MV Agusta engineers have developed a specific version of their wonderful 798cc three-cylinder engine for the new Stradale. The goal was to have the smoothest possible torque delivery from as low as 2,000 rpm. Peak power is down to 115 hp at 11,000 rpm and 57.9 pound-feet of torque at 9,000 rpm, but more than 80 percent of the latter is available from as low as 2,000 RPM up. This triple, with a 79mm bore and a 54.3mm stroke, retains the standardized compression ratio of 13.3:1, plus the same 31.8mm inlet valves, 26.7mm exhaust valves, cam grind and timing. However, it breathes through 47mm Mikuni throttle bodies, each with a single injector. It’s all managed by an Eldor Nemo EM30 ECU.
