MCN I've only been buying it every week for 30 years John absolutely great newspaper and the best selling one in U.K.

Guess its a no brainer that the GSXR walks away with it as it is definitely the best all-rounder, I have never liked GSXR's and never bought one but for street use, parts and reasonable reliability its fair to see why they are still on the market.

My choice without hesitation is the 848 EVO. that bike looks absolutely stunning, absolutely amazing and for road use it will keep up with the other two.

The F3, im afraid this bike is for people who have a lot of cash, as it constantly needs work. When you buy a bike new, you should never have to tamper with it as much as what you read from guys on the F3 forum, I would happily sit back with the 848 what an amazing looking bike

thanks for posting John.

If you like the 848 Evo, then you better not watch this YouTube clip, unless you have a box of tissues handy...

As a laugh, ask the guys at Glasgow Ducati if they have any second hand 1199 Superleggera's yet ?

Good luck with the pups.. Do you know how many pups the mum is carrying ?.. If you're lucky, this next litter might fund a big chunk off your next bike purchase...

Off now to give the gardens their last cut of the year ( I hope )..

Rubbish paper, it's only the best selling one because it is the only one.

There's only two reasons the Suzuki came out top, 1. It's the chief editors long termer and 2. There wasn't a triumph or BMW in the running.

Interested in anything that Sucks, Bangs and Blows!

I got the impression that all the testers wanted the MV to come out tops, because of its drop dead good looks, and track performance.

If it wasn’t for this apparent throttle response issue, the MV would have come out top..

I don’t know why bike manufacturers have to follow the car/aero industry and insist on going down the fly by wire throttle route, if they haven’t managed to refine it enough.. What’s wrong with the good old fashioned cable method.

John have you tried a FBW throttle on the MV triples? Yes it's different, a bit odd at first but within ten minutes of riding it is not an issue, what does impress is the instantaneous response from the engine, the manic pick-up, the sound, and the fun factor which just overwhelms you.
Anyone who can get to an MV dealer just try one of these new generation bikes, I am old school, F4 since 2001, and I can tell you these new bikes are the future, and will only get better.

No I haven't Jim.. The last MV I rode was at Ally Pally when the factory brought a load of bikes over on their European road show tour..

I rode one of the old school large capacity Brutales ( Don't tell Randy because he'll think I'm going weak) and was very, very impressed with it.

I've since turned down road tests from fellow MV owners and dealers, because " You Bin it, you own it"..

I'm waiting for the F3 800cc SPR to come out and then I might jump in and buy another MV..

Does anyone know if the Ducati 1198's have FBW ?.. I'm too lazy to go and check mine in the garage, but if they do, then you wouldn't know it when riding the bike...
