MV Agustas surprise the Turismo Leggero
We know whats attached to that wheel
MV AGUSTA jumped on the teaser bandwagon yesterday with a moodily-lit picture of, er, a wheel, in the hopes that we’d all get terribly excited and start speculating about what it might be attached to.
Well, it worked, and we can reveal that it’s 90% sure to be part of a new model going under the name ‘Turismo Leggero’.
How do we know? That’s the only new model name that the firm has registered recently at the European trademark office, and as such it’s pretty certain to be this year’s new machine.
The title does give a bit away. The ‘Turismo’ bit suggests the bike is a variation on the still-not-on-sale Turismo Veloce that was shown this time last year. And the Leggero bit, according to the (n)ever-accurate Google Translate, means ‘Impact’ (yes, we thought it meant ‘light’ too, but apparently that would be ‘leggera’ rather than ‘leggero’ – any Italian-speakers feel free to pitch in with some expert knowledge here…)
So, a lighter, more exotic and more extreme version of the Turismo Veloce, with wire wheels and more of an off-road tack? Makes sense.
Find new bike 'teasers' annoying? Better not look at this from MV
