Hi! New to the community so forgive me if this is a topic covered previously but has anyone considered swapping a F3 or Brutale motor into their Turismo? I'd like a little more sport in my sport touring bike.

might be easier just swopping the ecu ? If one looks at engine part numbers all the engines seem to share the same components (i stand to be corrected)

It could be done fairly easily. I say fairly easily tempered with the assumption that if your asking the question, you also have the means to complete such a project.

F3 engines are cable clutch operated instead of hydraulic. There are little differences between mounting of the quick shifter and brackets etc. They are also higher revving and the head internals are different (cams,springs, etc)

You would be much better off buying a spare TV engine. Build it with upgraded parts and then swap it when you have it completed.

Welcome to the family @Yancy !! Where are you in these United States?
If you want more "sport" in your TV I would suggest getting the usual full exhaust system, intake system aftermarket parts and a proper ECU mapping to suit.
Would be a lot simpler and less expensive.

Building a spare TV motor with upgraded parts and swaping that in does sound like a better idea. Or just upgrading the motor I have without a swap over the winter. Thanks for responding.

I'm in Albuquerque N.M. All the upgrades you listed will part of the build with or without swap or other engine mods. Might call it quits there but I tend to have a hard time resisting the urge to tinker with things.

I think there are internal differences particularly in the top of the motor but maybe just switching heads and ecu plus an exhaust. Thanks for your input.

Does someone here have a good list of upgrades? I’m coming off of a Multistrada and like the TV but would like more power. If it had my Superveloce engine and exhaust I think it would be perfect.

Add an oil less turbo, forged lower compression pistons and a powercomander. That would be somewhat less invasive. Search around the forum. There was a guy who put a considerable amount of miles on his bike that did the same thing with perfect reliability.

Or just wait for the updated TV that has the bigger 900+cc engine to be revealed here very soon!
