Advice on first F4R -14 purchase

Hello.

I just test rode an F4R 2014 and fell in love with it.

Currently driving a Buell 1125CR.

I mainly drive on twisty roads or highways.

Usualy drives 5000km per seasson.

I have found a deal from an local shop and i want your opinions in it.

F4R 2014
11000km (1100mil)
Price is 10500 euro (99900sek)

Is it a good price?

What should i look for if i buy it?

How much and when is the next service?

Thanks
Joakim

Sweden. So i Will just ride it for about 6 months every year. But i will ride it not just look at it 👍

MV is not a big brand here.

I like odd motorcycles thats why i ride i Buell 😁

I also like it to be reliable. The oddball buell has worked flawless for 10000km.

MV is not a big brand anywhere.... So if unique and different is your style you have come to the right place! I think that is a reasonable price....but I'm not sure how the market is in your part of the world.

The F4 is a very reliable bike....just do the needed services correctly and in a timely fashion. Rear hub service is important. Fuel lines and connectors are also. It's an easy bike to work on, and Donsy has the workshop manuals on his site....and lots of friendly folk from all over the place here to talk with.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Yes, it's a common theme.

~$12500USD for a 6500 mile '14 F4R is a very good price here for that, so it must be an even better price in Sweden, as I was just in Stockholm not too long ago and boy is everything expensive. The purchasing power parity between US and Sweden favors the latter, as the Big Mac Index should uncover. Go for it!


How much and when is the next service?

Check out Donsy's signature for links to the manuals.

Thanks

I was advised no remap necessary but I'll let you know when I get mine. I have one on order for my 2013 F4RR, which I just paid $13k with 2200 miles. Good luck with the new bike!

The price for the F4 R is fantastic, are you sure it's the R version?
Main difference from the base F4 ABS to the F4 R are the Ohlins rear shock and wheels (similar to the Panigale S). As usual just check who was the previous owner and if the throttle was changed under warranty. Mine and a few others were changed with an upgrade.
I'm with Arthur everything is so expensive in Sweden apart from bikes.
If you're looking for an aftermarket exhaust look at my sale here for the BODiS slip on that I'll have available next Monday.
Wellcome to the Forum.

Yes, we all can agree that is a great price.

Most of us here on the forum will also agree Bodis is an excellent exhaust. I have one on my 312R and it is amazing.
