Client getting MV Agusta Senna

So, this week I had some work to do for a client. They had a server hard drive go down, and business was at a standstill with the president in Brazil, and everyone in a panic... anyhow.. they call me up, and I'm there on my laptop, working on the drive when the president's brother notices my GSXR on the wallpaper and says "Oh you like bikes?" in a heavy portugese accent... We get to talking, and he informs me that his brother ordered the new MV Agusta Senna limited edition...

its a 1000cc, 174hp, 184mph top speed hand built italian beast, and it looks sexy as all hell!! In any case, I asked what other sport bikes his brother had, and the answer sadly was "none." "He has harley davisson" he said again with his accent... I cringed... this guy is going from riding an HD to jumping onto a $40k+ literbike?! I told him he should take the bike with him to the MSF location and get some one on one with the instructors....



Thoughts?

I haven't seen him since he's been in brazil... he got home today, I'm going to stop by this week, and talk him down... or at least try to... I mean... going from a cruiser to a literbike, and one this gorgeous at that is just plain asking for it.... Have you seen the naked MV?? That thing is sweet too the Brutale... that would be better suited for him since he used to ride a dual purpose back in brazil....



PS Gas Man- If he wads it up... its practically entirely carbon fiber, and I'm pretty sure the only shop that could piece it back together would be the factory in italy.... so I doubt even dropping $10k is worth it...

They're only making 300 of these bikes, and i hope they do some research on the buyers before selling these monsters... simply gorgeous....

I'm not really saying he is going to. But seroiusly, going from a cruiser to a sportbike isn't all that bad. Heck I think it might even be easier. The sportbike, especially a MV or like a duc, will have such superior handling and suspension that it will be harder for him to get into trouble. The bike will hold and pull thru the corner. Besides, its definately better than a complete newbie doing so!

I will agree that it is better than a newbie hopping on a literbike... I just worry... its one out of 300 being made, and I much rather let it be a collectors items that only sees track days, then him riding this around the streets of Miami. Miami is a scary place for bikes and bikers... especially fast and quiet ones.

But I hear you, better than a total noob. I won't be buying a literbike anytime soon. Speaking of, what do you think a good down payment would be on a GSXR 600 (not financing through Suzuki) and maybe an '04 or '05 instead of the new '06 (though the '06 is pretty sweet)? I currently have a grand ready to go, but I'm thinking I might want to double that, and wait until I have the time to ride before going through the whole process. Also, where should I start for the loans because I know my bank wont do it...

Hahah... its 3:18am, just got back from a night out, just realized I jacked my own thread... but oh well its what I do apparently.... maybe PM me, so we can keep this discussing the semi-noober on the Senna?!

Which side note: Senna was a Formula 1 driver from Italy who passed away about 11 years ago. I was told this by the Brazilians who love F1. Aight, I'm out. Hit me up Chris

That senna is one sexy lookin bike

Since that guy has had riding experience & has that kindof cash ......he should look into a superbike school (level 1) ...that way he can learn performance riding techniques , get use to the bike & use its full pontential.

ne1,
I'm going to visit him this week since he just got back from Brazil and I'm going to tell him to at least take it to the MSF instructors for some private sessions. I don't know of any superbike schools down here in South Florida... if I'm wrong, let me know... I think the closest is Schwantz's up in Atlanta. In any case, I agree he should go somewhere to learn how to ride that rocket....

did you see that exhaust setup!!! 4 pipes no cans!?

The down payment on any bike is directly linked to how high you want your bike payment.

Yeah, I know that much. Do you know of any nationwide credit unions that wont slaughter me on the APR (I know my credit plays a huge role...)? Also, should I wait until after I finish school, which means I would be paying back my loans already?? Also, I usually save some $$ on buying books, and get a nice kick back from the excess loan amount... I might put that in maybe a 3 or 6 month CD, then when I'm ready for the purchase, I can get a little more $$ up for the down. I was figuring I would put up $1500 - $2500 for the down... and I'm looking for any fuel injected R6 or GSXR 600... so I think I should have a relatively low monthly payment. So long as the apr doesn't shoot up to like 25% I'm happy

Man those are all personal things... do the math on what you can afford. Understand that if you have a student loan payment on top of a car payment and you don't make much... it will be harder and harder to get a loan for a MC. MC's are a luxery... flat out... and the banks treat them as such.

Well, my car is paid off... so I only have student loans to worry about... and I definitely know that open lines of credit will hurt... so I suppose I'll just save up about 40% of the cost of the bike, and see what I can do.

Thanks Gas... but if you know of any nationwide credit unions let me know.

Thanks man

The fact that HD guy spent 40 large on that bike makes me want to punch a baby.

Ahh.... I see now. YEah, well I mean, he used to ride a dual purpose out in BRazil, but I mean.. you need a dual over there due to poor rode conditions and what not.. I just don't think it was the smartest thing to go from a HD straight to a 40k literbike..... oh well... I still can't wait to see this monster
