MV Agusta showcases the LXP Orioli at EICMA

It was a great turnout at this year’s EICMA in Italy and there are quite a lot of new and upcoming models that graced the event. For the Italians, MV Agusta showcased what they touted as the “world’s first luxury all-terrain motorcycle” – the LXP Orioli.

As the name implies, it’s a tribute to the 90s Lucky Explorer (Lucky X-Plorer) bikes from Cagiva that legendary Italian rider Edi Orioli piloted during that era’s Dakar Rally races.

While there’s no date, SRP, or Philippine release for the LXP Orioli, we’ve compiled some numbers that would pretty much tell us everything about the new bike.

931cc, 3-cylinder

The new LXP Orioli will be powered by the same 3-cylinder powerplant found in the Brutale 800, albeit with a larger 931cc bore. MV Agusta claims that the LXP Orioli’s engine is capable of churning out 125 Ps of power and 102 Nm of torque.

230 km/h top speed

Even with less than 1,000cc in displacement, the LXP Orioli is (claimed) capable of reaching up to 230 km/h top speed. For comparison, Ducati’s 4-cylinder, 1,158cc Multistrada V4 has a top speed of 270 km/h, while BMW’s R 1250 GS has a top speed of 213 km/h.

90s Lucky Explorer colors

As mentioned above, the new LXP Orioli pays homage to the Dakar-winning bikes of Cagiva from the 90s and its legendary rider, Edi Orioli. Cagiva is a subsidiary of MV Agusta.

21/18 wheels

Staying true to its promise of superb off-road capability, MV Agusta decided to use 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheels for the LXP Orioli as opposed to the traditional 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels of most adventure bikes in the market.


Today’s adventure bikes are packed with lots of electronic riding aids not only to make riding easier but also to make riding safer and the LXP Orioli packs the latest in terms of technology.

For instance, the LXP Orioli’s traction control has 5 specific levels for road use, 2 for off-road use, and 1 specifically for riding in the rain. Also, there are 4 riding modes and 3 ABS modes for road, off-road, and off.

850mm-870mm seat height

The LXV Orioli promises a not-so-intimidating seat height. According to MV Agusta, the LXV Orioli’s standard seat height is 870mm but can be lowered to 850mm for riders with short inseam.

For comparison, the BMW R 1250 GS’ standard seat height is also 870mm.

220 kilos dry

The new MV Agusta LXP Orioli only tips the scales at 220 kilograms dry. That means no oil, coolant, or fuel. If we top it up ride-ready, we estimate that the bike’s total weight can go between 240kg to 245 kg.

500 units only

In classic MV Agusta fashion, the LXP Orioli will be a limited production-only model of 500 units and we estimate that the price tag will be upwards of PHP 2.5 million. Philippine arrival and pricing (should anyone order here in the country) are to be determined.
