MV Agusta F3 triple | UKBike News

We've got some tech info on the middleweight MV Agusta F3 triple. Lots of claims for power and sophistication...

It looks like the MV Agusta F3 triple we wrote about here is going to be the big star of the Milan Bike show this week and the Italian outfit is making the most of its status as the season's hot ticket. At the moment all we have are press claims, but you can pick the facts from the fantasy below.

And you can say what you like, but it looks fantastic and if the reality lives up to the claims (and if it makes it into full production), then MV will have a winner and Castiglioni will have pulled it out the bag. Again.

This iconic engine has now returned in the form of an avant garde middle weight supersport with performance technical solutions based on the demands of Claudio Castiglioni who is convinced that this is the ideal architecture for a middle weight supersport.

The engine is the most compact, incredible short and narrow engine ever seen in this category. The powerplant is incredibly modern in design, technologically advanced and capable of generating the most power ever seen in this category. One of the numerous technical features is the counter-rotating crankshaft, never before seen on a production supersport engine.

The most advanced electronic engine control system has been designed specifically for this
extraordinary three cylinder. For the first time on an MV (and in the middle weight supersport
category) there is Ride By Wire with multi-maps that optimize the power output in all riding
conditions. The MV TC traction control has been incorporated into the engine control system raising the dynamic control to a new level on the F3.

As always, those who ride MV Agusta's have become accustomed to having the very best components and the maximum performance from the chassis. The new F3 follows this tradition with a level of quality that exceeds most of the 1000cc superbikes on the market.

As with all previous MV's, the advanced frame design incorporates a mix of steel tubing and aluminum side plates that wrap around the ultra compact engine offering a level of compactness never before seen on a supersport motorcycle. The compact engine dimensions left the maximum liberty to design the most advanced chassis on the market with an exceptionally long single sided swingarm that guarantees traction and feedback to the rider.

The components, as always, are of the highest quality. The Marzocchi front fork
is completely adjustable as well as the Sachs rear shock. The front brake system consists of a Nissin radial master cylinder and Brembo radial calipers and discs. It is simply the best and the new standard by which all other middleweight supersport bikes will be judged.
