New here

Hello,

I'm new here. My name is Maarten and I live in Belgium. I do not own a MV at this time, I have a Honda Hornet 600, but soon enough I'll have my MV .
I have one question at this time. In Belgium, most MV riders complain alot about the reliability of the MV F4. Most even got rid of the F4 because it spent more time at the dealer then on the road they say. When I searched around this forum I noticed most of you are really satisfied with the reliability of the F4. Is there a difference between the models sold in Europe and the US? Or are we in Europe just such a bunch of pussies that we start crying for the tiniest thing that goes wrong with our bike?

Grtz, Maarten

First, Welcome Aboard! You will learn a lot here, I certainly have.

With regard to the F4 in Belgium. Go to: www.1098-forum.com and look for "Pete". His avatar is the back of his neck with a tatoo that says La Vida Loca. He had an F4 and sold it to buy a 1098.
He may be able to give you some input.
He also ends his posts with Greetz. What is greetz?
He may even be a member here.

MV is the same worldwide. There is no such thing as Black pussies or White pussies or even yellow pussies.

I have never in my life heard lots of problem coming from an MV. Its either this is rumours or there is a saying monkey see monkey do.....

False alarm

Greetz is short for greetings wich is the same as regards I guess.

And I believe I know the Pete you mean. He is also member of the Belgian Hornets because his first bike was a Hornet. I already talked to him about the F4 and he had some serious bad luck with his F4. He had more than $5000 worth of repairs made within the first year, lucky for him within the warranty.

His experience with the F4 is one of the reasons why I asked if there was a difference between Europe and the US.

Here's another question I should ask according to a friend of mine. Are the MV's in the US put at full power or are they limited?

Welcome Maarten

As far as i know MV's are pretty reliable bikes.

It seems Peet had some minor issues with his MV, but if i remember correctly they were all solved under warranty and were minor things.
The main reason for him to trade his F4 for the 1098S was fuel cosumption

And if you compare the reliability of the F4 and the 1098 (at least the currents ones), then the MV wins hands down

Thanks for the welcome,

I feel pretty confident about the F4 after looking around this forum and reading your reactions. Luck is always a factor when you buy a bike.

I love the 312R in Pearl white/Black

Welcome, besides the minor stalling issue ( I haven't had the chance to do the MVblogspot adjustments, so just living with it for now) I love my SPR.
