The hardware has been subject of significant improvements, thanks to the revision of the Ride By Wire components, for maximum sensitivity, response and improved throttle control. The high quality of the chassis is the result of the integration with the platform MVICS: front forks and a Sachs rear shock absorber are controlled by electronics on the basis of the vehicle’s dynamic parameters. The semi-active suspension provides continuous control of the response, on the basis of the established and reliable ‘Skyhook’ algorithm; revised and tuned by MV to define the Turismo Veloce RC riding characteristics. Standard equipment includes the Garmin navigation system, dedicated twin 30 liter capacity side panniers, center stand, adjustable windshield, heated grips and cruise control.
