Say hello to the gorgeous MV Agusta F3 800 AGO. Giacomo Agostini won 13 of his 15 world championships on bikes built in the Varese factory, and MV will build a limited run of special edition F3 800s to celebrate.
For €23,990, you’ll get the triple soundtrack, super-sexy Ago replica paint, and the usual feast of F3 800 electronics. The much-improved (pretty much fixed) MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) features multiple rider modes, traction control and the über clever Bosch 9MP ABS system.
But what separates the AGO from the everyday 800s? A few bits of carbon fibre, some forged wheels (that save 2kg and look strangely like the 1199’s), a ‘sporty’ reg plate holder and a silver plaque that sits on the yoke. Oh, plus a signed fuel tank and certificate of authenticity, scribbled by the man himself.
If you fancy one, nip along to your local MV dealer very soon: only 300 are being manufactured and will go on sale at the beginning of May.
