Interesting MV on eBay

So here is another interesting MV for sale that just came up.

It's listed as an '08, and the vin# shown gives the 9th and 10th digits as "08", so I'm guessing it would correctly be a 2008 US model.

789 miles, and proven with a photo of the dash.

What's interesting is that it has the SP-01 Corse body kit on it. At least that's what I think it's called? It's a 1+1, which oddly enough is usually how I've seen the SP-01.

And it has magnesium wheels.



Here's the eBay listing-

Would love to hear your thoughts?

It's just a customised 312R, not sure if it's worth that money in the USA, but it looks clean and well cared for.
Those Star wheels do look like the Magnesium ones.
He's ride height is set very low at the rear.

Well it looks like Corse kit but than I would want the certification and the plaque with it.
Other than that the MV Agusta CRC F4 Corse was offered as 750 and 1000 cc any way.
So the base of any Corse is a standard bike being it a 750, 1000, 1000R or 312R.
The bike looks striking and the Corse fairings look just jaw dropping in natural light.
Now the Oro star wheels are in any way an improvement (lighter) over any standard wheel.
And those cost new roughly 4500 USD.
The F4 Corse was pictured in the Brochure with the silver Marchesini 10 spoke wheels.
Those are on sale in the for sale section by Maxcorse.
So You make up easily 2000 to 2500 USD by selling the Oro wheels and getting the Maxcorse's silver wheels.
Boom and than You have a low mileage 1000cc for 7500 USD.
And sure You should raise the rear as Donsy said.

The tail pipes look very smart. Could they be titanium ?

Yes Joe, they are the slash cut titanium MV Corse cans.

Interesting that they have retained the catalytic converter.
California......

The drive chain looked to be adjusted on the tighter side of tight.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

Ahhh, you guys have eagle eyes, I tell you.

Donsy, yeah that's what's wrong with the way the bike sits, isn't it? It's got a squat to the rear. Ride height is off.

No offense to anyone here as it's just personal taste, but I don't care for the gold mag wheels on this one. The silver Marchesinis would be much better, especially given all the silver in the Corse livery.

And I too wondered if the exhaust cans were titanium. MV Corse ti cans are what, around $4,000 USD?

Seems like an interesting one anyway. I'm not (quite) a player at the moment as I've got a big project to keep working on, and my day job is too busy to leave much time for anything else.

Of course that doesn't keep me from perusing...

John, you can change the colour, but the regular star wheels are no match for the Magnesium wheels when compared in looks and weight.

there is something about the bike that doesn't look right. I don't like the gold colored wheels with that paint scheme and the bike being lowered doesn't help.
