My first thought is over the top MV Agusta bashing. I get the point he's trying to make, but after seeing all of the posts on here about the f3 in Europe, and other parts of the world, and after reading this man's article, it makes total sense to me that the F3 isn't here in the states yet. If they indeed want to expand the name and sell more bikes, they have to ship out the best product possible to the U.S. It's the biggest, most important market if you are a european manufacturer and looking to expand. Also, it's a completely new motorcycle from a small italian manufacturer. He talks about the f3 as if it's the only motorcycle/car ever to have a delayed release date. Give me a break.
HD was just repaying the favour with an eye on widening their sport bike line while increasing their European presence. Remember, it was the Castiglioni's that bailed out AMF-HD by buying Aermacchi from them way back when.How ironic, USA only likes cruisers/Harley's, and look who saved MV's hide not to long ago.
"God Bless the USA!"
