MV Agusta Dragster 800 revealed

These are the first official images of the new MV Agusta Dragster 800 which cleverly wraps up the 798cc three-cylinder engine with 125bhp in the same chassis but with some new bodywork for a hardcore take on a naked roadster. The Dragster 800 has been seen a couple of times testing on the roads around the Varese factory in Italy but...

Pure essence, pure thrills?

It can't be any better to ride than the Brutale which is a far better looking bike! And 11 grand for half a bike????

And. .

Just looked at a close-up of the rear view. Does anyone else think the 800 Dragster stickers are going to get rubbed off with the riders knees? And that number plate bracket looks like its broken off the tail and dropped down behind the wheel. Sorry, its awful. MV have designed some of the most beautiful bikes ever but this is a mess!

The Kawasaki Z1000 ABS looks better, has much more torque, and costs over a grand less, and likely won't fall apart after one winter.

 I'd hope those stickers on the tank are laquered but being an MV you never know!

I like the looks and expect it will be much lighted than the Z1000, but they need to sort reliability and dealerships out before I'd buy one.

You need a seance to find one...

Yes, phoned local dealer in NE UK, to ask about new 800 F3, was told they've stopped ealing with MV due to availabilty issues, i.e.Delivery times/availabilty = How long's a piece of string, sick of waiting...

What's the point in buying one of these machines, when you're local showroom, may stop dealing with MV and you'll have to end up travelling half the length of Britain for parts, etc.

Although, to be fair, my local dealer did say, they would honour servicing them, didn't mention parts though.

As for the bikes themselves, the fit and finish isn't what one would expect of such an exotic machine, not bad, just not exceptional, but, that's my opinion....Just telling ya'.:unsure:

Yup, I'm done with novelty brands

Something like a Ural or Jawa or even a Royal Enfield may be unique enough to justify going a bit off piste and dealing with hands-in-the-air delivery estimates.  But MV?  Are they really offering anything significantly different, let alone better, than a marque that can offer spares and a warranty worth the paper it's printed on?

Oh good, another irrelevance with neither form nor function other than propping up an ego.

Next.

alright, calm down

Some real MV haters here, you must have all had some really bad experience with the previous MV's that you owned?

As for the dealers, would those in the NE happen to be the same ones connected with MotoGB who were until recently the UK importer for MV, I hear MV have a few choice words about them too?

Personally I've had no issues, I reported a warranty claim on mine with my dealer, within two days the parts were in and the bike fixed on the third? They also have in stock the latest 2014 ABS models of the Brutale and Rivale.
