MV Agusta revealed official photos and specifications for the 798cc version of the F3 675 supersport. The new 2014 MV Agusta F3 800 offers similar styling to the 675 but offers a bigger engine, slipper clutch, upgraded suspension and monobloc calipers.
The F3 800’s three-cylinder engine has the same 79mm bore as the F3 675 but its 54.3mm stroke is 8.4 mm longer and uses the same counter-rotating crankshaft design said to reduce rotational inertia. The rev limiter has also been increased to 13,500 rpm and the fuel injection has also been revised for a higher flow rate. Like the 675, the F3 800 comes with a quick shifter but also gains a slipper clutch.
MV Agusta claims the larger engine produces 146 hp at 13,000 rpm and 64.9 ft-lb. at 10,600 rpm, both upgrades over the claimed output of 124.3 hp at 14,400 rpm and 52.4 ft-lb. at 10,600 rpm. According to MV Agusta, the F3 800 has the same dry weight of 381.4 pounds as the 675, giving the new model a significantly higher power-to-weight ratio. MV Agusta claims the F3 800 can reach a top speed of 167.1 mph compared to the F3 675 which claims a top speed of 161.5 mph.
Like the F3 675, the F3 800 comes with MV Agusta’s Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System (MVICS) electronics package with ride-by-wire throttle, three preset engine maps, a fourth user-customizable map and an eight-level traction control system.
The 800 also gains fully adjustable suspension, with a 43mm Marzocchi upside-down fork and Sachs rear shock (the F3 675 only offers rear spring-preload adjustment). The brakes have also been upgraded with the 800 sporting monobloc four-piston Brembo calipers.
The 2014 MV Agusta F3 675 will be offered in three color options: pearl white/black, red/silver and matt metallic black. U.S. pricing and availability is still to be determined, but in Europe the F3 800 will go for 13,990 euros (US$18,282).
