2022 MV Agusta Superveloce AGO Sports Motorcycle – Features and Specs
AGO INTRODUCES… AGO!
Before the Grand Prix in Misano, motorcycle great Giacomo Agostini and Simone Corse will ride the new limited-series MV Agusta Superveloce AGO for a ceremonial lap.
Varese, Schiranna, October 21, 2021 – The new limited series Superveloce AGO, a model honoring Giacomo Agostini, a 15-time World Champion and legendary rider in the MotoGP, is being introduced by MV Agusta. This coming Saturday, October 23, in conjunction with the Nolan Made in Italy and Emilia Romagna Magnificent Prix, it will make its formal premiere grandly.
Agostini will ride the Superveloce that bears his name for a historic parade lap while donning his racing gear again. Simone Corsi, a Moto2 rider for MV Agusta Forward Racing, will accompany him on his F2, which will have the same livery as Ago’s. To honor Giacomo’s racing heritage and the new Superveloce, both MV Agustas competing in the Moto2 event will have the same color scheme.
The Superveloce AGO will be created in a small run of 311 pieces, one for each of Agostini’s victories during his career, with the first 15 units devoted to his record-setting World Championship victories.
2022 MV Agusta Superveloce AGO Sports Motorcycle – Top Facts
It is hardly difficult to discuss the bike without first consulting the guy it is named for. Agostini, more often referred to as “Ago” by fans, continues to maintain the record for the most premier-class Gran Prix victories, earning a total of 8 throughout his lengthy career.
All except one of them rode MV Agusta motorcycles. He lived in the two-stroke period, a time before the advent of disc brakes, mono-shocks, ABS, or traction control.
As it is, the Superveloce is a further specialized offering from the already specialized brand for customers looking for a classic bike with functional performance. These very rare bikes—only 311 of them will be produced—represent Agostini’s 311 victories for them in races.
The Superveloce is no slouch either, with close to 150 horsepower, and with all the top-notch equipment the Ago comes with, you won’t have any difficulty keeping up with the pace.
To emulate Yamaha, MV Agusta has become obsessed with its 800cc triple and has installed its CP2 engine in almost all of its motorbike models.
There is nothing wrong with it, even though it lacks the inline-4’s theater and the smaller 675’s rev range. All of their motorcycles, from the fast F3 to the sport tourer Tourisms Vellore, include a power plant that is just right—a Goldilocks sort of powertrain.
It has a quick shifter, a very sophisticated electronics package, eight levels of traction control, and four engine maps.
It has all of these impressive features you would anticipate from a top-of-the-line contemporary sport bike but is housed in a more appropriate design for the 1960s.
Single Sided Swing arm
The design still has excellent artistic value even though it has long ago been abandoned for racing (endurance or otherwise).
All of their motorcycles, including the more utilitarian Tourisms Vellore, incorporate this design element, making it one of their distinguishing characteristics. If there was a nod to form the above function, this is it.
Arrow Exhaust System
For a bike that is already pricey and constrained, it should come standard; not having it as an additional option would be wrong.
It completes a very natural, historically accurate track appearance, and since it is asymmetrical, it turns into the perfect vintage racer.
They have undoubtedly shown in the past that they don’t hold back with their limited edition rims, and they do not let us down on this vintage racer.
The cross-spoked tubeless rims are a lovely addition that pays homage to the racing bikes from the 1960s and 1970s with a similar design.
The top-of-the-line suspension by Ohlins is another feature of this bike that is unquestionably extremely 21st-century.
The mono-shock at the rear and the upside-down front forks both exude style. Both are entirely customizable, allowing you to customize the system to meet your unique requirements.
Exclusive Price Tag
You would have to turn down several excellent motorcycles, including some of the most incredible liter bikes we have ever seen, for around $37,000.
By the way, that is without the custom, even street-legal, asymmetrical Arrow exhaust system. So, if you want one that looks well, be prepared to spend about $40,000.
Tough to blame; this is still a stunning bike, even if you’re not too into the retro/café racer trend that has swept the motorcycle world.
It is a fitting homage to a legendary sporting figure who is sometimes overlooked; if nothing else, his autograph on these limited-edition motorcycles may be priceless.
