Yes, this looks like a beast, but I wouldn't buy one (couldn't, more exactly).

Bring back square headlights!!

I'm not sure how I feel about the fat tail and the giant hole underneath the tank. I think this may very well be the first MV I don't like.

That thing is every bit of an adventure bike as the F4 is.

Go soothingly on the greasy mud, for therein lies the skid demon.

I don't have a problem with the beak action on Ducati bikes, but I certainly agree that the other mfg don't have to follow suit. If you're a brand as known for looks as MV is, I'm surprised they came out with something this disorganized looking. There's a lot of great individual styling cues on this bike, but put them all together and like the others have said, it just looks messy.

if the weirdness that is the front headlamp assembly was somehow tidied up, I think it "flows" pretty well in profile.

Ducati didn't start the beak. In any case, the "modern" beak is a KTM thing...

And there is history showing beaks way before them...

Don't like the beak or the exhaust shield. Also looks a bit plasticy.
