MV Agusta’s F3 Supersport can now fly along with the best of them thanks to new updates to the Italian screamer.
Headlining the new updates is a new aerodynamics package capable of producing 8kg of downforce from winglets integrated into each side of the fairing, an updated 147hp inline-3 engine and new electronics.
Those new aerodynamic appendages that make up the sides of the fairing are made of forged carbon fibre and according to MV Agusta are able to generate a load of 8 kg on the front end when the bike is at its top speed of 240 km/h.
The aero tweaks don’t end there, however. The F3 RR features a taller screen and the revised fairing sides are designed to direct air around and over the rider. The front mudguard is also designed to ram as much air as possible through the radiator to aid in the cooling of the 800cc triple.
The electronics are sorted thanks to Italian firm e-Novia with their new proprietary IMU taking the reigns. That means the F3RR boasts all the expected rider aids including cornering ABS, lean-sensitive traction control, slide control, wheelie control and launch control. There’s even cruise control for those masochists who like taking their superspot touring (you know who you are!). There’s also Bluetooth connection to pair your phone to the new 5.5 inch TFT dash.
The chassis hasn’t missed out on updates either, with the frame around the swingarm pivot point now stiffened while the rear wheel has been lightened to achieve 7% less inertia.
If that wasn’t enough, MV will also offer the F3RR with an optional race kit, which boosts power to 151hp thanks to a new race ECU and Akrapovic exhaust. It also removes the unnecessary road-legal bits like the rear mudguard and number plate holder in a tidy manner as per MV’s “motorcycle art” ethos.
No word yet on New Zealand availability or pricing at this stage, but expect it to come at a premium.
