MV Agusta F3 Serie Oro exclusive models, of which a maximum of 200 examples will be built only to special order, differ from the standard version via a multitude of details, both in terms of aesthetics and engineering. The F3 Serie Oro is immediately recognized by the gold frame plates and single-sided swing arm, as well as the forged aluminum wheels painted the same color. The deliberately minimalist graphics subtly emphasize the lines of the bike, as well as identifying it. The sensuous bodywork design is characterised by a special paint scheme which accentuates its shapely form; the final result is a striking reinterpretation of the traditional MV Agusta silver and red livery. Even the rear view mirrors are painted, and the seat subframe matches the colour of the F3s tubular space-frame. The clutch cover and the frame plates are machine polished, while the alternator cover is completely milled from a billet, providing these components with the hand-made feel that makes each MV unique.
As usual with MV Agusta Serie Oro models, a gold plate mounted on the upper triple clamp identifying each individually numbered bike, completes this picture of exclusivity. Several mechanical parts are unique to the Serie Oro models, exemplified by the outstanding Brembo brake system, with radially-mounted Monobloc calipers gripping Racing discs. Fully adjustable Öhlins upside down forks, TTX shock and steering damper collectively represent the ultimate in suspension. The space-frame chassis and seat sub-frame are TIG-welded, guaranteeing a strong, stiff structure and a highly refined aesthetic appearance.
The powerplant of the new F3, an inline 675cc three cylinder, plays homage to the most victorious motorcycle brand in the word. With this layout MV raced and won an unprecedented number of races and world championship titles. This iconic engine has now returned in the form of an avant-garde middle weight supersport with performance technical solutions based on the demands of Claudio Castiglioni who is convinced that this is the ideal architecture for a middle weight supersport.
