MV Agusta has always been known as a powerhouse in the world of motorcycles, and 2023 is no exception with the F3 RR and F3 RC (or Reparto Corse) models in the 2023 MV Agusta lineup. While the platform is similar in these models, each has some unique features. To start, both bikes feature an in-line three, four-stroke engine with a displacement of 798 cc. The RR has 147 horsepower but if you’re looking for more power and exclusivity, you can opt for the RC with the race kit to bump you up to 155 horsepower. They share a 6-speed gearbox, a chain final drive, and a wet, multi-disc slipper clutch.
These bikes feature the best in technology and braking and include Brembo radial-type monobloc calipers with 4 pistons, a ride-by-wire throttle assembly, and a reinforced wiring harness. They also boast a 5.5″ TFT display with connectivity, so you can record and share trips, customize the bike directly from your smartphone, and take advantage of turn-by-turn navigation.
The frame, suspension, brakes, and wheels are identical for both bikes. They both use an ALS Steel Tubular Trellis frame and a Marzocchi hydraulic fork for front suspension. The rear suspension on both bikes is a Progressive Sachs, single shock
Though neither bike is heavy, the F3 RC is 18 lbs lighter than its counterpart and has the option of a racing kit that adds 8 horsepower, and includes a CNC fuel cap, fiberglass passenger seat cover, Akrapovic titanium exhaust silencer, control unit with racing map, and a carbon fiber silencer cover. CNC brake and clutch levers are also included
Keeping the tradition of Italian motorcycle manufacturers, these bikes look amazing and each model has its own color scheme available. The F3 RR offers color options of Surreal White Gloss/Mamba Red Gloss and Fire Red Matt/Metallic Dark Gray Matt. In contrast, the F3 RC offers only the Pearl White/Ago Red/Emerald Green option.

2023 MV Agusta F3 RR / RC Features
The electronics of the F3 RR exploit an advanced IMU inertial platform, conceived exclusively for MV Agusta and intended to provide all the data required for the efficient operation of the numerous controls, based on the lean angle and many other parameters. So safety and performance are always one and the same.
The bike-rider interface gains a throttle control with counter rotation to make control in mid turn more natural and to cancel out the on-off effect. The instrumentation with a 5.5″ TFT panel dialogues with the MV Ride app, which lets you record and share trips, personalise your bike from your smartphone and obtain turn by turn navigation.
The ABS, provided by Contine tal, features a cornering function to ensure safety even in turns. The traction control intervenes in a particularly precise way, also bas on the bike’s lean angle. The FLC (front lif control) not only prevents tipping over but, based on the angular velocity, it manages wheelies to provide fun, safety and performance.
