Caught the Twist of the Throttle show on MV Agusta and I have to say, I am now a fan. The care and design that goes into that bike, and the pure passion, is really intoxicating. Watching how they hand build each one, I was struck how special that bike must be. Plus it looks great, makes 184 hp, and hits 190 mph. Yikes!! Wish I had room and budget for one.

I'd prefer the CC model, no rear sets either, although at $125k I'd be hesitant to hit top speed just because of the bugs on that beautiful paint!

Me too, the MV Augusta is the Lamborghini Countach of the motorcycling world.

and thankfully, Harley-Davidson has since divested in MV Agusta so they can no longer potentially contaminate the brand.

i spend a lot of time oogling the fiddly bits around the wheels, brakes, forks/swing arms. their attention to detail is droolable.

The 750 F4 has been on my "must have" list for a while, and they can be found for less than $10k used now. Too bad I have many other things on my "must have" list too ... !

With all the action you're going to get with that bike, I think the rear foot pegs will be put to good use!

And for us old men that just can't take the lay down versions - they look to have a nice looking sit up unit as well..
