Agostini-red is the new black, and it is so scrumptious it’s practically edible.
According to a report from RideApart, The 2021 MV Agusta F3 Rosso made headlines in releasing their Euro-5 compliant supersport model on May 27th. With middleweight Supersports bikes being the new hype, MV Agusta came to play hard, and they kicked the proverbial ball out of the park with the F3 Rosso.
MV Agusta had the bike undergo a complete system overhaul to ensure compliance with Euro-5 emission standards, with a new bi-directional flow radiator that boasts an increase in efficiency by a cool five percent.
DLC treatments were applied to the valve guides, main bearings, rods, and countershaft to reduce friction for this model’s new update, and with the Agostini-red paint, the bike now looks like it can ride as fast as it sounds.
Other features of the 2021 update include a reinforced clutch basket with the addition of a third-gen bi-directional quick-shifter and a slew of new electronics, including an inertial platform and continental ABS with cornering function.
The traction and wheelie control has also been updated and detailed, along with a very pretty 5.5-inch TFT display that is fully compatible with the MV Ride App.
Under Euro-5 compliance, the gorgeous 800cc three-cylinder engine sports a counter-rotating crankshaft and grunges up a neat 147 hp at 13,000 rpm, with a maximum speed of 247 kmph / 153 mph.
Direct rivalry with this host of specs puts the 2021 Rosso F3 alongside the likes of the Ducati Panigale V2, and the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R, but with a price sitting high at 16.400 € / $20,077.95 USD, it is by no means a bang-for-buck kind of bike.
And that’s kind of the point, isn’t it?
