2013 F3 675 or 2016 F3 800

Hey Guys,

Wanted to get your opinions on a decision I'm contemplating. I am deciding between purchasing a used 2013 F3 675 for $8,000 with 10,000 miles on it, or getting a brand new F3 800. I've read a lot of articles and reviews that mentioned issues earlier on with the 675 and wanted to know if it's worth even looking into. Also I'd love to hear from anyone who currently owns or had a 2013 on its durability. I'm afraid that getting a used model starting at 10,000 miles I will be spending a lot of time fixing it up rather than enjoying it.

Thanks in advance for your inputs!

fwiw: I have an F3 675 2013 and I wouldn't sell it that cheap in canadian dollars. Break-in was significant on this bike, mine has been totally reliable and awesome in every way except for the original battery and the horn wiring. Your milage may vary considering the previous owner is an unknown. A new bike will always be better than a used bike, particularly if you plan on keeping it forever.

Good luck with the bike, they don't like to go slow, hopefully you have lots of open space to let her fly.

If you have an MV, you had better get another bike. It WILL go wrong and you WILL be waiting a long time for parts/repair.

In the past 10 years I have had four new Honda's and a Triumph, problems at one stage or another with all of them.

Over the last four years, three F3's, yes problems but NEVER had to wait for any spares.

From the point of choice, if you are in the financial position to buy, the the latest F3 800 is the one to go for. Easier to ride than the 675 and the problems with the 800 (Sprag Clutch) appeared to have been rectified.

Where on this big blue marble are you?
If you have a reputable MV dealer near by and if you know the VIN# of the used bike you should be able to learn what, if any, factory updates/warranty/service work has been done on it.
Just because I have had a lot of problems with my F3 675 and have been very vocal about my experiences doesn’t mean all F3’s are bad or that you should run screaming away from ownership.
If the used bike checks out to be well maintained with known issues corrected then I agree with Trialsrider, it sounds like a true bargoon at $8 grand.
However, I suspect it’s priced low due to niggly unresolved problems and/or the current state of the company. That may work to your advantage but, only you know the level of frustration that is acceptable to you.

Love my 2013 675! The only issues I've had were the standard battery and throttle body synchronization. My dealership was proactive and covered all of it so I'm extremely happy. Parts and labor is more expensive but I do as much of it as I can.
