Very true. But as you say, only if it's genuinely what you want. Just sayin, buying a TVL SCS at list price and then selling a few months down the road because it isn't what you though it was, is going to hurt your wallet big time. It all depends on your, head, heart and wallet. Listening to your heart is usually a lot easier with a full wallet!

However I have owned so many bikes now, am able to stop looking at alternatives all the time and thinking I'd be better off with 'one of those'. Sure 'one of those' might be better in some ways, but it'll be less impressive in others. Is the MV TV the 'best bike ever'? Well no, not really, but it's still a fantastic and unique bike to enjoy no matter what the alternatives may offer. Hard to imagine anyone constantly regretting purchasing.

Good luck with whatever you decide and I hope you can enjoy motorcycling for many years to come.
Thank you for taking the time to get back to me. Hope to ride next to you one day.
I don’t keep the tracer in the loop of possible bikes, not even close to the TVL beauty or ridability (I guess), at that point the Duc seems a better option. Suspension is one of key things in the decision making. Even if imported to the States, i spent over 30 years in Italy, the love for Ducati and MV is in the dna 🙂
It may be worth waiting an year for the TVL but first I’ll go to “sit test” (best I can do) both bikes as a dealer close by has 2018 Duc SSS and 2016 TV.

Any of you have complained about the rear brake or rear suspension on the tvl?
Does the TVl need a steering stabilizer? Or has some sort of wheelie control?

I’ll keep you all posted.

I should buy both 😉
if I have to be honest with myself.
I enjoy riding my vitpilen as well even if friends I ride with are not understanding from their r6, r1 or Harley point of you. And I’m trying to not sell it but I enjoy it for what it is...

I emailed rekluse to see if the tvl clutch would fit the F3 as well as I’m setting up to get a dedicated track bike. But if I get the tvl, leftover budget will just allow for a jap bike 🙂
