Talking Confused on what to buy and need input!

I am looking to purchase an MV either 06, 07r or 08 312. I have read alot of stuff and would like some personal responses. I can get the 06 for 17,500 or the 07r for 20,000 but they want 24,000 for the 08. I am torn over what one to get and how much difference their really is between the 3. Any suggestions will be much appreciated. The 06 is such a good deal, and the R seems to be the best of both worlds, good price and new upgrades which are close to the 312. Help me.

well not knowing much about the other bikes and owning a 312 I and my buddies owning a 750 I really do not think you would be overly unhappy with any of them I am sure there are downfalls in each but either way I would buy the one that is screaming at you even know they all look the same one of them has your name on it. But I am about to post up about my 312 ride today so not sure how much convincing that will do for you

Normally, I'd say the S is a great deal but the 312....wow! I think you're looking at a 20hp difference between the S and the 312. I guess the way I'm seeing it is, you're already paying $17/$18K for a sport bike, so why compromise at this pont. You may as well go all the way and get the 312....but that's just my opinion.

in my opinion, the f4s has enough power to satisfy anyone, dont let hp be the reason of your choice, all mv are great bikes, like the man said 2 posts up, buy the bike that talks to you the most. but whatever you buy, we all hope you be safe on it, and customize it to high heaven, and post pics, lol we love pics. good luck

yeah, why compromise? get a CC and get it over with.

seriously, use the MV for group rides and bike nights and maybe a track day here and there. use the extra $$ and get a cheaper bike that still screams, then you can ride the wheels off of one (to work and on the track) and have the MV as your baby...

I agree with your opinion, i.e. if you're buying new go for the 312 unless you can't really afford it, and if not go for the R.

But i really doubt there's a 20hp difference between the S and the 312R.
I'd say it's way less.
The thing is the R's are a lot more smooth and the biggest difference is in the lighter wheels and better brakes
