MV Agusta Enduro Veloce adventure bike confirmed for NZ Release

MV Agusta confirms its new Enduro Veloce adventure bike is heading to New Zealand

It’s fair to say that when MV Agusta announced its limited edition LXP Orioli we were less than impressed. A small batch “luxury” off-roader really didn’t make much sense to us. Thankfully, MV never intended to let its off-road ambitions end with the LXP, and has finally announced the full production version of its first adventure bike - suitably named the Enduro Veloce.


Like the LXP Orioli, the Enduro Veloce (which is such a cool name!) runs to the hum of a 931cc triple producing 124hp at 10,000rpm and 102Nm at 7,000rpm. Designed, developed, and built entirely at the firm’s factory, the engine weighs in at just 57 kg. MV Agusta hasn’t released official weight specs for the Enduro Veloce, but considering its based on the LXP Orioli we’d assume a similar dry weight of 224kg and around 240kg wet.


Running a ride-by-wire system means the Enduro Veloce benefits from all the tech MV could possibly throw at it.

Along with cornering traction control and ABS, cruise control and Rear Wheel Lift-Up Mitigation, the Enduro Veloce also gets four riding modes - Urban, Touring, Off-Road and Custom All-Terrain. All of this is controlled through a 7-inch TFT dash.


Like the rest of MV Agusta range, the Enduro Veloce features built-in Bluetooth connectivity with the free MV Ride app, which has been significantly revised and updated to make it even more efficient and advanced in terms of connectivity. The rider can now enter a destination and view the route, turn by turn, on the colour TFT display and by enabling the Trip record functionality, data acquisition is active during riding. That means not only can you track your journey, you also will be able to look at all kinds of interesting data including the route, and data regarding speed, gears used, lean angle, altitude and more.


Styling has been toned down somewhat from the LXP, with the Enduro Veloce getting a two-tone paint treatment in MV’s Ago Red and Ago Silver colour combination. Interestingly, MV appears to have dropped the standard crash protection that the LXP benefits from for the full production bike which could be a reason why it has a very contemporary Italian design feel compared to its limited edition stable mate.

Like the limited edition bike, the Enduro Veloce is sprung by a 48mm Sachs fork with adjustable compression, rebound and pre-load and an adjustable Sache mono shock. Both ends can move through 210mm of travel while the bike features 230mm of ground clearance to work with.

 

While the seat height is a rather tall 870 mm, MV has ensured those of us short in the leg department have a look in by giving it 20mm of adjustment which can see it drop to 850mm. The shape and padding of the seat have been carefully designed to ensure comfort and adequate support in all conditions of use, including long-range highway travel.

 

As you’d expect, MV has gone to the top of the shelf when it comes to its braking system of choice, with Brembo Stylema callipers on 320 mm floating discs at the front and a dual-piston calliper with 265 mm disc at the rear.

As standard, the Enduro Veloce mounts Bridgestone Battlax A41 tyres in sizes 90/90-21 and 150/70-18 on Takasago Excel tubeless wheels with an elegant black finish to set them apart from the limited edition LXP. 


While pricing is expected to be announced closer to the bike’s August 2024 arrival, the addition of the Enduro Veloce to the MV Agusta range is sure to be a welcome shot in the arm for the brand which only registered three (3) bikes for Kiwi roads in 2023.
