MV Agusta is no stranger to launching beautiful models in limited production. The Superveloce has been the basis for some of the most coveted editions of the Italian brand in recent times. Now, through its social networks, MV Agusta has announced the creation of a special version of its Superveloce Ago called Tests.

The MV Agusta Ago is one of those limited editions, among many. This model, in particular, was limited to a circulation of 311 pieces and last year won the ‘Most Beautiful Motorcycle of the Show’ award at EICMA in Milan.

Now, the brand is releasing a new teaser with another one-of-a-kind version called Testalarga. This is not a bizarre response to the famous Ducati “Testastretta” engine, but of a unique model based on the limited edition Superveloce Ago. Testalarga is in fact the nickname with which Giacomo Agostini himself called the three-cylinder that he drove in the 1973 500 championship.

The main photo shows the differences from the Superveloce. More detailed shots include what looks like a shot of the bike’s left fairing, where the perforations and a preview of the color scheme stand out. It seems that MV Agusta will use the same colors on the Needle (red, white and gold), but the rims are in light alloy with gold-colored spokes.

Mounted on this specimen is the Arrow exhaust system with three silencers (two on the right and one on the left) reminiscent of the GP versions.

As on the Needle there are parts of the carbon fiber superstructures, on the tank there is the leather belt, but change the quick release fuel cap.

The bike is based on 798 cc inline three cylinderswith counter-rotating crankshaft and compliant with Euro 5 homologation, which delivers on the Superveloce series the power of 147 horsepower at 13,000 rpm and the maximum torque of 9 mkg at 10,000 rpm. The declared weight is 173 kg dry on the S version.

Finally, MV Agusta clarifies that the Testalarga sprints from 0-100 km / h in just 3.05 seconds and 200 km / h in 9 seconds.

All that remains is to wait for the official presentation of this unique bike. Indeed MV Agusta has not yet formalized the date of the presentation, nor the cost with which it will be put up for sale this unique specimen.
