New TVL owner from Scotland saying hello!

Hi folks

Just a quick forum hello as I wait for my TVL to be prepped ready for collection at the start of next month.

I have enjoyed reading just about every TV-related post on the forum and really appreciate the friendly MV community here.

I'm moving to a TVL from a Ducati ST3, which made a wonderful trip back to the place of its birth earlier this summer. A DVT MTS was the preferred replacement but couldn't resist something lighter and more exotic, with a better set of features.

Ironically, I was somewhat underwhelmed after a test ride as it didn't feel fast or torquey, and the engine sounded rough, but I realised I was riding it in the wrong way!

Congrats and welcome. I had an ST2 for awhile - fun bike but very different than the TV.

The TV is no twin, so if you ride it like one you'll certainly be a bit disappointed. The engine will get better and better as it breaks in - I found somewhere between 3-5K miles it opened up. I also put on a QD exhaust which I think helps as well. Beyond that, I haven't found much that I need to add or change. I put some different pegs on and actually may go back to the stock as I think they were more comfortable to me. I did add a slider as well, but the bike is pretty much ready-to-rock as-is.

Welcome Cripes. As nostatic says, as the miles increase the sweet engine seems to loosen up/bed in. Maybe, to a certain extent, it's acclimatisation but I perceive mine as improved with use.

Test rode a DVT MTS but the TV is more 'me' despite being down quite a bit on power. The overall package is better and the lighter weight, sharper handling and addictive triple sound track sooo good. Thus far I've tracked it (not it's ideal habitat TBH), toured on it and generally hooned around. Heading up to Allendale with a bunch of mates next weekend, brief cross border raid is on the schedule. Where abouts in Scotland are you?

Thanks for the welcomes guys!

I sometimes felt the ST3 had too much power, so looking forward to getting to grips with a triple that likes to rev. A while ago I had a KTM 390 Duke for a bit of a change and enjoyed wringing its neck on a regular basis! Totally unsuitable for touring of course, hence the interest in a sporty, lightweight tourer like the TV.

I'm from Orkney and probably the only MV Agusta owner here :-)

I'm in the running mine in having just picked it up this week and even though I've got to stick to reduced rpm ranges its still great . One of fav bikes was my 1st Ducati a 900 superlight back in the late 90s (apart from the snapping headstuds) so I got another a few years back which I still own, its so much fun as its only got 70odd bhp you can get the throttle pinned without too much trouble

Here's a pic from the showroom, before my test ride. The bike is ex-demo so I suspect there's a few folk on here who've ridden it (thrashed it?!).
