Carbon Fiber - Emoto vs MV Agusta

how would you compare the two look/quality wise? as far as price MV is at least twice as expensive.

Excellent question. I've got some MVSP stuff and I would like to buy a bunch of the Emoto stuff. Anybody have both?

I can let you guys know when I get home from work tonight. I ordered the tail section and the instrument cluster back from eMoto. Should be there tonight. As far as what I've heard......eMoto has great quality stuff. Is it the quality of the Corse stuff, can't answer that because I don't own any of that. A little pricey for my pockets.

The MV SP carbon is really really good. Better than any other carbon I have ever seen.

One of the reasons is becuase MV SP uses full sheets of carbon for their pieces so there are no seams anywhere. Hence, this costs more money for them.

They also lay the sheets of carbon up real straight and not off center like some others.

I have emoto keyguard and front guard...and have seen a lot of MVSP carbon.
The MV stuff maybe twice as much, but it's nowhere near twice as good....emoto's carbon is excellent quality and great value.

does the CF quality have any relationship to how prone it is to fading from sunlight? it's very sunny here.

I have both....if we leave the value for money point to one side, as there is no argument here at all, as the MV stuff is just too pricey to compare.
But quality is another issue all together.
Quality wise at 2x the price the MV stuff is just top shelf, and leave you in no doubt that you have the best carbon, best fit and best visuals you can fit to your bike. But the price is a bit silly...

So are you saying, Graham that whilst IYO MV stuff is the best, Emoto is the better value for money? I suppose it comes down to how much of a perfectionist you are and/or how fat your wallet is!

John,
Lets just say that the 'non MV sp' carbon I have purchased stands out as inferior to the gen stuff. Is it noticible to the passer by...? no of course not, but I know! And maybe this is just because I do want the best.
This is such a subjective issue, and I don't for a second want to question quality and value of products from Emoto and many others, as without them we would have no choice, so they all play a significant role in our passion, and for all intent are really good products.
But the original question posed was the MV sp or Emoto as a quality comparo....and really there is no debate, MV sp wins by a country mile...as you already have made the point so well....its just a question of if you are prepared to pay for it!!
