newbie

hello to all my name is andrew and i live in south wales uk, i don't own an mv yet but am looking to get one in the near future.I would like a 750 as i think it would be a good all round bike. I currently own an rgv250 which is alot of fun to ride. Having seen an mv in a magazine i totally was blown away.I would be very grateful for all pros and cons of ownig an mv and would also like any info on price,maintenance etc. many thanks in advance

Hi andrew and welcome. Everyone here is a friendly bunch and all you need to know will have been on the forum. Regarding buying.........if your in the Market for a 750 then I would buy an evo 3 they are some of the last made with all the updates done, they can be picked up for around 5-7k or you could be patient and get a limited edition like the SR - SPR - Senna these have the most power especially the SR & SPR but very rare.

If your getting a later model then just go for one that has been looked after and a FSH. BTW servicing is every 4K and not on a time scedual.

Hope you find her soon

regards

Hi Andrew your'e welcome. What type of MV appeals to you...Brutale or F4 sports bike?. I have a Brutale1078rr which 'may' be a little too much for you and coming from a 250 I think your choice of a 750 is a very wise one. The quality and exclusivity of an MV cannot be matched and if you do go for one you'll be 'livin the dream'!. You'll probably find the insurance a bit more expensive than other run of the mill bikes which I'm sure will be no surprise. Having said that, seeing as it's a 750 you're after it shouldn't be too bad. MVs tend to be bought by people who really appreciate true quality and as such getting one you'll find it'll have been really well looked after, probably not have many miles on it and have been serviced as it should have been. Despite what others (who have never owned an MV) say these bikes are very reliable and the members on this excellent forum will definitely offer help and advise with any concerns which you may have.....the thing is we ALL love these bikes and are only too willing to share whatever knowledge we have to each other. So Andrew get yourself an MV you'll love it!! Brian (BG) Wells.

Welcome to the site Andrew. What is your budget if you don't mind me asking? You can get an early 750 for around the £4000 - £5000 mark depending on age and condition etc. Most F4's have been well looked after but not all of course. The old adage 'you get what you pay for' springs to mind. If you can run to £7000 give me a call, I know someone who has a really nice low mileage 1000S for sale. Lol
