Gear Venture Bike Nepal Pvt. Ltd has launched the MV Agusta’s Turismo Veloce 800 adventure bike in Nepalese market. The Turismo Veloce comes in three different variants: Lusso, Lusso SCS, and RC with a starting price of Rs. 57,90,000 in Nepal.
It is a sporty touring bike inspired by its bigger sibling the F3 as it gets semi fairing treatment. It seems that they just went on some bodywork by adding comfort, load capacity, and contained fuel consumption for making a perfect tourer. Upfront it gets the signature MV LED headlight with integrated LED DRLs, adjustable windscreen, and handguards with built-in indicators.
As far as looks are concerned, the Turismo Veloce has aggressive-looking air vents below the headlamps that further enhance the look of the bike. The Veloce houses a luggage box on each side and the three-barrel exhaust system that we’ve seen on other MVs. It also has a big TFT screen that displays tons of information to riders such as gear indicators, riding modes, time, etc and through the buttons on the handlebar one can tune the engine map according to their preferences.
Underneath the semi-fairing and trellis frame is the heart of the Veloce which is a 798cc, inline-three cylinder derived from the F3. The unit produces 108bhp of power and 80Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed gearbox with a quick shifter.
MV Agusta has equipped the bike with a ride-by-wire throttle, 8-level traction control, and slipper clutch. It also has a counter-rotating crankshaft to enhance the riding experience. Safety is ensured by the two channels Bosch 9 Plus ABS system with a rear-wheel lift-up mitigation system. Apart from that it also gets the MVCSC (MV Agusta Chassis Stability Control) electronics package and the MVICS 2.0 (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System).
Some other features include built-in Bluetooth support to allow up to 9 different devices to be paired, the immobilizer, two USB sockets, and two 12V power points. The Lusso (luxury) version features electronically controlled semi-active suspension as standard equipment, heated handgrips, a center stand, and built-in GPS sensor.
