MV Agusta Overhauls its F3 RR Superbike with 153HP & Improved Downforce

Though there’s no denying that MV Agusta’s F3 RR has always been a capable sportbike, it’s a model that’s been left sidelined without a class in which to compete. But no longer. With the World Supersport Championship announcing that 800cc triples can now race alongside 600cc fours, the F3 RR will finally have an opportunity to prove its mettle on the track.

Naturally, MV Agusta wants to celebrate the occasion, and they’ve done so by giving the RR a full-on performance overhaul. At first glance, you can tell that the bike is itching to compete, as it wears some thoroughly updated bodywork. Streamlined in order to improve aerodynamic efficiency, it comes with a radiator-cooling front fender and a set of massive carbon fiber winglets that can generate as much as 17lbs of downforce at 150mph. And that’s not all; the chassis, too, features a number of notable changes, redesigned for greater stiffness and lightened by some 7% at the wheels. When paired with the bike’s state-of-the-art tech — an e-Novia IMU and a Continental ABS system — it makes for a markedly more controlled platform. Of course, MV Agusta has also played with the engine to retain its output in spite of Euro5 regulations. By giving the RR titanium valves and fitting it with new crankshaft bearings, MV can still squeeze out a thundering 147 horses. (And up to 153 when specced with an optional Race Kit.)

Not forgetting its road-going intentions, however, the F3 RR even comes with creature comforts like smartphone integration and cruise control for those more spirited tours. It’s available to order now starting at $25,700, with deliveries expected early next year.

Purchase: $25,700+
