CRAFTED FOR DEMANDING RIDERS.

2018 MV Agusta F3 675 RC Review on Total Motorcycle:

Asphalt, curbing and gravel traps. Braking, acceleration and braking again. Straights, chicanes. Curves. Grandstands and pits. MV Agusta was born on the track. Its story has been inscribed on most famous racing tracks in the World, since the dawn of the most glorious motorcycle brand in the history of motorcycling.

RC doesn’t simply means Reparto Corse. RC means extreme attention to technical develop-ment, both in terms of design and function. It means direct connection to the riders, achieving perfection from track to track. RC also means attention to detail, because under race conditions each component is crucial and decisive. RC stands for absolute performance: a way of thinking known only by those who live to race. RC is the direct discendent of the racing experience brought to the road, crafted for the most demanding riders.

•EAS

 

Throughout MV Agusta’s history, racing bikes and production models have always been closely entwined. A fact highlighted by extraordinary successes, such as the outstanding results achieved by the Italian manufacturer in recent years in the World Superbike and Supersport championships. Ever since the F3 was first conceived, engineers, designers and the racing department have worked as a compact team: the chassis, engine and electronics have been developed with the dual goal of winning on track and bringing the unique thrills of a race bike to the road.

With the RC range, MV Agusta once again highlights its aptitude for racing: the F3 675 RC and F3 800 RC have much in common with the bikes seen at national and international race events yet are also exhilarating road bikes. Further development has made the 2018 models Euro 4 compliant. A variety of updates have been implemented to comply with the new standard, which requires a 50% cut in emissions and 48% less noise compared to Euro 3. On the styling front, new colours and graphics mirror those seen on the actual race bikes. With their red wheels – a direct Supersport offshoot – the 2018 F3 RC bikes are unmistakeable.

ENGINE
Despite the switch to Euro 4, the most striking parameter remains maximum power. The F3 675 RC touches 128 hp (94kW) at 14,500 rpm with 71 Nm (7.24 kgm) of torque at 10,900 rpm; the F3 800 reaches 148 hp (108kW) at 13,000 rpm with 88 Nm (8.97 kgm) of torque at 10,600 rpm. Some of the most significant technical redesigns on the 2018 models concern the balance shaft, the primary gearing, the intake cam profiles and the valves.

The gearbox has undergone a complete overhaul to make shifting easier and reduce clutch lever effort.

Exhaust manifolds have also been redesigned, while the F3 RC silencer – supplied by SC Project – derives directly from the unit used by the Racing Department.

As on the F3 675 and F3 800, the RC models introduce new engine covers. These enhance engine protection in the event of a collision or fall and reduce mechanical noise emissions. All without compromising that distinctive MV Agusta sound.

ELECTRONICS
The F3 675 RC and 800 RC control platform, developed extensively through racing, is based on the MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System). Key developments on the 2018 models include improved Ride By Wire performance, now with personalised mappings. Parameters on the 8-level traction control have also been fully revised to enhance effectiveness and fluidity. Moreover, the EAS 2.0 electronic shifter has been optimised for smoother shifting.

CHASSIS
A new frame mount point for the three-cylinder engine ensures increased overall rigidity, improving the already exceptional dynamic characteristics of the bike. The tubular steel trellis frame, closed off with aluminium alloy plates, is designed to offer maximum handling performance, as is evident from the wheelbase of just 1,380 mm, despite the long 576.5 mm single-sided swingarm.

KIT
Each of the 350 limited edition F3 RC bikes comes with a top-drawer kit that boosts bike performance even further, effectively making it identical to the race version in terms of equipment and appearance. In just a few simple steps, the kit can be used to transform the F3 RC road bike into a perfect track day machine. The titanium exhaust system, with carbon fiber silencer, is supplied by SC Project and comes complete with carbon fibre heel guard and aluminium silencer support brackets. Also included in the kit is the electronic control unit with a dedicated mapping to maximise the increase in performance (133 hp at 14,570 rpm on the F3 675 RC and 153 Hp at 13,250 rpm on the F3 800 RC). The rear seat cowl (for singleseat use) adds a touch of eye-catching style, as do the machined from billet brake and clutch levers. The included rear sprocket is for race track gearing, while the rear stand and bike cover are for maintenance purposes. As proof of its uniqueness, each RC comes with its own certificate of origin.

 

 

 

2018 MV Agusta F3 675 RC Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

THE ENGINE

Offered in two displacements, the F3 RC is the essence of racing. The perfect balance of technology and design, in a very limited production run, consisting of 350 works of art. The incredibly lightweight and compact three-cylinder engine has been further refined and optimized to achieve maximum performance obtaining peak power and torque for both track and road use.

F3 675 RC produces 128 hp (94.2 kW) at 14400 rpm and 71 Nm (7.24 kgm) of peak torque at 10900 rpm; The F3 800 reaches even further extremes, producing 148 hp (108.8 kW) at 13000 rpm and 88 Nm (8.97 kgm) of peak torque at 10600 rpm.

 

ELECTRONICS

The advanced MVICS electronic platform (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) allows the rider to effectivly manage the performance utilizing the Ride by Wire system together with the available multimaps (three predefined maps and one fully customizable map) together with 8 levels of traction control.

 

CHASSIS

The frame is a composite structure consisting of a lightweight front steel trellis coupled to the aluminum alloy side plates that act as the fulcrum for the iconic single sided swingarm. The suspension, Sachs mono-shock and Marzocchi front forks, have been tuned to keep the chassis in composure at the limit without sacrificing the nimble handling. The high ratio of swingarm length to the wheelbase (576.5/1380 mm) ensures maximum traction and perfect weight distribution.

 

EXCLUSIVE DETAILS

In tribute to the numerous laps and races led and won by MV Agusta in international competitions, a special accessories kit is included with each of the 350 F3 RC replicas. This unique collection of special parts – including the license plate holder and single seat cover – are assembled by hands in the historic Schiranna Factory to enhance the racing heritage of the F3 RC. Also included in the special parts kit is the rear wheel replica stand as well as a dedicated bike cover which protects the elegance of this three-cylinder masterpiece. Each individual F3 RC comes complete with a signed certificate of origin which guarantees the exclusivity of this very unique motorcycle and its unwavering dedication to advanced technology, craftmanship, design and performance.
