We have investigated the temperature dependence of magnetic dynamics in a spinel-type vanadium oxide MnV$$_2$$O$$_4$$ by inelastic neutron scattering. The scattering intensity of excitation around 20 meV disappears in the collinear intermediate-temperature cubic-ferrimagnetic phase, which reveals that this excitation should be peculiar to the orbital ordered phase. We have found a weakly dispersive mode emergent from a non-integer wavevector $$(1.4,1.4,0)$$ at 56 K, which lies in the cubic-ferrimagnetic phase between non-coplanar ferrimagnetic and paramagnetic phases. This indicates that the probable presence of an incommensurate instability in the simple collinear structure.
