why not a V MV???

you know
I apologize i just finished my other thread about the torque VS. HP
and I got to thinking (and if you guy feel me on this , please chime in. Because i know Big CC listens to us ).
I have now this deep urge to line my garage with MV hardware
as i sit and wait for the 600 to come to life , i was thinking......
wouldn't it be nice to have an....uh ohh. dare i say it... V twin MVagusta ??
it would be beautiful in the line up, huh.
I would even buy it if it was a 800cc V twin that was an inline 600 killer.
Mr. CC , i have a bank account with your name specifically on it, please give me a reason to drain more out of it !!!
Anyone else for italian domianace??

Italian outfit, Rubber, heat, grunting, and you fill the open hole for more?? What's not to love??

Hmmm... so you're looking for a bike with some MV-like features. Trellis frame? Superb handling? Incredible style maybe by the great Massimo Tamburini? And a V-twin motor?

I think that's already been done. They called it the Ducati 916.

In Europe you can buy a Cagiva Raptor which has the Suzuki V-twin motor.

Yep, Tamburini chose the inline in the MV for a reason.

My favorite would be a V4 (or more!) but they too have serious packaging issues. They can be overcome as the GP bikes show, but it's expensive.

+1 for the V4. I can't wait to see the Aprilia superbike, but the renderings I have seen so far have been butt ugly.

Italians love heritage, that's why Ducati sticks with twins and the obsolete Desmo valve train, Guzzi loves the "sideways" V-Twin, Benelli love triples and MV will stick with the race winning inline 4 design that carried them to many race victories.

I'd like to see an MV triple. Take one cylinder out of the 1000 and instant 750cc triple. Wouldn't THAT be nice and narrow, too.

I didn't know Benelli had much of a history with triples. I thought their early GP wins were on singles and twins and didn't Walter Villa ride a 4-cylinder Benelli in the early 70's? Then there were the four and six-cylinder road bikes of the 70's but fill me in about the history of triples.

And, IIRC, MV had as many if not more GP wins with triples than fours.

I agree with emmvee... MV Agusta has history with Ago on inline
three cylinder GP Bikes(which sound FANTASTIC). It could be really
cool,an ultra light modern version of a single seat GP bike...but
would it sell & is Triumph already there??

I guess they did OK with the 4 against Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki... Triumph should be no trouble.

Seriously, the success of the Triumph could actually help. Coming on the heels of the failed Benelli it may have been seen as just another Italian company trying to dredge up some past glories. But with the Triumph doing well, people accept the triple as bona-fide alternative. And the Triumph is nice but it's cheap. Good value -- hell, GREAT value. But it's not aimed at the MV market.

So yeah. Shave a cylinder off the 1,000 for a 750cc triple or better yet shave a cylinder off the 1100cc motor for a 860cc triple. That displacement and those power characteristics might would work best as a naked. Fatter power band than a four, more revs and thrills than a twin. And NARROW??? Yes, indeed!

I think an MV with a Vtwin sound coming out the back would be wierd. The MV looks like the car equivalent to an F1....art. So hearing something like that come out the back, would be wierd. IMO, vtwin = unrefined power. Even the Duc motor seems less refined than even a Jap 4 IMO...
