He knows.  That's why he's excited about it = two triples.

Need to watch this later...love my d675, but lust after the F3 - maybe it's a few years away?

As much as I love Italian bikes, I would take the Daytona.  I just hate the front end on the MV as well as it's "we ran out of original ideas" GSX-R with the single head light.  I think the only bike with a worse front end is the BMW S1000RR.

Just watched it.  To be fair, it sounded like the F3 was made to race, and in that regard I didn't hear anything wrong with it, only that the D675 was smoother and more refined as opposed to angry, like all MV's are.  On the track, the F3 might be the winner, but not as a street bike.

Who knows.  I've been riding my Sprint a bit, need to go get the D675 out of storage! SPRING WHERE ARE YOU?!?!

I so miss my D675 now that I'm back to doing track days again.  Though, I believe I have the best all around tool for that type of use and abuse.  But, that triple...   Inlove Inlove Inlove

It's inevitable that I will own another triple one day.  As much of a Triumph fan as I am, I'll admit I was disappointed by what the reviewers said about the MV.

Personally I was surprised at how much they talked-down the F3.  I would think their comments may have been different if they had tested them on the track, where it seems the F3 has its strength.  For general non-track riding, it seemed pretty plain that the Triumph is the better 675 triple unless you prefer more character in the way of poor low-rpm riding and a more raw edge (which is much the same when comparing the Triumph to a Duc).

Yes, F3 more track oriented and may be too angry for the street:

Nice article, thanks Dan.  My question is whether the F3 can be transformed into a road-friendly bike in the form of the forthcoming Brutale 675.  I would think that is critically important for the Brutale, moreso than with the F3.

Agreed, because as much as I love the Striple, that MV is damn sexy.
