New 2015 F3 800 owner

Hey guys I'm going to be picking up my F3 sometime next week. I have a couple of questions:

1) on the 2015's is the frame red or black? I know on the white, black, and matte black color schemes the frame is red. The one they showed me had a black frame.

2) what is the year to year difference/upgrades between the 2014, 2015 and 2016 models? As far as brakes, electronics, etc?

3) I just found out that the battery is located under the tank. Yikes! Did anyone ever try to relocate the battery or are there any known mods out there about relocating the battery?

I expressed my concern to my MV dealer about the sprag clutch/starter issue and the crap battery. The dealer will be replacing the OEM MV battery with a Yuasa YTZ10-S. Also, according to them my 2015 has the "upgraded" starter as per the VIN number. Mike from NJ.

Hey Pogi!
1) Frame should be red for the later f3 2015. if you get the black frame it's technically a 14 model.
2) later 2015 f3 model Rear brake reservoir location has better chance of dissipating the heat from the system. Fuel mapping is better for later 2015 and up f3.
3) i think there is a guy here at the forum that relocated the battery to the front of the bike(behind the headlight location)

ENjoy the f3 and ride safe all the time!
