Of course, when you got that kinda money, you probably already have two desmo's.

Desmo looks like a real GP bike with lights. MV looks like an exotic streetbike - but still a streetbike.

goofy? I love the exhaust on that bike. looks like a 4barrel shotgun looking at ya. I think the desmo is way overrated. I like that MV. Can you imagine pulling up to ppstarbucks on that suckers or sonic here in CC.

on "twist the throttle", the designer said he got the idea from the big pipe organs that go in churches or he talked to them about how they work so he can design the exhaust.

You guys need to research that bike.

It's a completely hand made job. If you bin it, you have to send it to Italy to get it rebuilt.

That bike is a work of art. 200whp, hand laid carbon, hand crafted Ti exhaust. :drool:
