How Much Power Does the 2023 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso SCS Make?

Measuring max power output from MV Agusta’s luxury sport-tourer on the Cycle World dyno.

When news broke in late 2022 that Pierer Mobility (KTM, Husqvarna, and GasGas parent company) entered a partnership with MV Agusta many believed the Italian manufacturer would morph into a rebranded KTM. So far that hasn’t happened. The two major points of emphasis in the partnership with KTM is to support MV Agusta’s supply chain management and acquire its purchasing department in an effort to improve component acquisition from suppliers. In essence, the partnership is an attempt to make MV Agustas more accessible to riders.

As of now, MV Agustas are through and through MV Agustas. There are no orange parts on the Italian bike. MV Agusta currently manufactures a 998cc inline-four (found in the Rush, Brutale 1000 RS, RR, and RR Assen) and inline-triples available in 931cc (as seen in the recently announced LXP Orioli) and 798cc. The 2023 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso SCS utilizes the latter. This 798cc liquid-cooled DOHC four-valves-per-cylinder inline-three features a Rekluse-developed SCS (Smart Clutch System) automatic clutch eliminating the need to use the clutch for starts and stops. The MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso SCS is the first production motorcycle to be fitted with an automatic clutch from the manufacturer. Other equipment includes Sachs semi-active suspension offering 6.3 inches of travel up front and 6.5 inches at the rear, Brembo calipers, steel trellis frame, electronic quickshifter, and adjustable rider aids.

Before hitting our in-house Dynojet 250i dynamometer, the sport-tourer measured 528 pounds on our automotive scale. On the Cycle World dyno, the 2023 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso SCS produced 98.3 hp at 11,010 rpm and 55.3 lb.-ft. of torque at 8,530 rpm. For reference, the 2019 Yamaha Tracer 900 GT produced 104.9 hp at 9,930 rpm and 59.8 lb.-ft. of torque at 8,340 rpm on the same dyno. Recognizing the Yamaha’s 49cc displacement advantage over the MV Agusta, the Turismo Veloce Lusso’s power figures are competitive in its class. The Turismo’s extremely flat torque curve and linear power delivery offer the smooth, tractable power we’ve come to expect out of an inline-triple.
