Thumbs up Mv Agusta F41000r 2007

Hi to all MV enthusiasts!!!
Im new to this forum and thought i would say hi from Down Under in Melbourne.I recently just purchased an F41000R Black/grey color MV,and just wanted to know if there are any flaws with this model???I have owned Ducati and all the Jap bikes before BUT this Italian BEAST is the cream of the crop for me.Unbelieveable POWER and handling.Its just on 10500klms.Any feedback would be appreiciated.
Cheers

I see you bought the best model MV ever made, and also have the best colour scheme. Haha.

When I first got mine within a few weeks it required a new radiator. There was coolent pissing out from the top. But it was covered in the warrany. It was replaced and stronger mountings were added. Apart from that its been perfect. Hope you have as much fun with yours as I do with mine. Good luck.

There was a cam chain tensioner recall that affected some 1000R models radiator breaking, other than that there are no real issues.

The 1000R does however suffer for hot running in slow going, This however is not an issue as long as you keep the average speed over 50km/h (I also switch-off the engine if I know the traffic lights will hold me up for a long time).

The OEM sound on the 1000R is pretty good from the riders seat, the Arrow RG3 system (from MV Agusta) is a popular choice for an alternative exhaust (it makes the bike louder - I have RG3's on my bike) there are others (from MV, Bodis, Moto Corse etc) and they are all expensive (PS don't forget the ECU).

As you indicate the bike has plenty of power, the best part of an upgraded exhaust is they run a bit cooler (see a pattern forming here).

I don't find the exhaust to be any hotter than my Ducati (996R) and for that matter neither is the hot running any worse.
