2014 MV Agusta F3 800 – Riding MV’s best bike may be triple.

MV Agusta may have 14 available for 2014, but its triples are the manufacturer’s lifeblood. And the flagship in MV’s triple range is the F3 whose engine is based on the in the F3 675 . The 798cc version shares an 79 .0mm bore but is stroked to 54 .3 45 .9mm), which requires connecting rods to maintain the physical dimensions.

Another key The 800 has a slightly higher compression bumped from the 675’s 13 .0 :1 to Otherwise, the engines are very even sharing identical throttle bodies. Horsepower, has jumped considerably, from the claimed 126 at the crankshaft to 148 for F3 800.

bikes share transmission but the 800 has taller 17 /41 final-drive gearing to the 675’s 16 /43. Also. the slipper clutch has been considerably to handle the additional now sporting 10 discs compared to 8 for the

Looking at the chassis of the two bikes, little separates them. share the hybrid steel-trellis/aluminum frame. The only major is the 800’s use of more powerful four -piston, radial-mount, calipers with larger pistons instead of the 675’s pots.

This. in turn. the spring rates of the 800’s inverted Marzocchi fork to be due to the additional braking power.

Cycle World last the F3 675, it was apparent that MV had a lot of work to do in terms of refining the engine management. Not only did engineers bite off a lot with a complicated electronics package, but also admit to rushing its Fortunately, the Eldor package is to update, and when new mapping available, owners can take the to their dealer for the most revisions.

I had the opportunity to ride the new 2014 F3 800 at Valley Raceway, located in the desert just east of With ample track on this familiar circuit, I was to experiment with the bike’s (Motor Vehicle Integrated System) quite a bit. four ride modes Rain.

Sport and Custom), levels of traction control, and for initial throttle sensitivity, torque output, engine and engine braking, the F3 800 has a myriad of to try.

After my first I decided to change the Gas Sensitivity throttle response) from to Normal, as the aggressive response the engine when picking up the from a closed position was way too abrupt. After I made change my confidence with the improved dramatically. Next, I to pick a traction-control setting didn’t sacrifice too much I eventually settled on TC 1, or the lowest of intervention.

I left the rest of the engine on their most aggressive

Delivery from the triple is and smooth, which meant TC was more of a mental safety net a necessity. Which is good, the TC on the F3 isn’t that sophisticated. It on a single rear -wheel sensor and takes information the bike’s various other to predict slip and apply an map.

Other systems twin wheel-speed sensors can the exact amount of slip by front — to rear-wheel then cutting fuel ignition more accurately.

In guise, the F3 engine creates a that’s far more enjoyable to than the 675. The smaller is far peakier, which makes its -than-perfect electronics stand out all much more. The 800 simply like a completely different

That’s not to say the package is perfect. the course of the day, I sampled or four different test and two of the F3 800s had a transmission issue wouldn’t allow the next to be selected without two stabs at the lever. The ratchet mechanism fully engaging the selected so when I went to shift the first attempt was only the last shift and the next was finally making the desired

The quickshifter and its ignition cut made whole operation quite jerky.

As a track bike, the F3 chassis is really good. is a busy track with a variety of corners but not too many braking zones and only a of short straightaways. The F3’s end felt light and steered but also tended to shake its under hard acceleration the benefit of a steering damper to things down.

Midcorner stability felt good through a couple of the sweepers, allowing me to use the Pirelli ’ grip and maintain good speed. Of note: MV claims its crankshaft helps the bike from side to side easily, but I had no way to compare the 800 against a triple that day. As the track doesn’t have too hard braking zones, but the front brakes were with feel and power up there with the best .

At the end of the I walked away feeling MV has made a lot of progress in a short While there are still refinements that need to be to bring the F3 800 in line with the the company is making big strides. Of all of the in MV’s lineup. the F3 800 has the potential to be the

It’s engine feels the refined and has the fewest quirks, its chassis offers outstanding and agility.
