2017 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso RC Leaks Before Launch

Well, this isn’t a true leak, as the photos were intended by the manufacturer to surface the Internet and create a bit of fuss before EICMA this year, when the model will be officially presented to the public. But here it is - our first pictures with the 2017 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso and RC version.

As you imagined already, there are no detailed specifications for the new Turismo Veloce, but we can expect it at least to be powered by the same three-cylinder, 798cc engine that generates 110 hp at 10,000 rpm.

Naturally, this would be modified to meet Euro 4 emission regulations, so expect some new ECU tune-up and at least a beefier catalytic convertor. Other amenities include semi-active front and rear Sachs suspension, eight-setting traction control with three-level modes - Tourism, Sport, and Rain.

Even cooler than that is the new RC version, which comes with a racing-inspired color setup in red, white and green accents. Both models will be officially unveiled at the EICMA show in Milan, Italy, in around three weeks. So stick around for more details as soon as they are available.

The Turismo Veloce range came to market about a couple of years ago as MV Agusta’s offer for riders wanting performance, Italian style, exclusivity, and, last but not least, comfort for long runs.

Turismo Veloce is Italian for Fast Tourer, so the name is pretty self-explanatory, aside from the inherent cool factor of any bike with an Italian name. The bike is derived from the Brutale 800 but has received a lot of features which have changed the game noticeably. The Lusso suffix, which is the equivalent of Luxury speaks about high-tech helping you ride better, in more comfortable conditions and for a longer time, and not the sum of blingy materials and useless stuff.
