MV Agusta F3 racerMon, 08 Oct 2012
I spotted this MV F3 race bike at the Intermot show and wanted to share it with you. The picture doesn't do the size of the bike any favours at all. It is almost microscopic in size and made the - already tiny - Aprilia RSV4 it was parked next to, look bulbous. It reminded me of a Honda RS250 in stature and stance.
This isn't the twenty-grand plus F3 Serie Oro version, the one dripping with exotic Öhlins suspension, Brembo brakes and lightweight wheels, but that doesn't stop it being a pretty little thing.
Gone are the triple-stacked cans, on with the race bodywork and a paintjob that's actually quite tasteful for a punter's effort. It looks like it'd be a bundle of fun on track..
