The 2015 Turismo is rock solid AND a pleasure to drive.

Did only 21 000 mi in 18 months on the Turislow
so more experienced users might have found issues I haven't.

I would be interested to hear of owner's experiences and opinions regarding early model Turismo Veloce reliability and faults - I can't afford a new one.
I replaced cush drive rubber and maintenance parts at scheduled intervals never had a glitch.

Bought the bike new in 2017 so the original battery was dead trash from day one.

The fuel gauge died around 6 000 mi and got replaced with another found in Sedona (AZ)
Warranty job but the part wasn't in stock, the dealer did the job for free.

I let the clutch switch go real bad and lost all clutch fluid but the turismo rode home OK with no clutch lever!
Took almost an hour to fix Q&D and six weeks for MV to cough up a new switch.

3 LED of rear left blinker died.
The expensive unit was replaced on warranty.
Forgot to punch a hole at the bottom of the new unit.
First rain new blinker failed, half full of water.
Punched the hole, drained the blinker fluid and that was all.

The Turislow is fun to ride.
Good for some serious miles.
Slow it is.
Heaviest and the least powerful of the trepistoni family

but VERY sturdy and well designed.

Evidently proper care and maintenance will help a lot keeping it that way.

Scheduled maintenance was the only time at the shop.
And cost practically nothing or less.

the Turislow can go a lot farther on a tank than her trepistoni sisters!

Fun economy and durable, what's not to like on this bike?
