I'm not very interested in other MV's than Brutale. Althou the badge does improve the appeal a little bit. Probably wouldn't have bought it if it would have said "hyosung"... On the other hand, if hyousung would have such exclusive and beautiful bikes, the brand might be a bit more 'sexy' ?
I first saw the Tuono in 03. I liked it's curves but being an ignorant Honda loyalist, I was put off by the price. When it was time for something new last year I went to look at the new ones. It was way too tall for me. The saleman said check this bike out. It was the silver Brute with FBF exhaust. I rode it. I almost flipped it over a few blocks from the store. I loved the fact that it scared me. Couldn't stop thinking about it so I went back and saw the orange one. The rest is obvious.
Almost flipped it again tonight. I don't understand why but occasionally it comes up way quicker than usual. Probably just my skills are shit.
I went to a motorshow just to look. I saw the 1098s and was reeally impressed but a bit behind it there was a mv agusta. Just in a second we ran to the mv and I bought it and a friend of mine bought one too
got my bike license in '04.... started reading BIKE and TWO in London....read them cover to cover. Saw the Brutale in a review (i think a review). Summary section in the back summed it up in a few words, the one that caught me was 'exclusive'. So I'd always wanted one since.... here in TK the dealer is quite close, so there ya go!
(then i get on to this damn forum, this funny white F4 pops up, I ask, and peer pressure sent me to get my 2nd....ugh. expensive forum, this one.....)
The first time i saw a brutale i knew (promised myself) i'd own 1 some day. Simply the most beautiful bike i've ever laid eyes on. Tough, sleek, timeless lines and amazing curves. Oh.....they go like sssssstink
Don't worry. When I had Ducati I thought the size of a piston matters. But it doesn't. With smaller piston you still can have the same power. You just have to rev it.
... every MV rider knows that...
I first saw the MV back in 1998 and fell in love with the beauty of the thing. I didn't get one until 2001 but by 2006 I wanted one not because of the looks but because of the confidence the front end provides. No other bike has given me such confidence - which probably explains why I get tired of all my other bikes after a year.
My turn saw it first on the movie I Robot which BLEW me away. saw it (live) again few years later at a local dealer when trying to purchase my frist bike (daytona 675 at that time). A few months later same dealer had received a mint new 750 F4. So i bought it!!! for an F4 being my first motorcycle ever with absolutly no knowledge whatsoever about motorcycle i consider myself lucky and blessed. And so far im well over impressed on my the bikes performance and LOOOOKS of course.
