First Rivale ride

Well... Today I had the privilige to ride the Rivale. Thanks to my dealer Dipi-moto. The weather was also nice, so lucky me!

The first impressions!

This looks like a real MV Agusta and is beautiful although different than we know from MV. The technique is similar to the 3 cilinder range I guess. Nice detail is that the led daylights are in the ends of the steer.

When you sit and ride it it gives the feeling that you have almost nothing in front of you. Supermoto of off road riding position. I did not like that too much as I was sliding to the front and my nuts got squeezed. Also my knees were pushed a bit outwards by that bump that is there. Besides that the position is kind of cool.

The riding itself is great and funny enough reminded me of the Cagiva V-Raptor I once had. Also soundwise, but more revv happy. Very good and easy on short turns. Plenty of power for such a bike. No problems with the throttle response, but I am not that critical on this. But it went fine. On higher speeds the front gets a bit light so I guess that it capable of much more speed than will be comfortable. I had a bit of lack of riding experience, but maybe that is also because I used to the extreme F4.

In the end a great and complete bike! Personally I would not choose it and favor a Brutale next to the F4, but this is of course personal preference. Anyway... I did enjoy the ride

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

This is not MY bike I think. Will stay with my Brutie.......

BTW:
Moto.it did ride the Rivale too. Here is what they say:

If you do not understand Italian give Google translator a chance .

I motori sono come le donne, bisogna saperli toccare nelle parti piu' sensibili.......

Well that sounds very good to my ears talking about MV's development! A new toy to our collection, can't wait to try it someday somewhere...

Awesome Erik. Thanks for sharing. Not a bike that I would own either but model line diversification is a healthy and promising sign in my book.

Yeah he says that now, put it in a group test with a triumph, BMW or a Ducati (as that is his current long termer) and it will magically become a pile of shite
Much the same as they did with the Brutale 800!

Interested in anything that Sucks, Bangs and Blows!

Chris...
You need to get over this and move on mate... You're beginning to sound like my wife, about me piling up the washed dinner dishes in a Jenga Stylie..

“ I told you the plates would drop and break on the floor.. "Now we haven’t got a complete set “… “ This is the third time you’ve done this”… “ Why don’t you put the plates away like any normal person”…..

“ Errrrrr… because my ancestors were Greek and we like smashing plates”.. ... " Get over it"...

At this point we don't talk to each other for 2 years...






Not really, I make it all up !
