You did notice that these photos are sans mirrors, turn signals and plate bracket.i will recive mine in Week nr. 24
On Saturday you can drive for a fee!They better hurry up then, Stephen.
This thursday and friday they get tested by the international motorcycle press in Misano. Will be hard to do that with preproduction bikes.... :stickpoke
My point, there is usually a delay between a press launch and the bikes reaching the dealer’s. As I recall the F3’s launch was in early February and the first bikes weren’t delivered until mid-March, early April.Press launches are almost always preproduction bikes. MCN is reporting the F3 800 will be available in July @ £11,499. Can't find any details on if or when North America will see it.
I’m not sure I noticed that before but it just jumped out at me now that I have an F3 of my own.Stephen MV does that a lot with pictures. If you check some of the F4 pictures on their site they are sans mirrors as well.
The magazines will have a field day if they haven’t got the fueling right on these bikes.If the fueling is anything like the B3 800 it will be panned badly by the press. Out of all these new models the B3 800 has by far the worst fueling according to testers. That being said the F3 800 also comes standard with a slipper clutch which is a nice addition but would have been more beneficial on the 675 for those that want to race their MV F3. The new Brembo monoblocks are nice bling as well but I have read quite a few articles so far that have liked the Brembo's on the F3 better than the monoblocks on the Duc 848, D675 and GSX-R 750. All nice additions though and should make many F3 800 buyers very happy.
Stephen, you can swap M/C's and calipers all you want, but if you dont have the right pads in there, it's all for nothing, if you see what I mean.I wonder why some feel the stock F3 Brembos are better than the monoblocks used on the other bikes? Might it have to do with the master cylinder? I hope I haven’t made a mistake as I have a new Brembo master and monoblocks to put on my Molly.
