That was a sarcastic "no". Honestly, I would classify the MV Agusta as an exotic bike, particularly in Serie Oro trim.

I guess we could get into a debate as to what classifies a bike as exotic, but there will always be that subjective factor thing. Then there's that logistics thing. An MV will be more exotic here in the States as opposed to in its own homeland.

What makes the MV exotic in my mind is its limited production and importation, and very distinctive looks (especially the exhaust system).

I always considered the Bimotas exotic.

I generally use the same criteria that Pete mentioned and I do consider the MV exotic. I also think the R7 and the RC 45 meet that criteria.

I worked at one of those places... not as a dancer though. I was the guy that had to tell perverts like Pete to put his "thingy" back in his pants.

Wow, how did we get this far off subject this quick? It has to be a record.

Cool

If John was a dancer at one of those places then the place would be broke and would have closed down.

I am sure that the only reason you worked there was for the free coffee that they gave you.
