1000R or 312

Hi everyone. Quick question,I am in Perth, W Australia and am going to buy an F4. I can wait a while for a black/white 312 or get a 1000R now. My dilemma is that the 312 is newer with upgraded engine internals but wouldn't the 1000R be better suited to mainly street riding with its better bottom end? Also the 1000R is currently being sold with a genuine cover and rear carbon hugger to sweeten the deal. Anyone ridden both? And last question, what is supplied as standard when you purchase one of these beautiful machines? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There are some people on here who have ridden both. If I remember correctly most of the guys said unless your pushing it on the track you really couldnt tell the difference between the two.

Hi and welcome.

I never rode an F4R, but unless you get a VERY good discount (not a bike cover and a carbon hugger) on it vs the 312R (which is a huge update regarding my previous F4S) or you have to wait a LONG time for the 312R, i say get the 312R, no doubt.
When you buy one of these you're suppose to at least get the owner manuals (in print and cd in a nice special box), a rear stand and a battery charger.

I had the 1000R but only kept it for a few months (500miles) then I sold it and got the 312R. If money is no object then get the 312R. I like both bikes, the extra HP ALWAYS helps but I don't know if the increase in price justifies the that little difference.


Good Luck!

Someone posted some dyno charts here a while back that showed them to be virtually identical up to 10,000 rpm. If memory serves, there was slightly more power for the 1000R in a couple of spots, but it was negligible.

Ride is a little different, as for performance the 312 is in its braking in period.

hey dude you get rear paddock stand and documents that is all that comes with an mv. personally i would go with whatever is the best deal, the r version has more bottom end ie from 0 to 5000 revs and the 312 has more up top , really depends on what you want. i have an s version and it really starts going at about 400 revs. i love my s version just for this reason. but i never go on track purely for this reason i love my s that is why i have not upgraded yet. mayb e after the milan show i might change my mind!

Stamo,
The other point to consider is that you may have to spend some money on a 1000R to play around with the fuelling whereas the 312R seems to be more sorted. Rick Gill's have had that red/silver 1000R on the floor since about April (assuming it is the same one) they tend to not offer any discounts, so if it were me, I would buy the 312R in black/white...stunning. Try to talk them into the hugger/cover deal.

Another WA member, Ozboy, loves his 1000R and my Senna is basically a 1000R...so I can safely say that you are unlikely to regret it if you decide to take that path.

Hopefully see you on an MV soon.
Cheers
Broms.

Hey Stamo.
Have you checked out the black/white 312R in Rick Gills?

They have a large stock of MV's right now,so plenty to choose from.
