I have a chance to buy a rather new CC untouched.

What should i consider a fair price? Full warranty and comes with watch.

I would be trading my 2002 bostrom for it and some cash of course.

Thoughts? Or should i just get a DR16?

True - but based on the advice/experience of any recent CC buyers or sellers would be helpful.

They have been seen on the market here in the UK for around £35,000. That's around $55,000. You didn't say what the asking price was. With something like that it depends how much you really want it.

I don't have that kind of money but if I did I don't think I'd want to pay more than the £35,000. The watch means nothing to me, I'd sooner put the money into a Patek Philippe or a Rolex, but it might be something you want, I'm not you. The Desmodesici would certainly be worth looking at IMO, but then they have been cheaper than £35,000 in the UK too.

It's got to be your call at the end of the day.

Are you buying it to ride, as an investment, or as an art object?

If you're buying it to ride, and your skill set is up to it, I believe I'd buy the Ducati. If your middle name is not Hayden, Spies, or Rossi, either bike is wasted on you.

As an investment, I think I'd buy the MV if it's cheap enough. Cheap enough in my book is something around $50K for a perfect, low mileage, unmolested example.

As an art object, buy a Tambo. Ten years from now, the Tambo will be worth more than the CC, because it is generally considered the highest art form in the MV universe. It is universally loved, unlike the CC. You can find very nice, low mileage Tambos in the low/mid $30's.

Thoughts?

I second the comments on the Tamburini. I have seen as new Tambos in the US with under 400 miles for sale for under $23K US.

For me I think the Veltro Strada would be the ultimate MV bike to own. Pista is lovely but not streetable. It's a Tambo with different clothes and much scacer. In lieu of that I agree with the others that the Tambo is the MV to have. I had one and I'll tell you they are gorgeous, limited, and go like hell. Only reason I sold it was I had too many bikes and it was the best shot at getting a decent price out of all of them.

I agree that the DR16 is more techonological, buthe CC is just so good looking.

While i know the Tambo is unique, just not my cup of tea...to much gold for me as I had a 1000cc Senna and the CC looks like it's grand dad!.

The vetro is awesome, but would probably be to expensive.

I saw the CC in the flesh, jut georgeous. Now i have to decide.

Just how much is the CC? You're looking at a CC, and wondering if a Veltro is too expensive? I'm guessing the same ballpark money for either of them!

How much do you want to spend? What's your comfort level?

Do you regret selling it Lee?

If you are trying to buy either a CC or a Desmo and you cant decide which one, then I said buy them both. That is what I did ...:f4:

Well, the guy is not trying to decide between a CBR 600RR and a R1 used, he is talking about the 2 most exclusive bikes (maybe, imo) out there and if you can buy one, then you should be able to get both. And if not the case, then he should stay away from both as the maintenance on either the D16RR or the CC are wayyyyy more expensive than in any other bike (including the fact that you could need parts if they go bad, and they will)

Not necessarily Hernan. I could afford to buy one or the other, but probably not both and stay married.......We do all acknowledge that this is stupid money anyway, right? I could maaaaybe pull off a $50-60K purchase, but north of $100K.....nope. It's not the $100K, it's the quid pro quo that I'd be spending on my wife....likely to cost way more than the $100K.

I wouldn't buy either bike, because I'm not half the rider capable of utilizing either bike. Furthermore, as a confirmed Brutie guy, I wouldn't want to sully my reputation by purchasing a F4, (even a CC). :jerkoff:

Either way, I agree with your thoughts on service. That might actually tilt me one way or the other, based on the perceived quality of the Ducati dealer service versus the MV dealer service.

Hes,

Can you post some picts?

I cannot afford both, but love the idea of course!

Rand, aren't most MV dealers, Ducati dealers? The majority i dealt with are both, except for one that i know.

I am leaning CC for a couple reasons: a can snag one for a reasonable price, it is one of around 20 in teh country but only 100 ever made vs. DR16 with 1500 made, it has looks to kill, and doesn't need to be ridden that much to be appreciated and has 200hp!

I have a 1198s 2010 to be my real rider and with more torque than the dr16 it is perfect for around town riding and highway for public roads.

The only thing i am concerned though is MV...even after the latest buy back, it is still practically impossible to find a simple hat here in the US.
