Default My F4.312 doesn't do 312 kph

Can any body tell me were I stand legally, I bought a new MV Agusta F4 312R, which the MV dealer said would travel at 312 kph. So I bought it, I now find that the fastest speed I can get out of it on a runway is only 292kph and that's one of the fastest runs, ie good weather conditions with a tail wind. Can I legally sue MV Agusta under the trades descriptions act, ie It doesn't do what it says on the box? I would be very interested to hear your views.

How heavy and large are you? How accurate was your timing gear? Did you red line it in 6th? Have you tinkered with sprocket sizes? How worn were your tyres?

All of these things can seriously effect top speed.

if we are going to screw this thread up we might as well make it good.

The top speed is set at the circular banked test circuit near Nardó. I know that there a magazine that wanted to certify the top speed and came till 311 at the same track. So I would suggest you test it first at the same circuit. But I don't see the issue here to be honest. Maybe your PC is not tuned well...
FYI: my 1000S did 294 on the highway and I still had a little left.

I cant believe how ridiculous the parent post is on this topic...sue?! For top speed?! I must say you have a lot of time on your hands or you live in a place where there are no speed limits and you really have to get from point a to point b as fast as possible. I agree that the 312R prob does not hit that speed for everyone. Only controlled conditions maybe. But for crying out loud...suing?!

I am assuming this is a joke, or as the English say "having a laugh".
If it is not, then sir, you are an idiot. Sell it and get something else, please.

I guess it matters aswell how you rode in? I rode my Senna up to 303 km/h completly stock. With the Cat. removed and the RG3's I went up to 308 km/h!!!

An other Senna owner said he doesn't reach the 300 km/h barrier. But he's much heavier and less areodynamic


The 312 should at least do better then the R version.

But sueing the factory Get a life
