MV Agusta has revealed the LXP Orioli, a limited-edition adventure tourer, during the EICMA show in Milan, Italy. This bike is limited to 500 units and pays homage to the Lucky Explorer adventure motorcycle, one of the most well-known vehicles to compete in the Dakar Rally. Moreover, the bike's nameplate draws inspiration from the 1990s rallying icon Edi Orioli. As a result, his sign is featured on every unit of the motorcycle's fuel tank. The motorcycle has a 7-inch TFT display for Bluetooth and other capabilities. The bike also offers the Ride App, which provides a Mobisat geolocation anti-theft and navigation systems.
Other notable characteristics of this MV Agusta adventure tourer include four unique riding modes (Urban, Touring, Off-Road, and Custom All-Terrain), five traction control settings (two for on-road use, two for off-road use, and one for rainy conditions), and two-level options of engine braking action. The motorcycle is unlikely to be released here because MV Agusta is not currently operating in India. However, to learn more about this model that has been revealed for the global market, read on.
