Selling like, 148bhp, hot cakes MV Agusta’s Superveloce 800 is now on sale – but you’d better get in quick

It was wheeled out to a fanfare at EICMA last year as a look-what-we’ve-made show queen, and only last month won the Concept Bikes class at the prestigious Concorso D’Eleganza Villa D’Este 2019 (a classic bash at Lake Como stuffed full of tweed-clad Americans and people in raspberry strides). And yet MV Agusta’s Superveloce 800 is already available for you to buy as a production model. It’s essentially the F3 800 sportsbike in 1960s-style carbon clothing, so that means a 798cc inline three with MotoGP-style counter-rotating crank, an unshabby 148bhp, plus the F3’s sharp chassis. The Superveloce’s bespoke body is joined by a new TFT dash, adjustable footpegs and a fuel tank strap.

Just 300 are to be built at £25,000 each, give or take, for delivery early in 2020. As Bike went to press, a few days after online ordering kicked off, there were only 100 left. However, MV call this the Superveloce ‘Serie Oro’, the tag they always use for the glitzy first batch of a new model. So there’s every chance a lessblingy version will follow later next year.

That colour is ‘Agostini Silver’. Might have guessed…
