That's a beautiful machine; MV always impresses in the styling department. Although I do miss the "pipe organ" exhaust of the older bikes. Another reviewer said the fueling was poor and needed a lot of work. Guess that wasn't the case for this test.

Who's the gentleman with the tie and sweater vest in the photo gallery?

Actually, Tor did note less-tha-ideal fueling in his story and in the "minus" category of his conclusion. It seems like something could be dialed out before official production begins.

I think the guy in the pic you mention is Adrian Morton, the lead designer for MV who also worked for Ducati in the late-'90s and Benelli in the '00s.

No, it's Giovanni Castiglioni, Claudio's son and now CEO of MV Agusta.

I'm glad someone's paying attention! Thanks, Dennis!

Beautiful unique bike and very competively priced when compared to Japanese offerings.

Occurs to me, is the MV a good value, or are the Japanese 600s just too darn expensive? Starting to come around to the 2nd point of view on that one.

A fully sorted 750cc version of this could be the perfect sport bike.

It's all about the Euro/Dollar/Yen relationships that's making Euro bikes more competitively priced. As for your idea of a 750 Triple, I've been trying to convince BMW to lop off a cylinder of the S1000, but they don't see a market for it, especially since it would cost nearly as much to build it as the Thousand. Hopefully MV built some extra room into the F3's crankcases so they could beat the Germans to it!
