Newbie - need buying advice F4 750 or 1000

To all F4 lovers,
I'm looking for your buying advice to choose between :
- F4 750 (2000) with 3000mls (1 previous owner)
- or F4 1000 (2006) with 10000mls (2 previous owners)
Both are in good/mint condition and same price.
Color is Red/Grey and both are monoposto.
Looking forward to receiving your recommendations.
Thank you very much in advance.

For sure I would choose the 1000. So much more bike than the 750. In the end both are great and very nice looking bikes, but the 1000 is impressive in every way. It also matters what your preferences are...

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

A year 2000 F4 750 is most likely a single radiator model, not sure where in the world you are but if it is a warm climate unlike the UK that may be a factor.

Other than that a test ride will make your mind up for you, I love my 750, a 1000 is great fun but for me I like to work a bike and engine hard and having less bhp and torque is not a hindrance chasing bigger cc bikes.

First, a question for you: Newbie to MV Agusta or to riding in general? Both bikes are quite involving to ride and definitely not for beginners. Just FYI.

The 750 screams like no other. Even compared to my 312R, my old 750S sounded better at high revs. Also, in the coming years, the 750 will probably be worth more due to it being the "original" F4. That and it has fewer miles.

That's my $37 and change.

Compared to a 996, what do you think of the F4 1000's riding position?

I would go for the 750, but I am biased as have a 750 Senna.

The 1000 is nice as well, but too much power for me. I am content with the power that I get and don't need anymore than that. The fact that you can do 90 in first says it all.

The power one person holds is not determined by the individual but by the audience who recieves them.

MV Agusta F4 750 Senna 106/300
Triumph Street Triple

Wouldn't think it's too much different. I've never ridden a 996, but I've ridden a 999 and 1098. F4 is a little more aggressive than those, but it could have been bike set-up. Every Duc I've ridden has been more comfortable than my F4s. Imagine sitting on a plank of wood fitted with handlebars while being fired out of a cannon with an F1 car screaming in your ear. That's pretty much what it's like riding an F4.

You sound like you are quoting Hunter S. Thompson.

What about the ergos of the 750 vs the 1000. Arent the 750's more cramped?

Yes. The ergos were relieved on the 1000 model. The handlebars were raised just a little, but apparently it makes a big difference.

One question: what is the pricing differential between the bikes?

910R, S4RS Monster,'78 BMW R100S, Heritage Softail, Chrome V-Rod, Sportster 48, Kawasaki Concours 1400, '07 Ultra Classic with sidecar, yellow Vespa LX 150, a cool little Ruckus, and a very understanding wife........
