MV has released yet another bike based on their 800cc triple. In addition to the Rivale 800, the Turismo Veloce 800, the Brutale 800 and 800 Dragster, and the F3 800, there is now the Stradale 800. The Stradale fits somewhere between the naked sport Brutale and the more sport-touring Turismo Veloce. My impression of the new Stradale from the photos and specs makes me think of it as a sport-tourer "lite". Here's some of the info from MV's website:
- Traction control, electronic quickshifter, ABS with rear-wheel lift-up mitigation, multiple engine maps: the Stradale 800 incorporates a comprehensive array of MV Agusta technology. A specially designed frame, side panniers with integrated light clusters, increased suspension travel, 16-litre fuel tank. Each component has been designed to provide unique riding sensations. Whether you’re into sports-style riding. Or touring. Or both.

Seems like not too long ago, we were reporting that the German brand Horex had been resurrected and would be producing motorcycles based on a VR6 engine. We have heard today, however, that Horex has now closed up shop. The actually did start selling bikes for short time before falling into financial woes. This is a shame but not entirely surprising. Most small operations that try to break into the industry don't make it as it is a rough road to proceed down. The loss of Horex is a shame though and personally, though I might never have had the money for one, I did like the overall concept.

Motorcyclists in general are a curious type. We love our bikes and we also are interested in what makes them "tick". As such, many of us like to handle the "care and feeding" of our petroleum powered steeds whenever we can. In fact some of us actually enjoy performing work on our bikes and find it cathartic. However, not all of us have access to space and/or the tools required to do our own maintenance. Enter Tank Slapper Garage.
Tank Slapper Garage, located at 1421 Lebanon Rd in Nashville, is THE solution for the DIY bike mechanic who is lacking space to perform work on their bike. Tank Slapper has three workstations with air over hydraulic lifts that can handle most any size motorcycle you can bring in.
