nm of torque at 10,600 rpm. This compares against the 128 hp and 80 Nm of the limited edition Triumph Daytona Moto2 765, which has a three-cylinder, 765 cc mill.

However, MV Agusta says the power delivery of the Superveloce 800 – meaning “super fast” in Italian – is not as aggressive as its more track-oriented bikes and is suitable for normal road riding. In terms of riding aids, the Superveloce 800 comes with ride modes, 8-level traction control and up-and-down quickshifter, as well as the TFT-LCD screen from the Brutale Serie Oro giving connectivity to the rider’s smartphone.

Differences between the MV Agusta Superveloce 800 and the Serie Oro include premium items such as carbon-fibre fairing, CNC-machined fuel filler cap with leather cover, Arrow exhaust and unique to the model spoked wheels. In Europe, the 2020 MV Agusta Superveloce 800 will retail for 19,900 euros (RM92,000) while the premium Serie Oro will go for 24,190 euros (RM112,000).
