Premium motorcycle brand, MV Agusta, has started production on the much-awaited, retro-inspired sportbike, the Superveloce 800 Serie Oro, 2 years after it was first shown to the public. The top-of-the-line Gold Series will have an SRP of €28,240 or roughly about PhP1.6-million (It could cost up to more than PhP2-million due to taxes and duties).
In June last year, MotoPinas.com has reported that MV Agusta has begun taking orders for the 300-unit only Superveloce Serie Oro. This new motorcycle was originally showcased as a concept motorcycle at the 2018 EICMA in Milan and at the prestigious vintage car show, Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in 2019.
Beyond the retro looks, the Superveloce 800 Serie Oro is as modern as any MV Agusta motorcycle today. The Superveloce 800 is powered by the same 798cc three-cylinder motor of the F3 that produces 150 PS (148hp). The engine features a counter-rotating crankshaft coupled to a 6-speed gearbox and a trademark triple-tip exhaust system (non-Gold Series).
Additionally, the Superveloce 800 has technology derived from the Brutale 1000 Gold Series, which includes a second-gen 5-inch TFT screen with smartphone connectivity that could mirror navigation functions from the rider's phone via the MV Ride app, ride-by-wire and a whole lot more.
Its weight has also been kept down to only 173kg due to the extensive use of carbon and composite materials.
