Default Easy choice.

I am in love with the idea of owning a MV Agusta but logic takes over and says buy the BMW.

Love it... but the RSV4 keeps kicking everything else in the ass when it's time to go to the track. And, you know, V4.

I'd pick this bike over the HP4 or the Panigale, though.

Your wife rode on the back of it? What a catch she is, where did you find her? I want one too.

Nice photos! It sure looks better than the BMW. Out of my price range. For the average sport biker rider is it really that much better than a GSXR 1000? I have had my sights on the GSXR 750 for awhile which is at the top of my price range thinking it's the best package for an average (in my case below average in terms of ability) sport bike rider who does a track day once or twice (if I don't tell the wife) a year...

Only 172 horsepower? ? pfft my trusty 96 incher makes at least that, probably more since I knocked an iron pipe through the baffle, and you can't even put highway pegs on this one.. hmmf

Naw, it's another Italian beauty that I can't afford, probably couldn't even fit on and would scare the sheet out of myself riding, sure looks nice though. From a practicle standpoint I'd take the BMW as well simply because their support, though limited is going to be vastly more superior to MV's outside of the metro area. I know it's all about the passion, but practicality rears it's head whether you like it or not.

No, performance-wise, it's not hugely better than a Gixxer Thou. But then a Suzuki will never be anything quite like an MV.

Dude, it's nigh-impossible to overcome a bike with a KPPI of "100".

MVA should give up now, Suzi just shot it all-over their face....
