Fast Tourer...

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 Turismo Veloce celebrates the unique pleasure of Grand Tourismo with two models of MV Agusta: the first for traveling through time and space with the feeling of agility that only a complete but essential motorcycle can provide.

I went with uncool I usually love MV's but this one seems to be more flash than I like. It's probably a bike once you ride you go WOW and like I said I usually like MV's a lot this one just doesn't do it for me.

Cool, for being an MV, a triple, and a middle-weight sport tourer, all of which are interesting and rare. I just wish it didn't have pointless "faux adventure bike" styling. 870mm seat height is taller than the seat height of a BMW 1200GS for instance (says the resentful shortie).

I like its looks. (except for the little fender over the back wheel)....I think its cool. I like the flash of red and I like the look of the exhaust.

It's probably too expensive being Italian and all.

I think It looks great. Named fast tourer but no bags or back box? Reminds me of an fjr in ways. If the price is not too high I think it is an awesome.

I've been looking at this thread for a couple days, trying to like this bike. Not working. I can't believe this was designed by the same people who did the F4, one of the most perfectly proportioned bikes ever. (Yes, yes, I know this is a different genre of bike.... still not working.) It looks like a cartoon. As far as engineering and functionality go, no clue, haven't seen any tests yet. Uncool for appearance fail.

I think it looks great, the way the fairing flows into the tank, down into the saddle and then arches back up into the pillion -- there's a blending in there that manages somehow to look both futuristic and organic. Little cues like the lumbar pad suggest there's been some attention paid to comfort, though I've never sat on one myself. And did you notice how from the profile view that front fairing looks like sabre tooth tiger? Look again, you'll see it. Lastly, on styling, those tubular tail lights are by far one of the edgiest design choices I've ever seen, awesome!

I'd like to see the panniers that come with the Lusso, is that just a trim level or considered an entirely different model?

One note, Blues makes an interesting observation. What IS that thing over the rear tire? It's not connected to anything that I can see, surely that's just part of the track stand? They've chosen not to show us the streetside view.

I'm giving this an Awesome. I'm sure the performance and technology earns that by itself, but I just love those funky flowing modern lines and that's where I'm voting from.

The panniers are on the bike in Feb. Motorcyclists review of the bike, they look good but would only carry some rain gear and your lunch to work.

That's the rear fender/hugger. It is connected to the bike on the swingarm side of the bike.

I am with you on this one, I'm giving it an awesome for pretty much all that you said above. Keys for me: TAIL LIGHTS! and the touring capabilities on a wonderful sports bike. I cannot see the ugliness that others are seeing in it. AWESOME!*

(*My Awesome vote comes with a caveat, that if it does what it says on the tin then it truly deserves this rating. However, if you can only ride it comfortably for an hour, then I change my vote to Fail. LOL!)

I voted: Awesome

How can I not give it an Awesome if I think my old V-Strom was Cool? :D

Fuel tank capacity 20 l, a mid ranged tourer (I can't see it yet as a cross country one like MV is suggesting) and those pipes, wow. A 800cc engine is perfect as long as it isn't buzzy and the seat looks "ok" considering it is an exotic bike. Yes, MV Agusta, the Lamborghini of motorcycles, can make a tourer, but I wouldn't be treating it like my old V-Strom... :D

It's good to see a company like MV Agusta reaching out into a different market segment and using one of their incredible engines to boot.

Awesome.
