Revealed: The secrets behind MV Agusta's F3

MV Agusta’s all-new three-cylinder F3 is days away from going into full production and looks set to rewrite the class rules as it takes on supersport all-comers with more power, lower weight and more advanced electronics. MCN gained exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the key engineers to discover out how a tiny company like MV Agusta made a bike that looks like...

horses for courses

i test rode a CB1000RR and i'm sure i would have been very pleased with it had i bought one.  but i couldn't believe it had a fireblade engine in it (albeit detuned) and was a bit too plush for my liking.  having then ridden the Brutale, with it's rock-hard suspension and abrupt throttle, and a significantly higher price tag, the brain said to buy the Honda.  but it was an easy decision for me to buy the MV, because i wanted it for all it's character, the sound, the look and the performance.  it may not be the rational decision, but that's why i and many others go for the MV without hesitation.  but it's not for everyone.  but yes, the dealer coverage is a bit sparse - lucky that i live 8 miles from an official dealer.

Deep pockets

Nice looking bike, but my pockets are not deep enough for this, I will stick with my reliable Daytona 675...

Sorely Tempted

I never thought I would buy a middleweight bike again, as I tend to stick to Litre bikes these days.  However, I sold an MV F4 1000 in April, which to be honest, was just too fast for British roads (like a lot of other modern superbikes these days).  Maybe the F3 is the answer.

Like the F3, the F4 also sounded like a bag of nails on idle until it warmed up, but as CosherB says, MVs are bursting with character.  Can't wait to read the roadtests.

Another Triple

An "oversized" triple layout has a lot of potential compared to a more standard sized four.  When the 675 Daytona was introduced I remember seeing an illustration juxtaposing the outline of the 675 triple from the front with that of the 600 four it replaced. The triple was clearly much smaller and lighter than the four and the extra 12.5% displacement made up for it lowe specific  output  (horsepower pre cubic inch. I have heard Triumph went to a triple for its character but it also made a lot of sense engineering wise!

The looks

I would ALMOST buy this thing on looks alone, but if it is all the media is saying it is, then it should be a seriously good option in the middle weight class. Hmmm....

Raising the bar

WOW! what a great looking bike. Great to see the MV August marq going from strength to strength. If a "small" company can do something like this then imagine what the big boys could do. Lets hope it rides as good as it looks cause if it does it will be outstanding.
