    Turismo Veloce 800

    Oh my! My Futura is safe for now. a 34" seat height and the nearest MV dealer being over 200 miles away might be the only reasons. Of course, sticker shock hasn't set in yet. It is purdy http://www.motoroids.com/news/unveil...mo-veloce-800/

    I freaking love it! Just a perfect sport-tourer (at least going by the spec sheet). I'm curious about the pricing, since MV has been pretty aggressive on some of their other models. If they can keep it around $15k and sort out the fueling issues, they might have a gem on their hands.
    With great power to weight ratio comes great responsibility.

    There's bound to be a first of everything, and that's the first fugly MV, imo.

    This, coming from someone who owns a Dorsoduro, doesn't cary much weight.

    Decent review here. I love this bike but yeah the 850mm seat height is a major deal breaker for me.

    Canadian site says the price includes 2 years of scheduled service. That's another 2-3k off the price.
