11 November 2023: During the ongoing EICMA show in Milan, Italy, MV Agusta introduced the limited edition LXP Orioli Adventure Tourer, intending to produce only 500 units. The official launch details remain undisclosed, but industry experts suggest a potential release by the end of 2025. Recognized for its participation in the Dakar Rally, this motorcycle pays homage to the 1990s rally icon Eddie Orioli, with distinctive branding on each engine tank unit.
MV Agusta’s foray into the Adventure Tourer segment positions the LXP Orioli as a formidable contender, boasting a more robust engine than the Himalayan 450. The motorcycle’s aesthetic appeal is heightened by a full LED lighting setup, including DRL, a LED handlebar, and striking design elements like a muscular fuel tank, split-style sheet, and a tall wind visor.
Equipped with modern features, the MV Agusta LXP Orioli incorporates Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity, call and SMS alerts, email notifications, and a 7-inch fully digital TFT display. The bike also integrates a riding app offering Mobisat geolocation, an anti-theft system, and navigation capabilities. Noteworthy features include four riding modes, five traction control settings, and a raincoat for versatile performance in various terrains.
Powering the Adventure Tourer is a 931cc DOHC liquid-cooled engine, delivering a robust 122bhp at 10,000 rpm and peak torque of 102Nm at 7,000 rpm. The suspension system features a 48mm trellis frame with upside-down forks at the front and a link-actuated gas-charged rear shock absorber. Braking duties are managed by a 320mm Brembo Stylema four-piston disc brake at the front and a 265mm single disc brake with two-piston callipers at the rear. Safety features include traction control, a six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU), ride by wire, dual-channel ABS, and anti-lock braking system.
