Finally ! A year after its first public appearance in, the sculptural MV Agusta F3 675 is about to land in early 2012! Just before EICMA 2011, Meccanica Verghera Agusta has decided to end the looonngue campaign for its expected 675 cc Supersport (read in particular) by revealing all its technical characteristics..

The "pazionne" in the engine !

First observation: if the bride is still as beautiful (the purity of the lines borders on perfection and these three little exhaust outlets are close to her!), The dowry is ultimately less important than expected. Thus, instead of the 144 hp announced at the end of 2010 (read), then the "more than 135 hp" promised at the start of 2011 (read), the F3 675 retains "only" 128 at 14,500 rpm in its final version. !

What a curious coincidence: this power corresponds exactly to that of a certain Triumph Daytona 675 (read our), so far the only Supersport powered by a three-cylinder in-line !

Well born, the English also retains a small advantage in terms of torque with 73 Nm against 71 Nm for the F3, whose "3-legged" undoubtedly suffers from its more "super-square" design and in particular its extremely short stroke (45.9 mm against 52.3 mm on the Dayto). Equipped with titanium valves, the engine of the F3 675 is visibly designed to take the maximum revolutions / minute: 15,000 rpm at the switch against 13,900 for the Triumph ! 

In addition, while MV Agusta evoked a dry weight content "just under the bar of 170 kg" at the EICMA 2010, the beauty of Varese finally accuses 173 on the scale (still dry), that is to say nine more than than the British slender which displays 162 kg dry (and 185 kg all full).

Concretely, the one that MV Agusta qualifies as "new benchmark in the Supersport category" weighs heavier and would not be more efficient, mechanically speaking, than the Daytona 675. To believe that the Italians would have been slightly intoxicated during the development of the F3 , before being overtaken by the economic and technical compromises required for the marketing of a production motorcycle…

Competition chassis, Superbike electronics !

And yet, in terms of technological debauchery, the MV Agusta F3 675 arises there! The first production motorcycle to adopt a counter-rotating crankshaft – a device that reduces engine inertia used by the Yamaha M1 from Moto GP – it is also the first Supersport to carry a whole battery of electronic steering aids..

Called MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System), the "electronic brain" of the transalpine sports car manages the six injectors (yes: two per cylinder!) Via a wireless Ride-by-wire accelerator, as on the Yamaha R6.

The MVICS also offers a choice of five pilot injections maps: four pre-programmed and one configurable as desired. To date, in the SSP category, only the models are equipped with selectable mapping on the handlebars (A and B via the S-DMS).

Even stronger: the MV Agusta F3 675 is equipped with a configurable traction control on eight levels! This "electronic crutch" was until now reserved for a few handpicked Superbikes (,,, and) !

And if that is not enough for the "sportivo-geek" that lies dormant in you, know that the sportswoman from Varese can also receive (optional) tilt sensors to provide a little more precise information on this Traction Control. Or a Launch Control (starting assistance system, as on the), a configurable anti-wheeling and a sophisticated shifter called MV Agusta EAS (Electronically Assisted Shift).

Ultra compact (1380 mm wheelbase against 1395 mm for the Daytona), the MV Agusta F3 675 finally exhibits an extremely sharp chassis, as the engineers at Varese know how to design (MV Agusta nevertheless claims 37 constructor titles in Grand Prix)..

Built around a rigid tubular steel frame terminated by aluminum frames, the Italian Supersport has a tuned cycle part: fully adjustable 43 mm Marzocchi inverted fork, Sachs shock absorber adjustable up to compression speeds (slow and fast), single swingarm and aluminum rims. Top gear !

Available in January 2012

To curb its ardor, the F3 can count on double 320 mm front discs clamped by radial Brembo four-piston calipers with radial mounting. A formidable device operated by a master cylinder (also radial mounted) from the Japanese manufacturer Nissin.

A less prestigious choice for a pure Italian, but which allows MV to keep the price down to an accessible level.

Announced at 11,999 euros (Italian price) for January 2012, the standard F3 remains however more expensive than its direct rival, the Daytona 675 (11,590 euros including tax in the).

Finally, lovers of exclusivity and goldsmith’s pieces rest assured: MV Agusta has already planned to market (in December 2011) a limited series "Oro" of its sports car (read): a fully equipped F3 in Ohlins and Brembo and covered with carbon and alcantara sold … € 25,000 !
