    Mercedes MV Agusta Turismo Veloce?
    MV Agusta is a story of perseverance. The company has been bankrupt several times, owned by Harley Davidson at one point in its life and almost completely funded by the*Castiglioni family for the last several RideAppart.com..More
    FWIW: The lead in paragraph is technically accurate; however, I suspect if you could get a complete look at the paper trail the image might be completely different. The Castiglioni family is clearly the reason MV is around. Generations have been committed to running a motorcycle business as part of the family portfolio. In the process bankruptcy has been used frequently as a normal way of doing business. It should is understood very differently in the EU than the US. All or parts of the company have been sold at various times. When selling they received premium dollars for the brands sold in addition to the assumption of debt in the process. Husqvarna Motorcycles went to BMW in such a deal only to be sold to KTM a few years latter at a substantial discount. In the deal with Harley-Davidson they received a premium on the front end and bought back at a huge discount. Don't waste time trying to figure out if they are heroes or villains, they are neither. They just have a different way to make a good living while making some stunning motorcycles.

    Damiler AG is the latest to attempt to join them. The German auto maker will reportedly make its purchase of thirty percent of MV Agusta official November 2 according motorionline.com and others.

    I like the looks of the NM4. It is a real Batman kind of bike. Trouble is I'm not Bruce Wayne nor do I don a cowl when the moon is full and bright; therefore, I think I would pass for urban riding. At the beach, perhaps. In town I deal with 4WD SUVs and Mini vans. The laid back feet forward riding position appears to take away all the visaul advantages an upright riding position has to offer a cyclist. As soft as the seat looks I have troubles imagining it would remain that on a trip to the north shore. Obviously YMMV

    I like it means I kinda like it but wouldn't buy it. It definitely has curb appeal, I just have no explanation what that means beyond my public rank has risen to general.

    As to messing up a CRF1000 Africa Twin...how does Honda or anyone else mess up a bike they have only leaked pictures of?

    FWIW The share taken by Mercedes AMG is smaller than anticipated by previous rumors. The placement of Daimler's holding in the Mercedes AMG is consistent with the spin that this is a cooperative sales and marketing development venture in the upper end of the production motorcycle market. The success of the move will dictate if the German auto companies share will grow and the cost of that.

    More to come on this.

    By making it heavy and underpowered like they did with the Transalp, Africa Twin and Varadero (which may be just another name for Africa Twin).

    My hope is that Honda used their motocross/cross-country racing bikes as a pattern... my hopes really went up when I heard it might be called a CRF1000.

    I have yet to see anything concrete. I suggest you pin you hopes on what they did with the Crossrunner. Honda understood the feedback the original bike was boring and change it. 1000cc may be wishful thinking. I am seeing more and more stories centering their speculation around a 750-800cc engine.
