Horsepower

Triumph Daytona 675R: 108.5 bhp @ 12,500 rpm

MV Agusta F3: 112.0 bhp @ 14,500 rpm




Torque

Triumph Daytona 675R: 48.8 lb.-ft @ 10,200 rpm

MV Agusta F3: 47.0 lb.-ft @ 10,600 rpm

The lump in the MV's horsepower curve is the oversquare bore/stroke and aggressive cams talking. From the saddle, the power curve is almost reminiscent of a two-stroke engine. It makes the MV a thrill to ride at around 10,000 rpm, but the power was difficult to use with precision. The Trumpet’s mill looks as good on paper as it feels to ride, with fairly linear power and a fat torque curve. The British triple produces within 1 hp of peak over a 1000 rpm span, and more than 48 lb.-ft of torque for a 1700 rpm span. That makes it more fun to ride on the street and track.
