TO mark the release of the new MV Agusta F3 the Italian firm will produce the golden-draped limited edition 'Serie Oro' costing £19,999.

The regular base model will cost €11,990 (approx £10,500). The Serie Oro will more than double the price, as the premium model features high-end Öhlins suspension, racing-spec Brembo Monobloc callipers, carbon-fibre bodywork, with the frame and single-sided swingarm lavished in gold, as well as the forged aluminium wheels.

The Serie Oro continues MV Agusta's past of creating gold specials and in regards to the F3, only 200 of the exclusive machine will be built to special order.

The production run will commence in December, running through January, for delivery for the first month and February in 2012. The exclusive gold machines are only able for reservation with a deposit of £4500, the potential owner will then be told the number of bike - between 1-200 - they will be allocated.

Rob M - Oro is Italian for gold

What can I say: proper italian bike design and taste, you like it or not but at least it's not going to go unnoticed anywhere you park it !

That said, do you know if the engine is any more powerful than the stock version ? It was rumored to put out 140hp on the Oro.

Are the golden parts made out of magnesium alloy? A magnesium swingarm would really be nice :-) (The wheels can't be since it's not road legal afaik)

Since the wheels are said to be forged aluminum and they have the exact same shape as the standard ones (colour excepted) I'm led to believe that either they're not forged - why forge the wheels and not benefit from the hardened alloy to make thinner spokes? shape / spokes should be different... or maybe this isn't the final model yet and the forged wheels will be different when it ships.

Last but not least, the carbon fibre bodywork will ensure almost nobody will put it on a track and replacing the panels by fiberglass is criminal :-p

But anyway, really nice bike MV, keep up the good work!

I just can't understand all this love for gold :-(
