MV Agusta has released the first official figures and pictures of the upcoming F3 675, the new 3 cylinder motorcycle that will take on the currently not-so-wealthy 600 supersport market. The F3 675 is the first model to use the brand new MVICS - Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System - a revolutionary electronic package made of four pre-set engine maps plus one that can be customized by the owner working along with F3′s eight different levels of traction control. The new electronics, coupled with an advanced ride-by-wire throttle technology, are surely one of the highlights of this outstanding machine.
The core of the bike is obviously its 675cc in line three-cylinder engine (featuring 79 mm bore and 45.9 mm stroke) that delivers 126 hp at 14,500 rpm and maximum torque of 71 Nm at 10,600 rpm, redlining at 15,000 rpm. Besides, it is also the first motorcycle of this category adopting the counter-rotating crankshaft, a solution that should provide the bike with better balance and handling. Other remarkable mechanical features include titanium valves, 50mm throttle bodies and dual fuel injectors for each cylinder.
MV Agusta F3 675 also boasts fully-adjustable Marzocchi 43mm front forks, Sachs rear shock, super-light wheels, Brembo’s radial calipers and 320mm front discs mated to Nissin radial master cylinder, while its 1.38 meter wheelbase and a 173 kg weight are also important factors in making this bike one of the most eagerly awaited newcomers of its category. As usual, a ‘Serie Oro’ edition will anticipate the standard model’s debut on the market, with the former becoming available at MV Agusta’s dealerships this coming December and the latter hitting the showrooms the following month.
