Jules Cluzel Testing The MV Agusta F3 675 World Supersport Racer – Video
Late last year it was announced that MV Agusta would partner with Yakhnich Motorsport and field two F3 675 triples in World Supersport and one F4 1000 in the premier World Superbike class.

Phillip Island in Australia plays host to the season opening race in under a month’s time. On Sunday, February 23, we’ll see if the boys at MV Agusta did their homework to bring the F3 675 to the front.
