New Houston MV Agusta Dealer

Metric Motorcycles' Andy Marcer is MV Agusta's newest dealership. For those who don't know him, Andy has a full service shop to include full diagnostic equipment, a dyno room, machine shop, wielding, etc. You name it, he can do it or make it. He has been building racing engines and full machines for years.

Houstons new Mv shop

Looks like they are just off the N.W. side of the 610 loop. Call first as it seems they prefer appointments as to walk ins.

I went to their website and it doesn't say anything about being an MV dealership. As a matter of fact, I couldn't find the word MV or Agusta on the site. The site does indicate they have Ducati factory trained technicians. I think it's great if more MV dealerships (or even more important certified service shops) open up. Can you provide us with more info related to MV?

On behalf of Metric Motorcycles and MV Agusta of Houston, I want to thank you so much for the welcome.. It is a big honor for us and I can't tell you how excited we are to represent this historic brand and offer service and support to MV Agusta enthusiasts.

My name is Yuliya Marcer and, although new to the site, I believe there are several members here who've known me in person for some time (ok, I didn't say 'liked' me too.. lol ) In addition to my much less exciting day job in the oil and gas industry, I have been and will be helping Andy with setting up and operating the dealership. I've spent some time lurking on this site and found it to be an exceptional community, and we are looking forward to supporting it as a possible sponsor or otherwise, should the opportunity arise.

It is my pleasure to confirm that we indeed signed a dealer agreement with MV USA in early January but have been waiting to make the official announcement until our dealer license is finalized by the State of Texas, which we expect to happen early this week. I believe we are the first dedicated MV Agusta-only dealerships in the country, which allows us to not only do this amazing brand justice but to give our full attention to servicing the needs of all owners, regardless of where they purchased their machines.

As many of you know, we are not starting from scratch. Metric Motorcycles has been in business since 2001, and, thanks to Andy's knowledge and expertise, quickly grew to become the Houston's foremost specialist in Italian and European motorcycles as well as complex diagnostic, tuning, machining and other work. In other words, this was match made in heaven..

We will make an official announcement as soon as the license is finalized, but in the meantime please stop by to visit with Andy and check out our facilities if you are in the area. We are located at 620 West 27th Street, Houston TX 77008, (713) 334-8030 (2 blocks south of 610N, about 100 yards east of Shepherd on 27th street). Our website has a number of articles and some additional information about the service side of the business on our website, www.metricmotorcycles.com, which will be updated with MV Agusta information as soon as we go live.

I'm looking forward to getting to know this community and visiting with some of you in person soon! In the meantime, meet our junior mechanic-in-training - ok, maybe more of a mascot.. We let him practice on Ducatis first!

All the best,

Yuliya

His current priorities probably don't lie with updates to his website.....his business is largely word of mouth. His wife is also a CMRA racer that I have competed with in the past, and they are both exotic car enthusiasts as well.

I will update upon completion of the work scheduled for my Tambo.....having a once through plus installation of factory race exhaust and chip.
You have a Tambo and live in Houston? Never seen you around. Lets go riding when the weather gets better !!!

I am good with that, but I live a bit NW of Houston. We do a lot of riding in the hill country in small groups of folks that ride together a lot and have good CV's of street riding. I will give you a PM when the weather gets a bit better. I am recovering from a rather large off 15 months ago (and Aussie couple was driving on the wrong side of the road near Independence and provided me with a surprise as I topped a hill...I suffered a shattered ankle and a grapefruit sized hematoma from having my upper calf cased by the engine in the resulting ditch oriented hood ornament avoidance manuever and low side). My recovery has been slow but generally positive and I started riding again last summer, including doing the Barber Ride Smart weekend. I hope to be in decent physical shape by the end of this summer, i.e., weight proportionate to height and muscle strength to former levels.
