F4 Scoop !!!

Hello Guys

yesterday I went to the milan "fiero" and over the new F4 and other beautys
I must say at first I wasn't to keen on the the general design , but
after seeing it live I am really impressed !
It really looks as good as our "old" bikes but then after a serious diet.
Even the squere exhausts look thinner than on photo and come to their right
on the more sharper lines off the bike .the pipes are surtenly less bulky than even
our round ones.
Anyway I saw a bloke standing there ,on the side,dressed in MV overalls keeping an eye on things
and and we started talking about the bike..
Turns out he was involved in the disign and test riding..
Naturally I asked him about the engine and why they switched from 1078 to 1000..
The main reason whas,he says, that they wanted to be back in superstock and mayebe more..
I told him that it was a bit off a letdown as " notyhing replaces cubic inches"
and certanly after I test rided a 1078 with is bulky low down grunt.
Then he told me smiling that I was not to worry as later on(he could not give me a date yet) they will "most likely"
release a F4 RR version using the new 1090 engine as a base...

Hope I didnt get him into trouble...
cheers
Peter

THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS "TEAMWORK"

Maybe those parts will be available from the MV Store as performance upgrades for the regular 2010 F4.

IDEA!! Over the next 10 years, they should do a series of Limited Edition bikes named after iconic MV personalities; loaded up with CF, billet, etc. for a premium price. The F4 Morton could be the first.

Yeah i know, but i leave those to you

I don't care for bling, but a lighter weight "racy" spec bike wouldn't hurt

I agree. Do you want a track-only Pista or just the juicy bits on your street bike?

Since i don't really plan to race the new MV, the Veltro Pista would do fine

The subject of the new F4 is the source of much amusement. To me...
