Updates to middleweight sports bike sharpen the whole package

As the World Supersport Championship announces that 800cc triple-cylinder bikes will be eligible to run alongside the 600cc four-cylinder bikes, MV Agusta unveils an updated and track-focussed F3 RR.

More track-focussed than ever before: just in time for World Supersport rule changes allowing 800cc triples

The World Supersport Championship for 600cc bikes might play second fiddle to the 1000cc World Superbike Championship in terms of public perception, but that doesn’t mean that manufacturers involved aren’t taking it seriously.

New Aerodynamics
Fairing much more slippery, directing air over and around the rider. Wings produce downforce

MV Agusta, in particular, has been a keen participant for several years, with its 675cc triple-cylinder F3. Now, with the announcement that 800cc triple-cylinder engines will be permitted to run alongside the 600cc fours, MV Agusta has unveiled an uprated F3RR with the 800cc engine.

Ultimate Track Tool
Chassis now stiffer, wheels lighter. Engine pushes out 145bhp

The biggest changes involve the bodywork. Close attention has been paid to aerodynamics and the fairing is now much more slippery with a set of mean-looking wings generating 8kg of downforce at 150mph. A taller screen and revised fairing sides are designed to direct air around and over the rider. The front mudguard is designed to ram as much air as possible through the radiator.

Wings

The engine now complies to Euro5 regulations but still pushes out a healthy 145bhp thanks to new internal anti-friction measures. Reigning all those horses in is a new electronics package by Italian company e-Novia, including cornering ABS, lean-sensitive traction control, slide control, wheelie control and launch control. There’s even cruise control for those long straights. There’s also Bluetooth connection for your phone to the dash.

Race Kit Available
Includes race ECU and this rather spanky Akrapovic exhaust system. Not cheap!

The frame has been stiffened around the swing-arm pivot area and a new rear wheel which is 7% lighter for less inertia. Finally, the foot pegs and seat have new anti-slip surfaces.

Uprated electronics
Cornering ABS, lean-sensitive traction control, slide, wheelie and launch control. Even cruise control!

If you fancy spending more money, there is a race kit, which comprises a race ECU and Akrapovic exhaust, raising power to 151bhp.

No word on US pricing as yet but don’t expect it to come cheap!
