i dont know about the rest of you guys but im really getting tired of mv. it is one thing to stay with the same body style but im really getting tired of all the special editions(they may actually be special if there wasn't so damn many of them) and the new names for the same damn bike. this body style has been
1. f4s 2. f4s evo 3. f4s evo 2 4. f4 1000s 5. f4 1000r 6. f4 1000r312 and now 7. f41000rr312
and i have probably left some out. all they are accomplishing is to depriciate the brand new bikes that the dealers are still trying to get there cash out of. come on im sure tamburini can come up with something every 10 yrs or so. untill then im just going to keep my 750

im with you...i bought the 312R and saw that they're bringing this new one out. Makes me wonder how special my bike really is.

They really could have just refined the 312 a bit more. I test rode an R last weekend and I wasn't hurting for power. They do need to get on the ball and come out with something new. I get the feeling from reading all the posts on the MV board that they're not too happy with the way things are going whether they admit it in plain English or not. Reading between the lines, I see a lot of discontent.

Thing is, if the F4 had never existed and they released it tomorrow, we'd all be saying how fantastic looking it is. And therein lies the rub. It's still a great looking bike but we've all had a decade to realize that. Tamburini will have a tough time designing a new bike that surpasses the old without completely coming up with something new and out of the box. By doing that, he alienates the original F4 owners and potentially new owners as well. We're at a point in motorcycle design where something ahead of it's time isn't going to go over well. We're not accepting of what may be THE aesthetic trend for the next 30 years when we're still caught in the middle of the design cycle as it exists today, at least for sportbikes. Tough job. Glad it ain't mine and all I have to do is ride and enjoy the things.

i agree whatever comes out next will probably be a let down but im ready. it will be like ducati and the 999. the 999's popularity is still growing. all they would have to do is keep the same basic body update the tail section and headlight or something along those lines. i had my 1098 tricolore and my mv out today and looking at both at the same time i still think my 2000 model mv is better looking than my brand new ducati. but thats just me.

No, you're right, the MV is a much better looking bike than the Ducati. I think the RSVR is better looking than the Ducati honestly.

It's still working for Porsche with the 911. Minor updates have kept the same basic design looking good for 30 yrs.

Yeah, I see the point. The Brutale is not much better, R and S models, special editions coming out, limited edition Corse models that are decorative changes more than anything, now the 1078 Brutale. Still, Other brands are the same, with total changes underway at Aprilia, KTM have a bevvy of new models; and who can keep up with that German make, and all it's new models?
None of them are as pretty as the MV, though.

Unfortunately, I learned last week that Tamburini is very sick. I don't have many details, but I assume that his condition may explain the lack of new designs coming off his pen.

Not about, exactly. In Alaska your motorcycle insurance is in force only 6 months per year.

While eyeing all the photos and looking at where and how they made certain bit of the bike, a funny thing stood out.
Let's take a look at the main pic; I am making it smaller to fit on the forum better but you can look at the full pic from the top links:

Now zoom in to the cable and what do you see? Carbon Look??:WTF:

id have to say that the 1098 is a better looking bike than the rsv1000 its just sexier and i think aprilia has takin a step backwards on style with the rsv4
