MV Agusta has announced three new models for 2023, with a new Superveloce, Brutale 1000 RR and Ampelio scooter all being revealed at the EICMA show in Milan last week. 

MV is regarded is one of the more exclusive manufacturers in motorcycling, of course, and part of that exclusivity comes from their history, and part of it comes from the series of special edition motorcycles they create. When MV Agusta made the Superveloce Ago, they combined the two, and in some ways that is also their aim for 2023. Additionally, MV brings technical updates to the Brutale 1000 RR and RS models, and looks to the future with a new electric scooter.

2023 MV Agusta Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro

The MV Agusta Superveloce must be considered one of the most aesthetically pleasing motorcycles on the current market. The smooth cafe racer lines combine with the red and silver paint of the Italian marque to create a genuinely beautiful motorcycle.

For 2023, MV Agusta brings a new version of the Superveloce, which also expands their Serie Oro range. 

The established Superveloce makes use of MV’s 800cc three-cylinder engine, but the new Serie Oro version expands to use their four-cylinder 1000cc motor. That makes the naming straightforward: MV Agusta Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro.

The Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro is based on the platform of the Brutale 1000 RR, with which the new neo-retro shares the frame, swingarm, and engine. 

That means 208 horsepower for the Superveloce 1000, as well as a maximum torque output of 116.5Nm, which MV says can power the bike to over 300kph (186mph). 

At 320kph (which seems somewhat moot), the Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro can produce 39.2kg of downforce. That is thanks to some new aerodynamic wings on the front of the bike, which certainly have a greater visual appeal than the sidepods on the F3 800. 

MV says the Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro weighs 194kg dry, which means that from 186mph it will take some stopping. To do that job, MV has sought the assistance of Brembo, who provide four-piston Stylema callipers for the dual floating 320mm discs at the front, as well as a two-piston calliper for the single 220mm disc at the rear.

MV Agusta have also gone premium for the suspension, which has resulted in the Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro receiving suspension from Ohlins. 

For the new Superveloce, Ohlins provide 43mm Nix EC hydraulic USD forks which feature electronic adjustability. At the rear, there is an Ohlins EC TTX shock absorber, again with electronic adjustability. 

The bikes dimensions guarantee a 845mm seat height, 940mm width, and 2080mm length, while the wheelbase is 1,415mm. Additionally, the fuel tank can hold 16 litres.

The following components on the MV Agusta Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro are made from carbon fibre:

  • Front fairing cover and support - Front fairing LH/RH
  • Aerodynamic wing LH/RH - Side fairing LH/RH
  • Air intake LH / RH - Belly pan rear spoiler - Airbox
  • cover - Fuel tank cover LH/RH - Tail cover LH/RH
  • Underseat cover - Passenger seat cover
  • Headlight support cover - Air intake cover LH/RH
  • Oil radiator protection LH/RH - Radiator cover
  • Exhaust silencer protection LH/RH - Brake disc
  • cover LH/RH - Front mudguard

2023 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR/RS

There are two models for the 2023 Brutale 1000 range from MV Agusta, with the RR and RS both receiving updates for the new model year.

Specifically, MV counts 23 “significant” updates for the 2023 versions of both bikes, with those spread across the engine (the same 208 horsepower unit as in the Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro), chassis, and electronics.

On the engine side, there is a new balanceshaft, while the speed of the crankshaft is increased to reduce vibrations by 54%, according to MV. 

There is also a new seat, with dual-density padding, while electronically the electronic throttle has been updated to include negative throttle, which MV says makes for a more “natural feeling.” There have also been updates “in terms of torque, traction, and launch control management,” MV says. 

Differences between the two bikes come in the form of chassis components, such as carbon fibre pieces for the RR, which also receives TiN treated Ohlins 43mm Nix forks, whereas those on the RS come from Marzocchi. 

There are also new colours, with “Nardo Grey (Gloss)/Matt Metallic Dark Grey” for the RS, and “Matt Hedonist Red/Matt Metallic Carbon Black” for the RR. 

2023 MV Agusta Ampelio

Finally, we come to MV Agusta’s future, or at least a part of it. In 2023, it is in the form of the Ampelio, a new electric scooter. 

The Ampelio has been in development for more than two years, and MV has partnered with established electric manufacturer Kymco in order to bring the Ampelio to production. 

The base of the Ampelio is the Kymco S7, and the two even shares the same dual 1.7kWh swappable Ionex batteries. 

That makes the Ampelio good for 85km, while the nominal power output is 4.1kW from the electric motor, which can also produce a peak output of 7.2kW. 

Dry, the Ampelio weighs 95kg, while on the kerb with both batteries beneath the seat that rises to 121kg.

“The presence of batteries does not affect cargo capacity,” MV says, “which allows for the storage of a flip up helmet.”

There are two riding modes, “Normal” and “Sport”, and keyless operation, while it is currently being evaluated whether the scooter would benefit more from ABS or CBS.
