I got that issue today also. Overwhelmingly positive! (except for the gearbox)

This bike smacks of " Spirit of Jota"

Carl,

It depends which part of MCNs report you wish to highlight...

Quote :-

" On the go the MV's chassis is fantastic" Yay !!!

" When the road is smooth, the revs are up and the triple is singing, the MV is fabulous to be onboard" " Yay !!!

" bang the throttle open and the F3 comes alive. The sound of the triple as it builds up through the rev range is amazing- it's rawer than the Triumph and aggressive in it's note. There is a business to the motor that makes it feel more alive than the Triumph and more eager to rev. " Yay !!!

and then there was some drivel about riding at low speed.and across the car park..which was a headline grabbing revelation.

" Flawed Masterpiece" Come on fellas read between the lines....This is going to be quite a machine..Why have a Trumpet when you can play a whole symphony with the F3..

MCN please note " This motorcycle is not a twist and go scooter "

It's a bad boy just like the Jota..Well the Jota is made no more.." Long Live the MV Agusta F3"

Just read the test in Motorrad! There was nothing about the bad fueling issues.
Great motor+brakes+suspension.

Apparently MCN got the only F3 with fueling issues. MCN is also the only magazine based in the country of the F3s biggest rival. A coincidence I'm sure!
