For many motorcycle enthusiasts, MV Agusta is considered one of the rarest, most sought after motorcycle brands in the industry. The legendary motorcycle manufacturer finds its roots deep in the history of motorcycle racing, and has always found its center in the perfect marriage between outright performance and pure beauty. It truly is no wonder then, that MV Agusta’s motorcycles are among the most beautiful machines to ever hit the streets.
With Motorcycle Art at the forefront of MV Agusta’s existence, the company delves not only into the physical and aesthetic aspects of motorcycles. Indeed, there is a whole different level of art when it comes to overall performance—and MV Agusta is no slouch here, either. With some of the most technologically advanced motorcycles the world has seen, this Italian motorcycle maker continues to reinvent itself, setting the bar even higher when it comes to performance-oriented motorcycles. That being said, MV Agusta has just launched the latest iteration of the F3 supersport bike. Based on the F3 800, the new F3 Rosso packs quite a punch, both in the styling and performance department.
For starters, it’s clear to see that the new F3 Rosso retains its signature full fairing, and all the beautiful curves and edges which have made this bike the stuff of dreams. Its extremely aggressive, race-inspired stance, and classic Italian supersport styling have been even further enhanced by the new, bright racing red color scheme. To compliment the bike’s stunning aesthetics, MV Agusta has redesigned its electronics to feature some of the most technologically advanced equipment currently on offer today. Replacing the bike’s monochrome LCD instrument panel is a full-color TFT unit which doubles as a dashboard for the rider to toggle the bike’s suite of advanced rider aids.
From a performance standpoint, the MV Agusta F3 Rosso continues to feature the legendary 798cc inline-three cylinder motor. Now boasting Euro 5-compliance, a few tweaks have been made to this engine to eke out even more performance. It now gets DLC (diamond-like carbon) treatment for its internals which significantly reduces engine friction and heat. A new set of high-pressure fuel injectors optimizes fueling across the rev range, and slight changes to the exhaust system improve power, torque, and throttle response. The result of all these minute changes translates into one of the most powerful production inline-three cylinder engines the world has ever seen. Pumping out 148 horsepower and 88 Nm of torque, the F3 Rosso boasts liter-class performance in a lightweight, race-focused package.
As far as pricing and availability is concerned, MV Agusta has yet to reveal the official price, or even the actual launch date of the new bike. We can, however, expect this bike to fetch quite a premium over the existing F3 800, which retails for a rather hefty P1,200,000 for the standard version, and P1,500,000 in RC trim. Once we get word from MV Agusta Philippines about the launch of the new F3 Rosso, we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
