Same set up as you, waiting on arrival of a new 2014 RSV4 APRC ABS ( non factory). Which do you like better? Going to track them both.

That must be one hell of an expensive track bike considering how impossible parts are to come by for those things.

Love the F4 though no doubt!

Parts aren't hard to get at all for an MV. Moto Forza in San Diego is a stocking dealer with a huge inventory of parts, and there are several vendors on MVAgusta.net as well.

No kidding? I looked at an F4 for a while but everyone and their Mom kept warning me that part availability was virtually nonexistent, as was the dealer network.

Actually it is very easy to get any stock part for the bike from the site below. The dealer could not even tell me how long it would take to get parts. When my forks were leaking they could not give me a timeframe to get parts. Found the site below and everything I have ordered (rear master cylinder/cable, tank bolt, fork seals, lower radiator guard, stock decals etc.) all arrive within 2 weeks. They have a schematic of all their bikes and I can order any part on it. Started doing more maintenance/work on it myself and this site has been great. Trying to avoid the dealer, ridiculous hourly price and they actually installed my Nitron shock incorrectly and initially told me the whole swing arm would have to come off for the install, which was incorrect. New shock had defective rebound knob, so I installed the replacement myself.

Anyone that owns an MV needs to be aware of this site.

Very, very cool! So this is like the AF1 Racing of MV then. I always tell people (and I'm sure anyone with an Aprilia would agree), that without AF1 Racing getting parts for an Aprilia (with ease at least) would be a nightmare. Sure, other Aprilia dealers can order the parts, but its so much easier when the diagrams are online and you can browse the parts / prices for yourself.

Perhaps now that I know this I'll start looking into an F4 again. Though I will say personally that I don't like the new F4 design. The last time I liked them was when they were still using the round exhausts instead of the newer square ones.

Agree about the older model. The site JAndrewG mentioned, mvagusta.net, has all the maintenance manuals available online.

The BMW is quicker, especially with his quick shifter on the straights. He is a friend of mine that use to race overseas
