Do I presume he has the rest of the body work? Normally you start with photos in full body work.
It's a strange listing for such an expensive asking price, very amateurish.
Lets hope it is in showroom condition after 8000 miles.

Well calculate the price of the Mg parts + the price of the carbon parts.
Mg swingarm + wheels + frame plates + lower triple clamp = roughly 12000$.
Complete carbon set, I mean air box, tank, fairings upper, left, right, lower, battery tray, mud guard, tank panels, air ducts, air covers, rear mud guard, tail unit etc = might 8000$.
If You ever get all this stuff again.
Negotiate a little and You might get it for 26000$
Than I think You are anywhere in the region of a standard 750.
Sure the presentation is shit but You never know.

Ralf......you're not advocating the parting-out of an ORO, are you? Unless the bike's been heavily crashed, I'd hate to see someone part out any of the special editions......yikes. :jsm:

I think Ralph means what I was also thinking Randy, that if you had to try and buy those parts to built an ORO, then it might cost you close to this asking price, for a replica.
Therefore, this price might be close to the mark, if the bike is in great condition of coarse.

It's high summer in NZ. I'd bet he's either sunbathing nude in his back yard, or riding one of his bikes. :)
Now, now Randy...you know David is so bashful that he goes into the closet just to change his mind!

Randy as Donsy said the material costs alone are justifying the price.
From where do I know?
Well my F4S will be soon lacking the top, left, right, lower CF fairings and the lower Mg triple to an Oro only.
And I got the Mg parts for lower than resale prices.
The Oro had from everything the finest except the engine.
Challenged only by the CC which has some finer parts and a bomb of an engine.
Might the Veltro to, but Senna's, Ago's, Corsa's,... are ashamed of an Oro.
Not to mention it was the first new age MV Agusta presented and in production.

I understand Ralf....
My point is that these special editions (typically 300 units or less) should be preserved as much as possible for future generations. I'm not advocating not using them, just preserving them. When one special bike gets parted out, that's one less for future appreciation.

That being said, if someone's parting out a special bike, and a magnesium swing arm becomes available, I'd grab it too. I get that.

I'm to Randy!
For me is an Oro an Icon and I would never in my wildest dreams salvage it.
