07 1000R or 06 1000S

Ok I am in the market for one of these beauties and have been offered the 1000R for 23000+tax or a 06 1000s for 18999. Is the R worth the 5K difference. I will be using this bike for the street only and have a Ducati 749S. Any help would be great. If the 1000R what is the color to get. If the 06 I would go with the red and silver. Is the new 1000R so much better and worth the extra 5K or would that be to have the best and newest.

Will your dealer allow you to take both on a demo ride? That's the best way to decide. Also, $19K is a good price for a '06. I got mine for $20K + a $600 jacket.

Also, the R also comes in Red/Silver but has a bit more red in the silver section. There's a picture in the gallery.

Here you go:

I just bought a black/mono 1000R. I didn't consider a 1000S at all. I bought the R instead of a Senna. But... $19K is a good value for the '06.

Color is subjective, but my obvious preference is black. There is NO BAD MV choice. Glad you're getting one. Love the Duc, too.

Appearance... Haven't come across an MV color combination causing more weak knees and increased heart rates than the red/silver with the silver star wheels. An MV F4 with a routine color combination or routine black wheels or fruitful colors (As models since have looked) could offer twice the performance of this F4 1000S and I wouldn't get it.

Performance... Egads, the F4 1000S offers more performance than just about any mortal can handle. You plan on 170mph+ on the road? Want to drag other bikes from stop lights? Zzzzzz. A thinking person notes even the 1000S is waaay overkill.

This is a very interesting question. As an 'S' owner who likes the trad Red/Silver, it might be easy to say, I'll keep the $5k in my pocket and buy an 'S', you can get a radial front brake set up for about $2K of the 5 you will have saved and the performance issue, as stated above, is fairly academic on the road. I think the question can only be answered by those guys who used to have an 'S' and now have the 'R'. I remember wondering whether I should go out and swap my 750 F4 for the 1000. Would I really need the extra performance etc. etc.? All I can say is I don't regret making that choice, so maybe it is worth the extra for the 'R'

In my opinion........

You have 2 choices....

1/ Get the 'R'

-OR-

2/ Get a jump on finding a corner in your house where you can comfortably lie in a Fetal Position.......

There is NO logic to owning an MV.

If the 'R' had silver wheels and (possibly) a red frame there is no way I would have chosen my Senna over a red and silver 'R'.......

However, I had no interest in the 'S', because I didn't like the front brakes...!

Performance issues are irrelevant. Performance issues are put in context the first time, on your favorite twisty road, some 19yr old gangbangin' kinda kid, passes you on the inside,- riding a'93 R6, on bald Cheng Shin tires...... hopefully it will be when you're hung up behind traffic!

On any modern motorcycle, ultimate performance comes down to your reluctance level.... reluctance to die!

I ride at about 80%. At 80%, I going WAAAYY the fuck faster on the Senna that any other bike I've ever ridden....... love it! Still get passed on the inside by gangbangin' kinda kids on old R6's... but now it's aways when I'm stuck behind traffic...

My suggestion: Get the 'R'
