750 or 1000?

I was wondering if you guys could tell me what the power is like in both the SPR and a F4R. I have had a 600 and a 1000. The 600 did not have enough power and my 1000 had to much for the road. I was looking into the SPR but was told that the power was pretty flat and peaky. Is this true? What is the power like with the F4R.Please help guide me in the right direction.

Well, I've never had a SPR but did have a '00 and '02 750 and have a F4S now. The difference between the 750 and 1000 is huge. The 1000S has a much broader torque curve than the 750 which never woke up until 6,000 rpm. I would say the F4S has the low end kick like a '02 R1.

My friend had an 03 R1 I think thats the same engine. I liked it way more than my 05 R1 because the 05's power did not hit until 5 or 6 grand. horrible coming out of slower corners.

If you want a Mamba Or a Corse bike, do you purchase a kit along with your bike or just buy the bike?

Great, you ridden bikes I can relate to. The torque curve of the F41000S is like the 2003 R1 but the top end is like the '05 R1. The "personality" of the F4 750 is like the '05 R1. Before the F41000S came out in 2005, I always thought the '04 R1's engine would be what a 1000cc MV would be like if MV made a liter bike. Fortunately, it's not.

That sounds like the best of both worlds!! I really want that low end.

For road use the 1000 is by far the better bike, if I did track days I would think the 750 may be the better bike for the majority of us, the problem with the 750 is a lack of midrange, the 1000 is so easy to ride if your not in full attack mode.

I have never heard of anyone who has traded from the 750 to the 1000 say they have made a mistake, by and large the people who say 'the 750 has got more than I can use' have never ridden the 1000

One thing to keep in mind is that the MV has a single butterfly which causes an on off throttle especially when not properly tuned. I'm used it and happy to put up with it but if you were unhappy with your 05 R1 you may just want to test ride the MV before you buy. The R is apparently a little better than the S and the 312 better again but I don't see them being as smooth as a bike with dual butterflies....
