2014 MV Agusta F3 800: MD Test

On paper, the 2014 MV F3 800 is a spectacular machine. The specifications every bit as gorgeous as the bike in the flesh. Promising 600 class with open class the new MV triple makes a claimed 148 hp at the at 13,000 rpm from a displacement of

Inside the cases that the 675cc F3, the 800 carries the same but added …. This the 800 nearly 20 additional hp over the healthy 675, and gobs torque.

In our announcement of the F3 800, we several studio photos you can refer back to. In this we have photos from the test we conducted two days ago at Raceway in Southern California. On at Chuckwalla was MD test rider Aquino (currently racing for WD-40/GR Motorsports ), who has years of racing 600s both in the States and Europe.

With the narrow engine cases as the and essentially the same dry weight of 381 the F3 800 promises to be a very nimble MV’s use of a reverse rotation of the shaft effectively cancels of the inertia created by the wheel which further reduces the necessary to change direction.

The F3 800 is loaded with top shelf and electronic assist mechanisms. The forks measure 43 mm in diameter and are adjustable for spring preload, as as compression and rebound damping. The shock features a separate reservoir, and is also fully for preload, compression and rebound.

The are a fantastic spec, including the Brembo monobloc, radially-mounted calipers and 320 mm discs, controlled by a radial master cylinder. and braking forces are transferred Pirelli Diablo Rosso tires (including a rear-sized For our track testing, Pirelli DOT tires were fitted.

The package is about as sophisticated as you can on a showroom floor. MV calls the MVICS (Motor and Vehicle Control System) and, to MV, the ride-by-wire throttle “makes it for the ideal throttle body to be defined at any moment in time, so it is not on the angular rotation of the twist Utilizing an ECU from Eldor to Ferrari and Lamborghini, among MV claims it has made the throttle completely linear with to torque creation, i.e.

50% throttle results in 50% of the torque from the engine at the current rpm the current load factors. maps are available for rider in the MVICS system, including Standard, Rain and Custom. the Custom setting, the rider can tune several variables to his including but not limited to throttle and engine braking level.

adjusted both of these to great effect on the track about that later).

control is also available, of and can be set at any one of 8 levels (from least to most intrusive), as well as off entirely. In 3 of the 4 maps, the rider can any one of the TC settings, while in Rain the TC setting defaults to level 8.

are aided by an electronic ignition and corner entry benefits a slipper clutch. For added (given the added torque), the F3 800 has an additional 2 plates in comparison the F3 675.

MV Agusta readily admits in the past, it has struggled somewhat fuel injection mapping, that has become increasingly complicated as ECUs have more sophisticated. We remember Triumph having the same for several years before them out. MV says it has extremely hard at fine-tuning the available on the F3 800, and continues to maps to “state-of-the-art” from

During our track testing, it was clear MV’s claim the F3 800 changes directions easily was Despite all the added power and together with the heavier the F3 800 changes direction as easily as a 600 on the In fact, the bike feels than the claimed 381 pounds as a result of the counter-rotating crank uniquely employed by MV in its production

Very impressive stuff!

with the nimble handling, the F3 800 big power in a smooth, linear Our test rider is used to tuned race 600s, and he peak power was similar the stock F3, while torque a substantial increase over the class machines.

Three cylinder engines can some of the best traits both twins and in-line and the F3 800 is no exception. We were able to corners a gear higher peaky 600s, and drive through a broad powerband through to the 13,000 rpm power A very flexible motor is deceptive in its smoothness and linearity, but quick.

Back to the subject of The F3 800 feels extremely light and allowing you to put it anywhere you like on the but at the same time offers stability. It also allows you to the line you select through corners.

The brakes provide power and feel, on par with set-up race brakes. is firm and damped well for use, feeling well-balanced

MV Agusta seems to have any problems with abrupt response found on some of its models. Using the custom feature, we were able to in a very smooth, progressive delivery coming out of corners at a lean angle. Exactly you need from a race or a track day weapon.

After becoming comfortable on the Tommy turned off the traction and played with some big slides coming out of slower … reporting that the throttle and response made these easy to control, due to their nature.

The electronically controlled shifter worked well though the ignition cuts a bit longer than necessary. We had no with the transmission while either up or down. With the map feature, we were able to engine braking to provide control, and maintain rear traction, during aggressive entries.

This is a very feature for the track.

After some minor suspension tire pressure adjustments and the Custom map, it was hard to the performance of the MV Agusta F3 800 on a race This is probably the best stock, street legal we have yet tested on a race

Criticisms are few and minor. The footpegs are a bit and the wind screen offers a view when tucked in at the track.

MV Agusta is a relatively small for sure, with only 212 Its bike line-up has expanded however, from 3 models in to 14 models for 2014. MV sales grown 130% during the period, despite a significant in the total, relevant motorcycle these past few years.

so much going on, it seems MV nevertheless has the resources to sweat the The F3 800 is an excellent motorcycle, and given its exclusivity and components, is reasonably in the United States at an MSRP of Visit MV Agusta’s web site for information.
