Spy Shot: New MV Agusta Supersport
Monday, January 4, 2010
Could this be Italian motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta's new middleweight sportbike?
Word on the street is Italian motorcycle manufacturer, MV Agusta, is developing an all-new middleweight-class sportbike. The spy pictures surfaced on an MV Agusta internet message board
and show the bike being piloted around Almeria racetrack in southern Spain.
Details are hard to come by, but rumor has it that the bike will be powered by a 675cc Inline-Three engine just like the Triumph Daytona 675. The yet-to-be-named motorcycle will most probably share a fair amount of technology, componetry, as well as styling from the revamped 2010 MV Agusta F4 superbike. Some of the features we could expect to see on this bike are radial-valve cylinder head, variable length intake trumpets and a sophisticated engine management system with perhaps traction control.
Time will tell if the motorcycle will actually make to market, considering that the Italian company is currently on the chopping block by parent company, Harley-Davidson, as part of its “go-forward” business strategy announced last fall.
