Is the MV Agusta Superveloce 1000 Becoming a Reality?
In 2022, MV Agusta revealed the Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro, a retro-themed superbike based on the Brutale 1000 hyper-naked machine. However, it seemed that the bike would not be produced. Recent Australian type-approval documents suggest otherwise, potentially indicating a full-production model of the Superveloce 1000.
The Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro stands out as the only retro-inspired liter-class supersport bike on the market. While the Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR is similar, it lacks a full fairing. This unique combination of retro style and cutting-edge technology is likely to appeal to riders in search of a niche market.
The superbike segment is filled with powerful machines like the BMW M 1000 RR, Ducati Panigale V4, and Aprilia RSV4. What sets the MV Agusta Superveloce 1000 apart is its fusion of iconic elements from the Italian brand. It combines features from the now-discontinued F4 superbike, the Brutale, and the Rush 1000, making it a logical step up from the Superveloce 800.
In terms of performance, the Superveloce 1000 boasts a 998cc inline-four engine, producing an impressive 205 horsepower at 13,000 rpm. It shares a frame with its naked siblings, maintaining a compact wheelbase. Stylistically, the bike features a sleek full fairing, a single circular headlight, and retro-inspired design elements throughout.
The Superveloce 1000 also incorporates bare carbon elements, a single-sided swingarm, and nine-spoke alloy wheels. It features MV's signature quad exhausts, a streamlined tail section with an integrated passenger seat, and bar-end mirrors for a sleek retro aesthetic.
While MV Agusta has not officially announced the launch of the Superveloce 1000, the bike's type approval documents suggest that it is ready for production. It is only a matter of time before we see this highly anticipated bike unveiled in all its glory.
