2012 MV Agusta F3: The Most Beautiful and Technologically Advanced “600” Superbike in the World?

2012 MV Agusta F3

 

Everytime the name MV Agusta is mentioned, I can’t help myself to think that it was once owned by Proton of Malaysia. How I wish Proton never sell this marquee. There are many handovers after Proton has sold it to GEVI SpA and now, it is own by Harley-Davidson of USA.

MV Agusta , with their tagline ‘Motorcycle Art’ really integrates what is being defined as the intersection of technology and art blended together. I like how the three-muffler exhaust comes out on the right side of the bike finished in the same colour as the wheel. This is different that what I always see in most superbikes; underseat or just plain cylindrical(or trioval) muffler.

The elegant three-muffler in gold

The wheel itself is the stylish and have proper look for a superbike that speaks lightweight and power. The attention to details that the engineers have put in the design of this bike are pure passion and pure Italian.

The diamond-like headlamp makes it noticeable with just a glance, but you might mistaken it for F4. F3 as opposed to F4, is the 3-cylinder engine which is more compact than the 4-cylinder engine of F4. For 3-cylinder engine, the F3 got 675cc of displacement compare to F4 at 1000cc. The real advantage of 3-cylinder is the compactness that makes is narrower and lighter, therefore handling, acceleration and stopping should be better. The overall look of the F3 compliment each other and adds each other parts strength in looks. I have heard an engineer said that ‘if it looks good, it should performs as good as it looks, but first, it needs to looks good’. I haven’t ride this bike yet, but with that statement, I hope the ride and its performance are as good as what I expect.

I never thought I were to like this MV Agusta F3 675cc superbikes. If you never know or never want to know about it, you just might missed out the great design in the superbikes world.

Price is estimated at MYR110,000.00 (my estimation).
