Since the initial run will be limited edition it makes sense now why the SV is priced so high. I can wait until a used one with 500 miles on it comes on the market for sub 20K. :) I'll also be waiting to see how the unlimited edition will be different and it's price.

The only 'surprise' as far as I am concerned is that MV Agusta will experience financial difficulties if it insists on continuing to produce bikes as fugly as the SV.

:smile2: Too each his own. It is different but it has imagination and style, I expect nothing else from MV, whether that fits into your preference or not. Unlike all the new offerings from Japan and Germany/Austria. Clones of the same old same old. I actually like it and would be a player if it is priced more like the F3 it is built from.

MV has historically done things a little bit differently but, unlike you, I don't see this as imaginative. I see it as a cynical marketing ploy to reimagine a bike from the days when MVA had racing pedigree and now looking to cash in on the memory.

I respect your opinion. No doubt that's the intent but the fact that it is re-imagined, as opposed to a copy, is what makes it different from the clone manufacturers, at least to me. While it harkens back to the glory days it's certainly not a copy of anything they built previously. Can't say that for the non-Italian European and Japanese throwbacks. We all want MV to succeed so if this helps them cash in, I'm all for it.

We can definitely agree on that :)


I just worry that MV is heading in the wrong direction. Very limited edition bikes for F1 drivers, gold bling and an obsession with how good they once were at racing.

I get your point. They've always had special edition bikes with a toned down version available for those of us that are not aliens. As long as they keep that going they should be fine. (Fingers crossed emoji here)

Over here in Australia, the Oro is going for $72K rideaway and when I spoke to a local dealer about the 'normal' version they said they were expecting it to be in the $40K to $50k range. So I suppose in a way they will be more 'affordable' for some, being 30 to 40% cheaper than an Oro. This is quite a step up from the $25k for a 1090RR in the past, seems like the 4 cylinders are going to be a 'premium' motorcycle for MV.

If those estimates are accurate then there may be some hope for B4 Brutale prices....
