Goodbye 910r

I've been lurking here for a wee while, staying reasonable quiet, but I feel the time is right to ask a few questions. I've just traded in my 910r for a 312. To be honest I loved the brutale but miss a fairing so I've bought the 312, however living in the north of Scotland and mid winter, I'm not in a position to get the new bike out yet. So I throw it open to you guys, how will I find the 312 after the brutale, and probably more relative, how will it compare to my previous bike, a 2005 zx10r?

That's a good question. I'm longing for answers. I could have the same problem in a near future.

Hi MATE,
I did a similar thing. I had a F4 750 and decided when the Brutale first came out that this is what I wanted. At the time I had a number of track bikes, so my road riding was more relaxed and I wanted to do some distances, so the Brutale was great.
Eventualy I longed again for the full on sport bike experience and traded the Brutale in on an F4 1000.

OK so what to expect. A period or re adjustment, and for me a realisation that I love full on no comprimise sport bikes. So I now have peace of mind.

I guess I just see the F4 now in a different light.

You will be fine.

I flip at august 2007 from a Brutale 910 S to the 312R, and after 4.000 km found the following differences:
- suspension softer than Brutale
- I donīt know why, but it feel the bike quiter in curves -its like a train, nothing moves at all
- sitting position could be a little less extreme
- but with the sitting position on the 312, its easier to hold the line in curves
- throttle control better
- more power and you feel it
- less engine vibration
- same consumption at higher mean speed
- better brakes
- transmission at same high quality level
- wind bother less - you notice it only over 225 km/h (140 MPH)
- its also easier to keep the bike clean

All in all, Iīm very happy with the 312.

Joaquin

Congrats with your new bike!

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.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

Talking welcome friend !!

hi there from lincoln ! glad to see youve made a great choice. ive only managed to put 800 miles on mine since getting it but i always want to ride it, it takes some getting used to, but be patient ! it will reward you with smiles and enjoyment, but important of all get those controls adjusted to your liking first before doing serious riding, it will make it all the better. take the pins out the lever mounts and turn them down as far as possible, the clutch one i had to take off the clutch switch to get it to my tastes, now ive got much better clutch control, smoother, also dont forget the throttle spring mod, the extra spring is on the left hand side of the throttle bodies, if you twist the throttle open and closed youll see it, just unhuck it from its stop and the throttle will feel smoother as well. do you ever come south of the border ?

My opinion is it depens what kind of rider are you....F4 is more difficult to ride like other Jap bikes!For example,wen MV teams have new rider,he must ride a lot before to be fast.....
