EICMA 2010: MV Agusta reveals F3 powered by 675cc three-cylinder


MV Agusta unveiled the 675cc F3 earlier this week at EICMA. It’s powered by an inline three-cylinder engine and features an exhaust system with a triple-pipe side-exit muffler.

The engine has a counter-rotating crankshaft, which MV Agusta claims is a first for a production supersport engine.

The company says the bike marks another milestone: “For the first time on an MV (and in the middleweight supersport category), there is ride-by-wire with multi-maps that optimize the power output in all riding conditions.” The company has also incorporated its MV TC traction control into the engine control system.

As with all previous MVs, the frame design incorporates a mix of steel tubing and aluminum side plates wrapped around the compact engine, “offering a level of compactness never before seen on a supersport motorcycle.”

The F3 features a long single-sided swingarm, a fully adjustable Marzocchi front fork, and a Sachs rear shock. The front brake system consists of a Nissin radial master cylinder and Brembo radial calipers and discs.
