Mercedes-AMG and MV Agusta showcased their jointly designed show bike – a MV Agusta F3 800 painted in the “AMG solarbeam” colour – at the 2015 IIA International Motor Show in Frankfurt. Black wheels, further black highlights and the AMG logo on the sides of the trim equally underscore the close ties with the sports car and performance brand of Mercedes-Benz.
Alongside the Mercedes-AMG GT, the MV Agusta F3 800 show bike gleams in an identical look – in the exclusive AMG paint finish “solarbeam”. This aesthetically and technically impressive vision of the matching look on two and four wheels visualises the passion which the two brands have for motorsports and for combining aspects of technology, performance and design to achieve perfection. To this effect, the partnership between Mercedes-AMG and MV Agusta is set to continue after the IAA show in Frankfurt under the joint brand claim “Beyond Adrenaline”.
In technical terms, the MV Agusta F3 800 “inspired by AMG GT” corresponds to the series production model: the 798cc in-line three-cylinder engine generates an output of 148 hp. The motorcycle can be individually tuned to different driving conditions with the aid of four engine maps and eight-stage traction control. The sports bike and sports car therefore share common ground in terms of their technological approaches. In the case of the Mercedes-AMG GT, the driver has access to five transmission modes as well as additional individual adjustment parameters for the suspension, exhaust system or even the ESP system.
