Smile Planning to buy F3 675 2018

Hello all, Thanks for accepting me as a member. I'm happy that I could finally afford to buy the bike that was my desktop wallpaper when I was in school. I'm planning to buy F3 675/ 800 (2018 model) soon. I'm a bit worried after hearing the reviews and reliability issues about MV Agusta brand. It would be really helpful if any of you could tell me the good/bad bits about the 2018 F3 model, what can I expect from this and how difficult it would be to drive in traffic as I'll be using this mostly for the commute (10miles in SF, Ca traffic). I'm aware that a naked bike would be more convenient to use as a commute vehicle, but getting F3 is always my dream.

Thank you
Yesh

I actually bought my bike (2018 F3 675) at Moto Forza in Escondido. Las Vegas dealer wanted an extra grand for the bike. I said fuck you and bought a $50 ticket to San Diego and paid $50 for uber to the dealer and rode that bitch home. Needed it's first oil change after day 1. How often can you say that. I love my bike. I currently have over 5k miles on it with only 1 issue. Which really isn't even that big a deal, I'll get it looked at eventually. I removed the passenger pegs then got Lambda sensor errors. Was told the peg is a supporting member of the exhaust, blah blah. I am meeting with a local machinist next week to fab up a nifty bracket. So I had to put it back on. Every once in a while, usually when dealing with a substantial elevation change like going to Mt Charleston and then home, it still trips the Lambda error. It goes away when the bike is restarted. Stupid, but no biggie. Other than that it has been awesome.

Now on to the only downside. It does run a bit hot. Hotter than the other bikes I've ridden. In the Vegas summer, it is a bit of a PITA. I usually 1 foot at stops, even though I can flat foot, to keep my legs away from the sides of the bike. Does it deter me from riding? Nope. I'm 5'9, so not the tallest. If your taller, may not even notice. Esp since Cali is a bit cooler haha.

Driving in traffic isn't too bad. Does the bike hate it, and yearn to dump the throttle and enjoy some twisties? Sure. But it will handle a 10 mile commute just fine, esp since you can split in CA.

I do recommend upgrading your mirrors, as the stock ones blow donkey balls. The Rizomas may be a tough pill to swallow, but 1000% worth the coin.

Oh and MV did a whole lot of improvements for the F3 for either MY 2017 or 2018. Buy with confidence.
PM me with any questions.
Welcome!!!!

In my country alone there are multiple used F3's for sale ranging from 2012 to 2016 with 20/30/40 thousand kilometers on the odometer.

Now the 2018 model is suppose to be better in the reliability department because of normal R&D development.

If you do the propper maintenance and warm the engine up first to operating temperature before cranking the throttle.
Years of enjoyment await you.

Buy your bike, take care of it (you can't neglect Italian vehicles without suffering for it), enjoy it. Remember this, it is like a Ferrari.....small manufacturer with all the limitations that come from that small volume of production. This ain't no Chevy. You can't go to the corner NAPA store to get parts and service.

Got my F3 675 delivered yesterday. Thanks to everyone in the forum. I'm already facing this starting issue and the throttle one too. My bike won't start at once. It's taking time and multiple attempts to start. Also, when i'm in complete stop (in first gear), i'm facing issues with the throttle and the bike is turning off. Again i've to restart the bike in the traffic. It would be very helpful if any of you could help me deal with this issue.

Thanks
