The new MV Agusta F3 RC 800 and F3 RC 675 are quite possibly the lightest, most powerful, most race-focused and fastest middleweights that you can buy right now. They're intense...!

MV Agusta have unveiled the new, 2017-spec F3 RC, a 'Reparto Corse' World Supersport-replica that will be produced in limited numbers - just 350 units will be made available worldwide. The bike has been thoroughly updated and is now more intensely performance-focused than ever before. The F3 RC 675's three-cylinder engine now produces 128bhp at 14,400rpm and 71Nm of torque at 10,900rpm, while the F3 RC 800 boasts 148bhp at 13,000rpm and 88Nm of torque at 10,600 rpm from its screaming, howling, high-revving inline-three. Both variants get MV's new, updated MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System), with ride-by-wire throttle management, 8-level traction control and multiple riding modes.

The F3 RC's composite chassis, with a lightweight steel tube trellis section mated to aluminum alloy side plates and single-sided swingarm, remains unchanged, while the bike's Sachs monoshock and Marzocchi front forks have been further tuned and optimised for high-speed stability. According to MV, the RC's high ratio of swingarm length to wheelbase (576.5/1380mm) ensures maximum traction and perfect weight distribution.

In deference to its racing DNA, the new MV Agusta F3 RC bikes carry race-replica graphics that come straight from the racebikes ridden by Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zanetti in WSS. Each bike is also personally signed by the the riders on the side panels. Official accessories that come with the bike include single seat cover, a paddock stand and a bike cover. Not too bad, though we'd still rather wait for the all-new F4, which we hope MV will unveil at the EICMA, in Milan, next month! ;-)
