    AF1 and MV Augusta?

    Are you AF1 folks considering dealing MVs now that Ducati Austin is dropping them?

    That would be great as I have both an MV and an Aprilia. Same great service for both.

    ^^^ That's kind of startling. Only 2 dealers in the whole of the UK? I thought MV was much more popular over there than in the States.

    Everyone just got fed up of them there management are a joke they promised the world but don't deliver the service times are impossible I know one dealer that has been trying to return a 800 motor under warranty and has been charged for it becouse they can't get someone to collect it

    The local dealership here can’t give their last two bikes away. There’s a new 2014 Brutale 1090 for $10K and a 2016 Brutale 800 RR (forgot the asking price - maybe $12ish?). Both are less than they paid. Not only is the market soft here but they don’t like dealing with MV any more than Haga Lout does.

    Too bad cuz the bikes are pretty.

    The bikes are gorgeous just have silly things wrong with them bit like Ducati in the 80's but the staff it's like dealing with 4yearolds like getting a new warranty manager then letting him go on holiday for a month he emailed me on the Friday saying he was the new go to man then went on holiday and no one will do anything till he got back the list of things I've had to sort it's just not worth the hassle so as mutch as I like there bikes YOU LADS AT AF1 DON'T DO IT YOU HAVE BEEN WORNED!!!

    After Motus and Buell, twice bitten. Why?

    With the bike market today, wouldn’t be surprised if they go away or get consolidated
