The MV lineup has some of the best looking bikes, IMHO. As far as actually purchasing one, I'm taking the "You First" approach.

'Looks' are highly subjective and everyone has different ideas of what looks good. IMO looks comes 4th after performance, ergos and reliability. Except for the exhaust and headlight the Triumph and MV 675 are very much the same machine, but it is the test of time that counts. - Wayne

The B800 pretty much makes the B675 obsolete. They should've waited a few years before releasing it, allowing the B675 time to sell. Then some owners would've upgraded.

I'd buy a Street Triple R with an 800cc stroked version of the new Daytona engine over every other bike mentioned in this thread. Pity it doesn't exist.

Currently the Triumph 800cc version of it's triple would need a bit of adjustments, to compete with MV's version on their 800cc triple. I would jump on a 800cc Triumph Street Triple R, if they ever built one. I think a partial faring/sport touring version would be great to compete with BMW's new F800GT would also make some marketing sense, considering how Triumph seems to be gunning for them with other models.

IMO the Street Triple is a 600cc class bike; the goal being lighter weight and fine handling. As soon as you go to larger displacement, higher hp and torque then the engine, frame, suspension components etc must be strengthened to accommodate, with resulting increased weight to maintain engineering factor of safety. A stroked motor reduces the rev ceiling and increases vibration also. I know mine has no shortage of power on back roads or highway (too much most of the time). Hp freaks should check out the Speed Triple or a Daytona. - Wayne

Ducati figured out how to make a lightweight bike, as well as MV. The Speed doesn't need to weigh 470 pounds, other more powerful bikes weigh much less. 70 HP bikes weigh 700 pounds, 200HP bikes weigh 430... There is no correlation between HP and weight. It is only a matter of engineering savvy.

High hp and very light weight will cost you dearly (check out the Ducati Panigale or BMW HP). Generally speaking to keep a reasonable price (for sales volume) and to maintain a factor of engineering safety and reliability, the weight goes up with larger displacement and higher hp. Speed Triples may weigh a little more but they are stone reliable and don't break, and a few aftermarket goodies can drop 20 or 30 lbs. IMO pushing the limits in the interest of light weight can show up in stress failures down the road unless expensive exotic materials are used. - Wayne

At last, a wet weight published for both the B675 and B800 ... 416.67 lbs.

.

"Conclusion
Where the Street Triple is a relaxed, naked bike that is also tremendous fun to go ballistic on, the Brutale is far more aggressive. It’s sportier than the Street Triple and considerably faster, making it not a hell of a lot slower than the Speed Triple and, I reckon probably faster on a track than the 1050 due to its light weight.

The MV is not a bike for less experienced riders, as the power is pretty ferocious when unleashed and this, combined with the light weight, can make it a bit of a handful on bumpy roads. Although nowhere near as user-friendly or charming as the Triumph, the Brutale 800 is certainly the best Brutale I’ve ridden and a brilliant bike in its own right."
