The MV Agusta 2022 F3 RR supersport bike has finally been introduced in the local market, and it looks fantastic. The new model has a new design and significant performance improvements, making it even more equipped to tackle any circuit. While the MV Agusta F3 RR's appearance remains unchanged, a closer glance reveals an improved aerodynamics package.
It's the small changes that win races, from the revised windshield and front fender to the side-mounted strakes. There are also new carbon fiber winglets that, according to MV Agusta, can create 17 lbs of downforce at speeds of up to 240 km/h. The engine is a 798cc, 3-cylinder Trepistoni mill with 145 horsepower from the previous generation. The bike comes with a race package, consisting of an ECU map and an Akrapovic exhaust. With the racing package fitted, the F3 RR can produce a whopping 154 horsepower.
MV Agusta has worked with Milan-based e-Novia for its specialized six-axis IMU. The sensor can improve the F3 RR's traction control and wheelie control, but you'll need a decent braking package to keep up with all the performance improvements. The front radial 4-piston Brembo monobloc caliper on the 2022 F3 RR is paired with twin 320mm floating brake discs. A Brembo 2-piston caliper with a single 220mm disc is used at the back.
Continental ABS with rear-wheel lift mitigation and Continental MK100 cornering ABS are also standard on the new F3 RR. On this model, MV Agusta's EAS quickshifter is in its third iteration, so we can expect improved upshifting and downshifting. The chassis of the MV Agusta F3 RR was updated for even more rigidity. Specifically, the frame plates have been strengthened for a sharper, more dynamic feel. In addition, the fancy wheels are 7-percent lighter than the previous model.
An improved suspension system is present in the 2022 F3 RR. For improved riding on and off the track, it has Sachs rear shocks and fully adjustable Marzocchi forks. A 5.5-inch color TFT display with MV Ride App connectivity is another addition to the new model. Additionally, the clutch basket and footpegs have been updated.
Now, for the moment you’ve all been waiting for: the price. How much exactly would a superbike of this caliber cost you? Well, MV Agusta Philippines has priced the new F3 RR at P1,750,000—fairly reasonable considering how much tech this bike has on offer.
