Thanks Tallula. I've sat on the R6 and I know what you mean. I was tip toeing on the stock model and only felt comfortable when I sat on one that was dropped 2 inches!

I'm just getting impatient even though I have much more important things to take care of first. It doesn't help seeing you and Zico receive your bikes and us in the USA who were promised delivery in April sounds more like July but even that is just an estimation.

No real answers here from dealers which makes the matter worse. I don't think it would be that bad if I had a definate date set.

It is about the same price as the oro 13 years ago. I do not see the bargain there, as it does not have the Mg stuff.

Not here in Australia, the F4 Oro was around $60K and that was in 1999! The F3 is $33800, at around half the price, that's the bargain that JSM is referring to, I have to agree with him.

You guys in Europe don't know how good you have it price wise

True, but would't you expect it to have the Magnesium bling being a limited edition and carrying the Oro name?

If I remember correctly the F4750 ORO was all carbon fibre, I don't think it had any plastic parts fitted at all, Fairings/tank/seat/airtubes and all the other smaller parts we change on std bikes were also carbon.
All the aluminium parts were Magnesium, even the crank cases were sand cast insead of die cast, it really was a 'pre production' ltd edition

Going off the previous F4 Oro offering, yes I would have to agree with you as that is what we were accustomed to.

On the flip side & with the benefit of hindsight - $60K ($65 thinking about it a little more) for the F4 Oro or $33800 for the F3 some 13 years later (allow for accumulated actual dollar value devaluation) - I still find myself agreeing with JSM's bargain assessment.

Perhaps they could have upped it a couple of grand & added the magnesium bling? Still would have been a bargain.

I have to admit i thought the F3 oro had mag swingarm etc, it does make you wonder a little where the extra money goes, a set of wheels, ohlins front and rear and some carbon, for $15k seems a little steep compared to standard bike. But compared to the F4 oro in the day it still seems a bargain.
