I have a question ..... Dear MV Agusta, do you really think that the demographic you are targeting uses Facebook and Instagram?


FFS, I am the exact audience that is likely to buy a new bike (and can afford to) but don't use social media as it is the spawn of Satan.


(BTW, I'm in my 40s so likely to own lots of new bikes over the next 20 + years.)

But like to see full 16 minutes. (30 questions).
all i remember is there will be power cruiser (not like Triumph R3 not like Diavel what ever that means), TFT in all models in 2021, no new F4 in near future, who asked about private problems (parts, guarantie, long wait on service, etc) he answered "contact me directly and we will sort that...
and yes the RUSH is not limited :grin2:

I totally understand the strategy of focussing on the Brutale, Superveloce, etc. From a business administration point of view that all makes perfect sense. But it feels strange that the F4 is no longer on their webpage and the F3 is now the only left supersport/superbike model which again has not seen an update for 2020...

The company seems to head in the direction of Triumph with cultivating just a required minimum of Sport DNA. It is understandable as most of the clip on sports bikes are not making the finance departments happy, but still sad to see the decline of that segment. I am thinking back to times when every two (Japan) to four (Italy) years a new or at least heavily updated model was introduced by EVERY manufacturer. On the other hand, the performance of the remaining bikes has not been thinkable some years ago...

Flex I totally agree that manufacturers should concentrate on there money making main stream market. But being motorcycles are , lets face it. big boy toys … manufactures also need a WOW bike/Superbike in the line up. They do not have to make thousands of units even a small limited amout every year to complete marketing package/image.

Its the F4RR or F4RC in the line up? I saw an add for the 2020 F4RC on line from MV AGUSTA.


Being MV AGUSTA is the most exotic manufacturer on the market. CHINA will buy F4RR/RC F3RR/RC as fast as MV can make them.

Not a good answer about the parts/warranty question.
MV really needs to step up in that categorie.
That was answer on some private questions,not parts/warranty all in all, one guy asked why he is waiting one part for a months and he answered "that is strange, pls contact me directly"

A comment: Please give responsibility for marketing to anotherMVfanatic and the company he works at. Or anyone over 15.

A question: Does MV plan any electric bikes in the future, he who hesitates may be lost?

Guys don’t panic about the new F4 Superbike. There will be a new 950cc 3-cylinder engine with 170HP very soon. There were also previous rumors about new “F4” will be a hybrid with close to 300HP. So maybe it will not be a new 4-cylinder but hybrid F3 with the power to fight in the Superbike category.

My question was also answered and it was regarding parts and guarantee works in markets where they lost a dealer and how will they improve this in the future. He did not answer specificly but more in general like we are working to improve our dealer network but in the meantime you can contact us directly and we will help you...

If the upcoming F3 turbo concept that has been announced in interviews is supposed to later serve as replacement for the F4, then I would indeed panic.

The F3 is a great supersports bike and I sincerely hope they will keep it and finally give it the updates it deserves. But applying a turbo to the 3 cylinder engine will regardless of any displacement bump not be able to fight the current superbike class. The V4S, the S1000RR and the RSV4 have a linear power output of around 215HP, the Duc and the Ape through excess WSBK displacement and the Beemer by having shiftcam.

It would of course be possible to squeeze 250or maybe even 300 HP out of the F3 by charging it, but it will then be a snatchy straight line missile. If MV intends to apply a turbocharger (which I donot consider very desireable), then it needs to be at least applied to the four cylinder. If the bike that introduced the modern era of MV as an instant icon and the F3 that also made itself a name in the game will be merged to a F3+...that does not sound tempting to me.

So during EICMA 2019, you could ask Mr.Sardarov a question about MV Agusta.
I was choosen to be in the top 3 question, and few days after EICMA, a MV Agusta employee of the facebook page contacted me.

They send me a nice little gift :D
Beautiful t-shirt, 75 anniversary keychain & stickers. NICE!

My response on FB: a) need a Houston, TX dealer and b) my 3 year warranty is worthless, with 2 years left-- no dealer support.

My concern is that MV is giving priority to certain markets by giving them free checkups, lower prices for certain models, etc. but at the same time MV enthusiast around the world are facing a problem with dealers leaving the brand and leaving MV customers without proper after sales support. How will MV please those who are loyal to the brand but have no other options but to trade-in their bikes for something more useful...

If a dealer in Houston is not possible an authorized service tech sure would be nice. Also a little love towards USA MV Augusta owners would be nice.
