Hi folks just wanted to introduce myself. I have a few questions. I am currently in the market for a new bike and i have been drooling over an MV for a few years now. I am just about ready to make my commitment to an expensive Italian bike. When I seen the new 1098 I was telling myself with that price tag that is the one i want i have a soft spot for v twins. Anyhoo now I am thinking I should chalk up the wallet and buy an MV. so my question which i searched other post for answers is this. I will be living no where near an MV dealer although we do have 2 MV 750's in the state and i would have no way of getting a bike to them to be serviced.How important is the dealer service at 600mi. my Yammy R1, R6 and other bikes i have always taken care of and never had a dealer service them and have over 20,000 miles on each. I would hate to find out the machines can be finicky and need to be looked over at the recommended times. I know nothing of Italian bikes and would think they are just as solid as their Japanese competitors. Also as far as mods go I have made up my mind no more modding ever (at least in my head) but slip-ons for sound would be nice i have searched endlessly and cannot seem to find a lot out there is FBF a good company? are the RG3's,Arrow or what are some companies out there that sell parts also with just slip ons i should not need a PC3 or a chip right? thanks for any help and do you guys recommend any dealers on the west coast? last question i am looking to get the R312 is there any huge differences in the bike over the R?

the stock pipes are Arrows


- MV Agusta Brutale RR1090
- Ducati Diavel Carbon Red
- Ducati Monster 659

The only thing better than a fast Italian motorcycle is several fast italian motorcycles.

If you get the R 312 you are SET! Great choice!

A lot of the exhaust systems will come with a new chip.. check out emotoUK's selection to get an idea of whats available:
You will see that the MV Agusta / Corse have EPROMs.

As for maintenance, there are a few members I know who perform all of their own service. MV's are well built!!

I hope to see some photos of your soon to be MV in alaska. What a beautiful place that I hope to visit one day

thanks. the riding up here is not as great as you would think but still nice. My favorite ride is in Suches, Ga just south of Deals gap. these 2 roads are amazing and the towns are very very biker friendly the 2most traveled roads in the US. Now that i am making Alaska my permanent home i would like to have what i think is a collectors bike i ride during the summer and massage in the winters.

If you want a collectors bike and you are partial to twins your logical choice is the 1098 Tricolore. It will be the same price as an '07 MV but:

The TC is 2007 only.

I believe that only 400 were made.

I love my Brutale and am dangerously close to buying an F4. But I have trouble keeping track of all the limited edition MVs. (Ago, Tamburini, Corse, Nieman Marcus, Senna, etc.) I think the Ducati TC will be rarer.

well i put my hard earned money down today on a 312 the dealer seems to be going out of his way he threw in a cover and iasked if he would scratch that and lets go with a jacket the red original one and he said get me your size so we will see what happens with that. also only like 150 maybe afew more were coming to the states and only like 40 ithink of the black a lot dealers did not order were afraid it would not sale. i should be flying down next to buy then set up shipping. wish me luck on cheap airfare since the bike is not helping this out in that department.

Mate there is a post on an Australian magazine article on the 312R read that.

I would have chosen the 312R, I think you will be in heaven.

Good luck.
