I'd lay bets the F3 will be quicker than the Truimph at Marterbike 2012 It's credibility will grow over time I'm sure
I agree Pete.

I am really amazed that this thread is still going....all about one article. I said it before and say it again....MCN tested the bike at launch and complained about the fueling in the morning (sport setting). The same magazine, the same tester, the same bike later that day did not have fueling issues anymore....using the custom setting.

Same magazine, same bike, same tester, and a British bike in the test....suddenly the fueling is bad again (without mentioning what setting they used)...

Bottom line....seems to be a bit inconsistent to me to take it seriously....and as long as no other magazine also picks up the fueling, hard to believe. But as many have said before...I wanna see reports on non pre-production models, from different magazines, or independent people test-riding them....after all, these reports should all match right?

Ciao, Andreas

Stop Press News!!

I have been reliably informed that an MV Agusta F3, F4 and Ducati Panigale have been spotted doing laps on the TT course this weekend. No further information at this time but am on the case.

I may get a ride sooner than later


In the meantime Frenaugo has been spotted ridding an H1 500 Kawasaki.

Seriously? I had a great weekend & it just got better.

Awesome Tepenyaki Bar at the Rocks by Kobe Jones (do yourself a gastronomic favour everyone, if in Sydney definitely visit this place) also 71 York Street funkiest little bar called Stitch - it doesn't have a sign & you'll never find it if you are not in the know, just a door with a sewing machine & some dressmaker's models with partly stitched works in progress. Two little bar doors open to a much wider staircase leads down to the bar with old school sewing machines & tables - great vibe, fantastic fresh cocktail menu, excellent wine list, beers - music is fairly eclectic but with an overall R&B feel - funky vibe great - ah I digress, mainly as I wish I was still there - oh yes, back to mvagusta.net - it certainly has a familiar feel.

Again, welcome back Mike, your 'technical' input is certainly invaluable.
