I personally think he will be happy with it.
You have a good attitude about owning an exotic. Hopefully your friend will too. For me Grizzos are as ferociously ugly as this bike is gorgeous, but to each his own.
A lot of guys get a wild hair for bikes that require a high level of commitment and when push comes to shove they aren't up to the challenge.
That is one well designed beast though. Flowing Italian styling layered over an iconic American type. Footboards even. If MG's test drive truck ever gets anywhere near me, I'm going to get me some of that.
