Indeed cash is king, however, sometimes it pays to finance. Depends on your financial picture.Do the math and be sure you understand trade offs. Another issue: will your MV dealer survive and offer warranty work? Mine went poof 4 months after buying my Dragster RR. All in all cash is king. I never finance bikes or cars.
Survival of the dealer is a question no one could answer. I have one dealer 1.5 hours from me in one direction and 2.5 the other way. Both have been around quite a while and have very good reps. But, you never know. Life is full of risks. That's part of the trade off.
