Is this a 312RR 1078...

...or is it a 312R with 312RR 1078 bodywork?

Here's a link to the dealer that has is listed. I believe they had the same bike a year ago for sale. It's listed as an '08, but I suppose it could be an early US '09 that was titled as 2008?

The vin listed on their site is 100730. Does anyone know MV vin numbers well enough to know if it's really a 1078?

It looks like a RR to me. Besides bodywork the color of the frameplates is the same as on mine.
As for the vin we would need the whole number to be able to say something...

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.

The VIN should have 17 letters / numbers.
I think they have shown the last 6 digits (12 through 17). These last six digits are the production sequence numbers.

In the full 17 digit VIN the 7th digit (which is a letter) should be a P which denotes a 1078.
On a side note the VIN letters do change from time to time at the discretion of the manufacturer. Getting a 1078 RR F4 owner to check the 7th digit will confirm the letter you're looking to confirm.

Just looking at the bike, I'm as sure as I can be that it is a 1078RR.

Well it's Australian isn't it, Mitch? And Aussies like to be different....

I think that a USA based bike will use letter codes for at least the first 8 places of the VIN.

All of the MV's in the garage do. I may be wrong but Kiwi's are seldom wrong, are they Cobber?

Yep, I've had a sniff around and there are differences in the letter / number formats depending on the country. It appears that Aussie bikes use the European system shown below from a previous thread.

ZCGF511BA6V004035 for F4 1000 Biposto Europe
ZCGAKFGM26V200320 for F4 1000 Biposto US

OK,fair comment.I also have these numbers on the Factory sticker on the headstock.
78R-022142EXT02.
41R-032394EXT01.
Maybe that will help.
The 1078 also had features like upgraded front suspension,mono block calipers,different steering damper,CC fairing screen,different lightweight wheels etc compared to the 312R.
Also Dave I must say you Kiwi's do play a good game of Rugby Union.
Happy New Year almost.

Happy New Year to you too, Brother.
Just 12 hours to go over here.
Just a quiet one planned as I'm old.

Take care,
Dave.

Dave, join Poppy and myself in the age old (since 1972) tradition of doing wheelstands at midnight. First wheelies in the World and this year is our last to be first...............
