MV Agusta F3

MV Agusta F3
Is this the most beautiful production motorcycle you can buy today? At the EICMA exhibition in Milan, the MV Agusta F3 has just won the poll to find ‘The Most Beautiful Bike of the Show’. More than 12,000 votes were cast, and the F3 captured 39%—nearly twice that of the next entrant. Visually, it’s a delight: a light and compact bike, with an unusually short and narrow three-cylinder 675cc engine. The exhaust system finishes with a distinctive triple pipe exit on one side; suspension is taken care of with fully adjustable Marzocchi forks at the front and a Sachs shock at the back. Brake calipers and discs are by Brembo, activated by a Nissin master cylinder. MV Agusta reckons the F3 is a “beautiful and technologically advanced middleweight supersports motorcycle that clearly marks the beginning of a new era.” On the evidence of these images, I’m inclined to believe them. Let us know your thoughts in the comments. [Thanks Tom Stewart.]
