I thought it might be a nice idea to do a living with thread like bdtd has done with the 899 so here goes. I will obviously add to this as time goes on, reliability issues, service costs and my opinions/thoughts on the bike in general. I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. I have now covered just over 300 miles (half of the distance required to first service). Bad points first. Throttle response is a bit shady at sub 3k rpm you get a bit of surging and it can be hard work in traffic. I would not want to ride this bike as a commuter. I have improved the throttle by setting up a custom map on the dash using rain throttle sensitivity and full power everything else, and I feel like I am getting more used to the throttle with every ride so I'm not too concerned by this as I think it is predictable and is getting easier to live with and I don't have to commute on it. Slight oil weep from bottom of clutch cover aaahhhrrr!!!!. Just gave the cover bolts a very slight tweak up and seems to have stopped it. Will be keeping an eye on this . Good points Suspension was an area I was slightly concerned about after coming from the dayrona r's ohlins and the mv demo bike was set up extremely stiff. I had the budget for re doing the suspension but that is not going to be necessary, after setting the sag and a bit of twiddling at both ends this bike beats the daytona on handling hands down no matter what road surface youre traveling on it is totally planted and is without doubt the best handling bike I have ever ridden! The engine is strong and is something to behold. I am still running in at a sensible pace but know from the demonstrator that it is a proper weapon and more than enough bike for me. The looks Wow it is gorgeous! Build quality I'm impressed panels all fit nicely, nothing has fallen off yet. Time will tell with fastners etc. Electronics Very good. This bike has a new style dash, i think the batch my bike was built with is the first to have this dash fitted and it is easy to read and operate all the menus for engine maps, traction control, and abs etc. Quick shifter is better than the daytona one, although the gear lever does have quite a long throw but I am getting used to this. The bike comes with a trickle charger and has a pre wired charger plug under the passengers seat. The dealer Forza italia Silverstone I can't fault them so far, they have done everything they said they would, have kept me informed during the whole purchase process, Martin and Tracey are fantastic to deal with. This isn't a glitzy dealership with a cafe and a supermarket sized clothing department it is a small family run business that seems to trade on it's reputation and I like that. Extras so far 675.cc decals (that'll confuse a few) Gubelini steering damper Cnc racing rearsets Cnc racing short levers R+g tail tidy Small rear indicators Mv corse riders seat. Decal kit from pittys So far I am happy with the mv it takes a little getting used to certain aspects of the bike but I think those aspects are not serious problems. I can't wait to get the running in done and start enjoying the bike as it's intended to be.
