F3 800

The exhilaration of a 1000 cc bike, the handling of a 600. The torque of a twin, the acceleration of a four-cylinder.
The MV Agusta F3 800 pushes back the performance barriers, thanks to Italian-made 3-cylinder engine excellence.

More power, more torque, more adrenaline. The outcome? A motorcycle with exceptional handling, an advanced electronics package and a new 800 cc engine that punches out 148 hp and 88 Nm of torque. Coupled with a super-low weight of 173 kg, the resulting power-to-weight ratio puts it in a position to do battle with litre-class Sportbikes.
The MV Agusta F3 675 redefined the mid-weight Supersport concept by offering up a perfect engine-chassis balance, a power unit packed with quintessential Italian technology and a chassis with class-leading performance on both road and track. The MV Agusta F3 800 goes even further, pushing the mid-range Supersport boundaries all the way up to Superbike replica level thanks to a segment-revolutionising design that is nothing less than a technological and performance milestone.

Bore diameter remains unaltered at 79.0 mm, while the stroke has been increased from 45.9 mm to 54.3 mm, boosting displacement from 675 cc to 798 cc. Power output reaches a stunning 148 hp at 13,000 rpm, with the peak torque of 88 Nm arriving at 10,600 rpm. The rev limiter has been set to kick in at 13,500 rpm. A double overhead cam timing system with four titanium valves per cylinder gives awesome performance, especially at high revs. Improvements have also been made to the fuel injectors, which ensure higher flow rates than those on the F3 675.

The three-cylinder engine is an astonishing feat of motorcycle engineering: extremely light and compact (weighing just 52 kg), it features a closed-deck shell-cast crankcase with integral bores. Its water and oil circuits are actually incorporated in the crankcase castings and their respective pumps are located inside the engine, giving clear-cut advantages in terms of both styling and compactness. Further innovations on the 3-cylinder MV Agusta F3 800 include the counter-rotating crankshaft, a technical solution that, prior to the F3 675, was strictly reserved for MotoGP bikes. The aim? To reduce inertia during quick directional changes, enhance engine balance and so make the intrinsic handling qualities of the F3 even better.
The considerably higher performance – bike mass remaining equal – is highlighted by an augmented power-to-weight ratio (1.17 kg/hp) compared to the F3 675. And that’s not all: acceleration responsiveness has been remarkably improved under all conditions, as has mid-range power delivery smoothness.
