The F3 is the newest member of the ROSSO line. The all-in-one fairing, clip-on handlebars. And undeniable MV Agusta character in a more accessible package.
- Euro 5 low friction engine
- High-pressure injectors
- Bi-directional flow radiator
- Redesigned exhaust
- New IMU Inertial platform
- Continental ABS with cornering function
- 5.5″ TFT display
The new 2021 F3 adds that extra something to the ROSSO range. The ultimate in MV Agusta sports attitude has never been so accessible.
Like all three-cylinder platform bikes, the F3 receives several technical updates to improve its usability and performance for 2021.
While the goal of a supersport is the ultimate performance, further heightened by the arrival of new engine components.
The ROSSO has also seen MV Agusta technicians working to ensure riding pleasure on the road.
Its sportiness remains obvious and pronounced. The chassis unanimously considered the best in the segment, remains a point of reference.
With the F3 ROSSO, the MV Agusta sports bike legend is made available to a broad audience.
Now MV Agusta’s refined design and complete technical details are available to a broader audience.
Long considered the best medium-sized supersport in its chassis, the F3 takes another step forward for 2021.
Redesigned frame plates and a particular focus on the swingarm connection area have led to increased torsional.
And longitudinal stiffness, characteristics that improve riding precision and rider feeling.
With maximum declared power of 147 HP, the MV Agusta three-cylinder is still one of the most powerful in the category.
The meticulous work to refine the 2021 model – Euro5 homologated, of course.Has seen MV Agusta technicians further reduce internal friction by using a DLC treatment for the new buckets and new materials for the valve guides.
While the valves are still titanium, the main bearings, rods, and countershaft are new, redesigned to reduce friction and improve reliability.
The exhaust system has been completely overhauled, from the manifold to silencer, to improve delivery to fill out the torque and power curves at all speeds.
All without compromising the classic and unmistakable sound of the MV Agusta three-piston.
The injectors are also new, now able to handle an additional 0.5 bar of injection pressure.
The ECU firmware is updated, as are the engine management logics and control algorithms, making for more precise and refined throttle management.
Further to improve cooling, a new bi-directional flow radiator comes used for a 5% boost in efficiency.
The clutch now has a reinforced clutch basket, boosted in terms of its manageability and quietness.
The Quick-Shift EAS 3.0 with bi-directional function is now in its third generation and improves shifting quality. Now softer and more precise thanks to introducing a new sensor.
The new IMU inertial platform, designed and developed in Italy by Milan firm e-Novia exclusively for MV Agusta.
Recognises the bike’s position to manage all controls based on the lean angle swiftly.
The ABS, now developed by Continental, comes complete with a cornering function. At the same time, the TC traction control can intervene more precisely by considering the bike’s lean angle.
The IMU also means that the updated FLC (front lift control) can manage a controlled wheelie rather than prevent it altogether.
All this gets controlled via a connected 5.5″ TFT display that can communicate with the MV Ride App.
The app (for IOS and Android) allows trip recording and sharing on the leading social media platforms. And offers the ability to customise every aspect of the bike (including engine settings) directly from a smartphone.
Thanks to the mirroring function, the rider now has navigation with turn-by-turn directions and recording and sharing itineraries.
As previously mentioned, the F3 ROSSO aims for maximum performance and high-level usability on the road.
As with every model in the ROSSO range, the colour RED dominates the superstructures. This case, paired with the black of the engine, frame and wheels, for a genuinely aggressive visual impact.
