Smile Senna or Tamburini?

As many on this forum know, I've always loved the Tamburini F4, to me it's a timeless classic and to own one would be a dream come true. I've noticed a few up for sale here in the UK recently and the prices seem to be coming down to around £20k, although there are still a few people who are looking for £30k plus but of course that's up to them.

My question is, whilst the Tamburini is a superb limited edition of the standard F41000 with all the lovely carbon bits and the variable inlet tract set up, I can buy a Senna 1000 for the same money which of course has the 1000R motor and the radial front brake set up which the Tambo doesn't have.

I'd welcome your views, I know there are Tambo owners here and of course Senna 1000 owners too, I'm not sure if anyone has both? Mr Burn perhaps, but if anyone does own (or has ridden both types) I would especially like to hear their views.

I have neither, but I'd go for the Tamburini. I just love that bike

Tiago old friend, your views are very important to me. Thanks for sharing them by PM. I think you are correct, if I do sell my current bike it will be replaced with a Tamburini.

Tamburini EVERY time!

Senna is nice, but is NOT a Tamburini.

The radial front brake isn't everything. In fact, you can change to Brembo master cylinder, and clutch assemblies, new steel lines, race pads, and the integrity of Tam is still there with better braking assured. And that is done on the cheap. The mounts and Brembo brakes CAN be done for ~$2K, I imagine.

Sit tight till you are able to get Tam.

Senna is beautiful, but IMHO the Tamburini is just a shock to see everytime I see one!

I bought the Senna over the Tamborini. 1000cc motor, limited to 300. Everyone has their opinion but go with your gut feeling.
