Ok, I am postting this hopen an Aussie MV guy out there will scan these articles.

Our latest Australian Motorcycle news has some great MV articles in it's latest edition.

1.0 They have an Australian version of Masterbike set at Sydneys Eastern Creek track. All the new Superbikes are tested by a series of average, good and expert riders and all run on Pirelli Supercorsa SP tyres. Then there is a road section.
The MV 312 faired very very well, with all pretty much saying it was the raciest bike of the bunch. The article is very comprehensive so I will wait to see of someone camn scan. But all the 1000's were within a fraction of a second to each other. Only the Kawsaki was a bit off the pace and the 1098S was about 3 seconds back and the KTM was way off.
More testers actually chose the Mv sas their favourite. The only really bad commenys were on extreme riding position and you have to want to ride a race replica.

It came 4th because it's lap time was the same as the others but the testers felt more familar with the Japanese bikes, that is all.
By the way the weights were intersting, the MV only about 7kgs heavier than all the new boys.

2.0 They have a test of the new Brutale 1078R and it gets a huge wrap up. Basically saying it is currently the best bike from any manufacturer... full stop. Even better than a 1098R.

3.0 There is a lengthy and detailed interview with CC and the future of MV. CC comes out firing saying that "another Italian comany" wants them to fail etc etc, it is a great interview and looks good for MV.
And yes there is an F1 ( A 65OCC SINGLE) and an F3( 675 Triple) ready to come, and he says Tamburini has excelled himself.

Great articles!

First highlighted red sentence.
If the testers look at it as just testing a bike (not a specific bike) without
knowing the background of the bike, I think that would be better.

Second highlighted red sentence.
F1......Hmmmm........That would probably sound a bit......like this...

excerpts from the mag (scanner caput)


Claudio Castiglioni personally took Cathacart for a tour of the R&D department where two finished variants of a single cylinder F1 machines were sitting on work benches and raw engine castings for the 675 triple F3 motor were visible.

"... stood a pair of single cylinder prototypes seemingly ready to be ridden, one an enduro wearing knobby off-road tyres, another a supermoto with street rubber each bearing the MV name on an all new twin cam radial valve engine ..."

Castiglioni said the two singles would form the basis for MV's future plans to expand it's range. ... currently evaluating whether to apply the F1 engine to another brand ...

... not an issue with the F3 which will be exclusively MV ...

the F3 was designed last year by MV engine guru Ezio Mascheroni and is ready for dyno testing before a projected launch at the 2009 EICMA show in Milan
