MV Agusta debuted the Superveloce superbike in 2020, bringing a fusion of vintage aesthetic with contemporary lines. And now the Italian bike maker has introduced the 2021 edition of the Superveloce with the addition of the new Superveloce S. The motorcycle now meets Euro5 emission regulations that make 2021 MV Agusta Superveloce India launch a possibility very soon. Moreover, both versions sport new colour options and plenty of upgrades.
The biggest update on the 2021 MV Agusta Superveloce and the Superveloce S is the updated 798 cc in-line three-cylinder engine that develops 147PS at 13,000RPM and 88Nm of peak torque available at 10,100RPM. The bike can achieve a top speed of 240 kmph. The engine has seen upgrades to meet the new regulations that include new titanium valve guides with DLC coating to reduce friction. The injectors are now larger and there’s a new oil cooler that also helps improve efficiency.
MV Agusta has also remapped the ECU on the 2021 Superveloce for a stronger mid-range power delivery while the exhaust has been redesigned too. The motor continues to be paired with a 6-speed transmission with MV Agusta’s third-generation bi-directional quickshifter. Electronic aids are aplenty on the Superveloce that now gets an IMU measurement system. This brings features like lean-sensitive 8-level traction control. The Continental-sourced ABS unit also comes with cornering ABS. There’s also wheelie control, along with the existing four riding modes – Sport, Rain, Race, and Custom.
MV Agusta has also made changes to the chassis with the addition of new frame plates for better rigidity. The Marzocchi-sourced fully adjustable USD front forks have been tweaked for better damping control, while the rear continues to use the same Sachs monoshock unit with full adjustability.
For those planning to order the 2021 MV Agusta Superveloce S, the new top-spec version adds tubeless tyres with wire-spoked wheels to complete that vintage look. The seat is now covered in brown Alcantara, while the pillion seat gets a cowl. The ECU is further mapped for better performance, while the exhaust system is upgraded to an Arrow unit.
The MV Agusta Superveloce S is finished in the Surreal White Matt Gold shade that’s exclusive to the model. There’s also the new Pearl Yellow paint scheme that adds more flair to the motorcycle, while the Ago Red looks as scintillating as ever on the motorcycle.
There’s no word as to when MV Agusta will bring the 2021 Superveloce and the Superveloce S to India. The company has been looking for a new partner in India ever since it broke up with the Kinetic Group-backed MotoRoyale last year. Do expect a premium price tag when it does arrive here between Rs. 25-30 lakh, making this motorcycle a genuine collector’s item.
