MV Agusta are producing only 200 units of the Gold Series, MV Agusta is building these bikes to each customer’s specifications, with a price tag upwards of €20,000 being the name of the game.

Helping justify that high cost for the MV Agusta F3 Serie Oro, MV Agusta has made Brembo monobloc calipers, Öhlins forks, an Öhlins TTX rear shock, and forged aluminum wheels all stock on the 675cc supersport machine.

The premium F3 also boasts plenty of carbon fiber and a sophisticated electronics package,

Continuing the trend of MV “Gold” specials – seen in 1999 with the F4 and 2004 with the Brutale – the F3 version will also come loaded with lightweight Magnesium alloy wheels.

MV Agusta has set it's Italian appetite on the middle-weight supersport class. The machine ready to take on all other supersports is the MV Agutsta F3, one that the manufacturer says is synonymous with "excellence, style and technology."

Wanting to upset the balance of power in the supersport class, MV Agusta designed the F3 to completely exceed all previous conceptions of what a supersport motorcycle should be, therefore redefining an entirely new category.

The motorcycle features a 675 triple which is currently claimed to make 137 horsepower, and is designed to be more compact and lightweight than all other supersport motorcycles.

The most attractive feature on the new F3 is the triple-pipe side exit muffler, and the usual smooth lines typical of MV Agusta.

MV Agusta F3 Engine

The powerplant of the new F3, an inline 675cc three cylinder, plays homage to the most victorious motorcycle brands in the word.

With this layout MV Agusta raced and won an unprecedented number of races and world championship titles. 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 MV Agusta F3 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.

MV Agusta F3 Electronics

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 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 MV Agusta F3 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.

MV Agusta F3: Three Cylinders, Made in Italy

The dominance of MV Agusta in the motorcycle Grand Prix is in part due to their most victorious engine design. Of the 37 world titles won by the bikes from Cascina Costa, 10 are attributed to the bikes with the inline three cylinder engines.

MV Agusta was the first motorcycle manufacturer in the world to believe in this technical solution, a risk that paid off with countless victories. The three-cylinder project began as a twin cam 350 followed by a 500cc version, these bikes were legendary for their power as well as their lighter weight and improved aerodynamics compared to the 4 cylinder competition.

The project was designed at the request of Count Agusta, developed on the race track by Giacomo Agostini and raced by the greatest champions of all time winning immediately. Initially the 350 twin cam, followed by the 500 twin cam, these motorcycles became the reference point for all of the other manufacturers as they offered unmatched performance allowing them to dominate the competition.

This dominance was translated into 10 world championship titles, 9 Italian championships and 215 race wins. The MV three cylinder was a motorcycle unequaled by the competition by applying technology that was advanced for its time and destined to become the future for all high performance engines.

Even today, the classic three-cylinder MV Agusta motorcycle is an example for the rational application of technology and pure styling. A style so unique that it transcends to the soul of the MV's of today.

Having to choose which engine layout would power the new MV Agusta middle weight, Claudio Castiglioni chose the most rational configuration of the three cylinder. A choice that is technically advanced while at the same time respects the long history of MV Agusta and their countless successes with this engine layout.

Today, as well as in the past, the F3 takes advantage of a very compact design, advanced technology and unparalleled power.

With the new F3, history and future are fused into a single entity giving form to the most beautiful and technologically advanced "600", a motorcycle that clearly marks the beginning of a new era.
