    MV Agusta has updated its F3 Rosso with a Euro 5 (BS6) compliant engine, improved electronics and more.

    • The bike is said to have improved power and torque curves

    • Minor changes to the clutch for better gear engagement

    • MV Agusta has added a 5.5-inch TFT display

    Around a year ago, MV Agusta revealed that it was developing a heavily-updated F3 800. At the time, the CEO, Timur Sardarov, also confirmed that the upgraded F3 will get a brand-new set of electronics.

    MV Agusta has stayed true to its word as the 2021 F3 Rosso now comes equipped with a 5.5-inch TFT display and a new IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform. The ABS, now developed by Continental, comes complete with cornering function while the TC traction control can intervene more precisely by considering the bike’s lean angle. In addition to this, the IMU also allows the updated FLC (Front Lift Control) to manage a controlled wheelie rather than prevent it altogether.


    The aforementioned TFT display also pairs to the MV Ride App. This application is available on both iOS and Android devices and gives users the ability to share their trip information on social media platforms. More importantly, it enables navigation with turn-by-turn directions. 

    2021 MV Agusta F3 Rosso: engine and gearbox

    For 2021, the 798cc, three-cylinder engine is now euro 5 (BS6) compliant. Changes to the engine include a reduction in internal friction thanks to a DLC (Diamond-like-Carbon) treatment. Another big change comes in the form of new injectors that offer more injection pressure. MV Agusta has said that it has also made changes to the exhaust to improve the power and torque curves. Power and torque remain quite similar, it now makes 147hp and 88Nm as compared to the 148hp and 88Nm the older motorcycle made.

    MV Agusta has said that it has also updated the ECU firmware to improve throttle response. Meanwhile, a new bi-directional radiator has helped with cooling. Lastly, changes to the clutch basket and an updated quickshifter have resulted in “softer and more precise” gearshifts.

    2021 MV Agusta F3 Rosso: price and launch details

    While it is too early to comment about the price, expect the new F3 to sport a higher price than the older motorcycle's Rs 18 lakh (ex-showroom) price tag. MV Agusta used to be retailed in India via the Kinetic owned MotoRoyale, but that agreement appears to have been terminated around a year ago. At around the same time, Timur Sardarov, stated that the company is looking for a new partner in the Indian market.
