MV Agusta will introduce a larger version of the F3 675, using the same bored-out three-cylinder engine as the Brutale 800 and Rivale 800.

Development of the new MV Agusta F3 800 is well underway, with the official reveal to take place in June. The short turnaround would suggest the F3 800 may share other features found on the 675, such as the chassis and MV Agusta‘s Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System (MVICS) electronics package.

Equipped on the Brutale 800, the 798cc three-cylinder engine claims 123 hp at 11,600 rpm and 60 ft-lb. at 8600 rpm, but it will be considerably more powerful and higher revving on the F3 800. It will likely produce more than 140 hp if it hopes to match up against its class competitors such as the Ducati 848EVO and the Suzuki GSX-R750.

The F3 675, for example, claims 126 hp at 14,400 rpm and 52 ft-lb. at 10,600 rpm while its naked sibling the Brutale 675 claims just 109 hp at 12,500 rpm and 48 ft-lb. at 12,000 rpm.

We’ll have more information when the MV Agusta F3 800 is officially revealed in a few weeks time.

    I am confused. This guy already claims to be selling one on Ebay. He’s even showing a photo of “800” on the windscreen. Is this upcoming or are they already selling them?

  • It’s easy to be confused about this topic, but that eBay auction is for a Brutale 800. This post is about a new F3 800. The Brutale is MV Agusta’s naked, streetfighter-type motorcycle. The F3 is MV’s middleweight sportbike, with full fairings, originally powered by a 675cc three-cylinder. MV took the 675 and bulked it up to 800 and made a Brutale model with it. Now MV is sticking that engine back in the F3 sportbike. That’s a simplified explanation, but hopefully you get the point.
