Mmmh... I wonder if that's a Triumph engine living in an MV frame.
The Benelli three cylinder engine was an old Triumph design Minarelli bought from the Britons and improved locally, perhaps this is something similar.
Anyway MV desperately needs a new bike: sales have been dwindling for the past two years and this year they've ground to an halt. They've stopped developing new bikes a few years ago and now all they do is "slightly hike displacement", "slightly alter frame", "fit more expensive bodywork", "slightly hike price tag". With the arrival of the BMW S1000RR they'll either have to burn the midnight oil to come up with new product or close shop.

Maybe they could merge with Buell (or Norton!)

Larry, I thought it was a condition of your parole to stay at least 500 ft. from barnyard animals (1000 FT. from sheep).........

Does that horse look embarrassed? Or is that just my imagination?

not embarrassed, more like his dignity is completely gone, or he wants to mount that V4 jerk for not shutting up!
