What a departure for MV.

It looks great with that diamond shaped F4 inspired headlight.
Has the de tuned 3 cylinder engine from the F3 and is supposed to be the lightest bike in its category. Comes with the usual goodies.

I hope the typical MV niggles of uneven fueling and engine mapping is sorted.
Having said that, MV's are really special bikes, given the small scale of the Italian manufacturer with a very interesting history. Some would argue an MV is even more special that a Ducati or an Aprilia and I concur.

(PS - The F4 of 2010 in red and silver was an image that still stands fresh in my mind about what beauty is on two wheels.)

I will be surprised if they manage to sell even 5 or 10 of these in India. I can still understand people overpaying for MV supersports or Brutale's which are stunning looking and collector's items ... but this is ugly looking and you better not tour given MV's after sale support.

MV may not have a very confidence inspiring support base in India, but IMO this looks so much better than that ugly platypus looking Multistrada.

A piece or two if any will find takers for this here.

An unusual brand to enter the adv / touring segment dominated by tiger 800, GS & the Multistrada. When the brand which signifies luxury and beauty decides to get dusty and a bit dirty. Let's see how the market welcomes it. One interesting feature of the turismo veloce 800 lusso is the SCS (Smart Clutch System). Rekluse makes it for them, rekluse is a brand familiar to atleast some Harley owners who have been in a bad bad bad traffic jam. From what I've read, lusso comes with quickshifter too. SCS prevents the bike from stalling even when you don't engage clutch wen slowing or stopping, also SCS shifts gear down if necessary too. Totally convenient tech IMHO. The big question is, is the lusso version of the bike available for sale in India 😀.
And as for the looks, Multistrada may look like a platypus and a Hayabusa may look like Dairy Cattle. It's all subjective. Hope those who buy a bike, enjoy it 😊

@Veelubai - That's a first time in over 17 years of riding a Hayabusa, first the Gen 1 and now a Gen 2 and being part of almost all major Hayabusa forums around the globe, I ve heard someone call it a Dairy Cattle.

Its no looker everyone knows that, but a 186 mph daily cattle is new even to me.

Ouch that hurt.

More than the looks After sales support would be the main ingredient of MV's survival.

I don't feel it looks special like most other MV bikes do! That said - it is still a good looking machine (Considering the fact that adventure tourers have never won beauty pageants!).

However, the price tag of 18.99 lakhs raises a big question mark! Is it worth the looks alone? Don't think so! Is it a brilliant machine to ride otherwise?

From what I ve read, the over all reviews are positive. This is more an on road bike than off.

Yes its down on power compared to the competition but is also much lighter and narrower. Easy to put the power down and has greater agility over the bends. The de tuned engine is specially cohesive with the nature and purpose of the bike.

There are the usual positives of good Brembo brakes, exceptional seat comfort and wind protection , functional rider electronic aides. Has goodies as well like heated grips, garmin gps , auto lights, DRL's etc.

Its an MV. They make special bikes. Where they lack is with their sparse dealer network and reliability can sometimes be off.

No, only the standard variant.

Internationally, the Turismo is available in four variants – Standard, 800 Lusso, Lusso SCS and a limited-edition RC SCS. For now, we’ll only have the standard variant on sale here.

MV's after sales support is close to non-existent even in Europe. When i was trying to buy some parts from a MV dealer in Netherlands for a friend's F3 - i was told clearly that there is no guaranteed lead time for MV orders. It can take anywhere between 3 days to 3 months to 1 year depending on the mood of ppl at MV factory. Less said about the situation in India the better.

MV will find it very hard to sell anything in India. More than the product themselves, its the visibility and the presence that matters to prospective customers here.
I doubt if MV even has the resources to spread to so many countries and carry operations. Their dealer network even in UK is scarce at best.

If the "product" has to wait 6 months for spare parts after full payment ... and even then get refurbished parts ..... i dont know whether even a dealership in every nook and corner can manage to sell MV bikes.

@ ethan ~ I have no idea in what context you are talking. Maybe you could elucidate.

And if it has something to do with spare parts and dealer delay, source your own parts. Why depend on the dealer.

Utterly useless product. The news articles says there are people who will fork out north of 22lakhs (Maharashtra) to own piece of Italian beauty.
I am wondering what is it's selling point, Quickshifter ? And as is common knowledge they have a non-existent service network.

Rest in Peace is all that I can say about this ....
