2023 MV Agusta Lucky Explorer 5.5 Adventure Motorcycle Review

The idea behind the Lucky Explorer extends far beyond what the latest models suggest. It is a metaphorical receptacle for the feelings, memories, and everything that Schiranna production had to offer riders in the 1980s and 90s. It is poised to take devotees into the future by fusing the offline world with the online potential provided by social media. The concept calls for two all-new motorcycles, the 9.5 and the 5.5, which will debut in February 2023 as a kid’s adventure inspired by Elephant’s history. Despite being a mid-sized bike, it looks enormous. It’s built for commuters but could also appeal to European riders looking for excitement.

Suddenly, they made our dreams come true. In the 1980s, thanks to Paris-Dakar, we discovered that driving did not stop at the end of the asphalt. The gates of infinity opened on two wheels. We’ve learned that we can test the limits of ourselves and our bikes, cover thousands of kilometers on nothing, find our way using a road book with an elastic, and half the time. You can fix an engine at night with your bare hands.

We have integrated it all. And today, we are giving it a new life—two models to bring back the exploration spirit that defines a bygone era. And restore our freedom on regular roadways.

You can ride on that promise today. One option available to you is a bike with an extended range. Or a friendly, nearby motorcycle. Both of their pasts fuel your wanderlust. And a gift that asks you to look to the horizon. All of them have a logo that evokes the memory of outstanding achievements. The 5.5 and 9.5 models, once the unchallenged queens of Eicma 2021, are now ready to tell a new, exciting story. They can now fill the pages of newspapers around the world. Put on your helmet and claim your freedom now.
