I have been lucky to have owned and ridden the Ducati Monster 1100s and 696+ and I seriously feel the 920 trumped both looks-wise, quality-wise and performance-wise.. Get it mate, you won't regret it.

Hi all MV lovers,

my name is Fabrizio. I bought a B920 in italy last year. Then i moved to the UK, on the bike. So far i've had only one problem, twice. The radiator..

After 14000Km, i was still in italy, i was going to work. As soon as i arrived the office, i've found a hole in it(left side). The bike was at the garage for the three weeks, waiting for the part..

It happened again around 30000Km, another hole (right side). Two months of forced pit stop.

There is an bullettin from MV Agusta ita for a problem on the B920/990/1090 radiator. For MY 2011 the part is fixed to the frame without shock absorber. The fix from MV consist in installing a rubber kit (like it was in older brutale models).

Except the radiator, the bike runs fine. So far i've run 37000Km. Tomorrow i'm going to replace the original battery. A Koyo.. not the very best, with a yuasa ytz10s gel.

I still think it was a good choice.

Live long and prosper,
