I watched the video but didn't get much out of it. The MG is a good looking bike. I've never ridden one but I should.

The takeaway from the video was that the younger guy and the older guy, who both are used to the latest and greatest sportbikes, would choose the Guzzi before the RSV Factory if they were spending their own money. They had as much fun going 100mph as breaking the sound barrier on the Aprilia.
 You can't beat the sound or the experience of a Guzzi. My V11 LeMans has the race exhaust, and it is pure sex! I always say it sounds like an old Fuelie Corvette. It's like my RZ350: I am always on the throttle just to hear that sweet music!
 I drooled over an Aprilia RSV Factory ($30K Canadian at the time!) back in the day, and would still rather have that over any current sportbike...but I am happier on my LeMans. If I was ever forced to have one bike (down to 18 right the LeMans is it!

I took the one less travelled by,
