I really have no idea, but I would be suprised if only 15 2003 F4's were imported to the US. And most F4's I've seen are single seaters anyway. I know because I wanted a 1+1 but couldn't find one.

Hi Vatoloco and welcome to mvagusta.net. I used to have a Evo III 750 F4 before I bought my current bike, a F41000S. The Evo III is a great bike, the last evolution of the 750F4, only the SPR and the SR versions were more powerful. If the price is right I think it would be a great buy. My current bike is, IMO better all round, it's certainly more powerful and I enjoy being lazy with the gearbox which the greater power and torque of the 1000cc motor allows you to do. The 750 is perhaps a better trackday bike, more focussed and revvy, if you ride one well, they are very rewarding. Many of the guys here on the site, will I am sure give you the benefit of their knowledge and experience, which is considerable. Whatever you do decide to get, 750 or 1000, I don't think you will be disappointed. The in line 4 will certainly take some getting used to after your Aprillia, shame you can't keep both. Look forward to hearing what you decide to go for in later posts.

part 2

John, Thanks for the welcome I really want the bike to put in my room even though my mother says other wise. Im only 19 but ive worked my but off,so my father gave me the go ahead and is willing to co-sign, even though im stubborn and i dont want him to. the aprilia is my fathers and mine we share it.he is trying to get the 910R in the mamba kit. I really want something to ride, to show everyone especialy my teachers in school who though i was a idoit (now im a Vw tech trying to be master certifed).
i dont like 1000's for everyday use. i like taking things slow then i shine kina like a butterfly,the dealer wants around $15k new what ya think??
thx

eric

Hi Eric, As you can see from my details on the left, I'm in the UK and as such, I'm not familiar with MV prices in the States. We have lots of members at your side of the water (see registry) I'm sure some of those guys will let you know their opinions on the price very soon. I Like your avatar BTW, I drive trains for a living

I don't think there was much of a difference beween the EVOII and EVOIII, right? I asked a dealer once and he said EVOIII were just California compliant.

That being said, I had and EVOII (2002) and a 1000 (2006). Handlingwise, they're very similar. The 1000 is a bit more comfortable but has a higher seat high. But the low end power on the 1000 is wonderful. The 750's lack of low end grunt was the thing I hated about the 750s. Actually, because of the low end power and slightly better ergos, I think the 1000 is a better street bike.

As for price, I do know dealers are offering 2006 MVs for $19,200 and some people here have gotten their 2000 MV for $9,000 to $10,000. Maybe that might give you some guidelines as to how much a 2003 750 should be. It's a new 2003 MV? Is the dealer Renaissance Motorcycles in Tucson? I heard they still have a new 2003 MV.

You know, if your dad's looking to get a Brutale, the two of you could probably work a good price on both a 2005 or F4S and Brutale.

Take a look at the prices of Beaudry Motorsports for Brutales and F4S:

I don't think the price I paid for my bikes would be much use to you Eric. My Evo III cost me the equivalent of US $18,750, but at the time, early 2005, the 1000 model hadn't been out long and the 750 models still commanded good prices here. A new 1000S can now be bought here for the same amount of money as they are being discounted due to the introduction of the 1000R.
