I have Oro gold wheels and frame plate on my F3 look great and I get lots of complement about it
Indeed, will be swapping that stuff out for the same black titanium hardware i have on my Panigale... will either powder coat the engine protection and sprocket cover, or replace with rizoma stuff in black.. But will powder coat the wheels in Gold, as it should of been.

Just received the bike today from the shipper, and she looks to have arrived no issues.
Right off the bat, i noticed the brake lever was about as squishy as they come, but figured i would give her a little test ride.

No major surprises, fueling felt like a stock bike (this bike has a AFM Slip on), will be putting in a DNA Air filter this weekend.
Bike felt well balanced, even with the springs not being suitable for my weight.
The front brakes need bleeding BIGTIME, didn't chance any kind of braking as the lever was pulling back to the bar.. Will be swapping on a Brembo 19RCS master so not to concerned... more than likely needs bleeding and that's it.
Seating position felt a bit more IN the bike compared to my daytona & panigale, so something new..

Really looking forward to getting seat time on the bike and enjoying her on the street and track... Not sure how to say this but the bike is NO triumph sounding triple... kinda sad about that.. Oh well.

Yes...My '12 D675R with the Arrow had a pleasant wail like no other.

Barring riding on track (which i do) there is more to a bike than just speed.. Thus the reason i bought the MV F3.

Nice looking bike with some nice goodies on it already. Good idea on ditching the gold though... Funny that, I love the gold wheels/swingarm on the ORO, but those gold accents from the PO are a bit much.
