... THAT I CAN'T TAKE HER HOME WITH ME RIGHT NOW !!!! :hitit::mouthwate:naughty::yo:

I chose white and I couldn't be happier. Lets put it this way - even if it didn't actually run it is still a true work of art. Motorcycle Art is not just a clever marketing line - it is 100% accurate. My dealer has received 6 F3s and I got to see the red/silver, black and my white one. They are all beautiful.

Yes - I did check the exhausts and yes the top one looked slightly skew on the red/silver. I couldn't judge on mine as it was carefully parked between two F4s but regardless the detailing on the bike is wonderful.

I don't plan on doing much for now other than putting on a steering dampner and the anti-theft which has arrived. Also for those who are curious it has arrived with the updated mapping.

Anyway - for all those who are impatiently waiting trust me and wait a little longer. I doubt you will be disappointed.

Unfortunately as it's a new model to HK the price has to be approved for tax purposes (we pay 35% tax on new imports here - ouch!) and then it can be registered. Hoping to get MV F3 as my registration but we'll see. So I've probably got two weeks or so to wait before I can ride off into the sunset.

Will post some pics ASAP. Planning to go to the dealer tomorrow.


:f4:

Hi, Newby from Belgium here!
In the market for a black F3 which i saw for the first time past saturday.
Awesome, really awesome when you watch (and hear) it in real live!
Still can't believe they can produce and sell these beauty's for that price.

Got you all some pics from the black and one from the white at my local dealer.... Enjoy!

Why, oh why do I keep seeing the black version going anywhere in the world but to my dealer, 60 km away from the factory?:banghead::banghead::banghead:

I went past today and he told me that he will recieve 4 in the next 2 weeks and he "hopes" to get a black one.

Apparently to get them ship those four he had to get two F4 as well...

Anyway, big gz on your new bike, hope you can ride it as soon as possible

HA HA HDuck - You Got Me!

The black F3 has turned my head, the white one has turned it the other way & I ordered a red/silver one so it would not look odd in my garage -lol.

It would be nice to own all 3 colours + the Oro ;)

BIG Congratulations - looking forward to your views once ridden.

I absolutely LOVE this quote: :laughing:

Zico, i have to correct you on that matter!
there were the 3 base F3's in the store and besides them there were 4 (!!!!) Oro's! 3 sold and the 4th was almost sold when i went out.

Outside there was also 1 red/grey on a podium and their demo-bike. (also red/grey). I got the chance for a ride but it was raining like hell, not the ideal scene for a serious shakedown....

They've allready sold 19 red/greys, 18 white's and NO black!
The black one was the first here in Belgium and they got delivery the night before their openhouse weekend. And after that weekend the black will be a direct sales hit, i can tell you that! Everybody was charmed by the black one. So was i .... :mouthwate

Hey! The front fender on the white bike looks suspiciously shiny. Is that C/F or an optical illusion? I think not as the black bike definitely has the dull plastic one. Now, was that something the dealer did or did it come that way???






See what I mean?

The one on the black has the MV sticker on it...the other one looks like a carbon one (but not the one from the Oro) so, I'd argue the dealer eliminated the sad piece of plastic...

@Steven W:
No, the front fender on the white one was optional. It was allready sold and the owner wanted the same fender as the Oro. They allready had it in stock too! Good notice, BTW!

And yes, Belgium is the place to be for the F3! 11900 Euro is a price that is crazy. If you know that the R6 costs 13.300 Euro overhere, then the F3 is really a bargain!


@ASM: it's not a sticker, its a pushed in print in the plastic....

Also, price is 13,999 swiss francs - the R6 (standard) is listed at 15,990, the 50th anniversary one is listed at 16,890 :)

Black Hawk is correct - the bikes I saw (ex the Oro which has been on display for awhile) all have the matt plastic. In the end you have to decide which bits really matter to you and which do not.
For example - my girlfriend asked me why the white F4s have matching color rear view mirrors but the F3 has black ones.
Carbon, no carbon
Gold, silver, black wheels
Racing mods - the list is nearly endless.

For those who are excited about modifying this beautiful bike and adding their personal touch - go for it! I don't intend to do much to mine but that could be combination of inexperience, lack of imagination or simple admiration for what MV have decided is the final product. But I have no issues with individuality. After all - the readers on here are already swimming against the stream compared to the general bike riding population who, on average, follow the crowd and buy something that conforms to the majority.

In keeping with my original post I must say each day waiting is like a bitter/sweet torture. My white F3 is just a few KM away from me - and yet I must be patient. Time is relative (like everything in life). Whilst 2 weeks may sound like very little, at this point in time I liken each day to climbing Everest. Ok that's a bit dramatic - but my point is simply I am SO EXCITED. I guess I feel like a kid 2 weeks before Christmas.

One final point - I took the white one as it was the only one not yet paid for. My initial preference would've been black. Having seen them in person I couldn't be happier. But I guess I would've been thrilled either way. What I can say for those who've not seen the white in person - you'll be surprised at just how beautifully it shows off the detailing on the bike.
The red/silver is glowing with MV history
The black is wicked and stealth like - I can't fault it and must say it looks better in person than online
The white shows up the "Motorcyle Art" more than the other two.
I don't think I need to describe the Oro.

Perhaps I am biased and perhaps the black one will go faster. :) Regardless I am a happy camper! (well a frustrated but forced to be patient happy camper).

Good luck to the new and pending owners - it's awesome to be part of a unique and exclusive small club!
