In order to make its motorcycles Euro 4 compliant, MV Agusta has provided updates to all its inline 3 cylinder products. This act will allow the Italian manufacturer to make its products future proof and sell beyond 2018.
The motorcycles which have received the update include the F3 675, the F3 800 and the Dragster 800. All three of them are powered by inline 3 cylinder engines. They now get a new balance shaft, oil and water pump, drive gearing and primary gearing, redesigned intake cam and valves, new valve guides and new intake and exhaust springs. All these internal changes make the bikes cleaner and quieter. The new motorcycles also feature a larger silencer with a new cat-con (catalytic converter). MV Agusta claims that these changes have resulted in a noise reduction by 50% and exhaust gas emissions by 48% when compared to the outgoing Euro 3 engines.
Apart from these internal changes, the F3 675 and 800 both feature a new frame mounting point that MV claim improves the chassis by increasing torsional and longitudinal rigidity. There’s also a new electronic package with new fuel maps and traction control setups.
With all the updates, the power figures for these inline 3 cylinder motorcycles are as follows:
MV Agusta F3 675 – 128 hp
MV Agusta F3 800 – 144 hp
MV Agusta Dragster 800 – 140 hp
