Certainly they are cool looking bikes.
But since they came out 10-30 years before I was even born and at the cost of sounding ignorant [happens all the time], what makes these bikes so amazing?

Don't make excuses, Make it happen

05 F4
07 SENNA (261/300)
13 F3

04 Ducati 749s (Track Project)
06 CBR600RR (Track Project II)
08 Aprilia RSV (Rest In Pieces)

Difficult to put into words Daniel - When I ride classics it just a different word, I actually get transported into era the bike came from. When I ride a 70's MV with open face helmet goggles etc if I am on road without other cars I could believe I am in the 70's. They brake different handle different & your riding technique is very different, there's (at most) 3 inches of rubber between you & catastrophe & certainly no thread up the sides of the tyres.

But the way it all comes together including the modest engine outputs, it just works, everything feels different - technically inferior but paradoxically superior & somehow magical.

I know that really doesn't explain it but if you are ever in Australia, drop in & we'll go riding, after that you may understand. Of course, you could say - hell that was crap give me back the bikes I was born on that do everything exceptionally well

The truth is, that it's about romanticism - they generally tend to represent a very fond period in your life.

The MV Agusta's are world championship winning bikes and the dream of a million motorcyclists of the era.
Now young Spartacus it is understandable that You ask that. And honestly You are grown up as part of a generation where the newest will have to replace full functioning things, even if they still do the job. Once something isn't working You call 911 or cry at the forum, facebook or what ever source. And if nobody is going to bally brush You, repair it for You, You will trough it away. This is todays way of living, not to offend You.
Clearly are nowadays Sport Bikes light years ahead of such old machinery. They function well and don't need any service for thousands of miles. The frames, brakes and suspension make any racer of the past feel ashamed. To power output of modern engines is plain awesome and would have the ability to snatch world chamiponships a few years ago. Alone they commute mostly on idle speed trough conjusted roads or live their lives at 50% of their performance.
Now this old vintage crap is quite the opposite. Needs constant care, the ability to fix the simple, but tricky, mechanics and electrics. It needs peoples who love to fix things and can cope with disappointment.
But You should see the tears of joy in their faces if this peoples manage a few laps on a track or a tour over the country roads.
So why is this ? Is it the feeling of being atop of the technology. Is it that You can go and push hundred ten percent out of the classics and still feel You have it under control ? Is it the simplictiy of the mechanics and design what is making us falling in love with such old stuff. For me it is. But that is something You young Spartacus will might never experience and understand. And this is pretty sad for me.

Great post!!

I would love a classic MV, but unless I get the lottery sorted, it will remain a dream.

The older I get, the faster I was!
