Hi all,

after a long time waiting for my red/silver F3 where I was told of many different delivery dates and promises, my F3 finally arrived on Friday!

I ordered my bike last year in September and was promised to have it on January, at least on bike seasons begin! Nothing was true and I started to check out for alternatives...

My dealer called me yesterday with a very strange sound in his voice. He said that my F3 arrived.....but......wrong color !!!!! :yo:

I was first shocked and ask what happend. I was in Milano Italy to see the F3 in real after I ordered. There was only the white and the red/silver to see and sit on. The black one was not available at that time, so I deceided to stay for the red/silver as the white one was not my favorite.

30 minutes after the call I arrived at my dealers office to burn down anything in my way....had some classic music in my car ;-) Thanks to god !

When I came in the !black! F3 stand there and flashed me completly ! It looked so damn hot !!! The second I saw here I decided to go for black now and no longer wait for another F3 in red/silver. I guess red/silver is more traditional but black looks a bit more sporty (IMHO).

So I paid the bike some minutes after and setup anything for next week!! Its mine !!!

I had the chance to do a short round with the black F3 and again I was flashed. What a sound !!!! The mapping is really a bit strange in lower rpm but not as much as it was complained by some magazines. Also the clutch is not that bad....When the bike is on speed, it is amazzzzzzzing. Second gear full speed wheel up (a little) :naughty:!! TRUE !! And again.....that sound is fantastic and loud ! I like it soooo much ! So now the bike has 10km and will be in my garage on I guess Monday.

I am so happy !

My dealer confirmed the new mapping for the next 2 to 3 weeks! He told me that the original mapping was neccessary to fit some europe regulations about emission and so on. He also told me that another mapping will be available together with a modified exhaust component. The bike has a lot of power yet....wow, how will it be with all the modifications ? GREAT

As you guys could see, I am so happy!!

Hope you like the pictures...

Cheers

How I envy you, I am still waiting for the call, looks like next month and with a bit of luck the fueling problems will be resolved.
Plenty of sleepless night at the moment, the only good news is the weather, being selfish, I hope it last for the next couple of weeks or so

I did...couldn't tell from the pictures otherwise I would not have asked....the bottom pipe seemed to be slightly askew.

:nutkick::argue::moon:
Well done
If you don't like it, or have not seen one, why bother posting something like that.
Go see for yourself, and if you don't like it you can just move on, without trying to insult this gentleman's new bike.

If you would care to re-read my post - I asked if his bike had aligned pipes or not as others have reported this cosmetic flaw...I in no way insinuated that his bike was defective or that I did not like it. As far as seeing his bike, it would make my question redundant :eek:nthecan:

I have to wonder why you post such drivel when all i did was ask a f**king question.

Crikey, I thought the Swiss were supposed to be neutral!
Ah well....
As for the exhausts being askew, lets not blame Ed (get it, askew / Eskew...Ed Eskew - see what I did?)

Never mind...
It's a great looking bike, take care and enjoy.

How come that every1 is getting the black version and not Italy??? I order it 6 months ago!

Actually one arrived, in Rome (I live in Milano) to a dealer that had no orders for it! it has the quickshift already on... it was supposed to be mine, and not sitting in a damn random window.

I swear, if next week is not here I'll drive those 60 km that separate me from the factory and I'll chain myself to the doors until they'll produce the one that is rightfully mine :thewife::thewife:

Hi,

Firstly BIG congratulations on your new bike & thank you so much for the pics - beautiful! Thrilled to see you so happy, enjoy it in good health :yo:

I am a red/silver man through & through & I'll tell you what, the black one from when I first saw pics has seriously turned my head! I understand perfectly how you 'changed your mind' ;)

I was lucky enough to hear an Oro being run yesterday at Tropper Lu's Garage open day. The last time I heard that engine was on the in the test room at the factory in November 2010 & OMG it sounded even BETTER if possible. Like you I can't imagine what it is going to be like post mods, which mine will definitely get. :naughty:


Cheers & thanks for the post - please don't forget to give us your thoughts after you pick it up. Congratulations again on the happy ending through chance. :)

Ignoring the last go-arounds regarding what I said...

Congrats on getting the lovely bike :mouthwate (I am hesitating between the black and the red myself) and I am very happy that there are no problems found so far.

Please, please, please give us a review once you get her and again after the remap so we can see what kind of improvements that brings you!

:smoking:
