Just curious as to why on my VIN tag on the side of my bike does it say MV Agusta F5? probably a good reason for it but still...

I believe the model designation was revised to F5 when the 1000 was released

My understanding is that the 1000 was to be a completely new bike, hence F5, but the money wasn't there to put it into production and the cheapest option was to make a bigger version of the 750 [styling-wise]. Must confess, I'm happy! [although I'm very curious to know what Mr Tamburini had in store for us!]
