2015 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso 800 Review


2015 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso 800 on http://www.Totalmotorcycle.com

The pure emotions involved in traveling, the feeling of the open road beneath you, the limits that get pushed further every day...

MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800. A name that dates back to the early days of Meccanica Verghera, the company founded on the intuition of Count Domenico Agusta and that is now at the very pinnacle of motorcycling thanks to 75 World Championship titles and an incredible history blended with both mystique and performance.


With the Turismo Veloce (literally Fast Tourer), MV Agusta has reinterpreted the tourer concept in the name of exclusivity, agility, ease of riding and performance.


Unlike all of the heavier and oversized models offered by the competition, MV Agusta has chosen to utilize a compact and powerful 800cc engine.


Turismo Veloce brings back the essence of Granturismo. It does so with its unmistakable lines and styling solutions which provide the practicality that no Grand Tourer can do without. It reiterates the same ideal with an approach to riding which makes the new MV Agusta the ground breaker for a new way of travelling.

The pure emotions involved in traveling, the feeling of the open road beneath you, the limits that get pushed further every day.

A new dimension. A world described by turns and straight stretches, scenery and hairpin bends, asphalt. Unique sensations. And just one name: Turismo Veloce.

MV Agusta forsakes common ground and outlines a new way of understanding touring. Available in dealerships from the beginning of 2015.

Nice looking bike but scary price range for an 800. Not sure how much distance my regular passenger could handle on that pillion either. And it IS a touring bike.

Way too pricey but awesome anyway. Looks sharp, good power. I would not buy one unless I had very deep pockets and price really did not matter. Way too many very good sport tourers out their for much less money. fjr, c14, etc.

I agree on the comments about price, but then a price of a Ferrari does not stop me from drooling. It is not like I will ever own either.

Well. Kudos to MV for keeping it light and under 500lbs. But, when I can get a Triumph Tiger for under $12K US, and a FJ-09 for under $11K? Bad price/value ratio here, MV. Uncool for ridiculously optimistic pricing.

Touring for a solo rider, maybe.

That price is 22,281.12 US Dollars. Even more in Canadian $$.

Too much....

Not only that....they are calling it a tourer...but the luggage is so small. You sure wouldn't be going far or for long with such limited capacity.

About the price, as a little defense to MV Agusta:

Lamborghini Gallardo
MSRP: From $181,900
Horsepower: 543 to 562 HP

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat
MSRP: From $58,295
Horsepower: 707 HP

I love both cars and would be super-happy to own either, but the Dodge, even though it's price is more affordable and it's horsepower is greater, doesn't make it a Lamborghini Gallardo. If you want value, get a Hyundai. :D

Sorta like a MV Agusta and any Honda, Yamaha, Triumph etc. You pay for the name, the quality, technology, uniqueness and the design.

Anyone check out the 2015 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso 800 Samsung S5 like display?

This is the only MV Agusta that I ever thought wasn't stunning looking. In fact, this thing is plain fugly looking. If you are into this type of bike, I would get the Multistrada over it. Uncool.

I went with Cool. I don't particularly like the styling, but it's not bad, so I can't go uncool on that. And it does have an impressive list of kit. Price is high, yes, but it IS an MV Agusta! What did you expect... Honda pricing for an MV? I'll stick with cool. :mrgreen:

The Multistrada is certainly more practical and a better value. I never imaged myself saying that about a Ducati, which speaks volumes for the MV Agusta.

Are far as ugle, the Rivale 800 is ugle.

It's sort of a V-Strom 1000 with a ton of Italian style, isn't it? :lol:

I like it, but a price of almost EU19K is nuts. A KTM 1190 Adventure is way better value. At least you get a dose of off-roadability.

I've been disappointed with the looks of several of MV Agusta's recent bikes. The original Tamburini-designed F4 was one of the most perfectly proportioned bikes ever, IMO. They've really dropped several notches from that level.

I voted: Cool

I think it's awesome to see MV Agusta bring out so many new models, they are really testing the market! But on the other hand, too many models will water-down their sales and water-down the "uniqueness" of the brand. The brand itself it top tier, and thus the price. While I don't like the price of it (I think if it comes to the USA/Canada it will be $19k) I place MV Agusta above Ducati and Triumph and definitely Suzuki (which all make great bikes in their own right) so a premium has to be placed on a premium product.

2015 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso 800 - It's interesting, for me, it combines all the special, unique parts of the MV Agusta line into 1 model. The front fairing from the F4/F3, the chassis from the Brutale line, the single sided swing arm, full color display, hard bags and all in a aerodynamic package. It's weird though that it just doesn't look as good at it's components do (if they each sat alone). The bike seems to me to need more wheelbase as it's so tall it looks a little "squished". Odd. The only real functional item that I'd like to see improved is the seat looks a little "thin and non-touring like". So that gives it a Cool for me.

2015 MV Agusta Turismo - Coolness Factor = 60.0%
Featured: January 9nd, 2015 - January 15th, 2015
Most popular vote category: Awesome/Cool

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=50623
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... so-800.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2015 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso 800 is:

Awesome (3 points) 38% [ 10 ]
Cool (2 points) 38% [ 10 ]
Uncool (1 point) 12% [ 3 ]
Fail (0 point) 12% [ 3 ]

Total votes: 26


= a Coolwall Factor of 68.0%

NOTES: Top of the line Sport Tourer, from a top of the line manufacturer with top of the line features/styles/technology to match but with a top of the line price as well. It's impossible not to see something on the new 2015 MV Agusta Turismo you don't like, but the overall package might be too much icing on the cake. A 68% cool factor is pretty sold and it should "sell well" for a bike in it's price category, but MV needs to do more to rank it higher.

Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!
