MV Agusta F3: coming to America

Dailies, Galleries -

By

After a delay attributed to sorting out rough fueling (a complaint shared among the handful of journalists who have ridden the bike), MV Agusta is wrapping up assembly of US-bound F3s at its facility in Varese. Once they arrive, pricing for the limited edition, high-spec F3 Oro will be $27,995 while the base MV Agusta F3 will be $13,495 for red/silver or $13,995 for black or white.

    They sure are pretty, but all the early ride reviews have basically concluded that the ancient triumph 675 is still better. Typical crappy Italian electronics…

    I’ve been looking forward to the F3 but, with all the delays and the general headache of dealing with this latest iteration of MV, I’ll believe it when I’m pulling one out of the crate… or maybe after it’s been out for a test ride.

    I’m really rooting for you, MV Agusta. Please, for the love of God, get your shit together.

      It must be an incredibly enormous undertaking for such a small company to put out a completely new bike in todays market, but yeah they need to unfuck themselves in a hurry.

        How hard can it be when hardley ableson paid for everything? This bike should have no problems kicking ass

          Hm. I’d ask Erik Buell about “having Harley pay for everything…”

    Any word on the Brutale 675′s? Can mine be produced before they shut the factory down for August?

    I really look forward to seeing one in person, but it maybe be after MV goes bankrupt again.

    The F3 was such a disappointment to me.

    I have a Daytona 675 so I welcomed the competition. Hell, the design was beautiful. I WANTED to like it, SO MUCH. I really did.

    But I sat on the one they had at the Progressive motorcycle show, and the whole thing was really underwhelming. The entire bike just felt really cheap, like they skimped out for the cheapest materials for everything. Just the fit and finish was disappointing. For instance, I was talking with a friend, and it seems like such a weird thing to zone in on, but the triple clamp just seems… unfinished.

    Maybe this was a pre-production version, I hope the final version is nicer, but it just left a really bad taste in my mouth.

    Of course, this is purely on the physical aspects of it. I haven’t rode it so the various mapping issues I’ve heard about certainly don’t help.

      God, I hope it was just a pre-po model . .

      This is a bike I am lusting after . . . only thing keeping me from pulling the trigger is holding out for EBR . . .
