1980 Vespa (my track bike)






Several comments from an MV owner and enthusiast

1) and most important, the Houston Yamaha former dealer did not quit selling MV Agusta because of how difficult MV clientela are but because they SUCK. There is not a single dealer worse in the US than those guys. I have PLENTY experience with them and plenty of reasons why I say what I say.

2) If you are concerned about spending $600 to $800 in services every 4k miles then this is not a bike for you.

3) There is a big difference between 2002-2005 or 2006-2009 and 2010 onwards MV agusta. Not only designwise but mechanics and performance. So if you are willing to buy an MV and want advice, pls give us some more info on which model/year you are talking about. And Andy can give you a full class on this. I can tell you what problems to expect on different models/years, etc

4) You commute on your bike .... get something else

5) You want to check my mv's ... send me a PM

+1

I would not want to own an Italian bike as my everyday ride, any more than I want an Italian supermodel for a wife - as tempting as that may sound.

Okay, I ain't got a snowball's chance in on that, but just a thought. I get carried away with these analogies.

Would you drive a Murciélago to work every day, even if you could afford it?
