MV Agusta revealed official photos and specifications for the 798cc version of the F3 675 supersport.

Lowes took the early lead from pole position followed by Kawasaki Intermoto’s Florian Marino and Sofuoglu.Fri, 17 May 2013 00:00:00 -0700
MV Agusta will introduce a larger version of the F3 675, using the same bored-out three-cylinder engine as the Brutale 800 and Rivale 800. Development of the new MV Agusta F3 800 is well underway, with the official reveal to take place in June. The short turnaround would suggest the F3 800 may share other features found on the 675, such as the chassis and MV Agusta‘s Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System (MVICS) electronics package.Fri, 03 May 2013 00:00:00 -0700
Motorsports legend John Surtees will lead a parade of classic cars and motorcycles – including Surtees’ 1960 500cc Grand Prix Championship-winning MV Agusta – in his home town of Edenbridge, England.

Surtees himself will drive the Team Surtees TS7, a F1 car constructed by his own team that debuted at the 1970 British Grand Prix at Brands Hatch.Wed, 17 Apr 2013 00:00:00 -0700

Just as it did with its four-cylinder Brutale 1090 lineup, MV Agusta announced it is adding an ABS version of its F4 models to its 2013 offerings. Available for an extra 1000 euros (US$1,311), the Bosch ABS will be available for the baseline MV Agusta F4, the more upscale F4 R and the top-of-the-line F4 RR. That’ s quite a premium, but with base prices starting at 16,990 euros for the F4 R, 19,920 euros for the F4 R and 24,290 euros for the F4 RR, MV Agusta customers might not mind paying a bit more for ABS.Tue, 02 Apr 2013 00:00:00 -0700
Inspired by the success of the ParkinGo MV Agusta team in World Supersport competition, where Robby Rolfo was in the hunt for a podium position before crashing out, ZAG Racing, from Las Vegas, Nevada, will race a MV Agusta F3 in select AMA races with rider Javelin Broderick. The team will spend the remainder of the 2013 season developing the 675cc, three-cylinder MV for a full-on assault at the 2014 Supersport season. Focusing mainly on west coast races this year, ZAG Racing will compete in MWGP, M1GP and WERA rounds that don’t conflict with the AMA schedule. They’ll also develop the bike at various trackdays.Tue, 12 Mar 2013 00:00:00 -0700
