In what can only be described as a terse press release, MV Agusta has released two teaser photos of its upcoming MV Agusta F3, the three-cylinder supersport bike that Claudio Castiglioni hopes will save his company. Known to be using a three-cylinder motor, it has been previously reported that the MV Agusta F3 would be a 675cc machine, just like the Triumph Daytona 675. However the Italian brand has confirmed that it will be using a 600cc displacement for its street machine, while giving us a glimpse of the bike without its F4 camouflage.
We can’t see much from the photos we’ve been given, but it looks like Motociclismo.it got a full series of shots. Unfortunately, the photos that would show the front profile and side-mounted exhaust have been blurred, making those about as useful as ours. What we can see is that the undertail exhaust is out, and that the bike has at least a partial trellis frame. The F3′s fairings look very nice, with gill slits on the side for cooling. MV has also found a way for the iconic tail section to look in-place, even without its four exhaust tips underneath.
MV Agusta hopes to sell the F3 for €9,000 in the EU, which should come out to be $9,000 here as well in the United States, if MV Agusta’s previous pricing schemes remain in place. Castiglioni hopes to sell 10,000 units next year, which is a lofty goal, but at this price point the Italian company might just pull it off. Expect to see a naked version of the F3 sometime soon, with a possible unveiling of the “Brutalina” at the EICMA show in November.
