Looks like the graphics might be still in committee–then again, what’s nice about MV is that they don’t seem to do committee so much. (Or maybe everything but the graphics was already nailed down when Harley-Davidson sold MV back to itself for one Euro, was it just last month?)
Anyway, the distinctive F4 rear end is in place, as is the single-sided swingarm. What’s missing is the undertail exhaust ray-gun battery; the Triple appears to exhale through some kind of R6-ish GP-style deal.
We also don’t know the rider’s butt measurements, but judging from it, this looks to be a really compact motorcycle, possibly even lighter than the sub-400-pound Triumph Daytona 675 crowd favorite. And while MV Agusta naturally wants to retain its upper-crust Euro-cachet, we’re told this bike, maybe to be called F3, should put Italian exotic ownership within reach of a lot more enthusiasts than was previously the case. We’ll know more in a couple of weeks as to details and availability, but all indications point toward soon.
It would be nice, when you have a minute, to drop H-D CEO Keith Wandell a thank-you note for making it possible.
