That is .03 lbs lighter than the "old" stock Street Triple, 13.67 lbs heavier than the '13 Street Triple, only 49.33 lbs lighter than a stock late model Speed Triple, and a whole lot heavier than my little old 2010 ST3R

Like I said in a previous post if you want very light weight and high hp it will cost you; that 800 MV is $14,500 base price so comparing it to a $9000 Street Triple with standard suspension and 175 fewer cc is rather unfair. Why bother with the naked 800 MV if you want high power, light weight and fine handling? -get the Daytona R (which gets nothing but rave reviews) for around the same price, and is set up for high speed handling. There is always a faster better handling bike, but how much are you willing to pay? - Wayne

If I could, I would pony up the cash for this MV. I hope the Rivale 800, produces the same performance.

The thing that scares me; is if too many new riders read the part that this is a bike for experienced riders, they will just have to have one. There is a good dealership near me that sells MV's and so access to the bikes and service is right there.
I have met 3 new, never been on a sport bike, new to MC's, riders this year that have scared the crap out of me.
One has a Ducati, Penigale, another has a Kawasaki, X14, and the last guy bought a Yamaha, R1.

I wouldnt compare the B800 to the 675, rather the Speed Triple based on performance and ergos. It isnt priced any higher than the S3R, its just leaner, for the same price. I personally wouldnt scoff at 55 pounds of weight loss. My 2011 S3 weighs 471 according to everything I have read. Kudos to MV, should be an exciting toy.

January's issue of Motorcyclist magazine (I like to quote these professionals to back me up) had a Speed Triple R vs MV Augusta Brutale 1090R (4 cylinder) comparison. Yes, the MV 1090 had a bit stronger engine at high revs but they ended by saying 'Triumph's Speed Triple R isn't just a kick-ass exhibitionist machine, it's one of the best all-around street-bikes you can buy.' As for the MV 800 it is a fine machine (the Italians know how to build motorcycles) but one should expect a harder sport-oriented ride along with the higher price. - Wayne

In this economy, one should be careful of MV's ability to refine, produce & service.

As mentioned in an article in Hell for Leather, "...the lingering delays with full production of the F3 and its naked Brutale twin feed unpleasant rumours about the financial viability of the enterprise. Journalists I spoke with reported finish quality irregularities, a tell tale sign of rushed or incomplete R&D. For any company cash flow is the most important thing, and for a motorcycle company that means getting out there and selling hardware. Recent history indicates that Italian boutique brands are not terribly good at delivering complete products before they are ready, which doesn’t bode well for MV."
