A lot has happened since the MV Agusta-Harley Davidson divorce. MV have launched a couple of new bikes, Castiglione passed away leaving his son at the helm and MV USA has apparently been restructured. It seems though that news (rumors) coming out of the factory are all but silenced. Does anyone with more insight to the company have any clue as to current happenings within MV?

Apparently Rob there is a lot hanging on the SUCCESS of the 675 triple. My sources tell me that MV Agusta can't afford for it to go 'Tit's Up' in any way whatsoever.
Judging by the 675's still available here in the UK it would suggest one of the following:

a) The predicted uptake has not been as oversubscribed as reported.
b) Folk have backed out of the deal for whatever reason.
c) The UK market has been over subscribed.

Lets hope that the factory doesn't have issues like Aprilia did with the RSV4 and now apparently, BMW with 1000RR where the engine has either to be teared down or even replaced.

Another piece of rip roaring positivity from Ade. The point of it is?

You absolutely never cease to amaze me, I am certain if you won £1,000,000 in the lottery, your initial reaction would be "If I live another 40 years that it would only equate to £6.85 per day". Geez you must be a blast to be around.

I really can't understand what your beef with the F3 is but surreptitiously, overtly and at any opportunity that presents or doesn't present, you paint a gloomy picture for both the bike & the company.

In future I would really love the to know the substance behind the standard authoritative Ade sentence starters such as:

"My sources tell me"
"I have been reliably informed"
"I have it on good authority"

I interpret those introductions as "What I am about to say is a bunch of unfounded crap but I believe it will sound more creditable if I couch it as......"

I have no option, as much as I want to bite my lip I can't (I know people here are sick of our stoushes), I am your polar opposite. - I am nonplus by the negativity you exude - you have made your point, over & over & over & over again. Will it end when someone other than your inner sanctum of followers utters (or types) the words "Yes Ade you are right!"?

Negativity is self defeating & a precursor to depression.

What is problem Ade? There is obviously a serious one.

:blah::blah::blah::blah:

Yet more condescending words!!

Absolutely no problem whatsoever with me Rob..................I think you may have a shock when one day you eventually wake up from your obsessive rose tinted malaise!!

What I have said is the truth and it is reality so.........

DEAL WITH IT !!​

Rob , wake up , instead of saying that everything Mv made or makes is perfect. IT,S NOT
You give your opnion on everything but when you can,t have it your way, like on this one http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=45342
you answer nothing.
I retired 6 months ago after being in the 2 wheels bussiness for more then 24 years , I know the way it goes nowadays.
The parts comes from China (after a long waiting time, you can,t send it back due to that), so the quickshifter on the new F3 sucks big time, the welds on the frames etc........
It,s not all bad off course , but try to keep a more open mind please.

Rob, you've made your point too.
I hope you stop attacking Ade soon.

Been to optimistic is also self defeating & a precursor to many disasters, just look at the worldwide credit crunch, that was caused by people been far to optimistic.

I do realise that you find the negitive facts regarding mv, sort of interesting? but the blind optimistic side of you thinks are irrelevant, a tad like a child really :thewife:
Or it could be that you just don't understand the seriousness of the situation and Ade is trying to enlighten you?
Remember grasshopper, people with closed minds are often just useless smug spectators:jsm: tring to look and sound interesting.

Well, must go now I'av got to ring MotoGB again:thewife: to see if they are in a position to have another go at repairing my brand new F4 1000RR. Now you would say that I'm been negativity, but Ade would say I'm been factaul, you would then interpret Ade's statment as been negitive again.:) have a nice day

I've met both Ade and Rob and they are both wonderful people.....so boys....., quitcherbitchin.

None of us would be here if we didn't have an affinity for the MV marque and products. So let's all hope the company continues into the future.
I have no idea what the UK market situation is, but from all reports the F3 is sold out in the USA for the year.
The bike racing in Europe taking a 4th place in its second race is a nice bit of news!

Censorship!!

Just tell me Ed .............

Are folk not allowed to post the truth on this forum anymore without Rob Rossi entering into a personal rant on the author if the content of the post doesn't suit him.

It would have been great if Audi would have bought MV Agusta rather than Ducati. Like BMW's Husky, Ducati under Audi ownership will now come out with more models,a larger dealer network, have better refinement, be more reliable all at less cost.

I can't help but feel that for MV Agusta, less is more...but then I am sure that there is a point on the graph Volume of sales/ Month that equates to Break even...

I'm glad that I'm not in their business..very tough place to be especially in the current climate..

So, Ade's point that MV can't afford anything to go tits up with the 675 is a valid one, or they won't achieve breakeven +

I understand what he means.

Well, I have seen first hand what BMW ownership has done to improve Husky and Mini as well as what Audi ownership has done to improve Lambos and Bentleys. So, it is reasonable to predict that Audi ownership of Ducati will reap similar results.

BMW "improving" the Mini isn't quite true. All BMW did was take the Mini name from the Rover Group then put a completely new and very different car on the market under the "Mini" brand.

For fucks sake Rob give it a rest will you?

Your getting boring now with your never ending having a go at Ade, if you can't handle the truth just put everyone on the ignore list.

I'll tell you what, I reckon your a twat, now have a go at me instead eh, i'm feeling all left out!!

I think they are financially OK at present with a fair few new bike to appear: Brutale 675 and obviously a fair few versions of that from std to Oro type I guess plus bigger 3 cylinder motors.............great times ahead for MV if they get the line up and product at 100%
