MV Agusta has enjoyed success after launching its new triple, the F3 675. Not it ups the ante the new F3 800. Welcome the super with 148 horsepower and the chassis of a

I’m at Misano World Circuit Simoncelli, renamed after the hero who was fatally injured at the circuit in 2012 (The circuit was named after because he is from the area). A matte-black F3 800 is handed to me for my first and off I go. After a couple of laps up I’m satisfied that grip are as good as they’re ever to get at Misano and it’s full on TC level two and Sport mode.

incredibly easy to get up to speed as the F3 800 is so light and nimble allowing a great leeway.

We had a chance to flog this around the Misano World Marco Simoncelli.

On the back the EAS (electronically Assisted Shift) me trouble kicking up from to fourth gear each lap and I to resort to pulling in the clutch the old way to shift from third to I chose a different F3 800 for my next and on this specimen there’s no at all, suggesting this is an issue more than else.

Getting properly up to I exit turn six maxing gear and shifting up to fourth a headshake develops into a old fashioned tank slapper. I thought and reduced speed and shifted to fourth on my next There is no steering damper on the F3 800 and if you one it’s at an extra cost.

The new 798cc Triple makes all the noises and on full song nothing short of full where the soundtrack is concerned. The new of the 800 produces a claimed 148 horsepower at rpm and 88 Nm at 10,600 rpm. To achieve impressive figure MV Agusta added a new piston with …, new counter-rotating crankshaft and new injection with 15% more

Compression is also up to 13.3:1 13.0:1.

With 148 horsepower on the F3 800 sings a beautiful tune it’s opened up.

MV showed us a comparing the 675 to the 800, giving of a 30-horsepower boost in the 6000 to range. Out on the circuit this boost is felt particularly in the exits where the F3 800 accelerates like a literbike than a 675. It’s that old concept of taking the best of worlds to create a proper machine.

MV Agusta has taken out pretty the same effect per cylinder in the F3 800 as in the F4 RR but in a lighter more responsive

Through the corners is where the F3 800 and it has a very forgiving chassis comes alive with feel with the 800 powerplant. The F4 mind-blowing top end is great, but in the F3 800 you have enough also for an experienced with greater ease of In turn this could mean more satisfying on an F3 800 than an F4 RR.

As such, the F3 800 is a great which should appeal to current F3 675 and F4 owners.

The Marzocchi USD fork and Sachs rear is the standard quality MV Agusta setup, and the F3 800 gets these tweaked for the extra performance of the 800 The F3 800 really isn’t wheelie and with such a short this speaks well of the It’s easy enough to one but they don’t come when circulating at speed.

With Brembo Monobloc (F3 675 doesn’t have these) and 173 claimed kilos (381 dry) to stop, braking physical. Perfect conditions at coupled with very Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa (120/70-17 and 180/55-17) enables late braking. Stopping on the F3 800 is as good as it gets.

Helping the further are electronic traction and riding modes. The eight-stage-plus-off control also features a mode which can be tuned in for you and for a particular circuit. You can also between different levels riding, but with gloves on I MV Agustas buttons under a rubber cover too awkward to use riding.

I used level 1 on the TC most of the and Level 2 with a new rear and a few laps with TC off. 1 worked best, and off was fun, but 2 might just be best the tyres are starting to go. I found the map to be a tad too aggressive as I preferred first in two corners where you can also use

I preferred the Normal mode then I could chose to be when I wanted it and you don’t lose anything because the speed can be kept high using the absolute top end of the engine.

power on the MV Agusta F3 800 is superb.

The MV F3 800 is priced competitively. The version I with EAS is priced at £13,990 in which is only £1,800 than the 675. It’s worth the premium because the F3 800 can with the big boys.


It is very easy for me to the F3 800 because of the appeal of big power in a bike. Trouble with the and the lack of a steering damper it down a bit but not enough for me not to put it up there my top three or four most sportbikes regardless of capacity. Yet good reason to go Triple.
