rode an F4 1000 yesterday

So we were out and about yesterday and ran into a friend who has an F4 1000. He encouraged me to take it for a quick spin. I was hesitant, in part due to the fact that my knees *really* don't like a tight tuck - nor does my back. But I figured I wouldn't get that opportunity often, so I fired it up and took it down the road a bit.

Holy crap.

I want one. Not sure I have the garage space. But...holy crap.

That is all

Yes these bikes have a knack of luring you, just one little test ride and boom, your hooked, no turning back now, just model and colour choices needed

When I "test" rode my 1000R, after deciding to buy it, MV guys understand, as quick as it is I could not keep up with Eraldo Ferracci ( the guy is a racing champion anyway) on his F4 750 in traffic!

Wait till you try a 1078

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.

I'll second that one, I was smitten all those years ago with my first 750,
then, when the 1000 came along I was in heaven, but the 1078 is a raw animal, absolutely crackers and I love it

I have on occasion considered a 1080 conversion for my 1000R.
I just have too many toys and projects to do it right now.
My cancer operation has led me to reprioritize, not stop riding though!

Finally took my Senna 1000 for a proper ride last friday. Same thoughts as you - just wow. Not sure how much fettling has occurred under the previous owners, but the throttle response has been calmed a lot compared to my Brutale 910s that I previously owned, the brembos are a leagues better than the nissin callipers. They say you shouldnt meet your heros but this time the story ends well. Great bike, and enjoy the handling style. Still has that big bike stability but not too slow in the steering either. The wide handlebars feel natural once you get in the twisties. Awesome. Temperamental? YES she runs hot. Any lengthy traffic light stops and I start to watch the temp guage climbing quickly. My only gripe.
