I had a MV 800 triple for about 6 weeks, i fixed the diabolical rear shock, then the front felt crap. The engine was great if you like angry revy triples, i did a track day on it, and couldn't put in on the same piece of tarmac on each corner, it was so twitchy. My son did a 6 day tour on it with me on the GT, he loved it, but said passing tandem logging trucks and the quick shifter being hit and miss he had a few scary moments. But he loved the engine, as he came from owning a Triumph 675. My first test ride on the 790=torque=in low revs=love this engine. First roundabout, love the handling. I traded the MV on the 790. Did a track day a week later, and Oh boy, what a fantastic track day bike, i did 6-20 minute sessions (KTM only trackday) i could put the 790 anywhere on the tarmac i wanted consistently. the 790 is awesome fun. A mate is texting me at the mo for a 400km back road ride, just working out a fuel stop, 200kms of fast back roads and the 790 is needing a top up.
