So poor guys bike sat as an expensive life size bike model untill new part came. Then while trying to sell it, he had to replace the headlight plug as the terminations were causing problems. He has a new R1M now.

end of day the dealership/distributor could of done this a certain way and shown a good level of service and keep a custormer happy. But they didnt and now MVA name is further dirt.
That is unbelievable.

If i ever buy a new mv, believe you me i will show the store owner this story and tell him if i ever get treated as such im holding him personally responsible lol.

r1m, they're a good bike. Nearly bought one instead of my 1299.

I Ride: Shopping..
Everyone posts about their bad experiences with the bikes.. this went wrong, that went wrong, its costs $$$ because they want to share their pain.. Hardly anyone posts ' My bike is great, nothing has gone wrong with it..' because it doesn't make for good reading.

The older Ducatis were known for their electrical issues but that was before they switched to Japanese made electrical components.

I've had a 996, 998S, 1098S, 1199S Tricolore, 1299S and currently have a 1299S Anniversario and a 1200S multistrada.

Nothing has ever gone wrong with anyone of them and whilst you may get the odd recall, that's just part of owning a new model. It happens with Porsche as well.

Buy it, ride it, enjoy it.

Of course, thats the kiss of death now. I'll probably go outside to find that the wheel has fallen off the Multistrada and the engine has eaten itself.
Thanks from The Avidmoto, thorny and DukeSilver

First models/new releases mostly always have teething problems...
Its why i always reccommend to try wait for a gen 2 or gen 3 of that model unless its an exclusive 1 model run..

Hahah same, im worried if i say my 1299 has been faultless so far something in it will shit itself.

It's a Ferrari, not an Acura. If you want a daily driver, it may not be for you. My nearest dealer is 20mins away in Houston but the best dealer in the state is 2.5hrs away in Austin. I happily take it to Austin and they make sure all is perfect. If you're buying a new one today, be assured that most of the little issues that are part of a new model have been sorted.

This is a very dumb logic.

It's a car. It's made to be driven. Daily or not. In this case, it's a motorcycle. It's made to be ridden. Daily or not. Hard on the gas or not. There's no reason to make these types of excuses for any motor vehicle manufacturer. There are high mileage ducatis out there. Like others have said. You'll hear more people complain about issues than people praise the bike for whatever reason. AntiHero has even done both a trip around the country as well as having his bike shipped overseas to do a trip around the world.

Maybe something new coming out? Or maybe they're just too damn pricey.
