Would you trade a new F4 for...an old F4?

I want to keep an F4 for life and came across with two very low mile F4s LE and 5* condition ( AGO and a Senna) and thought it would be better to keep a "special" numbered bike instead of the 1078!
Regarding motor and components Im going back but I also love the looks of this two bikes.
Whats putting me off is the price, considering both are asking almost the same price of a brand new F4 (2010).
I ride my bikes almost every week so Im just afraid that Ill leave a perfect 1078 - so far - and get into a LE that would cost me more than what I wanted. Let me know your opinion!

Stick with your 312. You'll be in for some disappointment otherwise...

When I disagree with a rational man, I let reality be our final arbiter; if I am right, he will learn; if I am wrong, I will; one of us will win, but both will profit.

Hi ARAMIS,

I Bought my Ago number 2/300 for the same reason to keep it for life as it is a special bike & its very rare to see another when riding it.

At the time i was buying it the salesman was trying to sell me a 2009 1078RR instead of getting a 2004 model Ago which at the time the price was the same for the 1078RR & now looking back at it so glad i bought the Ago as i have a piece of History sitting in my Garage.

I know what you mean but thats something I should be prepared to loose...a blast of a motor with better specs!
On the other hand if its for keeping it should be a special edition!

I bet you'll have to pay a fair bit to trade in the 1078 for the LE (o Filipe no perdoa lol) so i say keep the 1078.
If for some reason you can get a very good trade in value, then why not?
But in the end an Ago or a Senna are just different paint schemes and small numbered plaque.... in fact you'll lose a fair bit on handling (brakes) if you go for the AGO.
Good luck on your decision.

Keep your 1078 & try to budget a LE bike later. Have the LE bike for special occasions & put miles on the 1078.

If at first you don't succeed, use a hammer instead
