The price seems unexpectedly in line. Anonymous Japanese 600 SS bikes cost about the same. Would so much rather have this.

Based on what I learned this week at the F3's American launch, I expect the B3's MSRP will be $11,500.

$11.5K for this versus under $8.5K (list, actual purchase price is lower) for the FZ8? If the name is worth $3K, then perhaps it makes sense.

MV doesn't have ABS?!? Are they waiting to see if it's just a fad?

What was ,meant by "perfect balance when leaving the factory gates?" Does somebody build a motorcycle that's so aysemetrical this is an issue?

Well, actually the MV Agusta badge IS worth another 3 Grand over a Bavarian tractor. Some people just like to have something different and the huge presence of Harleys and BMWs these daze make them common as fruit flies.

Just got word the B3's official MSRP will be $10,999. Seems like a bargain...

I agree, Kevin. I am anxious to see the new Rivale and the GT too!

There just may be an Italian bike in my future..........Finally!!

So, if MV goes mass production it will turn it into just another Porsche company. Those new Porsches like the Cayman or whatever that barge is called are abominations. It'll be sad to see MV go from a unique marque to just another mass produced line of products seeking the largest market possible.

MV used to be where you could get the only 750-I4 with gear driven cams. They were really expensive but had state of the art components and no shortcuts were taken. Everyone who loved sportbikes in the 70s and 80s especially drooled over them. Soon they'll just be another mass marketed product in a sea of mass marketing. Sad.

The cayenne is the barge. The Cayman is bad a$$.

Oops! Just got confirmation all B3s coming to America will be equipped with the accessory quickshifter, bumping the base MSRP to $11,498.
