Give me the F3 eveytime, I love the way they seem to think it's a great, out of the box, ready for the track bike.

So if MV can get the weight, gadgets and track lethality sorted for the lower priced f3, why can't they for the f4? Their .
supersport has more tech than their flagship. Hopefully this is just a sign of stuff still to come.

Great write up btw, provides a bit more insight than just a slagging session. Thanks for that

Exclamation How It Works IN Real Life Vs Magazine Hypothesis

I have an F3. Here it is:



I LOVE my F3 - it's hot to look at - Trooper Lu's Garage gave me a well sorted bike from day 1 - further maps have made the 'normal' setting map a tad better (although I never use it, maybe if I go city riding one day) & it's getting yet another map update tomorrow even though I think it doesn't need it and don't even know why but I trust Justin & the crew at Trooper Lu's Garage implictly.

It handles like a charm, sounds friggin' awesome and that's stock, I can't wait my 'special pieces' to arrive from Italy - we are creating a banshee.

Is it NOT a contest bewteen the F3 & the Triumph 675 in real life - If you want an F3 you'll buy an F3 & if you want a Triumph you'll buy a Triumph - pure and simple. And those that buy an F3 because they want it will be very happy with because it is what they want - those that buy a Triumph for the same reason will be equally as happy for that very reason.

Any bagging of the F3 used to get under my skin - now that I have had the pure unadulterated pleasure of about 1300klms of riding under my belt - it just makes me laugh, in the way that you laugh at someone when you watch them slip on a bannana peel - embarrasing but funny.

It is also noteworthy that the commentary of a non affirmative nature usually comes from those who don't own or have ridden an F3 - But had "read" all about it, because as we know, it's the exact same thing.



PS. Thanks for the original upload - Dino = Champion

Well Roy, I don't know if they are 'Good words' - but I'll certainly back them as accurate words.

The tail end has started, the Sato racing hooks nicely cover the old footpeg holes & they are useful as well for transporting. I haven't seen a tail tidy that grabs me yet plus another MV is distracting at the moment Hopefully some better tail tidys will appear and then I'll move with haste - not getting anything just for the sake of it - any decison that I've regretted was usually made on that basis.

Enjoy your ride and above all ride safe.

Cheers
Rob

I definitely like the MV more than I like the Triumph in terms of looks. Not having ridden the F3 yet I don't know what it will feel like but it is no exaggeration when I say the Triumph is a smaller version of the Aprilia I bought. It is that good. I do agree that all those electronics on the F3 are just useless and a gimmick. They should just worry about sorting the bike out and making it as good as they possibly can. And transfer those electronics to the F4 and sort that one out next because boy is the F4 getting bad reviews in the press.

That was an awesome review, thanks for posting that up. Have to say the result is as expected though when price is considered. The Triumph simply has the best hardware in Ohlins and the Brakes at a considerable lower price. Although it would seem the MV had it pipped in a good few areas, just not enough for the magazine to recommend it over the Triumph.

For us MV enthusiasts the price doesn't really matter too much, so I'd still MV it.

I've got a couple of bikes now, a Brutale and a Diavel, and when we go out for a ride on them I can totally understand the sentiments in the 'road' part of the test. If you get any MV on a smooth section of road and it just kills everything else, but as soon as the road gets a bit bumpy me and my mates always start fighting over the Ducati. I reckon it's the same way with these two machines, and yet you don't want to live without one or the other.
