Good post. I hope no one gets shafted.

I could have been caught out because my knowledge is very poor of model variations etc. I guess anyone new to the marque could easily be fooled.

Interesting... I also have limited model knowledge of all the MVs. What alerted you to it being fake, what stands out as being wrong.

The number plate is fake, seats are wrong, exhaust is wrong, and pretty sure that is gold paint and not magnesium.

Those parts look gloss painted, not rough/matte gold magnesium like on the Oro. The Oro swingarm has two data acquision ports on the side. The lips on the Oro mag wheels are smooth. These are lipped. Triple clamp insert is 18k yellow gold on the Oro. The carbon fiber tank on the Oro is rough under the paint, not smooth. Airtubes and license plate holder should be carbon fiber.
