Let's not get too crazy, Chicken Little! Let's not forget the 750 I-4 MV you mention was matched or beaten in performance by a lowly Gixxer. Check out an F3 in person before you try to convince me MV has lost its luster.

We used to slaver over MVs long before you were a gleam in the eye. The fact that they were made of Unobtainium only made them more desirable. Mass production will add the hohum factor. They'll have to beat Ducati and Aprillia at the game it plays all too well... all while being managed by a car company.

And the Panamerica is a slap in the face of Dr. Porsche's ethics. Morbidly obese, comfort over performance, style over engineering. No wonder they can't make them fast enough for the US market.
