Following in the footsteps of the strikingly sexy F4 supersport, MV Agusta introduces the new F3, a svelte middleweight powered by an inline triple of 675 cc. The engine uses an unusual, counter-rotating crankshaft, and reported output is about 135 hp.
For the first time on one of its motorcycles, MV has incorporated ride-by-wire throttle control into the F3, which also features traction control, a first for a middleweight sport bike. The bike’s electronics also include multiple engine maps for various riding conditions.
The frame is a steel-trellis/forged aluminum hybrid, onto which is bolted a Marzocchi inverted fork and Sachs shock absorber, both of which are fully adjustable. Front brakes are Brembo radial calipers with a Nissin master cylinder.
An unusual, yet highly stylish triple-barrel exhaust exits the right side of the bike.
Other details are scarce at the moment, but we thought you’d like to at least feast your eyes on this beauty.
