2015 MV Agusta F3 675 Review
“Most beautiful 600 in the world”…
After being elected the “Most beautiful 600 in the world”, the MV Agusta F3 675 ABS is now ready to become the new reference both on the street and on the track. This Supersport boasts an ultra-advanced chassis and vehicle dynamics control unit MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System), that is on par with the most advanced Superbikes.
The MV Agusta F3 675 ABS is a revolutionary motorcycle offering extreme emotions to the rider on the street and on the track. The three cylinder engine utilizes a revolutionary counter-rotating crankshaft, a solution that has only been previously seen on Moto GP motorcycles. Together with the most compact and light weight layout ever seen on a Supersport bike, these characteristics make the new F3 675 ABS one of the best handling and most sophisticated Supersport motorcycles.
The MV Agusta F3 675 ABS engine is the most advanced and powerful middle weight engine ever produced. It is an ultra-compact in-line three cylinder with the perfect balance between advanced mechanical engineering, advanced materials and electronic technology. Thanks to the MVICS system it is the first middleweight motorcycle with Full Ride by Wire engine controls. It includes 4 pre-set engine maps, one personally tunable map, and an 8 level traction control.
The chassis is also incredibly advanced. Studied and designed to obtain the maximum dynamic performance, it was created to have optimum rigidity and when compared to the other motorcycles in this category, offers an unparalleled level of feedback during all riding conditions. The development of the style of the MV Agusta F3 675 ABS was based on the core philosophy that has always characterized all previous MV’s: the perfect balance between form and function that creates an object that is unique not only for its beauty but also in its effectiveness.

2015 MV Agusta F3 675 – Features and Benefits
The 3 cylinder layout has won a record number of world championships for MV Agusta, and the new 3 cylinder 675 pays homage to that history. This new engine employs the most advanced technical solutions to achieve top performance.
Only MV Agusta has been able to develop an incredibly short and narrow, ultra-compact engine due to the unique layout of its internal organs. Utilizing a 79mm bore, a super-short stroke of 45,9mm the MV Agusta 3 cylinder engine is extremely over-square and able to rev the highest levels ever achieved by three cylinder sports bike. It is an ultra-modern, extremely advanced engine capable of 128 hp at 14.500 rpm and 71 Nm of torque at 10.600 rpm. This level of performance has never before been available in this category and it is on par with the performance of a number of 4 cylinder engines thanks to a 15.000 rpm limit. For the first time ever, a production motorcycle utilizes a counter-rotating crankshaft that contributes to its perfect dynamic balance as well as increasing the lightning quick handling of the motorcycle.
Ultra-compact dimensions, reduced weight best in class performance are the characteristics that make the engine of the new MV Agusta F3 675 ABS the new reference in the supersports class. An engine destined to become the new benchmark of supersport engines thanks to innovative technical solutions such as the use of a single shell mold casting resulting in the “closed deck” integration of the cylinders into the crankcase, the use of titanium both for the intake and exhaust valves and the new MVICS system. Another unique feature is the integrate oil and water system: the pump system (water and oil) and passages are placed entirely inside the crankcase castings offering both performance and styling advantages to the most powerful Italian 3 cylinder ever produced.
The most advanced electronic engine control system ever seen on a Supersport has been designed specifically for this extraordinary new three cylinder. A fuel injection system that is extremely sophisticated using a two fuel injectors per cylinder coupled with a throttle body employing 50mm throttle valves, a new record for a Supersport! The F3 675 ABS introduces for the first time the MVICS system that allows the engine to unleash a record level of power and control in every situation. The rider can select one of the 4 available maps, or customize an additional map to obtain the power delivery desired. With the MVICS system it is possible to generate a perfect harmony between the power delivery and the traction control. As with every MV Agusta the Traction Control offers 8 levels of adjustment and is now accessible through the input on the left handlebar and the dashboard interface. This system is incredibly advanced and can be custom tailored by the rider with a series of optional MV Agusta Special Parts:
– Vehicle lean sensor capable of reading all of the vehicle inclination data. This interfaces with the traction control and engine control algorithms effectively reading the wheel slip during all angles of lean and then adjusting the throttle opening, spark advance and fuel delivery to ensure the optimal safety and acceleration in all dynamic conditions
– Launch Control which permits the optimum performance during starts and offering the maximum acceleration possible
– Anti-wheeling which permits the optimization of the vehicle acceleration
– MV Agusta EAS (Electronically Assisted Shift) which allows incredibly rapid shifting without ever having to close the throttle or employ the clutch.
As always, those who ride MV Agusta’s have become accustomed to having the very best components and maximum performance from the chassis. The new F3 675 ABS follows this tradition with a level of quality that exceeds most of the 1000cc superbikes on the market. As with all previous MV’s, the advanced frame design incorporates a mix of steel tubing and aluminum side plates that wrap around the ultra-compact engine offering a level of compactness never before seen on a supersport motorcycle. The compact engine dimensions left the maximum liberty to design the most advanced chassis on the market with an exceptionally long single sided swingarm that guarantees traction and feedback to the rider. All of this encapsulated in a 1,380 mm wheelbase with a 173 kg weight that has set a new record for the Supersport category. The components, as always, are of the highest quality. The Marzocchi 43mm front fork is completely adjustable as well as the Sachs piggy-back rear shock. The front brake system consists of a Nissin radial master cylinder, Brembo radial calipers and 320 mm discs all coupled to ultra-light aluminum wheels that allows the F3 675 ABS to offer handling never before experienced on a Supersport motorcycle.
