The rumors were true, mostly, as MV Agusta has just released details on its World Supersport replica motorcycles, the MV Agusta F3 675 RC & MV Agusta F3 800 RC (mega gallery here). Unlike its four-cylidner compatriot, the MV Agusta F4 RC, the F3 675 RC is all show, with unfortunately no added go.
Changes, in addition to the paint job, include mirror block-off plates, Ergal clutch and brake levers with anti-break joints, a solo-seat cover, Ergal “running boards”, and a complimentary rear-wheel racing stand.
We doubt that will hurt sales much though, as the Reparto Corse branded F3 will be an exclusive affair, with only 100 units of the 675cc machine being produced, while 250 units of the 800cc variant will be released as well. There are surely 350 well-heeled collectors who would love to add this MV Agusta to their collection.
In case you can’t draw the obvious line from the track to the showroom, the F3 RC honors the hard work and strong season that MV Agusta has shown in the World Supersport Championship, with Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zaneti at the helm of the F3 675. Adding to that tribute, both factory riders have autographed the RC machines.
While we would have liked to see MV Agusta give the F3 RC the same technical treatment that they did with the F4 – thus blowing away the production supersport class…along with our minds – the race replica livery is fetching. We expect the Italian brand will have some meatier releases for us in Milan, at the upcoming EICMA show.
