Thinking of buying a CC - What's should i pay

I have a chance to buy a rather new CC untouched.

What should i consider a fair price? Full warranty and comes with watch.

I would be trading my 2002 bostrom for it and some cash of course.

Thoughts? Or should i just get a DR16?

True - but based on the advice/experience of any recent CC buyers or sellers would be helpful.

They have been seen on the market here in the UK for around £35,000. That's around $55,000. You didn't say what the asking price was. With something like that it depends how much you really want it.

I don't have that kind of money but if I did I don't think I'd want to pay more than the £35,000. The watch means nothing to me, I'd sooner put the money into a Patek Philippe or a Rolex, but it might be something you want, I'm not you. The Desmodesici would certainly be worth looking at IMO, but then they have been cheaper than £35,000 in the UK too.

It's got to be your call at the end of the day.

Are you buying it to ride, as an investment, or as an art object?

If you're buying it to ride, and your skill set is up to it, I believe I'd buy the Ducati. If your middle name is not Hayden, Spies, or Rossi, either bike is wasted on you.

As an investment, I think I'd buy the MV if it's cheap enough. Cheap enough in my book is something around $50K for a perfect, low mileage, unmolested example.

As an art object, buy a Tambo. Ten years from now, the Tambo will be worth more than the CC, because it is generally considered the highest art form in the MV universe. It is universally loved, unlike the CC. You can find very nice, low mileage Tambos in the low/mid $30's.

Thoughts?

910R, S4RS Monster,'78 BMW R100S, Heritage Softail, Chrome V-Rod, Sportster 48, Kawasaki Concours 1400, '07 Ultra Classic with sidecar, yellow Vespa LX 150, a cool little Ruckus, and a very understanding wife........

Although if the CC were better priced to begin with, would it be more sought after?

If it's a modern collectable F4 you're after then, if it's still available, there can't be better than this:

I like Randy's advice.

^^ +1 on the Veltro, otherwise I would go the Ducati or the Tambo.

I second the comments on the Tamburini. I have seen as new Tambos in the US with under 400 miles for sale for under $23K US.

For me I think the Veltro Strada would be the ultimate MV bike to own. Pista is lovely but not streetable. It's a Tambo with different clothes and much scacer. In lieu of that I agree with the others that the Tambo is the MV to have. I had one and I'll tell you they are gorgeous, limited, and go like hell. Only reason I sold it was I had too many bikes and it was the best shot at getting a decent price out of all of them.
