F4 2013RR or keep the F4 2012RR

I'd love to hear other peoples opinion on my dilemma. I own a F4 2012RR which is in "as new" condition with only 1800 miles, however the engine is burning a ridicules amount of oil (1ml per mile), its looking as if MV are going to install a new engine for me, which is good as long as they don't mark the bike installing it. A part from the oil issue I think the bike is great.
The garage have given me the option to trade the bike in for a F4 2013RR which has been registered for 5 month and then returned due to many faults, but I'm told all the faults have been rectified now. I would also need to give a sizable payment down as well and I am sort of tempted but after reading all the negative reports about the 2013RR I'm having second thoughts. I would be interested in your opinion.

Keep the 2012RR. Less potential for things to go wrong ie electronic gizmos and you have a way better colour scheme. What colour is it? Besides your getting a new engine compared to getting a bike with a bad history

Well you could get the one problem you have fixed under warranty (I presume), or you can trade it in with a heap of cash on a bike that's had a history of problems. Is there even a choice to be made here??

Interestingly the colour of the 2013 is white, which I'm not that keen on, were as mine is red. I don't mind the gizmos as long as they work, but I'm not sure if MV have fix anything?

Quickshifter aint working still and i wouldnt want to rely on electronic suspension you have the best suspension setup on your 12 now. The white 2013 is terrible and the red12 is beautiful.

Which ever choice you make you are rolling the dice. That said, I dearly love my 2012 F4RR and I wouldn't be swapping her out for a 2013 model.

I also agree that the the 2013 paint scheme isn't as pretty as the 2012 - but I would say that wouldn't i :-)

It doesnt????
And mine?? Will it??

Oh... And I would take the 2013. I like that one much more!

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

I saw the white one last week that black sticker is terrible it could look better if it went to the end of the side fairing and the top of the fairing close to the nose cone.

I would rather the red. I rode a 12 RR its a wespon your a lucky man
