New MV Agusta F3 RR 2022 features racing technology and improved aerodynamics
You’ll also notice a taller windshield and revised fenders, while the cockpit sports a 5.5-inch (140mm) TFT display with GPS and Bluetooth connectivity. Underneath the carbon-coated outfit, the F3 RR hides the same three-cylinder 798cc Leviathan that powers many of its siblings. This vicious piece of liquid-cooled machinery prides itself on its dual overhead camshafts, twelve valves and a compression ratio of at least 13.3: 1.
In its standard configuration, the engine is good for up to 147 wild horsepower and 65 lb-ft (88 Nm) of torque. However, the RR can be purchased with the optional track racing kit from MV Agusta, which consists of a race specification. ECU remap, premium Akrapovic plumbing and CNC machined accessories, among other goodies. The whole ordeal will bring the bike’s power output to 155 hp @ 13,250 rpm, while reducing its dry weight from 381 lbs (173 kg) to just 364 lbs (165 kg).
The missile is supported by Marzocchi’s 43 mm (1.7 inch) inverted hydraulic forks up front, as well as a Sachs progressive monoshock at the rear. On the aluminum front wheel, plentiful stopping power is achieved by two floating 320 mm (12.6 inch) brake discs and radially mounted four-piston Brembo calipers. To the south is a single 220 mm (8.7 inch) disc and two-piston caliper, while abs is available as standard at both ends.
If you want to get really technical, we’ll let you know that RR’s hoops are about seven percent lighter than those found on the regular F3, reducing their moment of inertia by up to 10 percent. Finally, you can choose between two lovely color options, one of which can be admired in action by clicking on the video below. The 2022 MY Gladiator has a starting price of € 21,900 ($ 25,700 at current exchange rates) on the official MV Agusta website, but the cost of their juicy racing kit remains a mystery.
