Turismo RC model

Looks like a RC Turismo is on the cards. From the bit of bike shown looks like a different colour scheme, seat looks red and black. Not sure on what else will be included.

Probably the smallest piece of carbon fibre or anodised aluminium they think they can get away with and a plaque reading "001-250 (or how ever many we can shift)"

Interested in anything that Sucks, Bangs and Blows!

at the risk of upsetting some people, does anyone else feel that this sort of thing only detracts from the brand? It definitely does no favours for the "RC" tag.......but then again I guess the F3 was no better

Not offended and I agree. However, if there's the market for it then what's to stop them milking those members of the buying public no matter the relevance of the paint-job to the model.

The MTS Pikes Peak has more credence and adds value through different/better components albeit at a significant price hike.

Wondering if the cable actuated clutch is seen as an added value improvement? Presume that it's a recycled prototype in new clothes, either that or a Photoshop job on some early photos...

Personally I think it stinks of desperation, but then these are desperate times for MV so needs must I guess and if there are existing owners queueing to trade their bikes in to pay a premium for one the same but with a paint job then that's their call.

Reminds me of Suzuki's Alstaire Corona GSXR limited edition, they made so many that the classic blue and white ones are actually worth more money now

I just think a race rep paint job should be on a race rep. Doesn't look right otherwise.
