Should I buy the F3 800?

The MV Agusta F3 675 is my second motorcycle. It's amazing. The bike feels like it was made for me (i'm only 5'5") Much better handling and lighter than my previous starter bike 2003 Honda CBR 600 RR. After reading the reviews on the F3 800, I am contemplating buying that one as well, but I will wait till MV improves on its fueling and fly-by-wire throttle. This bike looks timeless!

The fuelling and throttle response has been fixed on the 800 and it is superb.

Mike, they were fixed a good while ago, owners on here told you so, but you only take the word of MCN and the gutter press.

As said before, don't read about it, get off the sofa and go and ride the bikes. Worked for me.

Amen to that!!!

I've been reading both UK and US tests on the F3 and B3 800. If I based my purchase decision on the totally inaccurate US tests and their self-proclaimed 'expert' observations, I wouldn't have bothered even riding the bikes. Their opinions on supposed fueling issues and reality are light years apart!!!!! MV dealers are utilizing new mapping for these bikes just like 90% of other manufacturers. I've had plenty of ducatis and aprilias that received full re-mapping due to lean surging, stalling and hesitation issues. It's an easy fix at your dealer, period. This unfair criticism of MV is ridiculous.
Meanwhile some of the UK tests barely mention anything related to fueling. I absolutely LOVE my B3 800 and have urged readers elsewhere on this site to forget the damn magazine "experts" and GO RIDE these bikes!!!!
Be a thinker and draw your own conclusions.
