UPDATE: MV Agusta F3 – Price & Serie Oro Announced

MV Agusta has announced that the price (in Italy) of the much awaited new F3 model will be 11,990 Euros (£10,557). Production has been brought forward by four months, meaning that the new model will be available in dealerships before the end of 2011.
In keeping with the tradition, production of the new F3 will be preceded by a limited edition run of 200 ‘Serie Oro’ versions.

The F3 Serie Oro is immediately differentiated by the gold frame plates and single-sided swingarm, as well as the forged aluminium wheels painted the same colour. The clutch cover and the frame plates are machine polished, while the alternator cover is completely milled from solid, providing these components with the hand-made feel that makes each MV unique. The attention to detail extends to the air intakes and cooling exits, which have a gold finish, as well as the DID Gold final drive chain. The completely hand made covering of both rider and passenger seats employs real leather and alcantara. As usual with MV Agusta Serie Oro models, a gold plate mounted on the upper triple clamp identifies each individually numbered bike.

Several mechanical parts are unique to the Serie Oro models, including Brembo radially-mounted Monobloc one-piece calipers gripping Racing discs; fully adjustable Öhlins fork, TTX shock and steering damper. The spaceframe chassis and seat subframe are TIG-welded, guaranteeing a strong, stiff structure and the footrests and their mounting plates are machined from solid, and are fully adjustable, as are the gear change and rear brake levers. The front and rear mudguards, dashboard cover, airbox side and intake covers, fairing inserts, both upper and lower chain guards, swingarm protector cover, sprocket cover, fairing lower, and stacked exhaust outlets are all carbon fibre.

Special? Yes, you could say that. We can’t wait to try one in anger.
