MV Agusta is hosting it dealers meeting this weekend, and it is expected that the Italian company will unveil details on its upcoming 2011-2012 model line-up. With information coming forth about its new smaller Brutale 675 “B3”, a naked version of the companies recently unveiled MV Agusta F3 three-cylinder supersport, MV Agusta is likely to have the bike on sale as early as February 2012, with a base price of €8,990.
This puts the MV Agusta Brutale 675 squarely in the Triumph Street Triple’s price range, but bests its British counterpart with a claimed 120hp (de-tuned from the F3’s expected 140hp output). Also expected to be announced at the dealer meeting is the company’s plan for the releasing the MV Agusta F3, and news of a 201hp MV Agusta F4 “Corsacorta”.
News coming from these rumors were posted on a French MV Agusta forum, and seem to confirm what’s already been circulating on how the MV Agusta F3 will be released initially. In typical MV Agusta fashion, a limited “Oro” edition that has Öhlins suspension will first be made available. Pricing on that is expected to be around €24,000.
This means that the MV Agusta F3 Oro will be almost double of what the MV Agusta F3 is expected to retail for once it’s released (remember, this is the motorcycle MV Agusta plans on selling en masse to help secure the company’s financial future). The more down-to-Earth base model MV Agusta F3 is now expected to go on sale in December, which raises a few eyebrows on why that release date seemingly keeps getting pushed back.
Last coming out of the rumormill is that a new “Corsacorta” edition of the MV Agusta F4 will also make its debut at EICMA. The MV Agusta F4 Corsacorta is expected to have 201hp, Öhlins suspension, a €24,000 price tag (this price was quoted as 30,900 CHF, which if correct is a confusing price point – €30,900 would make more sense), and will feature an anti-lock brake system, something that will be featured on all the 2012 models.
