It’s a little peculiar that we bring you news today of the MV Agusta F3 800 Ago, as we already announced the bike last November, and brought you a bevy of hi-res images of the special edition machine. Although now that we think of it, MV Agusta never released anything on this Giacomo Agostini tribute motorcycle — better late than never, right?

Back at the EICMA show launch, where the MV Agusta F3 800 Ago was first shown to the public (and Agostini himself), the Varese brand promised us two additional motorcycle launches in early 2014. MV Agsuta made good on half that promise with the Dragster 800 model, hopefully this Ago special edition isn’t the other half of that statement, and MV Agusta still has something waiting in the wings.

That being said, the Tricolore & Gold paint scheme is gorgeous, and looks even better in person. Whether or not you are an Agostini fan, the tribute from MV Agusta is a heart-felt one, as Giacomo spent the majority of his GP career on the Italian brand’s machinery.

Fitted with go-fast and carbon bits from the MV Agusta Corse collection, the real eye-catcher for the MV Agusta F3 800 Ago special edition is of course the hand-signed Agostini autograph on the fuel tank. Protected by a clear coat of paint, we expect the Italian rider’s signature to be the big draw here, as the special edition F3 800 is mechanically no different from the standard model.

Only 300 units will be made, and at €23,990 a pop, this is not a cheap middleweight sport bike to own. That being said, for your money you will also get a carbon fiber front fender, forged aluminum wheels, machined aluminum foot pegs, and some other tasty bits that help drop the overall dry weight to 377 lbs (over a 4 lbs weight reduction). Is that enough to whet your appetite?

  1. Highside Specialist says:

    Blimey. that’s a beautiful motorcycle right there.

  2. Isn’t it just. *sigh*

  3. Westward says:

    MV Augusta should make a 500cc version and a 250cc bike as well, to compete with the trend of lower cc bike’s, plus they are the what Ago raced back in the day…

    However, this 800 is beautiful to say the least

  4. BBQdog says:

    @Westward: my idea. So should Aprilia and Ducati. But I think they keep us hoping and dreaming …..

  5. Lewis Dawson says:

    I love the heritage of MV Agusta, and of Ago as well, but I don’t like the hodgepodge of five main colors on this bike. That is at least two colors too many, IMO. Just my 2 cents worth.

  6. Joe says:

    I think the original 05 F41000 AGO paint scheme is by far prettier than this one… Nice bike though! Where is the Yellow and Black number 1?

  7. Slangbuster says:

    Very nice…. and looks like it would haul Italian ass-o.

  8. Wayne Thomas says:

    Perhaps someone here with engineering knowledge can explain why it is so hard(?) to design modular engines that can be made in varying cc’s to modular frames. Westward brings up a good point. Ford has a modular line of engines so why not motorcycles?
