Hi

Hello,
I'm toying with the idea for buying a f3 675 or 800.
Would like to know more about what it is like to own one of these beauties.
Currently own a 2010 Aprilia RS 125, 2010 Aprilia RS 125 and a 1991 Honda MC 22

Welcome to the family ...!!! Haven't owned a 3 cylinder MV but I've ridden some and know people who do own them. You will be very happy....especially after owning those performance tiddlers.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Hello and welcome.

What it is to own an F3.... First of all you'll make all your rider buddies jealous.
F3 is beauty at its finest. Every angle you look at it, it looks amazing.

675 is a track weapon, while the 800 is "better" on the streets. It has more torque and that should help.
Or so I have heard.

0-3k rpm the bike can be stuttery/wobbly, so keep it above 4k at all times. 5-10k is nice and fast, while 10-15k is "hold your horses" fast.

Since this is my very first bike, I cannot comment on seating positioning.
Its aggresive DUH, but less weight on wrists than a Triump daytona for example. Feet positioning is lower than other superbikes since the bike itself is very narrow compared to the competition.
(This is all based on comments previously made by fellow F3 owners)

Handling feels superb. Braking is mighty fine.
(Honda cbr650f brakes are the only other I have felt, and that was trash. No feeling, no biting, no power...S!$T bike!. *Was my lesson/training bike)

And the best thing is after every ride, you will turn around and have another look at her....
After 5-10 minutes, you go back inside, grab a beer and some chips and have another look.
Bqs maybe I havent said this before: F3 IS DROP DEAD GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!
*Aspecially in Matt Avio Grey 😉 😉 😉

This will be my bike till my spine says: NOPE no more.

Hit the nail on the head there, except the best colours are the RC ones....

I have come down from.a GSXR1000 K7 that had a lot of money spent on it getting it to stop and handle as well as it could. I had a go on an 800 last year and was so impressed by how good it was, bought one a few months later.

It is actually more comfortable than the Suzuki, but I'm not a tall rider so find the little 800 a better fit. It's not as powerful as the 1000, you do notice the lack of grunt but it's not a slow bike by any means. I just love the way it looks and I too will keep this until my body says no.

Welcome! I recently bought a F3 675 myself and what Black_Gold_Saw said is pretty much dead on.

I come from GSXR 600s, 750s, and a S1000RR and the MV is different, but not in a bad way. Lower RPMs make it feel like it's missing a cylinder (which it kind of is), but keeping it in higher RPMs does make it more enjoyable. I've found that keeping it either in a gear lower or higher than you normally would on a 4 cylinder makes it feel smoother when on the throttle. It does feel a little lighter and more nimble when tossing it side to side in the corners, riding position is about the same, braking is just as good, the only thing that may take some getting used to is the electronic throttle. Just a little re-learning period to get used to how it responds and you'll be good to go!
