Poll: Would you buy an MV Agusta?

Next week's MCN (out July 11) features the world first ride of MV's new Brutale 675. It's a three-cylinder, 120bhp naked bike that's pitched at Triumph's Street Triple R. Price is expected to by under £8000, making it the most accessible new MV for decades. But, assuming it's a great bike at a reasonable price, would you buy one? Or are...

Lets just hope

they get the fueling right on this one!.

If it was my 8k I'd be buying a new pre reg'd Tuono R V Twin, simples.

Underpowered

At the end of the day it is only a 600 that is too track biased to begin with.

The bigger Brutale is not selling and the ones that do have hideous residual values.

I love the marque and they look great but dealers rare and running costs (especially insurance) is high. Would never buy one.

I have to agree with Preunit, Aprilia Tuono is the way to go.

British Weather

I ride my bike in all weathers and wouldn't be convinced of the MV holding up to the tortures of road salt, grime and other generic road crud.

Lovely looking though but give me a Japanese 4 pot anyday over an exotic brand for commuting/shopping/seaside runs/etc.

MV is falling way behind

MV, needs a rescue.  Ducati did very well to be bought by VW/Audi, now MV needs to find a home with a basement full of cash.. 

Other Euro brands are leaving MV way behind.  Look at thew new Ducatis, Triumphs and BMWs.  MV is still basicallty selling the same design from 1999 and it's 2012 already. 

In the US, MV's hardly register.  They have zero marketing or promotional support and if they keep this up, they'll lose the few remaining dealers.

I ride my bike in all weathers too, and just covered 2500 miles touring europe on it and it never missed a beat. Oh did I say it was an MV too? :)

Weird

The brief ownership of the MV Augusta by Harley-Davidson was weird - don't think the management used to selling bikes based on nostalgia to people who actually think mechanical crudeness is a feature and not a bug have a clue to sporting bikes.  Daimler-Benz ownership would be a good fit, as they could compete with BMW and VW-Ducati.

I did buy one, got carried away with lust and got bitten for it..........  in 18 months of ownership it spent more then 9 months of it with the dealer with an electrics problems.

There is poor after sale support from MV with the dealer network getting smaller as they leave MV to go sell other bikes that give them less grief.

I'm not going to sell it and will live with the problems but I don't ride it much anymore and it is never seeing a track again.
