An MV Agusta F3 800 will join the 675cc triple in the Varese firm's range next year, according to this teaser image uncovered by SoloMoto.
Using a more performance-oriented version of the engine that powers the Brutale 800 and Rivale, the 800cc F3 has already been well under development since the end of last year with the Italian firm aiming for a 2014 launch.
Taking on the middleweight sports bike category, that features the Ducati 848 and Suzuki GSX-R750; the machine will see the 800cc triple housed in the F3 chassis and retaining the advanced electronics that included traction control, ABS, ride-by-wire throttle and MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) technology.
Performance-wise it is expected to pump out around 150bhp with the lightweight package weighing only 175kg – almost the same as the supersport machine. The 675cc MV Agusta F3 develops 126bhp.
