Most expensive 800cc touring motorcycle launched in India


– Launch of the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 in India

– Priced at Rs 18.99 lakhs (ex-showroom)

– Imported from Italy

Motoroyale, the premium bicycle arm of Kinetic Group has launched the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 in India. At Rs 18.99 lakhs (ex-Mumbai showroom), that makes it the most expensive 800cc touring motorcycle in the country. However, the company offers the bike at Rs 16.99 lakhs (ex-showroom) for the first three customers.

The Turismo Veloce, just like the other motorcycles in the MV Agusta, is beautiful and very ambitious. It is the only touring brand in the country’s line-up. Although there is a large market for touring motorcycles in India, the Turismo Veloce 800 will occupy a very specialized space. The company believes there are a few Indian buyers who will appreciate the Italian design as well as good performance.

This touring motorcycle is built around a steel trellis frame that contains the liquid-cooled 798cc inline triple-cylinder engine. It’s the same engine seen on the F3 800. This engine produces 110 hp of peak power at 11,500 rpm and 83 Nm of peak torque at 7,600 rpm. This engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox assisted by an electronic high and low quickshifter and a hydraulic slip clutch. The suspension setup includes Marzocchi inverted forks up front and a Sachs monoshock at the rear. Braking functions are provided by a pair of 320mm discs with four-piston calipers at the front and a 220mm disc at the rear, accompanied by Bosch dual-channel ABS.

Reservations for this bike have already started at all Motoroyale dealers and are available in three colors: gray, mica blue and red with dark gray as a secondary color. This bike will be imported to India as a fully built unit (CBU), and this is the reason for the high price. In terms of competitions, there is the BMW F750GS and the Triumph Tiger 800 XRx, but these two bikes cost a few hundred thousand less.
