where'd u hear that? as far as i know HD's involvement is strictly ownership. they are not sharing anything technology wise. HD just wanted to boost their marketshare in Europe, so they bought MV for a RIDICULOUS amount of money. there have been no formal plans announced, that i know of, that state they are working on any bike together. and thank . HD wouldn't know how to build an exotic sportbike if it fell in their lap.

so... i just read the thread...

i love my bike... haven't had any probs whatsoever... need to do my valve adjustment soon. the yamaha dealership on 249/1960 is no longer dealing with these. So we shall see where i will get this done... I do know parts are hard to come by if you need them in a timely manner. Ebay is your friend. Otherwise from dealerships.. they come from overseas and then sourced out from Michigan i believe. A few online web sites sell aftermarket parts... Bought a few items from them... just takes time to ship from the other side of the pond.

btw I've been caught in a downpour... so don't know what the sparkplug comment was about. I've had no problems in the rain.

the bike is on wheels... the end.

have you ridden a 750 F4 before, or just the 1000? my only experience is with the 750, and even that was a pretty quick bike, lots of low end. like mentioned above though, some throttle on/off issues.


and sunday rider, please leave your narrow-minded ignorance out of the thread. if you want to bash harley's start a new thread for it. no need to "teach" me about sporbikes either. do a search for the jan 2008 motohouston bike of the month to see one of my other bikes.

Well, I think MV's are pretty cool bikes to own. However, if I owned a Ducati 848 as my current street ride I would probably pass on the MV. Consider this:

I have a garage of bikes cause I like variety in riding. In the past two weeks I've ridden a Zuma 70cc moped around San Antonio, and on the muddy motorcross track, a 50cc moped up and down the river road 420 style in New Braunfels backing it in to 15 mph corners, wheelying a supermotard around town, blasting my CBR1000 at speed on the highway, jumping a YZ125 and CR250 on the motorcross track, popping wheelies at ASI on a Bandit 1200 and Chad's street legal CRF88, and even cruised my monkey around the block draggin sneaker. Variety is the spice of life. Get something from a whole other side of the spectrum.

Maybe a chromed out big inch Harley?

I have owned a total of 4 MV's. A first model 2000, two Senna 750s and a 750 SPR. I still own two of these. I have about 30K combined miles of MV riding in Houston's heat. I have had ZERO major issues with any of them.

I will own a 1000 soon too.

They are awesome machines and very capable on the right hands.

Like any fine machinery as long as the maintenance is followed no major issues. Parts availability is Ducati like. You can get almost anything in 1 week or less. Fast by Ferracci in PA is one of my many sources.

If you like to be different and appreciate fine Italian craftmanship an MV is your ticket.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions / concerns about MVs in general. I have been riding them since 2000.

Outdated??? It is the most modern bike to this day still. If its outdated why is it the only bike thats ever used in movies based on the future? (Batman, I-Robot, Matrix, Entourage, Transformers, Art of War, etc...) You get my drift! lol

I do strongly believe he referred to the 2000 model which is indeed technologically outdated. However, the new 312R is in my opinion one of the best in line four motorcycles. I've never rode one... yet. and some people might complain about their ergonomics and stiff suspension--Agustas are a pure breed race bikes--but the same it's said about some Ducatis, and I think they are great.

I was referring to styling of the bike. I am also biased because I owned one and thought it was the best super bike ever.

Ridding someone else bike is not the same, test ridding a bike will not allow you to tell if it is a good one or not, the throttle being different that your bike does not make it a bad bike. A joy ride for 5 minutes one day is not enough, ask people that owns one.

Again taking this people seriosly it could be your mistake and you could be missing out on a a bike that you want, just because some people can not afford it they are going to talk smack about it, if you like if go and get your information from the informed and MV owner.
