F3 Production

http://www.asphaltandrubber.com/bant...-mv-agusta-f3/

Have you ever wondered what the backstory was to building a motorcycle? Perhaps no greater version of that story exists than the rebirth of MV Agusta from the hands of Harley-Davidson, and the building of the company’s supersport model, the MV Agusta F3. Making an appearance on National Geographic‘s “Mega Factories” show, the doors of MV Agusta were opened up to the film crew’s cameras, and a fairly candid look at what is behind the curtain takes place.

Very objective write up.
I had already seen this video documentary.
I was unaware of the harley involvement. It does not get mentioned on the documentary....

Yea, I did notice that the video didn't mention Harley's brief involvement with MV.

They ran a series of documentaries on velocity channel, forgot the name of it, but they did the ducati factory, yamaha factory, triumph factory, mv factory, honda factory, and harley.

Very cool series. I like watching how these things come together, and the differences in techniques to build and process these machines.

And I think the name of the NatGeo show is Ultimate Factories?

harley davidson was not mentioned because just before the bike was set to be produced. the MV family bought MV back from harley for one us dollar. and also were left with something like 30 million euros for working capital.

the F3 was the brainchild of the father and was/is to save the company. but sadly the father passed away just before production. and MV was wholly owned once again by the original family allbeit the son is running it now, id say the last name but cant spell it. lol

current mods... jardine pipe,TOR map,hyperpro damper,Apexcone hid's,pilot power2ct's,gilles rearsets,sharkskinz race plastics,power broze windscreen,520did conversion,elka 3way shock,tri gelseat,battery tender,blue winscreen bolts,blue reflective rimtape,copmwerkes fender eliminator,helibars,snakeskins/techspec tankgrips,blue progrips......more to come
