Both bikes have a new ‘Chassis Stability Control’ feature that helps maintain balance on rough roads. It uses a semi-active suppression system and Sachs shock absorbers to keep the ride at a smooth level the entire time.

The Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System (MVICS) has been upgraded to version 2.0 with this release. This manages the engine with power modes and precisely measures injection timing and the quantity of fuel continuously at any given time. A GPS navigator has been integrated with a 5” color TFT display, and it comes with a dedicated data management app.


There are four driving modes are available (Touring, Rain, Sport and Custom) with several parameters included such as torque curves and power. The engine brake or the sensitivity of the accelerator is also configurable.

The headlights have bright LEDs embedded in them for a long lasting effect. A cast aluminum frame supports the rider’s seat and holds everything together.

The luxury version also has a red with white pearl coating as well.

Being that these are made by MV Agusta, the 2015 luxury motorcycles cost a pretty penny. The regular model is € 15,990 (~ $20,000 USD) and the luxury version is € 18,990 (~ $23,800 USD). All in all, the price is set at a decent enough level and comes with a good amount of features to make it worth your while, if you have the cash to spend.
