so, what would you change, 'if' you decide to get the F4 Mark II?

sorry, if this has been debated before; i didn't get to read all of the postings.

i am totally happy with my '07. i prefer the 'Mark I' style over the new one. but, if my bike gets stolen or totaled, then, i would have to get the Mark II. if that happens, here are the stuff i would change right off the crate: (this list would get updated as more bikes hit the ground running and depending on what issues pop up)

- switch to good'ld organ-style pipes (hopefully someone makes them)
- front bumper (is it called that way?): either CF or red (for red/silver)
- CF heat-shield
- try to install the Mark I fairing and see what happens to the temperature. if there are problems, then try vent covers, like now. (might leave the lower outlet alone)
- check the wheel weights of the new and old Brembos. if Brembos are lighter, switch them!

i suppose that should do it. i am making a blind assumptions that there would be relevant parts available, either factory or after-market.

cheers.
henry.

This is another useless thread. Henry You never saw this bike, You never touched it, You have no clue about the performance but You think about modifying it. Plus if You would read the official statements from MV Agusta than You would have noticed that MV Agusta Corse will launch optional pieces and bits which You can see in 3D on the online configurator which will be launched in December @ mvagusta.it. Once You have fiddled the Bike together which would might suit You You click the order button. So patience buddy !

I think the square exhausts will date very quickly, so will the winkies.
Old style is better.

Well, I guess the info could be beneficial to MV as market research of what post-purchase parts they should make.

PS: About two years ago, I sent an e-mail to MV Agusta USA's president about having an online configurator of colors and options just like auto manufacturers have. Orders could be sent directly to a selected dealer for processing.

Yes, would be nice, I can order a car to just about any colour or interior with a mutitude of extra's.

So lets change this around a little.

What options would you like to order factory fitted?
