I'm considering a new F4

Hi, first post so first I'd like to say cheers to all you MV peeps.

Ok, down to biz. I currently am on a 08 CBR1000. It's a great bike but I'm thinking its time for something different. The new F4's look stunning. My biggest concern is all that bad hype I have read about fueling and software settings. Recently I read that there is a new update but I have not seen any end user reviews or comments. So what's the story? Are these bikes just pretty to look at or will they deliver the amazing riding experience I'm looking for? Also has anyone been on the RR vs the R vs the base model?

I just bought a 2014 and fueling is no problem. I would keep with year 13/14 if you want to avoid any issues

To be fair, I think most of the issues I've ever read about post 2010 have been with the 13+ bikes. (I've certainly had none on my '10.) The introduction of the quick shifter, ride by wire, etc seem to have be the cause of most fuelling complaints, not present on the 10-12 bikes, but most folks seem to appear to consider those sorted now.

I read the opposite. I`m not wanting to be critical, but I have read no comments about fueling in the 2013/14 bikes but plenty from the media and owners about issues in 10/12. You are right they seemed to have fixed the 10/12 bikes. But you wonder why MV changed to a different ECU manufacturer if they thought there were no issues.

The issues arose with the 13/14 bikes with the new electronics. The 12 bikes have no fly by wire or electronic suspension or qshifter issues. But the issues have been addressed
And they are running better than the initial release.

The ride reviews are terrible. I don't hold journalists in high regard so I want to hear from the actual owners. A tests ride is a two hour drive so just trying to get educated before I get there.

I'm considering a new F4

Well having owned 2 1000rr's the last of which was a track setup 2012 HRC as seen in my gallery photos...I can say this.

I've rode several MV's. Have the f3 675 and now own an f3 800 as well. I rode a 2013 F4RR and loved the bike. Settings galore and the adjustability of everything was amazing. To me the bike (don't hate me here guys) has more power than I need) and it can't be utilized to its full potential in a track setting anywhere around where I live.

I ended up buying the 2014 F3 800 after riding the F4RR. The flick ability of that bike is unparalleled. The torque curve is fantastic and it is a blessing to work on. Everything is accessible.

Cheers, Jon-Michael

For general sportbike use, the 14 F4 will dazzle you with some serious innovation and exotic feel over your current bike, IMO. But it will have its differences that you will have to get used to. Because the bike is leading edge you may have to open to some new learning in order to get the best out of the F4's features as there are a plethora of adjustments. Reliability wise I don't see the F4 as being any more so than any other good bike, but you may not be able to take it down any street for service like a Honda. Hope this helps.
