exhaust bullshit

Hi iam a 910R owner thats happy with the bike ( apart from mirrors,rear brake) but getting really pissed off with MV about the exhaust situation,just been told mid june for system to arrive,as was told mid may.Why does MV piss people about,had to wait ages for the bike yes worth the wait,but why all the lies and bollocks about the exhaust,this is putting me off any future visits to any MV dealer,has anyone any news,i feel like stuffing the bike back up the dealers ass and going to somewhere where aftersales mean something.

I understand why you feel this way, unfortunately this is the way it is with MV, you are not alone.

Relax, you have the bike. And it is a great bike. The dealer is at the mercy of MV and what they are told. Go for a ride and enjoy the bike...

I agree that my 910R is a great bike but I did factor in the exhaust system as part of the justification for the cost. No other bike company could get away with this kind of customer service. No wonder they are always in some sort of financial trouble! I doubt that I will buy another.

Did you Ducati come with an additional aftermarket exhaust?

MV has done this for a long time with special models, like the Senna, Ago. This is something new for the Brutale and obviously they made some miscalculation in availability. I would imagine that they had two options, one to hold delivery of the bikes, or two, deliver the bikes and then deliver the exhaust when it was available.

Let me ask you, what do you think is the hold up on the exhaust. Do you think MV is intentionally witholding them because they don't care? Do you think since MV doesn't build the exhaust themselves it might be some other problem with availability?

I can understand how you feel. I waited 5 months for my 910. I waited 5 months when I ordered a set of Marchesins. You feel like you're owed something, that you paid for it. I don't mean to trivialize that. I just want you to put it into perspective and maybe look at it from their point of view.

Cagiva USA "informal" response

Guys,

Just got off the phone with Cagiva, US.

Gladio is right!

MV made a decision to deliver 910R prior to manufacture of race exhaust, yet to be delivered.

Exhausts are in some stage of manufacture/shipping and that answer is unclear to whom I spoke.

BUT be assured that as soon as Cagiva US has the exhausts, they will be shipped to the dealers and delivered to 910R owners as promised.

It will be a matter of month(s???). Patience is recommended.

Peter

Perhaps it's because the finacial issue of MV that there is more waiting!

FYI, I have been waiting for my Senna since 12/05, and still expect to wait another 6 weeks more, at least.

My feeling is that If one wants to have a great meal at a famous but small family run Italian bistro, than it wouldn't be reasonable to expect to have the same speedy food delivery of the McDonald's.
