2012 MV Agusta F3 675 to be Featured on National Geographic Channel
The MV Agusta F3 675 will be featured in an upcoming episode of the series “Ultimate Factories” on the National Geographic Channel.
The episode takes a look at the MV Agusta‘s factory in Varese, Italy, and examines the design, development, testing and assembly of the new F3.
“Ultimate Factories” (also known as “Megafactories” outside the U.S.) examines the inner workings of factories producing goods from Apache helicopters to Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 whiskey.
Most episodes focus on vehicles, but the MV Agusta F3 episode will be the third to feature motorcycles. The third episode of the series’ first season in 2007 looked at the production of the Harley-Davidson V-Rod from the Kansas City, Mo., plant, and more last February, the “Ultimate Factories” went to Bologna, Italy, to examine the production of the Ducati Multistrada 1200S.
