The general conses out there is that this is one of the finest handling motorcycles currently sold . A bike that has multiple personalities and will ease itself into whatever you throw at it.

A splendid electronics package that will match any new bike out there. Cornering abs, semi automatic suspension, heated grips etc etc. It looks smashing for a race tourer. There are other things but you get the drift.

But the most important thing is, that it is a MV. And when people buy a MV, price and value is often not the first thing considered or of relevance. This is not your run of the mill Kawasaki or Suzuki. It is a proper exotic.
It is undiputed world over that when your ride an MV, the over all experience is far greater than the individual parts.

And if it has something to do with spare parts and dealer delay, source your own parts. Why depend on the dealer.
Someone in my bike group has a F3 - he was involved in a minor crash which meant replaced of a few fairing parts and headlights. MV asked him for full payment upfront - then made him wait for 6 months to deliver the parts - and failed to deliver a few of them. And when he got the parts - they were refurbished to boot.

In this case - sourcing yourself doesnt work because then insurance will not pay for it.

BTW - he did try sourcing some of the other parts himself from one of the biggest MV dealers in Europe. The dealer told him there is no guarantee of timelines for MV parts - as MV factory themselves dont know when they can dispatch even against firm order.

Hence if you have lots of spare cash lying around to buy a bike and display in your showroom - go ahead and buy an MV in India. If you want to actually ride it - best of luck.

When you buy an Italian Exotic from a small manufacturer, the price you pay to be exclusive from everything else on the road, you are also signing up for the logistic limitations that come with it. When you are buying something so rare, somewhere you are also taking an inherent risk. And it is a known fact world over that MV seriously lacks in the service department and dealer availability.

Happens with all high end exclusive manufacturers around the world.

Thanks for reaffirming what I said - buy an MV and keep in your drawing room for everyone to see.

PS: even in that case don’t buy this ugly duckling - buy something like the Brutale which looks the part

Drawing room or Road, buy one at once, they are discounting first 3 units


They have also announced a discount of INR 2 lakhs for the first three buyers of the Turismo Veloce 800 which means that the lucky customers will get the motorcycle at 16.99 Lakhs!

I remember the F3 fell apart when I went to test ride one. And their reps and CEO just acted cocky instead of agreeing to the problem. Have also seen reports of a swingarm breaking on a ride with the reps (some Arzoo lady) fighting and calling customer names on Facebook!

I would not buy an MV even if they gave me 80% off. No amount of money is worth risking your life. The build quality isn't Italian and you're not fooling anyone. Avoid!

For people saying it's pricy .I doubt they will be making any money on the bikes sold even at that price. I think the entire MV India operation is a loss making one even at the extremely high end pricing on the bikes. I sometimes wonder why do they even bother.

I remember in early 2018 they were liquidating a few F3 800 from 2016 & 2017 models from the last lot, and offered heavy discounts to a friend but they were still finding it hard to dispose them at that time. He said he saw a few Norton bikes also. So not sure if they are going into a bigger fiasco this time around.

Looks a lot like the old Ducati Multistrada designed by Pierre Terblanche (aka Mr. RE Himalayan)

It wasn't too long ago that Ducati also belonged to the exclusive club of Italian exotics, prone to temperament and frequent failures. So riding one meant you were either a good mechanic yourself or had access to a good one. Riding an Italian exotic was a statement.

Since then, Ducati has been pedestrianised and have given the junta an expectation.

Is it a good thing that MV has stayed true to it's roots? Motorcycle world is full of futile arguments like this.

Cheers

Ride Safe

As per the Fast Bikes India instagram page, apparently Motoroyale has winded up their MV Agusta operations in India and the unsold inventory is now being offered at massive discounts.

There have been multiple WhatsApp forwards in the recent past with mention to the massive discounts available on the unsold motorcycles, specially the Turismo Veloce 800.
