Back in dec The dealers seemed to really dislike this product based on renders i saw and consider it a hard sell. My understanding is MV weighted the feedback and decided to greenligh the yellow anyhow.Does MV have a 'horrible decision' department? If so, they're doing a great job.
Seriously. I saw one painted silver and it was glorious. Freaking yellow? Give me a break.Back in dec The dealers seemed to really dislike this product based on renders i saw and consider it a hard sell. My understanding is MV weighted the feedback and decided to greenligh the yellow anyhow.
This was even harder to understand in conjunction with decision to remove the black from the catalogue. But i digress, i am just a nobody on the internet..
Now there is some redemption with the white one, but price wise it is up there with the bigger boys because it has a premium acc package as base, so unless SV neo retro feel is absolutely your jam, i guess most will look elswhere.
I went to aprilia the other day to sniff around. I was looking at the rs660 to make it a dedicated track bike, which alot of people are doing now. Their liter bikes are def the best in terms of rider experience, along with BM 1000rr and r1, but the premium feel is absoluteley not there. I also looked at honda 1000 rr-r, but up close it feels real cheap in comparaison to MV.Seriously. I saw one painted silver and it was glorious. Freaking yellow? Give me a break.
Looks like I'm joining the Aprilia family this year.
In the release images they have many up close shots where you can see the color better. It really is yellow. What bothers me is how it just does not work with the gold frame.I will reserve judgment on the gold and silver until I see it in person. It may be stunning in the flesh....
This is the one i got my eye on. This is an S version, and comes with the new spoke wheels and the optional exhaust as standard, with the price to reflect that, albeit, were you to order the acessories off the catalogue for your base SV, you would have to pay more total.
And here the S version in white
Well, this is not an anti wheelie but a wheelie control. It is supposed to let you maintain a wheelie at a set angle depending on settings.As expected similar upgrades to that of the Dragster/Brutale
Personally not at all keen on the gold colour, bit of a traditionalist and will stick to the red/silver.
Not sure as to whether at the age of 79, that I would gain benefit from an anti-wheelie, maximum lean and launch control🤣🤣
But the new quick shifter should be an improvement.
Then of course there will be a price increase.
You should go to work for MV's 'bad decision' department because everything you just said was A material for failure and financial ruin. I didn't say I'd pay whatever it takes, I said if MV built a bike worth owning, I'd buy it
