Finally

So some of you may have known that my Brutale has been waiting for repairs since last October when I returned from the Gapalicious 2017.
What I thought would be a quick fix, turned out to be a long dragged out situation. There are a few people to thank for finally getting this matter settled, both from the tech who did the work to the general manager at MV USA.
IMO 4 months is an unacceptable amount of time and doesn't bolster MV's claim of "Super Premium"
I hope to now continue to enjoy my bike and make my way down to the Deal's Gap for Gapalicious 2018 this September.

You're totally right, 4 months in unacceptable.
And MV Agusta really needs to start doing something about this major issue since this isnt the only story about long repair times.
It costs MV new customers and it costs them current owners aswell. People that dont wanna deal with long repair time move on to a different brand.

Well today I picked up my bike, and went for a ride, it's been 4 months so I was really pumped to take it out.
Rode for less than 30 miles and the engine lost all compresion or that's what it seemed like, stalled and wouldn't start. Turn the key and nothing, not a sound........... WTF
It took 4 months to get it back, this is not good news.

The orignal issue was with the cam chain and tensioner. The chain some how was stretched and jump the gear. The tech seems to think it is caused buy extreme oil presure.... it maybe a design/engineering problem. I'm not that mechanically inclined so I don't really know the details.
They replaced the componets and it was running fine. I took it back home, went for a ride (it's been 4 months) which I was dying to do............... less than 30 miles and it died. I will know more next week when they have a chance to figure out what went wrong. I really am focused now on trying to buy a different bike, I'll keep this for now, but I have no confidence in it.

Man...that is bad. Kudos to you for still willing to keep the bike. I hear you about losing confidence on the bike. Worst thing.
It hurts to admit but sometimes one needs to own 3,4 or more bikes outside of MVs, depending of his/her needs.
On the other hand the 4 cylinder platform seems to be on another level of reliability(as much as I like the 3 pots...).
Other more experienced members should chime in, but maybe you should consider a 4-cylinder brutale?
The new one is coming of course...

Damn....how disappointing. It takes 4 months to get it fixed and when you finally get it back it shits the bed in less than 30 miles. Lemon law time.
