THE F3 LINE exists for those in the market for a near-race bike option, for those days at the track when sheer horsepower and pinpoint handling matter. MV Agusta once again highlights its aptitude for racing. The F3 675 RC and F3 800 RC have much in common with the bikes seen at national and international race events, yet are also exhilarating road bikes. A variety of updates have been implemented to comply with Euro4 standards, which requires a 50 percent cut in emissions and 48 percent less noise.
ON THE STYLING FRONT, new colors and graphics mirror those seen on actual race bikes, such as the red wheels—a direct Supersport offshoot. The F3 675 RC touches 128 hp at 14,500 rpm with 71 Nm of torque at 10,900 rpm. The F3 800 RC reaches 148 hp at 13,000 rpm with 88 Nm of torque at 10,600 rpm. The most significant technical redesigns on the 2018 models were focused on the balance shaft, primary gearing, intake cam profiles and the valves. The gearbox has undergone a complete overhaul to make shifting easier and reduce clutch lever effort. Exhaust manifolds have also been redesigned, while the silencer—supplied by SC Project—was derived directly from the Racing Department. mvagusta.com
