MV F3 675 Test

Shortly before his passing from … in at age 64, Claudio Castiglioni’s last at his beloved company was to initiate of the 675cc three-cylinder engine to power a new class of MV Agusta.

Not did he get his dream project started, I we can safely say he would be very with the final result.

The MV F3 675′s gestation was not an easy MV sunk some $25 million the development of an entirely new engine echoes the racebikes that Agostini rode to six consecutive titles decades ago.

the large chunk of cash, the ambitious project must been fueled by pure because the logical answer to an level MV Agusta would have been a downsized of the superb four-cylinder motor currently powers the F4.

But, no, with 10 of the company’s 37 Championships attributed to triples, MV glorious and incomparable history a three-cylinder motor, and the clean-sheet produced an incredibly compact, oversquare motor (more so the Triumph Daytona 675 powerplant), class-leading power. The twist, is the counter-rotating crankshaft that the in-house team of engineers up with. A crankshaft that backward is something we have seen on Yamaha’s M1 MotoGP

A sophisticated electronics package the all-new MVICS (Motor Integrated Control System) engine management. Our test was on MV’s fourth version of the map, which can be downloaded to all F3s at no to the owners. On earlier versions, the wasn’t quite spot-on, for somewhat jerky transitions coming back on the gas.

As is de on exotics these days, the F3 with a choice of fueling for changeable conditions. Pressing the button once the engine is will cycle through the maps—Sport, Custom, Normal, and Рwith the custom mode the rider to independently adjust response, maximum power speed of engine response, and braking, depending on his preference.

Eight levels of traction are also part of the F3′s and a rubber covered toggle on the left bar allows adjustable on the fly. Bank-angle and rear-wheel sensors – optional from MV Special Parts – îmanage the and wheelies, clearly indicating the of MV’s World Supersport aspirations.

Sitting astride the F3, I was surprised by the roomy cockpit and low height, which make the quite comfortable. The rearset are not too high and, unlike the exhaust system that with your right heel when turning in, the gorgeous triple exhaust don’t hamper your at all.

The instruments are all contained in the one pod and it works well enough, but the skinny digits atop the rev counter are impossible to read. you are intimately familiar with the you will only have a idea of what the engine is at. Fortunately, the cute little Traction Control indicator, position indicator, and speedometer are all readable.

The engine? It is a gem. Pulling first gear is so tall some serious clutch is needed to get going without a

Opening the throttle hard produces brisk, if not actually acceleration. The gearbox itself is and works well, but the lever has a long throw to it. This the clutch-free MV Agusta EAS (Electronically Shift) a welcome option, as the shifter throw can be a little and requires a deliberate foot

So far, so good.

All seems with the world of the F3 – until you hit rpm (as close as I can tell) – when the triple hits its torque of 52 ft./lbs. and suddenly realizes its is on fire. Rev-limited at an amazing rpm (high for a triple) thanks to a 45.9mm …, the rushing at ten grand rips the F3 along the until the claimed peak of 126 horses is reached at 14,400

Because of this wide of power, the F3 suddenly becomes serious fun on a fast road (or The responsive engine definitely but it is not overly intrusive. There is an intake roar that is a bit louder than the sound the pipes, and that just to the impression of warp speed

At a featherweight 381 pounds (claimed, the F3 675 is one of the lightest machines in its class, and the crankshaft works very at neutralizing some of the wheels’ forces. Handling is nimble in the and at the same time it is neutral and with a secure feel in very fast corners at lean angle.

With a developed in World Superbike the Pirelli Diablo Rosso tires offer flawless, feedback. With the rear sporting three compound zones – center rib, out from there, and then edges – the Diablo Rosso are suitable for track and street. changes are accomplished easily, and the end feels planted and confidence-inspiring, when hard on the brakes.

The front brake system is a of premium components. On the right there is a radially mounted master cylinder that radially mounted Brembos twin floating 320mm A standard two-piston Brembo slows a solid-mounted 220mm in the rear.

Rear-wheel chatter is thanks to MV’s electronic braking technology. Eschewing the common mechanical slipper the F3′s engine management opens the throttle butterflies a tad when back-torque at the rear be a problem. Choosing between and Normal settings, I used the on the street and never encountered a – the system works well.

All considered, the F3 675 is an adrenaline-junkie’s machine fun and incredibly rewarding to ride If you live above 10,000 rpm for any period – which is very to do – you will fall in love the F3.

This motorcycle has been designed and executed and, a rider’s perspective, the MV Agusta F3 675 is a experience that gives of feedback. Because of that, it is an machine to ride, and its prodigious output feels way more than any middleweight has a right to MV Agusta has honored Castiglioni’s brilliantly.
