MV Agusta’s Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro was unveiled in show-bike form back in late 2022 at EICMA. Now, with the Serie Oro limited-edition version scheduled for release in Q3 of 2024, the bike has been type-approved with substantial hints at the full-production model that’s sure to follow.
Australian approval documents include technical details and low-resolution photos showing a black Superveloce 1000 that, while it’s listed as being the limited-edition Serie Oro machine, has all the hallmarks of being the unlimited-production version that will come afterward.The F4 model was discontinued in 2018. The last F4 model was made in 2018.
The documents suggest that the engine is the same 998cc four-cylinder that’s used in the Brutale 1000 and Rush models, with an unchanged 205 hp at 13,000 rpm. The same frame as the Brutale 1000 and Rush will also be used, with a 55.7-inch wheelsbase. The Superveloce 1000, with its retro-inspired fairing is close to a revival of the F4 Superbike, which was discontinued in 2018 after Euro 4 emission rules were implemented across Europe.MV Agusta Brutale.

The fairing is accompanied by the low bars and high pegs, as used on the “RR” version of the Brutale 1000, while the Superveloce’s quad underseat pipes have distinct overtones of the original, Tamburini-designed F4. Documents of approval show that adding bodywork to a Brutale platform always adds weight. The Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro weighs 456 pounds ready-to ride. The same paperwork puts the standard Brutale 1000, the Brutale 1000 RR, and the Rush all at 432 pounds, showing that adding a fairing increases the Superveloce’s mass by 24 pounds. Other specifications include a width of 35.2 inches. This is up from the 32.9 inch standard Brutale and the 31.7 inch Brutale RR or Rush. Since mirrors aren’t usually included in those measurements, that’s likely down to the winglets on either side of the nose.
While the document’s text refers only to the limited-edition Serie Oro version of the Superveloce 1000, there are clues that the included low-res photos actually show a more basic, mass-made variant. Although the Öhlins suspension and Brembo brakes look unchanged from the Serie Oro show bike, the all-black paintwork (or is it bare carbon fiber?) The red and silver style of the Serie Oro has been replaced by a black-and-black paint scheme (or is it bare carbon fiber?) The wheels are standard Brutale 1000 RR 9-spoke instead of the split-spoke five-spoke design seen on the Superveloce 1000 Serie Oro.The show bike’s wheels were unique and stunning. (MV Agusta/)
The seat is finished in what appears to be black suede, instead of the red and black of the Serie Oro. There’s also an extra passenger seat (and footpegs) at the rear, where the showbike had a single, distinctive seat with a rear spoiler. The addition of bar-end mirrors and a license plate bracket mounted on the swingarm is another change. Both were missing from the EICMA 2022 machine.The rear three-quarter view reveals the F4-like exhaust pipes and passenger accommodation. (MV Agusta/)
There are many parts of the body that can be damaged. The following are some of the most effective ways to improve your business. The aero covers on the brake disc carriers in front and the large wings either side of fairing are shared. MV Agusta is keen to remind you that, while Ducati led the way in adopting wings for racebikes today, MV had very similar winglets as early as 1972 on its 500/4 racer, which was campaigned Phil Read.
