MV Agusta Reliability?

So I'm putting a deposit on a Turismo Veloce Lusso. Very excited and hope it shows up by late summer. This bike really speaks to me aesthetically as well as the features. It is the high end compact tourer that I've been looking for.

Anyway, I'm not all that familiar with MV Agusta reliability. This will be my first foray into the MV brand. My assumption is that it is like most Italian stuff. Needs a little more love in the shop. However, I also don't want to find myself with a piece of garage art that I never get to ride or is totally unreliable on longer days out. The other thing that concerns me is that there is only one local dealer, however, they appear to have very good ratings from what I can tell.

My experience is that MVs are extremely reliable relative to other exotics. It's not a BMW or a Honda (how could it be?). Given proper maintenance you should enjoy many thousands of happy miles without a glitch.

That said, the triples were all new when introduced and MV is a small company, so there were some teething problems. Pretty sure they are all worked out by now.

My "old" 910R has been a very reliable bike....and also very easy to work on!!

Many initial new bike problems are simply poor set-up by the selling dealer. Leave it stock for the break in period and a while further,. Get to know her first, then if you start making the inevitable mods you'll know if they are improvements or cause problems.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Thanks for the reply. I grew up in Atlanta and used to race BMX at the Peachtree City track back in the day (Late 80s, early 90s).

I'm really itching for the Turismo. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. I'm on a BMW c600 right now and it had some teething problems, but fortunately, mine has been rock solid.
