With the riders wearing MV leathers, it looks like they are not trying to hide it. I think 2011 may be a little soon for production. Maybe mid year 12?

I saw drawings of unnamed but clearly MV F3 & Brutale (several months before the release of the current 2010 models) and they were light years ahead in terms of modernization of the design. Kinda like the minimalist RSV4 and R6 but with distinctly MV styling. I drooled at the drawings while the old school crusty MV purists cried foul.

Hopefully this is what the F3 will look like - the drawing was awesome!

Hi,

Any of you guys think a brutale 3 cylindre version will follow?
Also, why so much excitement about the F3?
Smaller engine, less power etc etc

Isnt MV supposed to be about exclusive big ultra performance engines and designs?

I dont know if the analogy applies here....but as i recall:

Porsche doing a 4 cylindre engine that was not such a big success. They went up to 8 and that did not last long either.

Is the objective of MV with the F3 to capture part of lower segment of the bike business?
Unless the F3 engine offers a real technological innovation and the bike design continues to stand out, i dont know if this is the right way forward for MV...but am sure Mr CC knows better.

Just wondering and like most of you curious but not too excited about a smaller engine.


Regards

Michael

If the intention was to go racing Supersport would be a good place to start.

4 cylinder engines are limited to 600cc and twins to 750cc. I assume three cylinder engines are limited to 675cc?

MV Doesn't make a 750 any more so I think a 675cc triple and a 1000cc inline 4 make sense.

There's a hole in their line up (just like Aprilia a few years ago had a 1000cc superbike as their only streetbike - they've since created the Shiver platform to fill that in). Not everyone wants a 1000cc. Makes sense to me.

Truth of the matter is 90% of riders can go faster on the race track on a well set up middle weight then a liter bike. I think a little more choice is a good thing. I'm not saying they should start making scooters and quads and generators but I think a beautiful MV 675 is a great addition. A heck of a lot of middleweights get sold and one that they could race makes sense.

IF (or when) an F3 reaches production, a naked variant WILL follow. For a company this size it is simply a matter of maximizing their investment--They already spent all the R&D on the faired version, they can sell more units by stripping off the bodywork and selling it for a few grand less without canibalizing sales of the faired bike.

If you don't understand why an F3 is desireable, you don't ride enough curves (and likely your ego is overinflated).

Michael

Because we want to ride it as soon as posible.
Just imagine the best powerful/weight compromise with the most exploitable engine and you get a perfect 3 cylinders 675cc engine!!!

Powerfull! Maniable! Lightweight! Sharpriding!

Plus some medium/young riders could be looking for something close when licking on a street triple or duke.

That's my 2 cents.
