MV Augusta question.

The MV is a twin? I was wondering because I was watching a show that had one and the tach went up to 17K. Too lazy to research it. I figure someone knows off the top of their brain.

Doesn't sound like one (proly the dry clutch?). But that would make sense because of the four exhaust outlets. I want one now. Know the top speed?

Not sure about top speed...but I4 for sure. SR tested that, the Duc 999 and R1 LE last issue. Duc was the only twin.

Pretty good. The LE was the most comfortable...and I believe the MV was the most powerful.

Don't like Duc's. The new R1 is the illest. The 1098 is the sexiest bike I've ever seen though.

1098 is sick. Incredible power and torque too...but I love the look of the 999
