To the recently appeared “newbie” the Euro 5 version of the MV Agusta F3 Rosso sportbike is about to be joined by an improved RR model.
This became known from the vehicle type approval documents registered in Australia. From them it became known that the F3 lineup of 2021 includes the recently appeared F3 Rosso, the already famous Superveloce (close enough to the F3 to be approved together with it), as well as the yet unannounced F3 RR.
This is hardly surprising: after all, the Brutale and Dragster 800 families also include rookie Rosso and high-end RRs, however, before the F3 went the other way: above the basic version of the F3 there was also a racing replica RC.
MV Agusta F3 RR
The Australian document contains a number of key details about the MV Agusta F3 RR, including peak power, weight, displacement, wheelbase and even tire size. And in all these characteristics, it is identical to the rookie Rosso.
Peak power of 147hp is achieved at 13000rpm – exactly like the Rosso and Superveloce, and from this we can conclude that the 798-cc inline-three, compatible with Euro 5, remained on the RR in the same form as on relatives. This sets the F3 apart from the Brutale and Dragster, where the RR variants offer better performance than the Rosso.
Australian documents state that the F3 Rosso, F3 RR and Superveloce weigh 188kg – we are talking about curb weight, which is more realistic than 173kg “dry” masses declared by MV Agusta for the F3 Rosso and Superveloce (as well as last year’s F3 RC) in the company’s official materials. The wheelbase of the RR is the same 1380mm as on other models, which means that there are no significant changes in geometry, and the tire size remains the same: 180 / 55-17 at the rear and 120 / 70-17 at the front.
Of course, the MV Agusta F3 RR will receive the same updates as the F3 Rosso: a more rigid chassis than in the previous version, new electronics, a TFT instrument panel and a Continental inertia meter, replacing Bosch. A sharp new trio of tailpipes, already known from their relatives, will most likely appear on the RR – simply because this exhaust has already passed every conceivable environmental test in Europe with Rosso and Superveloce.
Differences MV Agusta F3 RR from Rosso
But how the novelty will differ from the more budgetary Rosso is not yet clear. Of course, by coloring: Rosso is called so because it is painted in “budgetary” a monochromatic version, and the MV Agusta F3 RR will most likely receive a two-tone scheme or a racing replica color scheme. Let’s also hope for improved suspension and braking components.
Given the recent appearance of Rosso, the presentation of the new model should be expected in the near future. Follow the news!
