MV Agusta keeps the Reparto Corse editions coming (check here to see the Dragster 800 RC) with a race-liveried version of its Turismo Veloce. The MV Agusta Turismo Veloce RC is a limited edition and only 250 units will be produced.
The colorway is the primary difference between the RC and standard versions of MV’s 798ccc Triple, sport touring bike. The RC features MV’s racing red, green and white along with a black belly pan adorned with stickers from the companies that help make the bike go.
The Turismo Veloce is an elegant and unique sport touring machine in its own right. The engine is derived from the Triple in MV’s aggressive Brutale 800, with changes aimed at reducing vibration and noise. It’s gearing and six-speed transmission are designed to be durable and put power to the ground in a smoother, more touring-friendly fashion than the lively Brutale.
MV includes its latest electronically assisted shift platform, the EAS 2.0, which assists on up and down shifts. The Touring, Sport and Rain engine maps have been refined as have the Ride-by-Wire components for a more precise throttle.
Adding to the list of electronically controlled bits on the Turismo Veloce is the semi-active front and rear suspension. An inverted Sachs fork and Progressive Sachs shock adjust according to the riding conditions. Brembo braking components are kept in check by a Bosch 9+ ABS system with rear wheel lift mitigation also.
You also get touring amenities like a Garmin navigation system, 30-liter side panniers, an adjustable windshield, heated grips and cruise control.
The 120/70 ZR17 front and 190/55 ZR17 rear tires are Pirelli Scorpion Trail rubber and the forged wheels are a version of those found on the F4RC.
There’s no details on pricing and availability for the RC version of the Turismo at this point. But if you want a one-of-a-kind, head-turning, corner carving, sport touring machine, the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce RC might be the bike for you.
