How different is the R312R from the R312RR?

Does the additional 70cc make a big difference in acceleration, top speed, power delivery?

Is engine displacement the only difference or are there more goodies on the 1078?

Sorry for the questions but is this example a good deal?

0 miles according to the ad but a bit expensive at $17K isnt it?

Well...I would say that it is a good deal. If I would be in your position I would buy it. The ultimate F4.
More power and more torque. Than any other one...

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.

Another biased 1078RR312 owner here. Definitely the best of the first generation F4's; excluding the Tambo & CC of course. $17k seems high if you're buying it to ride. If zero miles is accurate, you can probably plan on replacing every oil seal on the bike before riding it.

Depending on where in the world you are, that price is not to bad. Now they are called the F4 312RR because of the 1078 engine as you know already, but they also have mono-block brakes.
Slightly better suspension and fuelling as well as bigger throttle bodies, making for a very powerfull beast, still one of the most powerfull rad bikes I have ever ridden in anger.

Why ? Surely not.

Dry rot. Seals can dry out and crack when not kept moist by oil circulating around them; went through that with multiple seals on mine. Of course, I'm making an assumption the an '09 bike with zero miles has not been started and run in five years.

Then again, I could be wrong. I'm interested in hearing from those more mechanically inclined than me (which shouldn't be uncommon).

Oh you're probably right in some aspects, just a bit extreme in saying all seals will have to be replaced. It also depends heavily on what kind of climate the bike was kept in etc.
Many a bike on the forum have come out of storage with nothing but fuel line replacements as well as tyre and other minor fluid changes.

I think the price is good seeing I paid $32,000.00 for my 1078 in 2010,same colour as mine too.You will be very happy with the bike,they are a monster.

Sweet looking bike. I like it a lot. I have always tried to dig up research on what the rwhp was on that puppy

True and true; saying "every oil seal" was a bit of an overstatement. And right again, climate does make a big difference. With mine, multiple years of storage in a hot Florida garage must have taken its toll on many of the seals.
