    That bike is way too beautiful. Hopefully it looks as good in real life. I always thought the F4 was stunning in photos but in person, I'm not as fond of them. That little bend in the headlight kind of ruins it for me.

    It's not uncomfortable at all, I sat on one, didn't ride it but sat on it and more fitting than the RSVR was, I REALLY REALLY want it and I told myself no more sport bikes, well I told myself that but I'm not listening

    don't mind my son, he came home from school with lice so we took care of that problem. I must say that F3 felt like a fine italian leather shoe, fit my frame good too, a must have IMO now.

    So I talked with the dealership about these. Only 11 oros are coming to the US and they've all been sold already. Supposably, so have all the base models too. Also they just started production this week which means we should see them in June or July. We in the US aren't getting to many of these

    National Geographic HD channel has an episode on the MV factory building an F3. I recieved an E-mail notifying me as the the showing on 5/15/12 in North America . I was unable to find the show. If anyone knows how to recieve a copy or when this will be shown , would be appreciated. I saw the one before on the factory with Tamborini and was amazed at the way the bikes were made and designed. Thanks MV for sharing such a treat for us riders.

    Yeah, it's definitely badass although I've heard that the fueling is a bit glitchy. And yet it's still badass...
