Thumbs up SENNA or 312?

For most the answer is simple but in my case I'm still wondering.
The senna is second hand bike only used a couple of times and the owner is selling it because he cant stand the pain due to the riding position (he needs to loose some weight).
The 312 is the pearl and white that I was planning to buy next year, I love the looks and the sound...but with this offer I might have to antecipate.
I guess this is a personal/emotional choice and being a twin fan I love my two ducs I wonder if the extra $ for the senna is it Worth.
Let me kow your experience with this models in particular considering problems associated!

I guess the question is whats the price difference between the two.

Remember on teh Senna, its a limited edition only 300 plus you get carbon stuff everywhere. Verses on the 312 you would have to buy it all.

Which paint scheme do you like better?

I believe she is the Devil in a candy wrapper.

Aramis,
Earlier this year I was about to order a 312 when my Senna came available, having been just run in at 3,000kms. I had always loved the Senna and the fact that I didn't need to run in a new bike was also appealing to me.

For me, the price was the same...so it was an easier decision.

Good luck, you are going to love either one.

SENNA 070/300

Im trying to negociate a 6.000,00 usd discount from the original price, in Europe the model is over 46.000,00 usd.
The 312 can cost me 30.500,00 usd so were talking a 10.000,00 difference...

Besides that I never liked the black color scheme but the senna is extremly beautiful live.

Look at it this way if both were side by side, which one would you be more drawn to?

It's a shame. You could get a Very nice used Senna for $24K USD if you were in the US. I don't suppose you'd be interested in shipping a bike would you?

If I had to pay $10,000 extra for a preloved Senna...I would choose the new 312R.

The 312 will give you the advantage of advanced engine technology and lighter wheels. You can buy a lot of CF for $10,000.

312R coz its cheaper and its brand new. THis coming from a Senna owner. The senna does have the better suspension though.

Well it wasnt this the time to finally get the MV because I ended up buying a Benelli Tornado from another person "low mile/very nice price" and this is going to be my track bike.
As for MV Ill wait for the end of production of the R312 and use my monster as a trade, that will complete my dream bikes: Ducati 999, MV F4 312 and Benelli Tornado, meanwhile I hope you dont mind that I participate on this forum.
If you care to watch how this bike screams..
