Rsv Factory to f4 750?

Hi all, I`ve been checking out your forum and thought i`d say hello.

I`m getting itchy feet this winter and thoughts have turned to an f4 750. I currently ride an 04 rsv factory and have , amoung others , owned two duke`s and a mille R so i`m used to `italian character`.

The problem i`m having is finding one for sale ( never mind getting a test ride ) in scotland ( fife ). If anyone knows of one for sale , a nod in my direction would be appreciated.

Realistically I`m after a 2000ish red/silver with the darker wheels as i think i would need a divorce first if i spent any more on a bike.

Also if anyone has ridden both rsv factory and f4 750, any comparisons / opinions would be great.

Get an F41000. Easier to get, better ergonomics.

I would love to get a 1000, but factoring the cost of the bike plus the divorce / castration that would follow, i`ll have to hold out for a 750.

I've ridden both, I'd go with Mikes comments and get the 1000 F4 cos after the torque of the Aprillia V twin I think you will find the 750 F4 a bit buzzy (i.e. you will have to rev it much more than the Factory) whereas the 1000 will be less of a culture shock. From V2 to IL4 will be enough of a change without dropping 25% in capacity IMHO.

+1 on the above post. A 750 has a dead motor when you put it up against a Italian big twin, if its going to be a MV make it a 1,000. The cost is almost the same as "some 750's." I recently did some work on a F4 SPR(750) . on the test ride it was not close to my 1,000 F4 or my RSV. Sorry guy's I'm not bashing the smaller motor ,but if you want a big hit get a big bore.

theres a 750 on ebay at mo that looks like it will go cheap , it has some minor scuff damage but nowt bad by looks.
or
buy my 1000s!!! lol im selling it soon, have stripped a lot of my goodies off so that makes it cheaper but theres still some on!!
tbh , the 1000 is a vastly better bike than the 750 and pulls like a train which is why i got one over the 750 at the time!

Yeah, i`m going to have to test ride a 750 before i decide anything.

I`d probably down gear it and rev its tits off everywhere anyway



if i do decide on the thou, the wife, the kids , dog and gold fish will be on ebay keep your eyes peeled.

that sounds best. i have a 750, and i have had no problem with handling liter bikes unless there was a long straight involved. i've done indicated 175 more than once, and i ENJOY screaming the motor. i don't know who will let you test ride a 750 to that degree, but if you really want an MV a 750 isn't a loss at all. none of them are. ergos are a bit different between 750 and 1000 and that may make a difference for you. but as been said many times before, it comes down to the rider.
