MV Agusta F3 Rosso Gets an IMU Upgrade for 2021

If you fancied an MV Agusta F3 800 in your garage, then we have good news for you, as the Italian brand has added the F3 to its “Rosso” line of more affordable models.

That is a good thing, because MV Agusta has seemingly done away with the 675cc three-cylinder version (there is no mention of it on MV Agusta’s website now), which normally would have taken the more affordable entry point into the Italian brand.

The move is likely part of MV Agusta’s plan to streamline its model lineup, though not too many tears will be shed for the smaller F3 675, as MV Agusta is brining a lot to the table with its similarly-priced 800cc F3 Rosso.

First off, the MV Agusta F3 Rosso brings an inertial measurement unit (IMU) to the lineup, which is priced at €16,400 in Europe (€1,000 more than the 675 went for in 2020).

The F3 Rosso is Euro5 compliant, but maintains the 800cc bike’s 145 (108 kW) power rating, though the most obvious change in this regard is the revised triple-piped exhaust with its slash-cut tips.

There is also the third of MV Agusta’s quickshifter onboard, along with a reinforced clutch basket and Continental cornering ABS package.

Moving beyond the engine, MV Agusta has refined the F3 chassis for more increased torsional and longitudinal stiffness, thanks to redesigned frame plates.

There is a 5.5″ TFT dash with a robust software package that connects to the rider’s smartphone, and includes screen mirroring for turn-by-turn directions.

You can get the MV Agusta F3 Rosso in any color you like, so long as it’s red. No word yet on US pricing or availability, but certainly the bike is part of MV Agusta’s new plan for the American market.
