When it comes to riding; the 750 is the best handling MV I have riden, better than the 312 any day, much smoother, easier to throw around and just a very enjoyable ride. The EV03 engine isnt too bad either for road use, especually country roads if keeping it in high revs.

obviously more power would be better but if you take all considerations i.e. looks (750 is best looking MV ever), handling again 750 wins outright as a stock bike straight from showroom without mods) Performance (well we all know the 750 needs that little bit more bhp) but in high revs it still has more than enough power


all in all, i can only compare the EV03 and 312R but the old trusty EV03 wins outright


race and track only-guys may have an understandable different opinion


sorry, thought you guys were talking about MV's, must have read it wrong, cant be assed deleting so just added this.

I don't think there is a 'best' all round capacity, each has it's merits. I find the smaller engined bikes a bit buzzy, always having to keep playing tunes on the gearbox to keep them on song (although this in itself can be a lot of fun) whereas a bigger engine with more torque requires less use of the gearbox. The only 800cc bike I've owned was a VFR and I kept thinking they should have made a 1000cc version of that bike. I think on balance I'd opt for the 1000cc in line 4, but if money permits I'd love to own a 675 triple too, preferably with an MV badge on it (No disrespect to Triumph).

Depends on how much each engine would weigh. A 1300cc that made the bike 500 pounds would make the F4, not an F4 since it's handling would be seriously compromised. If you can get up to a 1200 or 1300cc (like the 1098/1198) without adding weight, that would be interesting. Add a power control system (like the GSXRs or the 1198S) so the output can be adapted for the rider's usage.
