Wire-Spoked Superveloce? I’m in.
Euro 5 regulations haven’t hampered MV Agusta’s 2021 Superveloce, in fact, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer has taken the opportunity to bring some notable updates to the Superveloce line, including a new S version that has never been seen before.
Both the engine and chassis for the 2021 Superveolce have seen some great updates. The 798cc inline-three engine hasn’t lost any power due to Euro 5 regulations. The Superveloce will produce the same 147 horsepower thanks to the new titanium DLC valve guide, and MV Agusta’s iconic triple exhaust makes its way to this lightweight mid-displacement monster.

MV Agusta’s newly updated quick shifter also makes its way to the new model.
