Turns out the MV Agusta Rivale doesn't look as good in the flesh as it did in that concept sketch. Didn't help that the first press shots were so dark. Is it better in person? We're not sure. There's still a curious imbalance front-to-rear and, from rear-on, the tail is peculiarly wide. Then there's the front, which looks like an amalgamation of current Husqvarna design cues. The end result is far from cohesive. It's not ugly, but it's far from pretty. What do you think?
