The "inherent unreliability" of the 3-cylinder MV's may yet turn out to be "not really that bad" once the real world numbers are tallied up. I personally know 7 owners of 3-cylinder "new" MV's only one of them has had recurring problems, the others have has maybe 1 minor fault, most of them quickly fixed under warranty. In total no worse than the BMW owners I know .. Only real difference being waiting times for parts, which has been an issue for MV.
I absolutely agree, but "not really that bad" and "no worse than XYZ" will not enough if you don't have proper spare parts logistics and a fair coverage with dealerships. The BMW example is perfect, these machines are far from defect free, but once your BMW bike conks out, BMW arranges for you to get going right away. This is of course not the path that MV Agusta can go, but continuous improvement not only in the performance sense, but also in regards to reliability is imperative. And from my (of course limited) experience MV has finally realized it and are working on it.

You can always stick to the 4-cylinders from the mid 00'es -- My 750SR is the 2. most reliable bike I've ever owned -- Singularly most reliable bike was my 1989 Honda VFR 750 .. 55.000 miles+ with not a single problem. That bike was sold to a friend who still has it -- Its now at 160000 miles -no engine rebuild -- Has worn away 4 sets of front discs :-D

kinda like many, many Italian made things? My new(ish) Alex Duetto espresso machine randomly drips from holes I didn't know it had, my brother's Guzzi is a leaky whore, etc. etc.

Sorry to hear you had such a bad experience though. Surely the new Japanese steed will give you thousands of cheaper, more reliable miles.
