Can you please ask Brian if they could do a "race kit" for the F3 consisting of the revised intake cam, new valves, valve guides and springs as a complete kit for owners of F3 models prior to 2018.

I could go aftermarket but dont know what Im getting. OEM MV parts are too expensive individually! Would be greatly appreciated!!!!

I asked them if they could do a LED rear tail light conversion kit for owners with the old bulbs and they responded and did it.

Please please ask Brian for that race kit!

Thats awesome and thank You so much for organising this.
Looking forward meeting You Guys.

Great and very interesting: Few question you may ask them:
- retrofit kits for cush drive to align to the new "old gen" sproket older?
- retrofit for valve guide and intake cam for all 3 cylinders engines?
- scs kit for non scs bike?
- Top case for TV (some of us are expecting an option for that)?

With the exception of the first, I suspect I do already know the answer for the others even without asking...

Well drop a valve and be prepared to get your arse reamed if you intend to replace all the parts with OEM at the current individual pricing. The least they can do is sell it as a complete kit , they can market it as a race kit if they dont want to "admit liability". We have to ask and put pressure on them, even if it is politely at a show. The person answering emails at MV clearly isnt getting the message to them. It's in everyone's best interest to have reliable bikes.

Still interesting to ask the question… I suspect many of us could be interested by the answer.

Fully agree. And that specially when they want to work as a top premium brand. Basically, a Brutale 1000 around 40K€ could work only if they support MV owners in the right way. Premium means top support level for maintenance, and it should at least translate in those elements:
  • Availability of parts anywhere in an acceptable time (2 open days)
  • customer oriented service with a motorbike replacement during any service immobilisation linked with a failure during or after warranty, and not at customer cost
  • availability of retrofit kits at subsidized price for those redesigned part linked with improvement to avoid failures: this participates to the park improvement, the customer satisfaction and makes overall message that MV is a strong premium seller. And with bikes more reliable it would participate into a virtuous circle…
  • accessories : if you look at the Turismo, it is a specific model in the range. Average mileage is rather big on TV/TVL compared to others models (Already seen multiple TV/TVL at 50k+ kms): well managed, it could be a big flagship for MV in terms of reliability sample. Few details needs improvements (Valve guides, sprocket carrier, and some accessories missing in the current accessories range : top case, frame pads, additional lights,...). The first one (top case) is actually what put many potential buyers off and turn them to other bikes.

They want to be a premium brand, they want to sell premium bikes, but they have to act as such.

I love my MV Agusta, however, it's not enough to make it the top brand we all would love to see it to be. Among the groups I'm riding with, I'm like an extra terrestrial: "long range riding, but with an MV; are you crazy?" is a frequent message I hear. People I ride with are riding BMW R1200GS most of the time; we have also some KTM, Triumph and some Multistradas. None of them got any issue with part availability (basically they get them generally 2-3 days after order). The BMW owners get most of the time a replacement during their service, as a BMW courtesy. The most impressive example is a friend who got an issue with is brand new R12000GS during the first month (it was the very new model, and the dealer did not know yet how to handle it) and the bike got immobilized for more than a week. In the meantime he got a courtesy bike, for free, and he got it back to the dealer with 4000kms more than he got (he had a long week-end programmed at that time). No question why today when people ride a lot, they actually ride a BMW: support, support, support. No question why BMW is the higher average price seller on the market today. MV Agusta wants to be top premium, they have to act! NOW!

In fine, even if we know more or less the answer, we should still pass the message thru, and ask those basic questions, and explain why we ask them...
