I saw the Benelli in real life, and yes, it is one of my top ten dream bikes (ok, don't laugh, so is the 1941 BMW r75, but hey). I've loved the cafe racer ever since it came out, the paint looks different from what I have seen, and the praying mantis style front has always been a turn on for me. Ok, now that I got that out of my system, Buy an F4 Tamburini , and if that's out of reach, get the 312R, the bike is a true piece of motorcycle "art" , you won't regret it.

In fact Iīm not worried about the MV is going to have a new model soon because I always buy bikes and cars when they are finishing a certain model.
The question with MV at this point is should I wait and buy at last minute the "pearl" or the price ainīt going to fall?!

The pearl white is a desirable color, and though you may save money if you wait, you might wait too long, and have trouble finding one.

I like the monster, but I don't really think of it as looking timeless... You can see it was designed quite some time ago.

MV was owned by a malaysian company for a while. I don't think that stopped many people from buying them or thinking of them as any less Italian.
Well, I guess the reason I feel the way I do is because China seems to be at the forefront of counterfeit product in the world, manufacturing at times is suspect for quality, they exploit people with their working conditions (I know I know...it seems every country does this).

No Elitism intended, but I am concerned about quality. Sorry if I offended anyone.

I can see where the media has you going....

I people just need to remember the diff between what it means to 'own' a company, financially. And the label "made in china". I suspect the latter is what you are worried about (for good reasons), and I don't think that is the case here.


And don't worry too much about elitism, generally its fairly accepted here.

So we're not going to have to worry about a news story like this

Benelli Motorcycles Recalled due to the use of Lead Paint. China is Once more to blame.

Whenever there's a recall, or something we all freak out about buying Chinese goods, but the truth is, you don't really know go "safe" goods from outside, and even inside the U.S. are.
