Townhome.

You ever rent a place in downtown? $3k/mo on rent and utilities is easier on everyones pockets when you have a roommate.

well, you know.

FYI...There is a little bit of link to the MV engine design and Ferrari (not super strong, but it is a link)


Engine

The F4 engine is a liquid cooled inline four cylinder (4-stroke) with two overhead camshafts (DOHC), 16 radial valves, electronic multipoint injection, induction discharge electronic ignition and following capacity variants: 749.5 cc, 998 cc and 1078 cc. The engine was derived from the 1990–1992 Ferrari Formula One engine. Early in the design process Ferrari engineers assisted in the development of the engine. MV (Cagiva at the time) quickly deviated from the Ferrari design, but they kept one important feature, the radial valves. The F4 engine is unique in the sense that it is the only radial valved motorcycle engine currently in production.

I'm just sayin the sticker looks out of place.
If he likes it then it's cool, did not mean to put the man's ride down, the MV is about the best lookin' bike ever made, IMHO.

Welcome to the MV club For service needs I would strongly recommend Andy @ MV Agusta of Houston (Metric), I am very particular about my MVs and he is the only one I trust other than me

This is very true. Flyin Duc knows his way around exotic women. Mine and several other MV owners can attest to this

Took her out and gave her a good beating today. Its an amazing machine no doubt. This thing has sick mid-range. I want to put it on a dyno and see the torque curve on paper. I was a bit disappointed with the 150 to top speed pull though. Figured it would be ridiculous compared to other liter bikes but from 170 to 181 it felt like I dropped anchor. It wont see speeds like that too often so with it. Overall Im super stoked to have this rig chillin in the stable. Probably dress it up with some cf pieces in the near future.
