Money? That would be my guess. I think it was Proton or Modenas who just sold MV for; get this.....1 Euro. Can you believe that? I don't know who the new owner/owners is/are but until there is some infusion of cash there likely won't be any race team, nor any bikes in production.......sean

Yeah, and whomever bought it for 1 euro immediately inherited like 60 million in debt.

MV Augusta is racing some SBK races as a wildcard for 2006. They are supposed to begin their SBK racing campaign in 2007.

Ride safe.

I wonder if 60 million is a good deal :confused:

Try 120 million!!! That's why Proton gave up the 82 million they paid a couple of years ago....

I hear MV agusta will be releasing 18 new retail models (including scooters) by 2020! They plan to return to GP with a 125cc and 250cc in 2007, and utilize the cc reduction sauce in motogp next year! Can't wait! Biaggi has been rumored to be in top secret talks with the new MV guys...

Ya it is...to bad it's not as fun as an RSVR Factory. I was talking to a guy up at the rock store and he has both, a factory and an MV....needless to say he was riding the Aprilia.:)

You got that right!
And to have an Aprilia AND a MV Agusta parked next to each other in your garage would be pure excellence...

I replaced my 2001 MV Agusta F4S with my current 2001 RSV MilleR. The only thing that will make me go back is if the 1000cc model comes standard with components that match the factory Aprilia bikes, i.e. Ohlins all around and radial brakes. The 2006 1000cc F4S still does not have all that. Until then, I'll hold onto my MilleR.

The standard brakes on the F4S were worthless. The front binders required pulling the lever all the way to the handlebar for every stop and the rear was for decoration only. You might as well not use it because it does not have any effect whatsoever on the bike.

It's nice decoration, though.

For the 2.5 years that I owned the MV Agusta, it spent 2 years in my living room as the centerpiece. The wife got tired of it.

Blackstone Tech (BST CF rims) recently sent me an e-mail with pics of an MV set up for (I think) the British SBK series...

Can anyone on that side of the Pond confirm that?:confused:

The 2007 come stock with brembo's and Ohlins. Looks like the are asking$1500 more then the 06 model. Should help big time. You are right, the brakes on my F4 are close to worthless.
