Which MV???...

I am in the process of selling off most of my dirt bike collection, and am thinking about picking up an MV. More as a collectors piece, but I may occassional ride it to/from church ( "church" is moto speak for mountain canyon riding....).

Which MV would you pick if you were to only buy one????....

Which MV would you pick to ride, and/or strickly to add to an exotic bike collection???....

Thanks for any replys

P.S....I have a small collection of Itallian exotics, including a number of off road, MX, enduro/isde and motard bikes; alone with a handfull of street bikes too. Because of age and health reasons, I am not able to ride off road any more, but I do some road riding at least occassionally. Hence, the thinning out of my off road bikes. I would like to pick up an MV in the near future, once I thin out the collection to make room....

thanks again

F4 Senna.

If you have the money and like the style, Tamburini.

F4 is the most exotic. Brutale is the most comfortable.

There was a great deal on one a few months back on e-bay (brutale). Dealer in Texas. I think it went for under MSRP. I'm not a fan of gold, so my fav is the Senna. But no doubt, an Oro is collectible brutale or F4. There was an F4 Oro recently sold on e-bay too.

Personally I would buy what moves you and as I'm sure you understand, none of these bikes are going to be collectible investments. MV continues to come out with new limited editions--case in point, the new Senna.

YMMV

I agree with Gladio. It's really down to yourself, we all have our own favourites. If I was looking for a collectable, perhaps an F4 Oro as previously mentioned, but how about a Cascina Costa 750S America if you can find one. Those bikes along with the racing machines of the 60's and 70's gave me my first insight into the legend that is MV Agusta. Wish I had a 750S America in my garage

Im not interested in a vintage bike....Im interested in a modern generation MV.....

I agree that the vintage bikes are nice; but I have decided to stay with modern more recent bikes...

thanks for your reply(s)...

Given your description of past bikes/interests and your condition I'd focus on a Brutale.

-Brutale Oro is 750 and long term probably the most identifiable limited bike


-Buy the America kit and install on a Brutale of your choice. 300 kits worldwide.



-Or a 910R



..depending on your colour preferences, budget and availability.

If you want an MV just as a collectable item i'd say get the F4 ORO or the MV Veltro

If you have the money my votes with the Tambo or Senna. To me any MV's a collectable.
