Byron's sure to be hunched over a laptop after the checkers are flown, caught in his own little version of heaven. Whether on dirt, street or a combination of both, MotoUSA's newest addition knows the only thing better than actually riding is telling the story of how things went down.

MV Agutsa pulled the wraps off its 2014 F3 800 almost one year ago, creating a beefed-up version of its popular 675 Triple complete with top-spec braking, suspension and electronics components. The MV fulfills the role of true Italian exotica and the machine looks to be hauling at triple-digits while standing still. MV scored some success with the F3 800 in MotoUSA’s comparison tests, taking first-place in the Light-Heavyweight Supersport Shootout and marking a “considerable evolution of the F3 platform,” in Road Test Editor Adam Waheed’s estimation.

After taking such a commanding place among the brand’s line-up, it comes as no surprise that the F3 800 now receives the special edition treatment for 2014. MV has announced the F3 800 AGO, a limited edition version that pays homage to one of the greatest motorcycle racers of all time, Giacomo Agostini.

Dressed in red, white and green with gold accents, the F3 800 AGO features upgrades such as carbon fiber front and rear fenders and a Bosch 9MP ABS system. It also comes with lightweight, forged wheels and solid aluminum-alloy foot-pegs.

Each machine has a steering yoke plaque with certification number along with Agostini’s autograph across the top of the fuel tank. Buyers will also receive a certificate signed by Agostini as well. There will only be 300 F3 800 AGO Edition motorcycles produced and they will be available starting May 2014. Price is set at 23,990 Euros (USD pricing and availability to be determined).
