Will Wait

Will wait for the Rivale 800 with the same motor (finances and garage space permitting) since I prefer supermotos to streetfighters, and MV Agusta should have better FI mapping by then.

It's so beautiful, an 800 triple engine is about exactly perfect for grunt and rev happy when you want it to be. Jus't read some reviews of the Brutale 675 and the F3? And every test rider is well impressed. But that ride by Wire throttle and the Engine Mapping sucks. I would definatly consider buying this 800, but with Magnelli/marelli being jus't about next door? Mv should have the Electronics sorted. The 800 is so pretty looks so nimble, and i would pay extra for the checkups at the dealer. But crap throttle response? No.
