MV Agusta developing 500cc and 1000cc adventure motorcycles

MV Agusta is working on the development of two new adventure motorcycles. This was confirmed by Timur Sardarov, the CEO of MV Agusta in a recent interview with Bennetts. These two new models will see the Italian marque entering the lucrative and popular adventure motorcycle segment.

Competition in the adventure motorcycle segment is now hotter than ever before. Nearly all major motorcycle manufacturers across the globe are looking to get into the segment which keeps growing with every passing day. MV Agusta on the other hand has been a brand that has stayed away from the segment until now.

The Italian motorcycle manufacturer has products in the sport, supersport, street/roadsters, and touring segments. The motorcycles made by MV Agusta are exotics in their own right and they continue to impress motorcyclists across the world. Now, the legendary MV Agusta name looks set to make a mark in the adventure segment as well.

Timur Sardarov, the CEO of MV Agusta recently revealed in an interview that the brand is looking to get into the adventure segment. He revealed that MV Agusta is developing electric propulsion systems for the long-term future while in the short-term future, the company’s focus would be adventure.

He went on to say that two adventure motorcycles would be developed and launched. One would slot in the 500cc segment while the other would compete in the 1,000cc segment. This would give MV Agusta the leverage it needs to attract a wider range of buyers. 

The MV Agusta 500cc adventure model would compete with the likes of the Honda CB500X, the upcoming KTM Adventure 490, the upcoming Triumph 660cc Adventure bike and the Benelli TRK 502. The MV Agusta 1000cc adventure bike on the other hand would compete with the likes of the Triumph Tiger 900, Ducati Multistrada 950, etc. More details of the new motorcycles are expected to surface in the coming months, so stay tuned.
