Black Hawk is correct - the bikes I saw (ex the Oro which has been on display for awhile) all have the matt plastic. In the end you have to decide which bits really matter to you and which do not.
For example - my girlfriend asked me why the white F4s have matching color rear view mirrors but the F3 has black ones.
Carbon, no carbon
Gold, silver, black wheels
Racing mods - the list is nearly endless.
For those who are excited about modifying this beautiful bike and adding their personal touch - go for it! I don't intend to do much to mine but that could be combination of inexperience, lack of imagination or simple admiration for what MV have decided is the final product. But I have no issues with individuality. After all - the readers on here are already swimming against the stream compared to the general bike riding population who, on average, follow the crowd and buy something that conforms to the majority.
In keeping with my original post I must say each day waiting is like a bitter/sweet torture. My white F3 is just a few KM away from me - and yet I must be patient. Time is relative (like everything in life). Whilst 2 weeks may sound like very little, at this point in time I liken each day to climbing Everest. Ok that's a bit dramatic - but my point is simply I am SO EXCITED. I guess I feel like a kid 2 weeks before Christmas.
One final point - I took the white one as it was the only one not yet paid for. My initial preference would've been black. Having seen them in person I couldn't be happier. But I guess I would've been thrilled either way. What I can say for those who've not seen the white in person - you'll be surprised at just how beautifully it shows off the detailing on the bike.
The red/silver is glowing with MV history
The black is wicked and stealth like - I can't fault it and must say it looks better in person than online
The white shows up the "Motorcyle Art" more than the other two.
I don't think I need to describe the Oro.
Perhaps I am biased and perhaps the black one will go faster.
Regardless I am a happy camper! (well a frustrated but forced to be patient happy camper).
Good luck to the new and pending owners - it's awesome to be part of a unique and exclusive small club!
