Technical question about F4 2010

This bike is amazing and really more beautiful in reality than in picture. It was a great moment to see itin Milan.

Does someone know if the new F4 still has the EBS (engine brake system) which make this so incredible and noticeable sound ??

Thanks a lot.

You live more in 5 minutes on a bike like this, going
flat out, than most people live in a lifetime.

The RR has got both (standard slipper and EBS). I hope that the F4 2010 has also got both as according to me the sound made by the EBS is a trademark of MV. I fell in love when I heard this when I tested my first F4.

Pier ? Did you hear something about this ?

I forget to directly ask the question in Milan... :-(

How do you know--They haven't even announced the RR; Or do you mean the 2009 1078 RR?

Of course, when I say RR I speak about the 2009 1078. No one can answer ? :-(

I tried an my first mv about a year ago, there was a few things i didnt like. One was the seat height, very high, i am comparing it now to the ducati 999 that owned at the time. The other thing was that there was no engine braking. So evidently the system makes a distinctive sound, but apart from that what good does it do? I dont really see the advantages of not really beeing able to engine break. I suppose this might be something that you get used to, i came straight from the Ducati and was used to the way i could engine break with that bike. So maybe someone can explain to me why its good exept for the distinctive sound that it makes?

in the simplest terms

the ebs or a slipper clutch ...limits engine braking....

when reallly hard riding you are either on the gas or on the brakes....you are never coasting....
the ebs or slipper allows you to charge hard into a corner, braking really hard and bang a couple of downshifts and let out the clutch quickly without the rear wheel locking up and upsetting the chassis.....

I am sure you have experienced that if you bang a couple dwonshifts and let out the clutch fast, the rear will slide....this is prevented or limited.

A gun is not a weapon. It's a tool, like a butcher's knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator.

IIRC it has only a slipper clutch.

In my experience EBS is slightly unpredictable, though not unacceptably so. It takes some getting used to.
