Own a Futura...best bike I've owned
I have a Futura and I simply love it. It has a great sound (D&D aftermarket cans with revised codes, etc.) and the bags are super useful. This is my first "bagger" and I was very apprehensive about the idea. But, now that I have bags, I'm not sure I could go back. Also, the bags don't look awful like on lots of other bikes.
The bike has plenty of power, but you can always use more.
FYI: I bought my Futura used for ~$8k with risers, aftermarket exhaust, Penske rear shock, Pirellis, cruise control, electrical outlet, etc and I am very happy with it.
I've put ~6k miles in less than 2 years on it with only 1 small electrical issue which went away with time. Go figure.
But, the MV and new Aprilia Mille are very sweet indeed!
