MV Agusta started off as an aviation company inspired by the Wright brothers? Within the first ten years of the first ever flight taken, MV Agusta aviation company was able to manufacture an airplane named the AG 1. Later they proceeded to manufacture many airplanes when they secretly jumped into manufacturing their first ever two-wheelers. After the sports version of the MV 98 was released, MV Agusta’s official entry in the racing sector was declared. Since then this Italian bike; MV Agusta, has dominated the race tracks.
“Headlights are sharper than a tiger's claw!!”
It actually looks like it could cut through the winds. The headlight positioning, windscreen and side mirrors are clustered together into an inverted triangular shape. The Windscreen does not have ample wind protecting height and the mirrors are not much outward facing causing less visibility on the sides. But the more packed and sharp the head of a sports bike is, the faster it goes, so we can't complain.
“The front side indicators are mounted onto the side mirrors.” Well that's pretty sick!! Just look at the Gigantic fuel compartment and the body structure around it, these sharp edges!! This bike isn’t here to play. Comparatively, it is much smaller than other sports bikes but its overall design integration makes it feel much stronger. “Motorcycle Art”: MV Agusta’s tagline really complements F3 675. Instrument cluster is fully digital from the speedometer, odometer, trip meter, ra Clock, ABS Light, Fuel Gauge, Low Oil Indicator, Low Battery Indicator and other major features are included too. Being the true sports racing beast it is, the handling and riding position is well structured for the bike’s sporty and racer feel.
Continuing the racer aesthetics is the rear section as well, the seating position is designed rather aggressively. But the F3 675 has a well designed ratio from the footpegs to the seat height which actually is comfortable for all heights. The handle positions definitely give a little strain on the back of the rider but
THIS IS THE FUN OF RIDING THIS BEAUTY!!!
Look at the way the bike flys at the rear!! Amazing!!
Seats are a bit stiff and less cushiony which could be improved but race bikes are meant to be challenging right?? We can track some small indicator lamps and the tail lamps are integrated into the pillion seat. The most beautiful scene in the rear is the 3 exhaust cylinders. Look at how well it is placed. The ALS Steel Tubular Trellis Frame peaks near the exhaust along with the Thermoplastic Fairings. The MV Agusta F3 675 has all the features that a racer's dream bike should have and the dual tone colors on the bike adds the icing on the cake.
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE:
The engine!! Again, where do we even start from???
Every part of the F3 675 will make race bike enthusiasts speechless. The engine is a 675 cc, 4 stroke, 3 cylinder, 12 valve, “D.O.H.C” with mechanical chain tensioner and euro 4 emission standard. This beast generates a maximum power of 128 [email protected] RPM and a maximum torque of 70.5 [email protected] RPM. This bike has one of the largest displacement and power and torque generation among all the sports bikes that has been reviewed here on NEPALI WHEELS!!! The engine cooling system has two separate liquid and oil cooling radiators. But the MV Agusta F3 675 generates a bit more heat than the others, but it is justifiable due to its powerful engine.
HIGHLIGHT OF THE F3 675:
The Engine Management System: supports the Integrated ignition. It has an Injection system MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) with six injectors Engine control unit Eldor EM2.0, throttle body full ride by wire Mikuni, pencil-coil with ion-sensing technology, control of detonation and misfire. To make it even more unique it has Eight levels of Traction Control and Four different riding modes from normal to custom modes. The Wet, multi-disc slipper clutch keeps the high heat generated from high torque and high friction at a minimal level. The engine gets power input from 3 different locations in the bike, accumulated in the central main engine and again the output can be seen through the 3 cylinder exhausts in the rear. This integrated system of the MV Agusta F3 675 makes it one of the most amazing and powerful racers of its time.
“Speed is what racing beats are built for.”
The 6 speed, cassette style transmission box is what makes this beat fly in the racing tracks, actuallyyy!! Its recorded top speed is 251 km/h. At the first gear, the bike can rev over 100km/hr and along the 6 gear shifts, imagine how fast this beast can accelerate. This bike has a 16.5 liter fuel tank with an average full tank ride range of 190 -195 km. Mileage is estimated between 15 and 20 kmpl to power this one hell of a machine. Unfortunately, it is less than many four-wheelers in the scene. But all in all the F3 675 is a very fast motorcycle built for the race tracks and race tracks only. And also the throttle makes a really satisfying note when revved.
As already pointed out, the ALS Steel Tubular Trellis Frames are used to make the structure of the MV Agusta F3 675. This frame design has made the bike even more racing equipped with ease during cornering as the bike moves parallel to the rider's body. The suspension setting includes an “UPSIDE DOWN” telescopic hydraulic fork with rebound-compression damping and spring preload external and separate adjustment in the front, with a 125 mm fork travel. The Rear suspension is a 123mm wheel travel, Progressive Sachs, single shock absorber with rebound and compression damping and spring preload adjustment. Suspension of this bike is “as soft as cushions”.
The Braking system is equipped with the ABS system. We can see 320mm Double loading disc brakes on the front and 220mm steel single disc brakes on the rear. According to our overview, the rear brakes perform better than the front brakes, as a part of a racing bike component. Both the suspension and braking system are comfortable and soft, but the brakes seem to be a bit sudden and strong but for the rider's safety, it is an irreplaceable element. The beast gets 17 inch aluminum alloy wheels, measuring 120/70-ZR in the front and 180/55-ZR in the rear. The tyres are made as smooth as possible to spin like butter on the racing tracks. The dimensions are built exactly to fit the racing tracks. The overall length and width is 2030 mm and 730 mm respectively. 830mm seat height fits any rider with an average height above 5’5 ft. The 120mm ground clearance is not built for any road terrain, especially not for the unpredictable roads of Nepal with natural and man-made bumps. The MV Agusta F3 675 weighs around 173 kgs, but doesn't feel like it when one is riding it.
When beauty meets the beast.
The MV Agusta F3 675 has been listed as the top 400 Most Beautiful Bikes in the world. Along with its art-like design, its roaring power can be defined by every specification and feature it possesses. From its amazingly powerful engine and 3 cylinder exhausts to the air bending design, We can now say that, “MV Agusta F3 675 is the dream bike for the racer.”
This bike is made for the race tracks and not exactly for the streets, but it does perform well on the streets with black topped paves and smooth roads. Very specifically, this bike is designed for a racer and ride enthusiast. Due to its handling and seating positions and the mileage it gives, the F3 675 would not be the most practical daily usage bike but for a racer point of view, this is one the best bikes a racer could ever dream of. It is available in beautiful colors like the AGO Red/AGO Silver, Pearl White and Matt Avio Grey. Priced at Rs. 43,90,000, it has paved its way to be among the most expensive two-wheelers of Nepal, but surprisingly it is actually the most affordable bike among other MV Agusta bikes.
Directly targeting the premium race enthusiasts, MV Agusta manufactures only 8500 bikes a year, making it fall among the small bike manufacturers of the world. This shows how MV Agusta focuses on quality rather than quantity when designing their everlasting race beasts.
