    I reallY like the Indian FTR concept and hope they bring a standard to market based on that. Otherwise they risk pigeonholing themselves into a corner the same way HD has.

    I always thought they could have made a clean break from the cruiser side of things with their Victory line, but they shuttered instead. It was losing money to be fair.

    This may be the most fitting MV review ever. (skip to 9:30)

    I know of a guy who bought a Brutale 800, owned it for a week before it blew its head gasket. Took three months for the part to come from Italy. He couldn’t just order it for himself from somewhere good like America since it was under warranty.

    Buy a Ducati, you won't have those problems. Longest I ever waited for a part was 2 weeks. Because they had to make a new one.it was the clutch push rod. Everything else literally had no real wait time.

    I remember MV Agusta proudly stating that sales increased 30% in 2015.

    To 9000 units worldwide.

    They filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy 4 months later.

    Maybe they can be stable as a Russian oligarch vanity project.

    Ross, what are your thoughts on BMW's new G 310 R?

    Bear in mind that parts service to Australia is pitiful. Itís easy to buy from a US retailer and fit it yourself, but dealerships donít have that freedom. If weíre getting things replaced through official channels, thatís what we have to deal with.

    That's shitty. Ducati NA is fucking amazing what they do for their clients.

    Australia gets boned again.

    I'd probably take it over an R3, which is an extra $500 with ABS, or the rest of the Japanese competition

    However, provided the newly taller seat isn't too high for me, I'd probably pay the extra $500 for a KTM Duke 390. The extra power would probably be appreciated on my mostly highway commute.
