    For me the most amazing bikes. If you want a Ferrari as a bike it has to be an MV (......ok ok or ducati :).

    Please post you MV's.

    I'll start with my 2005 F4 1000S

    i know. saw the teaser shot. looks pretty good. guess they just made it a little more "modern".

    still like the 2005. it was the last year with the traditional color scheme and original logo.

    If Harley cannot find a buyer for MV, this thread might be documenting what used to be :(

    VW are interesed, Chinese are interested, ex part origional owner is interested, Piaggio is interested.......

    NO problem in finding a buyer, lets not forget you also are getting C A G I V A as a job lot.

    To save HD embaressment they just shut down buell, NO interest! :)

    The F4 returns to 1000cc, meaning it is now legal to race again in World Superbike (or at least Superstock). Engine is down about 7 hp to the BMW (186 vs 193 measured at the crank, or perhaps at the sales brochure).

    Slightly different looks, nose is sharper and all bodywork is tweaked a bit. Xenon headlight and different exhaust pipes.

    For those not familiar this is SPO1 "Special Parts" MV. All of the body work is carbon including the gas tank. The entire exhaust is TI. Wheels are Magnesium. I have only run across 3 others in the US. Sorry about that red thing in the back ground ruining the shot:)

    I just read H-D will name who will handle sale of MV soon. Supposedly,have several interested buyers,H-D said they paid 70 million euros for the company when they bought it only a short time ago.I really hope it goes to someone or group who has not only the funds but the passion to keep the marque going and true to its heritage and not change it in to some cheap commutercycle.JMHO.

    Cant agree more! I bought my MV January 2009 it has 570KM on it. The rest of the time I just drool looking at it.

    Love the garage by the way.

    the best thing to do would be buy two bikes, one to ride and one to look at...that way you can have a good looking bike that represents the way the bike inspires you, and an ugly bike with some real mileage that you can hide under a cover in the back of the house :)
