F4RR 2013 Vs 2015

I am still looking at purchasing an RR sometime in December. Currently there is a 2015 in red/white with around 13k on the clock, price is ok. Now a 2013 has come up quite a bit cheaper and with only 1k on the clock, black and white.

How is the fueling/throttle response compare between these 2? I hear the 2013 being the first year of ride by wire was a bit iffy? by that I mean you feel disconnected from the bike. Is it something that can be fixed by ECU studio or other ECU mods?

Any other major differences making it worth going for the 2015?

I also dont find the fact it only has covered 1k to be a great factor as this means it has sat for the majority of the last 4 years.

Thanks in advance.

I donr think there were any real revisions between 13 and 15.

If the ecu updates have been done the 13 should be the same as 15.

EcuStudio will work well on both.

Quickshifter might be something to check, not sure what was standard in your region.

If it has 3 wires then it should be able to be upgraded to QS and Blipper. Will probably need a new sensor, there's a thread or two on this.

I had the exact same concern as I was considering a 2013 F4RR (2k miles) vs a 2015 F4RR (iirc 8k miles) a few months ago. I wasn't able to ride either one as they were both on the West Coast, almost 4500 km from me. The best I could do was Facetime videoconferencing. Throttle response is very important for me as I ride in the city and pulling into my shop every morning for work, I need to stop 90 degrees headfirst at the curb, turn the bike off, unlock and open the front door, and come up about 15 cm. I also use my motor as my horn here in NYC. It is a very loud environment and I need to be able to rev at an instant. It is quicker than reaching for the horn button and every millisecond counts for me, safetywise. So far, the 2013 has been acceptable, but definitely not as responsive as any of my previous gen F4's.

I read about a stiffer throttle spring on the 2015 so if I kept that upgrade option open for the 13. There are a few threads about it if you search. I couldn't find any other justifiable differences (other than age), to compensate for the cost difference, which was over $5000. Good luck and let us know which one you get. Either choice will be the correct one lol.
