My lovely MV Agusta Brutale 990R - I took delivery 24 February 2015.  
Why an MV Agusta?  Because of the name, the looks, the style, the engineering, the pedigree and now (surprisingly) affordability:-
  • Originally owned by Count Agusta (The aristocratic equivalent of Enzo Ferrari).
  • Winner of 270 Grand Pix races
  • Winner of 37 World Grand Prix titles
  • Winner of 17 consecutive 500cc GP World Championships
  • Winner of 34 TT Races
  • Ridden to championships by the true greats Cecil Sandford, Les Graham, Carlo Ubbiali, Tarquinio Provini, John Surtees,  Mike Hailwood, Gary Hocking,
    Giacomo Agostini and Phil Read
  • MV Agusta was revived by Claudio Castiglioni
  • MV Agusta's are designed by Massimo Tamburini (who cut his teeth on the Ducati 916)
  • Some fabulous design details ensuring that every MV Agusta is achingly gorgeous. Only RC30s, 916s, Manx Norton's and Brough Superior's come
  • Radial 4 valve engine designed by Ferrari
  • The 990R is available in traditional MV Agusta Red and Silver with the classic MV Logo
  • The whole MV ownership thing.  In the first 6 months I have met Cecil Sandford and Phil Read, Seen some great historic MV Racing bikes and spoken
    to their owners. Chatted at length to Phil Read, I now have a signed copy of his autobiography, I have attended a Ferrari Owners Club event as their
    guest.  Attended Italia night at the Ace Café. Can't do all that on a Triumph or any other bike.

My MV with Ventura Tail Pack and Puig Screen
The first time I have paid for a personal number plate (Number hidden)
Awesome Brembo Brakes
Simply gorgeous
Super smooth, super torquey 4 Valve radial engine designed by Ferrari
Great detailing everywhere - simple, purposeful
Surprisingly good instruments. Working out the menus takes time to master
MV Agusta know how to make you feel special, letter from the President,
leather ouches, USB stick with manual etc.  Quality throughout.

I created this site in 2004 with Yahoo Sitebuilder (Now sold on to Aabaco), I still use Sitebuilder but for the last 10 years there has been a bug in my site .  If I make a change to the
Toolbar Sitebuilder will randomly delete text from site pages.  I split my site into sub domains and I have more or less eradicated the bug which I now know is caused by the Advanced
Navigation Bar Editor.  If a text box contains gibberish it is not my fault.  I would not recommend Sitebuilder, unfortunately I am stuck with it.
