Good question.

I've always been told 98 is better but 95 is acceptable. Anyhow, always put in 98 in my Brutale and Daytona and have had no issues.

MV Agusta F4 (2013)

It will run on either, frankly I just put 95 in mine as I think the benefits of 98 are marginal for road riding.

two points to consider:

(i) some countries in europe are increasing the bio ethanol
(or how it is called correctly in english) percentage in 95 octane
fuel. the name for it is E10 (10% bio ethanol). the
agreement under car and motorcycle manufactures is, that
E10 can ruin your engine with a single fill up, if the engine
is not specified for E10. except there is a clearance from the
manufacture to use E10 for your car/motorcycle, there is no
warranty. as you can expect, there is no clearance from
MV Agusta, i.e., if you fill up E10 you are at your own risk.

some countries, which have introduced E10, are: Germany
(all 95 octane fuel is E10, all higher grades are fine), France
(higher grades are fine), Austria, Finnland. US?????

so be very careful with gas once you are traveling in europe.

(ii) on my brutale 910R i just noticed that the bike runs
smoother on higher octane fuel. especially, some surging
completely disappeared since using Shell 100 octane fuel,
which is sold here in german (about 5% more expensive
than 95 octane).

from these experiences, i never buy fuel from any
no-name gas stations and nothing less than 98 octane
for both the brutale and the F4.

DO NOT run your bike on cheap fuel or poor octane rating.

You would not believe the amount of crud I pull out of carbs & the un seen damage it does to engines.

If you are not pulling motors apart on a regular basis then you would not know.

My mate is making a fortune replacing injector rails on some motors recently due to people trying to save a few quid filling up with cheap petrol/diesel.

I have just experimented with a twist & go 4 stroke scooter, only filling it with supermarket fuel for the last 4 month. IT STOPPED!!!!

The carb needle & float valve & atomiser were all covered in brown sludge & heavily stained. I cleaned out the tank & ultrasonic cleaned the carb before my little experiment so I could eliminate anything else.

You have been warned.

[WHY would you try to save 2p a litre when you have an MV?]

Mate if you use 95 just try to find a good one. 98 is better, burns better but is more expensive.

I have a 1078 and use both... Like one full tank of 98... One full of 95... One full of 98... If gas prices drop a little i only use 98!

One thing I know for sure: when you have chosen one type of fuel, 95 or 98, you should stick to it because otherwise you will damage your engine!
