MV Agusta’ main focus is to keep the power unaffected of the bikes while making them comply with the new norms.
MV Agusta has revealed its plan to tweak the engine of a few of its models to satisfy the new emission norms. On the list are the MV Agusta F3 675, MV Agusta F3 800 and the streetfighter MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR. All the engines of MV Agusta motorcycles are three cylinder units and the changes to be done will alter the gas emissions and noise. While doing all this, the performance of these motorcycles won’t be affected, as claimed by the company.
The noise reduction of the bike will be accomplished by adding a new type of balance shaft which will consist of more tooths on the rotors. Also, the covering of the engine will become thicker resulting in low noisy operation. Components which will be tweaked are the intake camshafts, intake valves, twin intake valve springs and valve guides for making the necessary improvements. The exhaust setup will also be used with the new characteristics to make it sound calmer.As for the MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR, its low-end torque will be improvised by incorporating a revised set of the exhaust valve.
As reported by MV Agusta, execution of all these technical changes will curtail the unwanted gas emissions by 50 percent and noise by 48 percent as compared to the assemblies used for Euro III norms. The previous phase of changes to meet the environmental norms made the MV Agusta F3 800 degrade in terms of power by cutting down 4 BHPs. This time, the Italian bikemaker needs to try its best to not compromise on power in the urge of meeting new emission norms.
In India, among the motorcycles which will go through changes for 2018, only the MV Agusta F3 800 and MV Agusta F3 800 RC are sold. MotoRoyale is the distributor of MV Agusta motorcycles in India which is owned by Kinetic group.
