Dealer recommendation - Southern England

Hi guys,

First post - and asking a bit of advice from your experiences...

Anyone recommend a good dealer in the South of England - this would be a first MV for me and I'm kinda thinking that good dealer backup would be important, so I want to start with somewhere that looks after the customers.

Reading Squidger's review of the guys in Waterlooville wasn't very encouraging - but was he just unlucky or is this the norm?

And feedback based on personal experience would be appreciated

Hi Dudman,

I'm quite close to Winchester and work up nearer to Heathrow - but we don't seem to be exactly spoiled for choice on the dealer front

Forza Italia at Silverstone

Not exactly South but worth the effort IMO

Thanks CharLy - I didn't find the guys near salisbury in my searches.

So no recommendations for the two closest to me then;
Hampshire MV in Waterlooville or Black Dog in Staines.

Is that 'cos no-one has tried them or because they're not well regarded???

I don't think Black Dog in Staines are dealers anymore? I had my 920 serviced there twice and they were good a couple of years ago . Only a tiny shop though .

What about alf's in worthing? They have a good reputation as a dealer and are building a whole new two floor showroom just for MV's . A good selection of bikes there also . I only popped in as I was passing a few weeks ago but will probably get my 800 serviced there in the next month or so.

Brutale 800 Italia
Monster 796 .

Weird thing the web isn't it?

According to the Black Dog website their Staines location is one of the biggest MV dealers in the area.

Conversely, Alf's (which I saw recommended elsewhere on the forum) say they are Kawasaki with no mention at all of MV - confusing!!
