    Default MV Agusta F3XX - 160 Bhp, 155 Kg and a boatload of fun!

    Motorcycles from MV Agusta are lookers. The previous statement is an understatement. You can look for yourself. Here… and here. They are screamers, obviously, perform well and sometimes the specs just blow one away like the case is here. But what about a motorcycle that makes around 160 Bhp but weighs only 155 Kg… wet! It is outrageous and it is known as an MV Agusta F3XX.



    So MV Agusta has a racing division (like that’s a surprise!), MV Agusta Reparto Corse. But Reparto Corse is a completely different business unit from the bike-maker. So, in every sense of the word, they build their own track bike and the result is an MV Agusta F3XX. This motorcycle is an 800cc cousin to the motorcycle that recently secured a podium finish in the recent World Supersport round.

    The aspects of the MV Agusta F3XX aren’t just limited to the power and weight figures either. For MV Agusta Reparto Corse, racing is what that do and that is their only business. So the impressive spec sheet of the motorcycle should not come as a surprise. But since the group takes care of racing, them building a motorcycle that can be bought by the general public too is a bit… strange. But then, it is not going to be rolling off of a production line like nobody’s business. Instead, this is like a hand-built, limited volume and very exclusive kind of endeavour.

    In fact, it is so serious that they haven’t even quoted a price for this one. The ones, bestowed with enough money to actually buy a piece of moon for their amore and willing to spend a fortune on this motorcycle, can reach out to the company for a quote. And they will build one for you just the way you like it. It all depends on what the outrageously rich person we mentioned above is willing to spend. They even have one which is all carbon-fibre… even the fairings!

    Since the bike has been built by some people who take racing very very seriously, the MV Agusta F3XX’s wiring harness has been rebuilt and shortened. It has an integrated datalogger. It also has an AiM MXS1.2 TFT dash instead of the stock LCD unit and an SC-Project built 3-1 full system exhaust. Another neat touch is that the motorcycle has potentiometers installed as standard with which you can begin breaking down your lap times by corner and study the performance of your suspension, throttle, braking pressure, and so forth.

    And last but not least, the looks. Of course, the F3XX is inspired by the roadgoing sibling and predictably, looks pretty darn slick! Not legal for the streets, not extremely practical and probably costing a bomb, the MV Agusta F3XX is not the most practical motorcycle. But if racetrack is your home and your bank account is of the size comparable to Jupiter, you may have already booked one...

    Looks like the weight is only coming from engine+wheels, the entire chassis seems to be of carbon fiber. In which class would this race?

    The chassis is not carbon-fibre and that is probably because of the flex characteristics associated with the material... probably.
    About the class, we believe it races in the 'fun' class only because in the Supersport category, the maximum displacement allowed for a 3-cylinder engine is 675cc.
