Default MV Agusta F4 vs BMW S1000RR, Ducati 1098 Bayliss, Aprilia RSV4 Factory (by Visordown)

Anyone could jump on the MV and have fun, well, except George perhaps. The F4ís largely sports focused in terms of its riding position, stiff suspension and rabid engine but itís forgiving, user-friendly and massively controllable in almost every situation you can throw at it.In terms of handling balance it just strikes a really delicate compromise between flickability and stability which is the number one aim of any chassis engineer worth his salt. MV Agusta has made a bike to suit many people, most of the time.

I own an F4 1000 Senna, a S1000RR as well as a Ducati 999s. Without doubt the S1000RR is the best of the bunch. It is smooth, stable and wickedly fast. I love my Senna and the Ducati but the BMW is so far in front as a complete package that the gap between the 3 bikes is stark - there is no contest.

I will never sell any of my bikes, in particular the Senna. But when I really want to tear up my favorite piece of road I will take the S1000RR. When I want to hear that glorious wail from the Bodis pipes I'll take the Senna. The Ducati - well its just a two wheel version of a big block chev giving you a kick in the butt as it lights up the tires - brutal out of the tight stuff.

Life is good

I've own both as well. The MV is the most beautiful bike I've owned. The S1000rr is a bike that make me a better rider. I love the MV but the BMW feels better.
