Would you buy an MV Agusta F3 800?

MV have released their new F3 800, billed as the ultimate road bike, combining the light weight and handling of a supersport bike, with the extra oomph of a superbike. But would you buy one?

No

my job is to cling to the ceiling just above them whilst holding a large axe. If I fall they die. They like me to do my job properly.

I personally would consider buying a Brutale 800, it's verry pretty, good brakes, verry nimble. But what i keep reading in reviews? Actually the engine is verry good, but the throttle response is dodgy to say the least. All those electronics with 8 settings for traction control, engine mappings with sport, rain, track mode and ride by wire throttle ? I believe MV are shooting themselves in the foot. Of course an MV would have shorter service intervals and it might wel be expensive to keep running? But it's beautiful and if you buy a Mv you take that for granted. But a slick throttle response, shouldn't be to much to ask? Damn Fuel injection. Some good old carbs would be fine on this Brutal/f3 800.

Depends on the ride and perceived value for money

It's certainly an attractive looking bike but is it reasonable value for money, easy enough to live with and does it have reasonable road manners? A great many of todays fuel injected European bikes have snatchy fueling at part throttle openings. Whilst that's ok for those who want to use the bike on the track (or ride like numpties on every road) I'd rather have a bike that has reasonable part throttle fueling

I wonder how a brutale 800 with a full akrapovich system and a pc5 remamping sorted on a Dyno would suit journalists? Actually i don't wonder, i jus't know they would love it. 00eking? Throttle response is the bad thing.

No

The bike is more suited to the track than the street. But if I was spending that much on a track only bike, I would rather get a real racing bike with a 450cc MX engine - similar acceleration, but at half the weight the race bike will turn in and corner much better.
