MV Agusta has officially taken the wraps off its collector’s edition MV Agusta F3 ‘Serie Oro’ motorcycle, showing the three-cylinder supersport machine in its final production trim. Producing only 200 units of the Gold Series, MV Agusta is building these bikes to each customer’s specifications, with a price tag upwards of €20,000 being the name of the game. Helping justify that high cost for the MV Agusta F3 Serie Oro, MV Agusta has made Brembo monobloc calipers, Öhlins forks, an Öhlins TTX rear shock, and forged aluminum wheels all stock on the 675cc supersport machine.

The premium F3 also boasts plenty of carbon fiber and a sophisticated electronics package, though some might find the price hard to swallow in the middleweight sport bike category (even if there are nice touches like painted mirrors and intake grills). Accordingly, MV Agusta has also announced the MSRP for the base model MV Agusta F3, with European pricing set at €11,990. Production for the MV Agusta F3 has also been moved up by four months, meaning bikes will be in the hands of dealers by the end of this year. Photos of the 2012 MV Agusta F3 ‘Serie Oro are after the jump.

    I’m sure a lot of R&D had been performed, but it seems risky to have the exhaust that close to the rear tire.

  2. Jake Fox says:

    It’s very pretty, I’ll give it that. Still, you could buy the Daytona 675R for about a grand less in Euros than the base model of the F3 and you would have many of the same upgrades of this collector’s edition. Not to mention Triumph is a lot more likely to still exist as a company in a couple years.

  3. Andrew says:

    Honestly it doesn’t look that sweet to me, a bit too ‘Transformers’ for my taste. I was expecting something more elegant and less origami.

  4. Wil says:

    So Jake Fox – I’ve got my bases covered. My Street Triple will be sharing garage space with a regular-strength F3 one day. One bike to last a while, one bike to admire long after the company goes under! (not that in any way do I believe MV Agusta is going to be defunct… again.)

    There actually seems to be a fair amount of disagreement about the looks. Some want larger fairings a la the F4, some hate the biposto setup on an Oro, many detest the organ pipe exhaust down low and not under the seat. I can kinda see their points, but damm! it’s pretty to me. If pic 6 was taken a little further back to get the whole tank… that’s a money shot.

  5. Jake says:

    I think it’s pretty hot. If you don’t like the fairing style just wait and see what the Brutale 675 will look like. Drool – worthy I’m sure.

  6. Will says:

    “…MV Agusta can formally announce that the retail sales price in Italy of the much awaited new F3 model will be 11,990 Euros”

    11990 euro = roughly 17k US

  7. Jake Fox says:

    Don’t read too much into that Will. European pricing does not convert directly to US pricing. I think it might have something to do with having to add the VAT in the Eurozone. As an example, the Daytona 675R I talked about earlier costs 13,190 Euros in Italy which converts to $18, 545 but the MSRP for one here in the states is $11,999. Time will tell but I would expect the base F3 to cost $12k or less.

  8. Simon says:

    There is only one “MV Red” color IMO… dont like the cherry red. The rest is amazing. I’ll wait untill the standard F3…

  9. Jeram says:

    Mv seem to have made the same error as the Japs…

    they thing..

    “oh jeez we better make this bike more modern for next year”

    “soooo how about we add more lines and complexity to it”

    now it looks like a hatchback with a ‘fully-sick’ body kit on it, compared to the original.
    just like the GSXRs and other rice rockets

  10. Faster1 says:

    you bike snobs are a riot

    This thing is drop dead gorgeous,, everything on it. It has the proper go-fast pasts and it’s just enough original without it being a mistake. I can’t get enough.

  11. Steve says:

    I’ve got to side with Andrew on this one.
