MV Agusta Superveloce Alpine Is A Limited-Run Exotic
When a motorcycle manufacturer teams up with an automaker to produce a limited-edition model, the result is often stunning.
The recently-introduced Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is a case in point.
Here’s another good example – the MV Agusta Superveloce Alpine, a by-product of a collaboration between MV Agusta and Alpine. Being Italian and French, these two companies have one thing in common: putting emotional designs above all else.
And that’s not a bad thing. As you can see, the Superveloce Alpine will definitely turn heads with its blue and silver colour scheme, Alcantara saddle and CNC-machined wheels. Small details such as the raised ‘A’ logos, the French and Italian flags and the leather strap on the fuel tank further bridge the gap between the Superveloce and the A110.
Like the ‘standard’ version, the Superveloce Alpine has a beating heart in the form of an inline-three 798 cc engine that pumps out 147 hp at 13,000 rpm and 88 Nm of torque at 10,600 rpm. Sweetening the deal is a Racing Kit, which adds a triple exhaust system (two on the right, one on the left) from Arrow, a dedicated ECU, a seat cowl and a personalised cover.
Production will be limited to just 110 units, with a price of 36,300 euro (RM178,124). Will we be able to see one on our roads? I wouldn’t put too much hope on that.
MV Agusta is joining forces with Alpine, the iconic French manufacturer of racing and sports cars, for the design and production of a 110-units limited series bike inspired by the Alpine A110. The Superveloce was a natural choice for this project as it perfectly embodies the spirit of the A110, sharing the same timeless elegance and offering unique riding emotions on any road.
The collaboration draws on the common passion of both MV Agusta’s and Alpine’s fans for breathtaking design and beautifully engineered products. Both companies also share a glorious history in competition, and an aspiration to create unique emotions for their customers through innovative, forward-looking solutions yet remaining true to their roots.
The Superveloce Alpine will feature MV Agusta’s signature inline 3-cylinder engine, with 147 hp at 13.000 rpm for top speeds of over 240 km/h, and will come with a host of dedicated accessories. The graphic design, the detailing and the accessories will bear the unmistakable mark of Alpine. Just like the sports car icon, the Superveloce Alpine will deliver premium performance yet remaining agile and easy to ride.
Monaco Design Studio, MV Agusta’s spearhead design division for the production of exclusive bespoke models, was involved in the project since the beginning and worked in close contact with its counterpart at Alpine. The result is a stunning bike that is a perfect synthesis of the two brands’ personalities yet with an identity of its own. The blue livery of the Superveloce Alpine exactly matches that of the current A110. The raised “A” logos on the fairings are also reminiscent of the original A110 detailing, as well as the black Alcantara seats with blue stitching and the CNC-machined black rims. To mark the collaboration between two national heritage brands, the French and Italian flags are proudly displayed on either side of the front fender.
