WE'RE EAGERLY waiting to find out how MV Agusta's new SCS automatic clutch works on the new Turismo Veloce 800 SCS. Shaun Pope is there at the launch in Varese riding the new bike, and has sent back these pics and details on the new clutch unit.
"The bike weighs just 192kg so lightest and narrowest in segment and most compact. It's not like your average fat multi. That clutch is the main thing though - it's the first production bike with clutchless pull away, apparently."
"It also accelerates faster than the superbike they say - 0-62mph in 3.15 seconds..."
We'll have more on the Turismo Veloce 800 tomorrow. Check back then for more!
