312 article in Roadracing World

Seems like Roadracing World likes the 312 bike pretty well. I just got it last night.

They put it on a dyno and it made more power than a new GSX-R1000.

Testing at Miller would have put the bike on the grid for the Superstock race there, bone stock except with Michelin DOT race tires. Mirrors and all.

It seemed like an overall positive review, which is a big U turn from the 1000cc comparison earlier in the year where the F41000R did the fastest lap time but came in last in the comparson (!) which is strange for a motorcycle racing magazine.

Eh its just more motorcycle garb... as MV doesnt pay much for adverts so they are not going to get much talk time.

I believe she is the Devil in a candy wrapper.

Too true Dova.

There are no handling differences between the R and 312R.

Ti valves and extra ponies and its a better bike in the eyes of these journos!

Dont get me wrong guys, the 312R is an upgrade from the R, I wouldn't have thought SOOOO much so.

MV always loses the comparisons because the price is factored into the equation.
