This Week!

Hi all,
I will be picking up an '07 F4-1000R this week!
I rode the 312 and 1000. Loved them both!
I'm going with the 1000 because it's $19,000 (21,000 OTD) and the 3.7%.
I already ordered the RG3, mid pipe and race ECU. I'll have those installed after break in.
I'm coming from a Duc 1098 with full Termi's. I loved that bike, but I think I'll like the MV even more. The MV seems crazy fast!
I totalled the Duc on ACH a couple of months ago. My fault, cars slammed on their brakes, I was too close, too much front brake and down we went.
I'm fine except my right knee is still a little sore.
My dilemma is Red/Silver or Black?
I feel an Italian bike or car should be red. The black is gorgeous too.
What do you guys think?

Ara

Very hard decisions...The bike is beautiful in every color scheme. I like the White/Black personally, but have strong leanings toward traditional MV Red/Silver as well. The all Black is pretty nice, too .....very hard decision, but a good problem to have. Congartulations on whichever you choose.

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

Welcome Ara and congrats on getting the MV

I choosed the Black one in the end (could had picked any of the 3 colors), but they are all beautifuland you can't go wrong with any of the F4's (not the same with the new RR's though, IMO)

Thanks guys.

When I go back Wednesday, I'll re-look at the 3 colors.
With Ducati it's easy. Red. The MV's are so gorgeous that any of the colors are as awesome as the bike their on.
PS- The wife likes the Black.

Congrats Ara! I ended-up chossing the White/Black one, I would have gone with the Black next, and then the Red/Silver, but that is just me, I could have been equally happy with any! They are all beauties!

I vote for Matte black ...oops, they don't come in matte black. In that case I'd go for white and since they have it in stock you'll get it on 1/2! Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice
