This is one announcement we’ve been waiting for some time. MV Agusta have launched their two new adventure bikes; the more mid sized and road ready 5.5, and the more powerful and off road ready 9.5.
According to MV Agusta:
You’ll discover that some dreams are measured in cubic centimetres, and that adventures don’t always depend on the distance travelled.
Today you can get in the saddle on a promise, whichever you prefer. You can choose a bike that is made to go far. You see it and you feel the wind, and the sand. Or a closer, friendly bike.
Both have a past that cultivated your desire to travel. And a present that cries out to you to take on the next horizon.
The 9.5 represents the contemporary interpretation of the myth of great desert racing, a unique bike for driving emotions, ease of approach, performance and charm with a strong off-road attitude.
