MECHANICAL AND ELECTRONIC REVOLUTION
All the three-cylinder engines of the 2021 MV range have received many technical updates. Those on the F3 RR, in particular, have been concentrated on achieving the best performance ever.
The lap time, that’s its focus, has been achieved also counting on the valuable experience MV engineers honed on Moto2 World Championship, a specific challenging scenario characterized by an obsessive attention to aerodynamic details and chassis excellence. All this, of course, without forgetting the pleasure of road riding, which has been among the core values of the entire three-cylinder range for 2021. The sporty thrill takes however a great prominence. To be precise, its performance has been further improved thanks to the meticulous aerodynamic study as well as to the addition of functional technical elements, which help to set the bar in terms of maximum efficiency.
CHASSIS: EXCELLENCE GETS EVEN BETTER
The world-renowned chassis, recognized since its début as the best in the segment, consistently remains a reference point. But that’s not enough.
The F3 RR goes even further. The redesign of the frame plates, with particular focus on the swingarm area, has led to an increase in torsional and longitudinal rigidity, a solution that have not only contributed of enhancing riding precision, but also increased the rider’s feeling. The suspension setting is specifically conceived for this new RR and has been adapted to the new rigidity to maximize the effectiveness for both excellent on-track performance and outstanding on-road ridability. The new rear rim features a specific design and has been obtained through an innovative casting
process with a weight saving of 7% and, consequently, a reduction in inertia of 10%. The result? Lower unsprung weight, for a more rewarding riding experience.
ENGINE: EVEN MORE ADVANCED
The “Trepistoni” engine has undergone a constant development activity which has led to a significant improvement by reducing internal friction and increasing the smoothness of riding without, however, sacrificing its intense character.
Despite full compliance with Euro 5 regulations, the overall refreshment led to confirm its 147hp engine among the most powerful not only within its category but also in the 800s. All this is the result of a careful fine-tuning work on the timing system by adopting new valve guides and DLC treatment for the tappets.
The titanium valves allow to reach very high rotation speeds, while the newly designed main bearings reduce inertia and friction and further enhance reliability. The exhaust system has been entirely revamped, from the manifold to the silencer, to satisfy the power curves. Torque and power are now more generous at all revs, without however sacrificing the proverbial MV Agusta’s threecylinder acceleration as well as its unmistakable tune. The engine is still very powerful yet even more affordable. The new injectors are now capable of managing an increased injection pressure of 0.5 bar. ECU firmware, management logics and the engine control algorithms were also renewed, all this helping the rider to take advantage of an even more precise and refined throttle management. Additionally, to improve cooling, a new dual-flow oil radiator has been adopted with a consequently enhanced efficiency of 5%.
SHIFT: MORE PRECISE AND FASTER
Even the clutch has undergone some changes. It in fact features a reinforced hub, which has been improved in terms of manageability and reduced noise. The Quick-Shift EAS 3.0 with bidirectional function is in its third generation and enhances the quality of shifting, now smoother and more precise courtesy of new sensor.
ELECTRONICS: MORE COMPLETE THAN EVER
From the dashboard to the ABS as well as the controls and the firmware of the control unit:electronics of the F3 entire family marks a clear breakthrough compared to the past.
The début of a brand-new IMU inertial platform – designed and developed in Italy by the Milan-based e-Novia exclusively for MV Agusta – allows for extremely precise management of all controls according to the lean angle by reading the position of the motorcycle in space. The new ABS by Continental features cornering function while the traction control can operate more precisely, also taking into account the inclination of the bike. Also
thanks to the IMU, the renewed FLC front lift control takes the wheelie under control instead of entirely preventing it. Everything is managed by a 5.5” TFT dashboard, able to communicate with the MVRide App. This latter (available for IOS and Android) not only allows to record and share journeys through the main social platforms, but also offers the opportunity to personalize the bike in every aspect (engine settings included), directly from the smartphone. Thanks to the mirroring function it is thus possible to navigate turn by turn, a further function to the recording and sharing of the route. Lastly, the handlebar controls features a new right-hand block with launch control button and a left-hand block with a practical joystick for browsing through several dashboard menus.
The F3 RR has undergone specific in-depth study and tests in the wind tunnel which led to the integration of some aerodynamic elements into the fairings. These interventions serve a dual purpose: enhancing performance and also increasing engine efficiency.
The appendages, positioned on the side of the fairing and made of forged carbon, for example, are capable of producing a load of 8 kg on the front end at 240 km/h. These components are part of an aerodynamic package, which also includes higher windshield, new carbon fairing sides and new mudguard which, among other things, also improves the airflow to the radiator. The latter elements have been designed to further improve CX coefficient, thus fully compensating for the greater resistance to advancement caused by the winglets. In brief, the F3 RR did not lose in maximum
speed but gained in front end load, also reviving impressive feeling and cornering performance. This is another example of how on the F3 RR every technical detail has been designed exclusively to increase performance. The new footpegs, characterized by a further dose of grip, and the new anti-slip coating for the saddle are still part of the revolution.
THE RACING KIT
MV Agusta F3 RR is an extremely complete and performing bike. Since everything can be improved, the customer is therefore offered the opportunity to embellish and transform the stock MV Agusta F3 RR into a unique bike with a special kit that includes additional CNC machined components (such as fuel cap, brake and clutch levers) along with a seat cover that turns the bike into a single-seater. The real gem of the kit, however, is the Akrapovič titanium exhaust – road approved -, supplied with a dedicated control unit, which boosts the power up to 155hp and reduces the weight from 173 to 165 kg (dry).
