Ummm yeah, have you ever read the history of MV? They constantly go into debt, parts become scarce, rumors start, another investor comes in to bail them out. Dealerships are disappearing. Impossible to order parts online. The list goes on and on. So based on this evidence, the brand is dying.

Sure the bike itself looks sexy as hell, but my 13 year-old 910 STILL sputters and stalls when idling, like clockwork every few minutes! For 13 years it's done this. I had Eastern Cycle (in Beverly MA) look at it countless times when they were still an MV dealer, and they tried to fix it repeatedly until they ran out the clock on the warranty, at which point they said "sorry it's not under warranty anymore". Regardless of their ineptitude, now they've dropped MV and the nearest dealer is in NY. So, I personally tinkered with just about every single adjustment and part on the bike, all with no improvement. Maybe it's the ECU, but how the hell can I get a spare one to try *easily* and *economically* in the Boston area? A: You can't.

What other sane conclusion is there for one to make? I can't order parts; there's no one who can fix the sputtering/stalling problem. Yeah, the brand is dying-- they can't support their bikes.

I think Eric needs to sell the MV and buy another Suzuki to go with his SV650 track bikes (great bikes, by the way).....the newer GSX-R1000s are awesome.....

Oh yeah, there were rumors of Suzuki motorcycles going out of business not very long ago...

Maybe Eric should get another Yamaha....or better yet, a vanilla Honda. No fear of problems or lack of dealer's with intelligent staff there.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
