    Seriously, that IS one sweet bike. The price may be right, but I hope it doesn't lead to them getting overplayed and treated like cheap dates. Then again, there isn't an MV dealer at every Interstate off-ramp, so maybe the chances of that aren't too high.
    MV? Support? The US?
    I'm not holding my breath.

    But I am down the road from Las Vegas. Maybe they have and MV dealer.

    After watching a video of the F3 on youtube, I don't like the bike so much.

    The MV I want to get now is the F4 Corsacorta

    don't get me wrong. Its a beautiful machine.
    But all the pics I've seen were of the F3 ORO. The standard model doesn't come with as much quality bits. It also looks very small and narrow, and the black mirrors are not pretty either.

    If I'm getting an MV might as well spend a bit more and get the flagship model. Its better looking too.

    Don't. I'm not one to deny excellence to anyone, but limited manufacturer's support in this case may be a good thing, art-historically speaking

    Current issue of Road Racing World has U.S. release in April 2012 and MSRP of $13,499 so it's up $1,500 from the earlier reported $12k. Still a reasonable price for a bike that pretty. It's now jumped to the top of my short list and is in a major battle with the Tuono V4 for my next bike.

    truely a stunning bike, but I kinda wish it had the undertail exhaust. The stubby side exit is cool, but 3 pipes mimicing the lines of the tail would be killer. Maybe they want to set this apart from the F4, but sweet looking undertail exhaust is one of the biggest attractions to MV sportbikes, so why they are not using it is a bit of a let-down.
    Just my $.02

    Same reason that the Jap bikes & Ducati with the new 1199 Panigale are using the stubby low-mount exhaust........weight/mass centralization.

    Hell Yeah. I don't care how uncomfortable that bike may be. I will glady suffer the pain of riding the living Hell out of it.
