MV Agusta have released details on two limited-edition, race-inspired motorcycles slated for its 2018 line-up, the F3 675 RC and F3 800 RC.
The Italian manufacturer brought both F3 bikes up to Euro 4 standards, which means better emissions and less noise compared to what was allowed under Euro 3 restrictions. These bikes have received updated balance shafts, primary gearing, intake cam profiles and valves. The gearbox of both the 675 and 800 is revised also, to improve shifting and reduce clutch lever pull.
MV also redesigned the exhaust manifolds and the motorcycles make use of silencers supplied by SC Project, inspired by the kit used on MV race bikes.
The F3 675 RC is said to pump out 128 horsepower at 14,500 rpm and provide 52.4 lb-ft of torque at 10,900 rpm. The F3 800 RC supplies 148 horsepower at 13,000 rpm and 65 lb-ft of torque at 10,600 rpm.
Both models receive new engine covers also.
The engines are held in the tubular steel trellis frames by new frame mount points to improve the rigidity of the chassis.
MV Agusta also refined the ride-by-wire performance with new mapping options and the eight-level traction control system and EAS 2.0 electronic shifter are updated too.
There will be 350 units produced of each model. No word yet on availability or price.
