Turismo review by a potential owner

A friend of mine who currently rides a 09 Yamaha TDM900 is on the hunt for a new bike. He has test ridden a good variety of stuff and always writes a very eloquent review of each one he has tried. So far a couple of Triumph models, a selection of BMW GS bikes, a KTM and last but not least a MV Turismo. He seemed to really enjoy the MV, but I think he will wind up going for a Triumph

His review is here and gives a interesting insight of normal rider rather than a journo

Apologies to the mods for the link, but I think it is a good post for the Turismo owners

I have almost 6K miles on an XRx, am looking to add the Turismo as a second bike. If he wants my experience with the XRx, point him my way (plus I had an '08 GS for about 6 years). The Turismo interests me because it seems to be a bit more towards the sport side of things and...well...it's Italian . The XRx is a very good bike, and for a shorter rider it works well. In my case I'm 6'1" and I ended up getting a *higher* saddle to give me more legroom. Interested to see how the Turismo fits me.

If he is thinking about going for the MV the lower suspension option does cause issues with the sidestand. The MV site does list a lower seat option (not very low though!).

He blamed it on a Classical eduction, which is odd as he is from Gloucestershire...

His words...

Haha! The curse of a classical education..... Did I spell MV correctly?
