MV Agusta Superveloce is confirmed for production

Apparently, the looks of this bike were not enough to sell it, so MV Agusta resorted to the oldest trick in the book.

The MV Agusta Superveloce will see production, coming as a 2020 model.

Debuted at the 2018 EICMA show in concept form, the Superveloce came onto the scene as a tribute to MV Agusta’s racing heritage. Built around the company’s three-cylinder engine and the same frame as the F3 800 series, it follows a familiar pattern. Most of MV Agusta’s models in recent years have been remixes of existing technology, as the company works to regain its financial footing.

In this case, the engine might see a bit of a hot-rod job, but it’s the carbon-fibre bodywork, trick-looking wheels, and general styling that will suck most buyers in. The engine will likely make 150ish horsepower and put out 65 lb-ft of torque, give or take a bit, as that what it makes in its current configuration.

You can see the show circuit version of the Superveloce above, and MV Agusta’s Instagram teaser below. The Instagram shot doesn’t give much away, but it looks like basically the same thing as what we saw at the show. This doesn’t mean this is what the street-legal version will 100 per cent look like, but it’s a pretty good idea at this point, we’d think.

Will it come to Canada? It’s been pretty hard to get your hands on an MV Agusta in Canada in recent years, and we’d expect the price tag on this bike to top $25,000 CAD. We’ll probably know more after this year’s show circuit, so if you really, really want this bike, stay tuned, and we’ll share more deets when we get them.


  1. One more comment about this styling. If in fact the fairing design was in some way inspired by Craig Vetter, I say BRAVO! A fitting tribute to a man who hired very large numbers of handicapped and disabled workers for his plant in the 70’s and 80’s, long before it was neither “The thing to do” nor required by legislation in the workplace. His contributions to the motorcycling industry were enormous.

  2. A round headlight? Who’s on this design team? Either go with the currently popular scrambler, retro, “authentic” look or go modern, angular (which the MV currently is). Don’t combine the two. Was someone inspired by a classic late-seventies Vetter fairing?
