MV Agusta Reveals New Enduro Veloce

MV Agusta Reveals New Enduro Veloce

The ADV motorcycle couldn’t be hotter than it is right now and every bike manufacturer wants its share. That includes MV Agusta, the legendary Italian racing motorcycle maker, which recently unveiled its newest creation—the Enduro Veloce.

Despite what its name might make you think, the Enduro Veloce is not an enduro machine. It’s an adventure motorcycle through and through, made to compete with the likes of Yamaha Ténéré 700, Husqvarna Norden 901, and BMW R 1300 GS.

How does the Italian adventurer measure up against its competitors? Here’s a first look at the MV Agusta Enduro Veloce


The Enduro Veloce is equipped with 931cc in-line three liquid/oil-cooled DOHC engine. This is the second-highest capacity powerplant in the current MV Agusta lineup, after the 998cc motor found on the Rush and Brutale 1000 RR/RS models.

The company promises a power output of 124 horsepower at 10,000 rpm, with the maximum torque of 75 lb-ft reached at 7,000 rpm. That said, MV Agusta claims the bike will reach 85% of the available torque already at 3,000 rpm.

Like all new-generation in-line three engines by MV Agusta, the Enduro Veloce’s motor features a counter-rotating crankshaft. This design, where the crankshaft rotates in the opposite direction of the wheels, cancels the gyroscopic effect of the front wheel, resulting in very agile behavior and fast changes in direction.

In addition, the counter-rotating crankshaft reduces engine vibration, offering a smoother and more comfortable ride. Competing bikes, like the 2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Rally, have also employed similar solutions.

The engine is connected to a six-speed gearbox. MV Electronically Assisted Shift (EAS) bi-directional quickshifter is included as standard.

Chassis, Suspension and Brakes

MV Agusta has given the motorcycle a bolt-on double cradle high-tensile steel frame with a double beam frame structure. The removable rear subframe has a trellis structure, connecting to an aluminum swingarm.

The seat height is adjustable between 33.4 and 34.2 inches. The 9-inch ground clearance allows the rider to navigate bumpier trail without scraping the bottom of the engine.

In the suspension department, both the front and rear components are supplied by Sachs, offering 8.2 inches of wheel travel at both ends of the bike. The 48mm inverted fork features compression, rebound, and preload adjustment, with the rear monoshock offering the same adjustment options.

The Enduro Veloce featured a Brembo brake system. In the front you have radially mounted four-piston calipers grabbing a 320mm disc, while in the rear is a two-piston caliper with a 265mm disc.


The electronics package on the Enduro Veloce is quite comprehensive. MV Agusta has included four ride modes on the bike—Urban, Touring, Off-Road, and Custom All-Terrain.

Traction control can be deactivated altogether or set to one of eight intervention levels (five for road use, two for off-roading, and one for wet conditions). In addition, the rider can adjust the engine control unit’s (ECU) response based on the types of tires fitted on the bike.

For engine brake intervention, you can choose between two levels that function independently of the ride modes. Level 1 offers reduced engine braking while Level 2 maximizes the effect.

You’ll also find Launch Control on the motorcycle, which allows the bike to accelerate faster. The Launch Control system works together with Front Lift Control (LFC) to keep front tire on the ground.

As with all current MV Agusta bikes, the Enduro Veloce comes standard with ABS. In addition to offering cornering-ABS, the rider can choose between two ABS intervention levels, depending on the riding conditions. Last but not least, the bike comes with cruise control.

For controlling the electronics suite, you get a seven-inch HD TFT screen and backlit handlebar buttons. The screen can hook up to your phone through the MV Ride app for turn-by-turn navigation, viewing operating parameters, and more.

Style and Design

In looks and style, the Enduro Veloce goes mostly along with the design language established with previous MV Agusta models. The rear section of the bike is relatively minimalistic and stripped-down compared to the more, shall we say, voluptuous front.

That said, the Enduro Veloce is recognizably an adventure bike. Its closest equivalent in the MV Agusta catalog would be the Turismo Veloce, but this adventurer comes to its own with a more robust fairing and a less sharp profile. The engine guards on the bottom add to the trail-bouncing appearance.

MV Agusta is a racing motorcycle company at heart, however, and that can be seen in the Enduro Veloce’s aerodynamics. The company says it has done extensive testing (both in computer simulations and real roads) to ensure the bike directs airflow away from the rider and into the engine for a comfortable and reliable ride.

The bike comes only in an Ago Red/Ago Silver colorway. Although some riders may pine for more options, the default scheme does communicate that this is an Italian machine.
