MV Agusta Enduro Veloce: KTM’s in-house competition/product

After a limited series of introductions, MV Agusta is now bringing a commuter enduro called the Enduro Veloce to the market. This MV won’t be cheap either – but it will be beautiful and unique.

It was originally supposed to be called the Lucky Explorer 9.5, then it was at the Milan 2023 motorcycle trade show as a preliminary series on the MV Agusta stand, this time called the LXP Orioli, limited to 500 copies at a price of 29,500 euros.

Now the touring enduro from MV Agusta Enduro Veloce comes to the market as a regular series model. With a wheel size of 21/18 inches and a suspension travel of 210 mm, MV Agusta advertises the road suitability of its “fast enduro” off-road characteristics.

We know the 931 cc in-line three-cylinder engine with a rear-rotating crankshaft from other models. 124 HP at 10,000 rpm and 102 Nm at 7000 rpm should be enough for rapid development. There are four maps to choose from (Urban, Touring, Off-road and Special). Lean angle-based, eight-step traction control helps on unpaved surfaces, five of which are intended for use on dry roads, two for off-road use and one for wet roads.

The chassis is, unusually for an MV, a tubular steel frame with a double loop and removable beams. Sachs provides the spring components, and an adjustable USD front fork with an internal diameter of 48 mm. The center line of the adjustable spring and linkage allows, like the fork, 210 mm of travel.

The braking system, the largest off-road (320 front disc with four-piston Brembo Stylema calipers), is controlled by Continental’s two-stage, cornering-adjustable ABS, which detects rear wheel lift and controls it. back to earth. Level 1 is intended for off-road use and controls the front wheel only.

The tubeless spoke wheels with Excel rims are shod with Bridgestone Battlax A41 90/90-21 and 150/70-18 tires. The height of the seat of 850 mm (less than two levels) does not scare all interested parties of average height. MV says dry weight of 224 kg, tank has 20 liters.

When it comes to electronics, the MV pulls out all the stops: the color display measures 7 inches diagonally and is connected to the world (and the driver’s smartphone) via Bluetooth and WiFi. Navi display on the display, cruise control, start assist, eight-step control, dual engine brake control, data recording, individually programmable engine map, dual-speed transmission, anti-theft and localization GPS. The lighting is LED technology. Available accessories include aluminum cases, protective arches and underbody protection.

The price has not yet been determined, Italian media speculates at 23,000 to 24,000 euros. This means that the MV Agusta Enduro Veloce would not be a very bitter local competition within the Pierer Mobility group for KTM and Husqvarna, at least in terms of price.
