Just put down money on the My13 F4RR

Lord knows when it will show up, we still don't have the B3 675 in Texas. (and may not, my dealer suggests that the B3 800 is better for the US market).

Anyway, a huge step up from my MY10 F4. which I guess will have to become a track bike or something considering how crazy these things depreciate.

ASIDE: Jon, Mitch, et. al. I have the dates for my return to Oz, last 2 weeks in Feb, with the weekend of 22-24 in BNE dedicated for riding. (if you can abide my grandmotherly pace LOL)

Yeah, maybe. You boy's scared me off with all of this undercover cop bike talk. December/Jan is not the time to hitting heavily policed roads I figured. Price of a ticket, will pay for a whole track day.

But end of Feb, well maybe

Congrates Imculle, what color sceme did you go with? The 2010 F4 got good reviews from various publications so if you would be kind enough to give us your views on the 2010 F4100R vs the 2013 F4 1000RR it would be greatly appriciated. I for one trust the views of actual owners of a motorcycle over the moto journalists views as long as the owner of the bike isnt a brand fan to the point where it clouds his/her judgement. IMHO to get the best opinion of a certain bike, find a person who has a stable of different brands in his/her garage. You will find that they rarely look through rose colored glasses when
evaluating a bike o product.

I envy you but that said if I'm getting another sports bike with the latest gizmos for the last hurrah, it will have to be either the Panigale S or HP4 - some of us will scream treason. But it will be second to my F4 1078.. Will not be selling that ever..

I am going to get the red/white -- The big upgrade this year is the electronics package. ride by wire, suspension by wire, the ability to get in there and tune the thing at the ECM level. They haven't changed the chassis much if at all, and from what I understand they have no intention to -- they view the F4 as being in the same vein as the 911 -- Iconic design that needs tweaks not major changes. That may change if they move from WSS to WSBK.

Looking back now, I might downgrade to the F4R because the RR's only big difference is the Ohlins electronic suspension set up (it still has the ride by wire goodies) -- and the F4R is 5 grand less. I don't know if Ohlins on the front and electronic adjustments is worth the 5grand to me -- when they get to a point where it automatically adjusts suspension based on riding at the moment -- THAT will be worth it.
