First MV Agusta F3 shots slip out

The crafty crew over at Hell For Leather managed to get their hands on a scant few photos of the MV Agusta F3. Word is that the wicked new bike will share more than a little blood with the flagship F4, though in place of the time/space-bending 998 cc mill, the smaller bike is likely to employ a slightly more humane engine. Early reports are pointing to either a 600 or 675 cc powerplant, though no one has been willing to throw out a guesstimate on exactly how many ponies the bike will lay down.
From the shots, it's clear that the F3 will be very similar to its more robust sibling, at least aesthetically. While it's possible that the bike in the shot above is simply wearing pre-production bodywork, it's entirely possible that the fairing we see here is what will ride on the retail version. If so, there will be only a handful of differences between the F3 and the F4, as both bikes make use of the same miniscule headlight and tiny tail light.
MV Agusta hasn't yet announced whether or not the F3 will even make it to production, so odds are the company is simply testing the waters with this bevy of spy shots. If you want to see this one in the showroom, best let the company know what you think. We'd hate to see the manufacturer's hard work on its small-displacement model go to waste.
