That's not correct. The only mileage that gets put on MV before purchase is by technician.

They have demo bikes, but they don't have any MV's on demo.

+1 on the model. You could ride my 2006 F4S but then if you are looking at the new bikes, mine is nothing compared to the new ones. Also you could ride my 2008 Brutale 910 ... and same case, completely different that the new ones. Last, you could ride my F3 if and F3/B3 is what you are looking for and that would give you a pretty good idea (unless you want the 800 cc).

And there is no way you could ride my CC

if they wreck it, down time for repairs, raise in rates and drop in bike value. And I'm pretty sure they're not going to cover someone else other than the insured rider tanking it (I could be wrong), which also leads to the question of fraud. Too many variables that lead to a royal PIA for me to let someone ride my bike. Especially if I had an exotic.

I have full coverage on the wife too, but I don't let strangers test drive her either! You try it you buy it.

I didn't have a specific model in mind, just one of the supersport/superbike models, F3 or F4.

I'm not looking to buy one. I've ridden and owned Aprilias and Ducatis (plus bikes), currently have a RSV4, and am just very curious about how the MV feels on the road. Almost bought an MV instead of a Ducati awhile back.

I'm not expecting someone to just throw me their keys and be like, "Yeah, just bring her back with a full tank." More like, meet up with someone, ride together, switch bikes for a bit. The "insurance" for both parties being that *at worst* you're going home with the other bike if something crazy did happen. If say, I went down on the MV, the MV's owner would either be keeping my RSV4 or working with my insurance to get the MV fixed/replaced or vice versa if they wrecked my RSV4.

Possibly ride with a group where they bring a friend or two as do I and all have a good time riding together.

If you do not intend to buy one, then I dont see the point in asking to ride one.

And ... even if you were thinking about buying one, a test drive wont do much. To me the looks only on the MV is what you need in order to buy one. For everything else, they are more bikes than I can handle so why bother test riding them ...

Do know though, they are a pain in the a$$ to keep up with maintenance wise (they do break down more often than others, at least the older models)

Does one need more of a reason than the experience itself?

The experience its phenomenal but like HES said the older models are expensive and a pain to keep on the road. If you ever consider buying one make it your "other" bike and not your dedicated bike and you will love it
