I take the time to read quite a few threads on the forum everyday.
Now, I fully acknowledge that I'm not the fastest rider on the forum and probably not the slowest, but I think it's pretty interesting that there is criticism of the F4's abilities.
In particular I'm surprised that people criticize the handling & brakes of the MV F4.
They must be truly incredible riders to do this or have no clue how to set up a sportsbike chassis & suspension to their preference.
I recall being overtaken by multiple TT winner Bruce Anstey at my first track day, he ran it up the inside into a left hand hairpin. I was on a 1994 916 Ducati. He was on a Harley Davidson 1200 Sportster race bike.
If we had have been on each others bikes he still would have overtaken me, only a little quicker I suspect.
That's where my signature and my perspective on this subject comes from.
As I see it, it's not what you ride, it is how you ride it.
Buying this months highest rated sportsbike does not make you a more competent rider. It will just make feel that you are.
I know what you mean Dave, but I don't agree with you, just because there is always some one faster than you (or me) doesn't mean that you (or I) can't tell the difference between an OK and a great handling bike, you don't have to be able to 'outride' the bike to feel this difference

MV's all gone now, still have a soft spot for MV's, waiting for MV to tick all my boxes again.
