The gearbox has been completely redesigned to improve shift engagement and reduce the force necessary to actuate the lever. Like on the F3 675 and the F3 800, the introduction of new engine covers on the RC model helped increase engine protection in case of impacts or falls, while also reducing noise levels. All of which without sacrificing the signature engine roar that makes every MV Agusta unique.
The F3 800 RC delivers 148 hp (108.8 kW) at 13.000 rpm with 88Nm (8.97 Kgm) torque at 10600 rpm. The principal improvements in the 2018 edition consist of the redesigned balance shaft, primary gear, clutch basket, cam drive, cam shafts, twin valve springs and valve guides.
You can almost hear the echo of the legendary Supersport World Championship tracks in its three-cylinder roar.
Rev counter well into the red zone, rider tucked into the fairing: time comes to a halt, stopped by the sheer speed of the F3 800 RC.
