Where can I find MV clothing to purchase?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread

Looking to purchase MV clothing. My dealer is having problems getting them. Is there a source online to purchase clothing? Another dealer or online retailer. I am located in the USA.

What are you looking for spefically? Leather jackets come up on ebay once in awhile. I assume you've tried the Ferracci,Casoli folks but if not you could give them a shout. I'm lloking for the MV leather pants that go with the jacket but it is not an item that is sold seperately...grrr but I may try the Hyper pants from Lookwell who make the MV leathers

Contact Martin at motowheels.com, he can get you anything out of the MV SP catalog, he's in Cali.

You can try 3X as suggested, but be prepared to spend a lot more money than you would intend to. It comes down to exchange rates with them, and they don't seem to use one.

If you go to www.mvagusta-sp.com and see the euro pricing, then go to www.mvagustauk.com (the UK MV site run by 3X)and compare you will see that they charge in stirling what MVSP charge in euros, and with a 1.4-1.5 exchange rate, that makes them well over the odds, especially against the dollar, which is around the 1.8 mark at the mo. I just got hit buying the cover for the Brutale from there. Quite frankly its disgusting what they charge. For example a 150 euro part is 150 pounds, then convert to dollars using approx 1.8 is 270 dollars. This is what the Brutale cover would work out to be, it would


Personally I would try one of the Dutch dealers as they seem to be more helpful

sorry, meant to say it would be good to ask Ferracci how much they charge for the cover, that would give a good comparison (though you would need to take off approx 1/6 as they shouldn't charge you our UK sales tax which is included in the cost at 17.5%). And re other dealers, any european dealer would have a good euro rate, as they don't have to worry so much about exchange rates. Also note that if you did buy from outside the States you would have import duties.

Try Ferracci first mate.
