In keeping with the traditions of the brand, the volume production of the new F3 ORO will be preceded by the small “Serie Oro” versions. These exclusive models will be available in approximately 200 examples and only on special orders.
The F3 ORO Serie Limited Edition is easily recognized by the elegant design and single-sided swingarm, as well as the forged aluminum wheels painted in gold color. The unique character of the bike is also enhanced by the minimalist graphics and the gold plate mounted on the upper tripleclamp to identify each individually numbered bike.
On the technical side of things, the bike is equipped with Brembo breaks, fully adjustable Öhlins upside down forks, a TTX shock and steering damper. At the heart of the MV Agusta F3 675 Serie ORO Limited Edition lies a three cylinder, 4 stroke, 12 valve DOHC engine with a total displacement of 675 cc.

MV Agusta tried an interesting experiment and combined the F4 CC with the F4 R 312. Both bikes have sporty genes and naturally, the result is part of the sport class as well. MV Agusta named its new offspring the F4 1078RR 312 and many considered it the most beautiful motorcycle in the world.
The bike is propelled by a fresh four cylinder, 4 stroke, 16 valve, d.o.h.c, 1078.37 cc engine which offers a maximum power of 190 hp and 91.4 ft/lb (124 Nm) of torque at 8,200. The engine is mated on a six speed constant mesh gearbox. Talking about the gearbox, the first three gears are longer to spread the power output better at high speed and also restrain the initial surge on take-off. First gear takes the bike to 87, second to about 110 and third to nearly 135 mph, while the maximum speed is rated at 186.2 MPH.

The new MV Augusta Rivale was fully revealed to the public at the EICMA Motor Show this week. The bike features a modern design which puts accent on aggressivity and sportiness and competes directly against the Ducati Hypermotorad.
The bike is equipped with a 124 hp engine which reaches its peak power at 11600 rpm. The engine is basically the same used in the 675 model but it gained 12 ponies more and also offers a bigger torque, rated at 60 ft. lbs @ 8600. To give the bike a better balance, the engine received a counter rotating crankshaft, a technology usually found in MotoGP. The bike also comes with Ride-By-Wire throttle control and Augusta’s MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) system which offers three engine maps.
The engine is mounted on a steel-trellis frame with single sided swingarm and aluminum alloy plates which help to keep the bike’s weight to as low as 375 lbs.
The MV Augusta Rivale 800 features Marzocchi and Sachs suspension with adjustable spring preload, hydraulic compression and rebound damping. As far as stopping power goes, the bike comes with dual 320mm discs and four-piston radial calipers up front, and a 220mm disc combined with a twin-piston Brembo caliper at the back.
The 2013 MV Augusta Rivale 800 has a starting price of $13,970 and will be available in 2013.

The MV Agusta F4 R was designed from the ground up to deliver sporty performances. The key feature of the F4 R is the new “Corsa Corta” engine which is also offered for the F4 RR super bike. The engine delivers a maximum output of 195.2 hp at 13000 rpm and features a series of upgrades which improve its power delivery and the overall performance. For the starters the cylinder head uses completely new ports and employs larger valves both on the inlet and exhaust, while the valves are made of titanium. The bike also uses a new 4-2-1-4 primary section for the exhaust system which helps the engine breathe easier.
The engine is mounted on a steel tubular trellis frame with the steering head angled at 23.5°, to offer perfect control, maneuverability, and stability. The frame is combined with a lightweight rear single-sided swingarm that weighs only 5 kg.

MV Agusta has taken the wraps off its all-new Brutale 800 and made public the first details. The new motorcycle is based on the Brutale 675 model, but features a stronger engine and some key modifications for improved performance.
The bike’s 12 valve three cylinder 798cc Inline Triple unit is based on the same engine that powers the F3 super sport. Compared to the 675 Brutale, the 800’s engine features a higher compression ratio at 13.3:1. The engine develops a maximum power of 125 hp at 11.600 rpm and 60 lb-ft torque at 8600 rpm. As far as electronics goes, the new Brutale 800 comes with a switchable engine mapping and eight-way switchable traction control.
The bike’s forks and shock are adjustable for rebound, compression and preload, while the stopping power is assured by Brembo radial brakes.
Another interesting fact is that the 800 and 675 share the same dry weight of 368 pounds (167 kg) with identical fuel loads at 4.39 gallons.
The bike is priced at 9900 Euros which is only 1000 Euro more than the entry-level Brutale 675 and 3000 Euro less than the stronger 1090 Brutale.
The new bike will go head to head with the likes of Triumph 675 Speed Triple, Kawasaki Z800 and Ducati 800 Monster.

A 200-horsepower bike is no joke and the fact that it’s a limited edition model that only carries 100 units only adds to its prestige. The MV Augusta F4CC is that kind of bike.
Based on the F4, the F4CC was built in 2007 as a limited edition model in honor of the company’s founder, Claudio Castiglioni. The bike came with a ridiculous 1,078 cc engine that produced a staggering 200 horsepower. In order to achieve the increased displacement, MV Augusta increased the bike’s bore and stroke while also adding lighter pistons, stronger connecting rods, a one-of-a-kind slipper clutch, plenty of exotic materials, and a full-titanium exhaust system, resulting in a bike that weighs 8.8 lbs less than a standard F4R model.
This particular model was in superb condition and only had 2,030 km of mileage. It’s no wonder that for a bike that cost €100,000 ($125,000) brand new, it was scooped up at a recent auction for €49,725, which is about $62,700 based on current exchange rates.
Since MV Agusta is synonymous with excellence, style, and technology, the new F3 will apply these principles to the middle weight super sport category.
The new F3 has exceeded previous expectations of what a supersport motorcycle should be, so much so that it’s redefining an entirely new category. Its light weight frame, unmatched power, and state-of-the-art electronics all work together on this bike to push the concept of supersport to the extreme and provide a powerful, hyper-light, and more compact motorcycle than any other in existence.
This bike is a true MV Agusta that boasts an ultra-advance chassis, vehicle dynamics control, and the new MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System).
When judged and compared to the rest of its competitors, the F3 is setting the new standard by which all other supersport motorcycles will be measured against. True to its looks and capabilities, this sports bike is truly in a class of its own.
