MV Agusta F3 675 Mechanics
The 2012 MV Agusta F3 675 is a revolutionary motorcycle offering extreme emotions to the rider on the street and on the track. The three cylinder engine utilizes an amazing counter-rotating crankshaft, a solution that has only been previously seen on MotoGP motorcycles, together with the most compact and light weight layout ever seen on a Supersport bike.
It also has a ultra-compact in-line three cylinder with the perfect balance between advanced mechanical engineering, extremely advanced materials and electronics technology. This ultra-compact dimensions of this advanced and powerful engine, combined with its reduced weight and maximum performance, is sure to make it a benchmark
Contributing to the reduced weight and compact design is the application of the "closed deck" integration of the cylinders into the crankcase in a single shell mold casting along with the MVICS system and the use of titanium both for the intake and exhaust valves. Another unique feature is the integrated oil and water system: the pump system (water and oil) is placed entirely inside the crankcases and all of the passages are contained internally to the engine castings. This offers both performance and styling advantages to the most powerful Italian 3 cylinder ever produced.
MV Agusta F3 675 Electronics
These are only a few of the characteristics that make the new F3 675 from Augusta so sophisticated. The 2012 MV Agusta F3 675 also has one of the most advanced electronic engine control systems a supersport model. Its fuel injection uses two fuel injectors per cylinder coupled with a throttle body employing 50mm throttle valves.
The F3 675 introduces for the first time the MVICS system that allows the engine to unleash a record level of power and control in every situation. The rider can select one of the 4 maps available, or customize an additional map to obtain the power delivery desired. This is all employed to keep the F3's 128 horsepower and 52 pounds feet of torque from launching the sub 400lbs bike off the tarmac.
