Agusta has launched its Agusta F3 Serie Oro on the Canadian market with a starting price of $28,995.00. This special version is available in only 200 units and comes with a series of unique features that give it a pretty distinctive character.
Among the unique features of the MV Agusta F3 Serie Oro yu’ll find the gold frame plates and single-sided swing arm and forged aluminum wheels.
The MV Agusta F3 Serie Oro is built around a 675 cc, four-stroke engine that delivers a maximum power of 126 hp at 14,400 rpm and 52 lb•ft of torque at 10,600 rpm (71 Nm). The engine’s power is kept under control by a six speed manual transmission.
The stopping power is handled by a Brembo brake system, with radially-mounted Monobloc calipers gripping Racing discs.
Other features worthy of being mentioned include fully adjustable Öhlins upside down forks, TTX shocks and a space-frame chassis.

MV Agusta Canada formally announces that the much awaited new F3 “Serie Oro” will be available in Canada as of June 2012. This limited edition will be available at the retail price of $28,995.00 In keeping with the traditions of the brand the limited edition “Serie Oro” version appeals to collectors and enthusiasts of Italian engineering excellence. These exclusive models, of which a maximum of 200 examples will be built only to special order, differ from the standard version via a multitude of details, both in terms of aesthetics and engineering. The F3 Serie Oro is immediately recognized by the gold frame plates and single-sided swing arm, as well as the forged aluminum wheels painted the same color. The deliberately minimalist graphics subtly emphasize the lines of the bike, as well as identifying it. The sensuous bodywork design is characterised by a special paint scheme which accentuates its shapely form; the final result is a striking reinterpretation of the traditional MV Agusta silver and red livery. Even the rear view mirrors are painted, and the seat subframe matches the colour of the F3s tubular space-frame. The clutch cover and the frame plates are machine polished, while the alternator cover is completely milled from a billet, providing these components with the hand-made feel that makes each MV unique.
The attention to detail extends to the air intakes and cooling exits, which have a gold finish, as well as the DID Gold final drive chain. The completely handmade covering of both rider and passenger seats employs real leather and Alcantara®, giving the Serie Oro the ultimate touch of elegance. As usual with MV Agusta Serie Oro models, a gold plate mounted on the upper triple clamp identifying each individually numbered bike, completes this picture of exclusivity. Several mechanical parts are unique to the Serie Oro models, exemplified by the outstanding Brembo brake system, with radially-mounted Monobloc calipers gripping Racing discs. Fully adjustable Öhlins upside down forks, TTX shock and steering damper collectively represent the ultimate in suspension. The space-frame chassis and seat sub-frame are TIG-welded, guaranteeing a strong, stiff structure and a highly refined aesthetic appearance. With the objective of allowing each rider to optimise the riding position, the footrests and their mounting plates are billet machined, and are fully adjustable, as are the gear change and rear brake levers. The F3s carbon fibre components add a unique richness to the bike. The front and rear mudguards, dashboard cover, air box side and intake covers, fairing inserts, both upper and lower chain guards, Swingarm protector cover, sprocket cover, fairing lower, and stacked exhaust outlets are all manufactured in this lightweight, good looking material, each one carefully manufactured and covered with a transparent protective finish.
