Don't get me started on the man buns......Makes sense to me too, the sportbike market in the states has been depressed, new riders are looking for cafe bikes:surprise::surprise::surprise: OK, I just removed the comment about manbuns and tats lest I be considered offensive!!
You're right. Since Ducati V4 now has a CRC and has good reviews, it wont take long for yamaha/kawasaki/honda you name it to follow.What I wish would have happened for this year is that MV produced a reverse crank F4. Ducati has the Pani V4 with reverse crank and its being reviewed highly positively. I understand why seeing some of the benefits the F3 has from the reverse crank. If MV and Ducati both had an offering like that this year everyone would win!!
Its interesting watching development and racing vs regulations. I love the visionary aspect of MV and its courage in decisions.
If you've got miles of hair you're allowed to control it however you see fit. I used to have long hair too.I got a man bun Tuck away those miles of epic waivy hair.>
Kinda bummed for the overall industry, to read that literbikes are perceived for old guys? The sales-man at the the dealer I went to was just a kid. He helped me buy they F3, and then went and got himself a Stradale. Which is a cool bike too, but maybe that's the market MV is further honing in on man-bun money > with a 1000cc retro Brutale.
And the F4 will need to breathe fire and have a "Ludicrous button" to be appealing enough?! I just hope it doesn't become anything like the H2, which was kinda cool, but sorta ridiculous at the same time...
