Old and New F4 Comparative Pictures.

Sorry, I tried to get the angles as close as possible with what's available.

Finally....this is what we need to see!
They are so similar but also so different; if i was not an owner of an F4 i'd buy a red and silver one!
About the new i like the tail (excluding exaust of course) and instruments that i'd like on my bike.
I'm not sure about the nose of the new one.......

so
what is your opinion Allen??
As a big guy, i am kinda partial to the older, bulkier looking style
And i am always a sucker for anolog tach sweep. I think it has a more mechanical connection than a digital readout (just my opinion)
but i am happy to see they adressed the street riding cooling issue with the big vent holes (though it could have been a little more appealing to the eye)
I am jealous of the led tail and turn signals though :-(
Overall, good on MV for the step foward

Italian outfit, Rubber, heat, grunting, and you fill the open hole for more?? What's not to love??

Save the tank logo, I just noticed the new bike doesn't say MV Agusta on it.

It doesn't have to. Nothing else could be mistaken for it....

But what about all the people who ask, "What kind of bike is it?" Now, you'd have to explain it to them instead of pointing to the name and riding off.

It's slowly growing on me -which is rare. Also, based on the number people who are/were slightly jaded with MV saying the new bike is beautiful in real life, I'll give the new bike the benefit of the doubt.
