    Nice. Was that a straight across trade?

    It was a straight across trade. Its completely different from riding a big twin to a big 4

    Suh-weet! Care to describe the feeling?
    Racing, as we all know, tends to blot out the sun in the way that a fondness for gelato tends to be overshadowed by morphine.

    Its completly different, a part of me misses a twin cause the torque was there, these I4 are like 2 strokes need to be in the right gear and hold on youll have a rocket ship. Still getting used to it. Had a passenger so couldnt really test it like I wanted.

    ?

    you have a 910S..... think of a 910R as a Tuono with 30 more HP

    ......

    the edgiest of the Brutales

    the F4 1000S, think an RSVR with 50 HP more

    an F4 CC, has almost DOUBLE the HP of an RSVR


    no bottom end?

    I have to agree with Noel, the f4 is an absolute monster to ride. get it above 3k rpm and hold on nothing gives that speed rush quite like an mv. that being said I know I'm faster on my ape, mainly because the f4 scares the crap out of me.

    After Micah did his magic on my Tamburini, it makes it seem that it pulls harder than the D16RR and the 1098R.

    I"m looking at this one this weekend if the wife doesn't kill me. This model and color MV sitting on the street parked about 5 years ago was the sight that made me decide to buy a bike after a few decades of not being on one. I was too dangerous to myself and waited many moons. Tried to buy one on fleabay but the seller backed out. Ended up buying the Ape. Sold her and then saw this lady. Lord help me, I'm still in love with her...let's see what happens. Downside is it's an 8 hour round trip and I'd have to trailer it.
