Mercedes-AMG and MV Agusta showcase one-off F3 800 at Frankfurt

Mercedes-AMG has 25% stake in MV Agusta. The entities will explore synergies in global sales and marketing.

Highlighting their close partnership, Mercedes-AMG and MV Agusta has showcased a jointly created one-off F3 800 sportsbike which is inspired by the AMG-GT S. The spectacular MV Agusta F3 800 concept is being showcased alongside the German sportscar at the ongoing Frankfurt Motor Show 2015.

The joint creation is merely a cosmetic exercise and there are no AMG-inspired performance tweaks to the fully faired Italian sportsbike. The F3 800 is finished in the Solarbeam yellow paint job which is derived from the AMG-GT S’ color palette. The yellow is contrasted by black accents on the fairing and fuel tank, and black finished alloy wheels. The matching yellow rim tapes further heighten the motorcycle’s appeal.

The show bike carries prominent AMG and MV Agusta branding. Despite the extensive superficial customization, the bike remains mechanically identical to the stock model.

Mercedes and MV Agusta has not talked about production prospects of the customized F3 800.

The F3 800 is powered by a 798 cc in-line three-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which puts out a healthy 148 PS and 88 Nm of torque. Mated to a 6-speed transmission, the sportsbike is capable of reaching a top speed of 269 kmph.
