MV Agusta is shaking up its own formula these days. Not too long ago we found ourselves in Northern Italy riding a prototype adventure bike that will soon be known as the Lucky Explorer 9.5. When it debuts in 2023, it will become the brand’s first-ever production adventure machine.
The fun doesn’t stop there; MV is also dipping its toes into the emobility segment with two new Lucky Explorer Project bicycles, the E-Enduro and the E-Gravel.
MV’s Lucky Explorer Project is the brand’s way of honoring its off-road racing past, particularly its participation in the Paris-Dakar races. During the initial announcement of the program, MV revealed its adventure motorcycle ambitions and its for-now partial revival of the Cagiva name in the CRC badging on both the 5.5 and the 9.5.
The ebikes share a similar livery as those previously revealed adventure machines, and both are designed to handle off-road riding scenarios.
The E-Enduro is the more robust off-road bike of the two, carrying a Bosch Performance Line CX engine and Bosch PowerTube 625/750Wh battery. It features a carbon frame, Fox fork, shock, and spring and rolls on Vittoria Mazza 29-inch tires.
The E-Gravel is more road-focused, but still able to tackle a light stint off-road thanks to its Pirelli Cintuarto Gravel tires. It makes use of a Mahle X20 engine and a 350Wh battery. It also comes with a carbon frame and Fox fork.
There is as yet no information on when these bikes will be available, nor is there any mention of price.
