Exclamation X-Ducati guy

Hi Guys, new to this site and MV

Need some help on the Stradale and Rivale.

I have been a Ducati loyal for years started with SS750 and grew up into the SBK1198 and did some track in between. I sold my last bike two tears ago and I am back on the market but this time no SBK's. I have been looking at the Diavel and Multistrada, Streetfighter, etc. and started to loose interest in the brand and looks. I also started to venture out of my comfort zone and MV is the most interesting to me. I like the Stradale for one of it's color scheme (brown) but I see that the Stradale has lees torque and top end MPH then the Rivale. Is there a lot of difference between the two. Also, I think the Duc SBK749 was plenty of fun for me at the time I had it, will the Stradle match up to it on the road. Sorry for throwing all these questions, divorces (brand name that is) are tough. and thank you!
Enrico

Do you have an MV dealer near you? You really need to ride them. I'm coming from a 1098S, then 40K miles on an RSV4 Factory. I have a Rivale in red/silver that I love. It has had its own challenges, including a new motor at 2,400 miles but the support from MV and Ducati/MV Austin has been fantastic.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

Hi TheX. I live in SFO bay area and I have three dealers within 45 min of each, I just wanted to get some inputs before I go and ride one because it's had to walk away empty handed What was your first thoughts (power wise) when you rode the MV after an RS?

The 800 triple is a fantastic motor. I fell in love on the test ride. It's not as fast obviously, but it is just as fun.
