Meet the new MV Agusta Enduro Veloce, the production version of the limited production-run of the LXP Orioli, which was the final avatar of the Lucky Explorer project. But the Enduro Veloce is (hopefully) the final stop.

The Enduro Veloce shares most of its components with the LXP Orioli, including the 931cc inline-triple engine that puts out close to 123 bhp and 10.4 kgm. MV Agusta claims that 85 per cent of that torque is available from as low as 3,000 rpm. The Italian brand has used a 6-speed gearbox with electronically-assisted shifting and a quickshifter.

MV Agusta has deployed a Sachs suspension setup, adjustable at both ends, and with a travel of 210 mm. Dropping the anchor are Brembo Stylema calipers at the front with twin 320-mm discs and a single 265 mm disc at the rear. With a ground clearance of 230 mm and a seat height of 870 mm, it sure means business. And to further cement that, MV Agusta has used Takasago Excel tubeless spoked wheels.

The House of Varese hasn’t skimped on electronics, either. There’s a 6-axis IMU, ride-by-wire and four riding modes — Tour, Off-road and Urban, along with Custom. Being a true-blue ADV, there’s also 8-step traction control, ABS, wheelie control and two levels of engine braking. All of this can be toggled via a 7-inch TFT console.

In terms of design, the Enduro Veloce has the same elements as the LXP Orioli or the Luck Explorer 9.5. It has a heavy front and a rather compact rear section. MV Agusta, however, is confident that this is an aerodynamically efficient bike, and the company has also ensured that not only is maximum air directed towards the engine, but the hot air is diverted away from the rider and the pillion.

The MV Agusta Enduro Veloce is the first product to launch after KTM’s takeover. So, hopefully, there won’t be production woes for the company anymore. That said, it is unlikely that the Enduro Veloce is ever coming to India anytime soon.
