MV Agusta F3 Serie Oro

MV Agusta F3 Serie Oro

New photos of a high-end gold F3 have been leaked, wearing ‘Serie Oro’ decals that continue MV Agusta’s use of the high performance sub-brand

The MV Agusta F3 ‘Serie Oro’ or ‘gold series’ special edition has been outed ahead of the standard bike’s official launch before the end of the year, which has been confirmed at €11,990, or about A$16,000 at the time of writing.

However that figure is only an indication of the exchange rate and we expect the actual price will probably be closer to $18,000, as its closest rival will be the $15,890 Triumph 675 Daytona R. MV Agusta is not a volume manufacturer and is expected to charge more for its motorcycle in Australia than the Triumph’s supersport triple.

Back to the Serie Oro model, and the Italian marque has not divulged the price of the top-shelf sports bike, but it’s expected to be very pricey, around $30,000. MV Agusta has confirmed that only 200 units will be built which means Australia will probably only get a handful of the rare bikes.

The MV Agusta Serie Oro models will be launched ahead of the standard models and will be on sale in Europe before year’s end.

The rejuvenated Italian marque has a solid track record with its Serie Oro models, as the F4 Serie Oro from the late ’90s was followed by the Brutale Serie Oro in 2004.

The MV Agusta F3 Serie Oro will run higher spec Brembo monoblock calipers at the front, complete with racing discs, while top spec Ohlins equipment is included front and rear with fully adjustable upside side forks and a TTX rear shock. An Ohlins steering damper is also included to complete the trifecta.

Fully adjustable footrests and mounting plates are included With the objective of allowing each rider to optimise the riding position says MV Agusta, and the even the foot-operated gear shifter and rear brake peg are adjustable.

We expected magnesium wheels and possibly a mag rear swingarm to be bolted to the bike but the official media statement makes no mention of magnesium parts, but there are plenty of cosmetic upgrades to separate the Serie Oro from the bogger F3.

To start with, the mirrors and subframe are painted to match the F3 colour scheme, metallic red and silver, and there’s carbon fibre by the bucket load. The front fender and rear wheel hugger are carbon, as are the fairing inserts, dashboard cover, airbox side and intake covers, the swingarm protector cover, sprocket cover, fairing lower, both upper and lower chain guards are also carbon fibre, the triple-stacked exhaust outlets are also crafted from the lightweight, layered materal.


All these carbon fibre parts are also covered with a transparent protective finish to improve longevity.

Meanwhile the clutch cover and frame plates are machine polished and the alternator cover is completely milled from a solid chunk of metal, adding a hand-made feel that makes each MV unique, says the Italian company.

Serie Oro, or Gold Series elements can been see in air intakes and cooling exits which are finished in gold. The chain drive is also a gold DID item, adding a bit of bling to the rear of the bike.

A hand made seat cover has been fitted, made from leather and alcantara, giving the Serie Oro the ultimate touch of elegance says MV Agusta. There’s also a a gold plate mounted on the upper tripleclamp authenticating the F3 Serie Oro as a thoroughbred.

Owners also get a miniature three-cylinder engine replica paperweight which appears to have several functions, including a USB port and/or stick of some sort. We’re not sure what this is, but could be like the Ducati Data Analysis (DDA) setup that allows riders to plug into their bikes and examine detailed telemetry on braking, acceleration, sector times and so forth.

We were expecting a few engine tweaks, and though no mention is made in the official media release this doesn’t mean the limited edition Italian motorcycle won’t get a power hike. The last Serie Oro model had a few engine tweaks, the Brutale, and MV Agusta still hasn’t released the official data on its standard model, which could mean MV Agusta is simply keeping its cards close to its chest.

We still don’t what the standard F3 model’s peak power will be, with the only concrete figure from the Italian factory being 135hp (99kW) at 15,000rpm, which was released during engine testing a fair while ago. There’s a very good chance the F3 Serie Oro could pump out 150hp (110kW) or possibly more with an ECU tweak.
