Differences between first gen and second gen F4 1000

Hi I am new here.Hello to all of you.
I am considfering buying an 07 F4 1000R. In doing my research I see that there is a second generation F4.
What are the differences between the two?
Thank you in advance to all of you MV experts out there.

Welcome to the forum. Some might argue but there is almost nothing similar/common between the pre 2010 bikes and the post 2010 or Y10+ F4's. At least on a technical scale.
Try reading through this to familiarise yourself - http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/bikes/mv%20agusta.htm

You could also argue the are 2 generations of the pre 2010 F4s......the 16M ECU model and the 5SM ECU model. Mechanically mostly the same but EFI systems miles apart.

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

First gen F4's are way cooler......and they look better too. This coming from a Brutale guy.

You cant go wrong with either one I bought my first mv 6 months ago and it was a 2007 1000r I love it to death the next one will definitely be a newer f4 so my best advice is if you can get both to have the total experience

I read several comments about runnig hot and overheating. Is this something the second gen addressed?

Agreed. First gens are definitely prettier. This is not coming from a Brutale guy.

A Muzzy aftermarket fan will fix that problem on the pre-2010 F4s.

Mike;

no, that keeps the fan blades from melting

to keep 1st gen F4s from over heating

>the fans need to come on sooner

>and the ignition map needs fixing

for 1.6M ECU bikes there is free software to do this available from merc07 Adam

http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=37545

for 5SM ECU bikes you need a tuner that can reflash your ECU

I replaced my 5SM with a MicroTec problem solved

Thank you for all the feedback. Very helpful! I am now leaning towards the 2012 F4R tomorrow. Although the earlier version is much better looking.
