MV Agusta and AMG are at the 66th IAA Frankfurt International Motor Show this week, celebrating the partnership the two brands share, as AMG is a minority shareholder in the Italian motorcycle brand.

Helping that celebration is this very colorful “Solar Beam” MV Agusta F3 800, which is just so damn yellow, we had to share it with you.

The machine isn’t anything more than a paint job, which happens to also be a nod at the Mercedes-AMG GT that rocks the same “Solar Beam” livery, but that’s ok with us — it’s a fetching color design, no?

We won’t waste more words with you: more photos of this impossible-to-lose-in-a-parking-lot motorcycle are after the jump, for your viewing pleasure.

  • Ach Mein Gott!

  • Mitchel Durnell

    As a collector, it would be pretty wild to have this and the AMG Ducati Diavel.

  • Rob Evans

    interesting they chose to do this little PR shoot with an F3 rather than F4.

  • BlueS

    Yeah, nice paint, but I’m sorry, these cross-branding exercises only help the cars and add nothing to the bikes….. I am a motor enthusiast and avid rider, but I have zero interest in German cars…… wouldn’t buy one if I were very wealthy either….

  • Superlight

    I did a version of this color two years ago on my F3 and it’s better than this.

  • That’s quite the catchy headline you have there.

  • LeDelmo

    It’s probably due to the fact MV is doing a complete revamp of the F4 next year. So, they are trying to put less attention of that platform. Which will be out dated soon. Plus, they want to show what MV is all about in the years to come. What better bike to do that than the most modern bike ever to come out of MV? The F3 800 defines the direction MV is going in the future.

  • I sit down, and ask myself, what would Sean write?

  • Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  • Ducati Kid


    You highlight that (F3 Series) which keeps cash flowing and wins Trackside (SSP).

  • Campisi

    I like my colours how I like my lasers: eye-searing.

  • Roasted Piglet

    Did they buy the leftover “Cadmium Yellow” paint from Yamaha?

  • paulus

    mmm… stickers by AMG. E-BNG version (even-bolder new graphics)
    Reminds me of the Love child of a ‘Busa and Honda CBR650F… shudder

  • AHA

    All you need add is the Kill Bill motorcycle suit.

  • Paul McM

    Is this the MV Augusta DeWalt Edition? (

  • tony

    it is! except it isnt. tough that is. maybe tough to get it to hang together…

  • Perfect WSS Livery though!

    The problem is that except for someone saying something that is either going to get someone killed or not prevent them from killing themselves
    Except for serious discussions

    Who really cares what is said in the forums, it’s all just a joke, just fun

    It’s the serious stuff that really matters

    And when you and the other writers step on serious discussions because you have personal issues with the people involved in those serious discussions then you guys are the problem. When you do it because you don’t like their opinion.what they are saying.on serious topics? Then you are a huge pronlem.

    When your own opinion is stupid and you do that? That is almost manslaughter.

    Otherwise who really cares. But when it is an important topic them I definitely do care. But I am not about to start my own website just to have important technical discussions about motorcycling free of interference from you that idiot Chris cope or the likes of Sean McDonald and Wes siler. Because most of that problem is that you will still be out there posting your nonsense..and not just you but thousands of other idiots….and tens of thousands of idiots will be riding and reading. And ultimately the proof of pudding is in the tasting.

    But a true idiot will not only get it wrong, they will also misunderstand what they did wrong and then come up with stupid non-solutions. But the fact is that there is only so much that you can do to help a true idiot. If they are really dumb enough then they are beyond saving. And the most important thing that you can do is to be honest with them and just tell them that they are too stupid to ride.

    But that would mean being rude and insulting.
    And a true idiot wouldn’t listen anyway.

    The success or failure of any one motorcyclist ultimately depends on how smart they are. Given that they decide to ride in the first place. From there all that we can really do is either agree with them or criticize them. And with some people you simply have to criticize them firmly in order for them to get the point. And if so write to someone and their main problem with what is say is stye but they have no rational argument against the facts or logic of what I say and then you clowns come behind me and delete not only what I said to that one guy that one time but also every frigging post that I have ever made on your site using that account, just how smart do you think that you are. How much are you helping your readers? You are just being big dumb bullies in your own forums. But you are still being big dumb bullies. I just cannot see wasting my time and energy on a forum where some idiotic mod is going to come behind !e and try to delete everything that I say just out of spite or because they don’t agree with one thing that I have said. They are going to win…because they promote idiocy and repress intelligence. It is not just deleting my posts, it is also promoting stupid posts from dozens of other readers in addition to their own stupid comments. I just cannot undo that level of stupidity with a few wise comments and corrections. Nor should I have to waste my time and energy doing it. Even once much less repeatedly. And I simply cannot kick you clowns off the internet. That has to be done by the internet itself…people have to be smart enough not to take you guys seriously or there is no point in arguing with you.
