Hi all!

I know the ORO was limited to 200...however, I like the upgrades built into it that are missing on the standard F3 - all of which I would add to the standard bike when I get one.

What I would like to know is if anyone heard rumours that MV would continue limited run ORO F3s in the coming years - sort of like Ducati do with their bikes 1199 standard, 1199s, 1199 tri-colore???

:wtf:

I think that highly unlikely. What we will see is an upgrade model with the Ohlins suspension and some carbon bits. Also, I’d bet money that MV will do an “Ago” type limited edition.

Stephen, I hope you are right - that MV will do a "tweener" F3 in due time with Ohlins suspension, forged wheels and carbon front/rear fenders/exhaust heat shield. Somehow, though, I don't think they will, so I'm intending to create my own.

If MV were smart, they'd do an F3 RR with the Ohlins, forged wheels and a few carbon bits for the price of a base Panigale, or $17,999. That would make more than a few prospective (Ducati) buyers take pause.

I'm not sure that a prospective 1199cc (larger capacity) buyer would be swayed to a 675cc based just on price and some bling.

MV seem to have steered away from their normal route of ltd editions with the latest F4, yes there is the F4RR, but no Ago, Senna, Tamburini, CC, etc.

So maybe a F3RR to follow further down the line? also after talking to MV's Goggi and again at the NEC to an Itailan who's name escapes me the 675cc can go to a bigger capacity, apparantly not to 1000cc but somewhere around 900cc.

So maybe a whole cc range of F3 and B3 will appear, probaly (IMHO) a 675cc and 900F3, but with the B3 I would expect the 675cc maybe a 750cc and 900cc, this would go well against Ducati's monster line up :)

Dawg, I beg to disagree. Since all the Superbikes are way over the top in performance for the street, an F3 with all the high-end components would present an interesting choice to prospective buyers versus the 1199 - a "finished" middleweight for the same money as a "base" Superbike. I wonder if you've ever ridden a bike with Ohlins fork/shocks and lightweight wheels? My 748R (with PVM magnesium wheels) was a lot of fun and especially so when pushed hard at a track day event. It isn't just "bling" - machines with high-end parts perform better. And it isn't just for racers either; the bike feels better all the time and gives the rider that extra bit of riding confidence that whatever comes up, you can handle it.

I agree...I would prefer the F3RR over the 1199 base...however, it would have to be at least 1000 cheaper.

Not sure on this one. Be kinda hard to stir away from the 195 hp and 100 ft lbs of torque. The new duck is SICK. I would like to buy one a few years from now that is a theft recovery or crash from an insurance company and just put some race bodywork on it. Then take it to the track. Coming in at 155lbs. The duck wouldn't even know I'm on its back. Lol

tough one to call...but i prefer to hit a bikes limits (or at least come close) before I do...with 195hp, I chicken out MUCH sooner than the bike does!

ondgas, I agree it wouldn't be an easy decision between a tricked-out factory F3 and a base Panigale (or other litre-bikes), but it would be an interesting option. Most (if previous behavior counts for anything) would go for the big horsepower numbers of the 1199. Some, however, would prefer the sophistication of the F3 with Aftermarket pieces, especially when you consider that the extra engine performance of the litre-bikes can't easily be explored in the street setting.

add to that the fact that some would put the performance bling on the 1199 anyway raising the cost by about 3.5 grand for the suspension alone.

You are correct. The duck is a straight up race bike with lights. Its cheaper than an f4rr. And at $22,000 it comes with fully electronic adjust on the fly ohlins suspension. Had the opportunity to check one out at a motorcycle show in charlotte NC. If I had 22 grand to piss away right now id be waiting on one of those and my f3. Both bikes are beautiful and race oriented. I love raw power and razor edge handling. Prety much my drug of choice. Lol
