Hello all!

Hi all, just thought I would introduce myself My name is Tom and I live on the Gold Coast, Australia.

Just started to really get into MV Augustas, and at the end of the year I plan on purchasing the 2002 F4 Senna.

Anybody here ride this bike and can give me some info (good and bad) on it? Do you ride it regularly??

So far all the people I have spoken to havent really given me much feedback on it as it doesnt appear to be a bike that people ride alot?

Welcome! Great group here, but you people from down under are about to take over!!

I don't have a Senna, but I think if I had one I would be just as pleased looking at it in the living room as riding it. Best looking bikes on the planet.

I do plan on riding my 910R as much as possible......also one of the best looking bikes on the planet in my opinion.

I vote for riding the hell out of it!

Agree on both bikes there

If I was ever going to get a naked bike (one day I will) it would be a brutal or some kond of buell.

I plan on riding the hell out of this bike :P but was just wondering how other people go with them.. the dealership was like "Yeah most people buy them as collectors items..." they had one there with 1000km on it that had been on display for 12 months and was owned by the store owner, and it got me wondering, if its such a nice bike why doesnt he ride it?

Anyways, the dealership didnt really take me all that seriously because I am only 18... but meh.

Wlecome Jimsmowen ,

Ride the pant's off it, it can take it. I believe the reason many of them still have low kms on them is that as a special edition they were very expensive and exclusive and people didn't want to lose too much by clocking up the k's...but if it's your bike you do what the hell you want with it.

I'm sure you're aware of it but I'd hate to imagine what the insurance must be for someone 18.


How much are they asking for it?

Theres currently 3 for sale in Aus that I know of.

1. at the Gold Coast dealership, they want $42,000 (all prices are AUD) 1000km and $6000 worth of carbon fibre on it.

2. Somewhere in aus... I think its a 2001?? It has 0km never even been started. $30,000

3. Somewhere else in aus.... 2002, 14,000kms, few aftermarket bits I believe, he wants $27,500 he just dropped it from $32,000 and took out the bonus race glass with it.

I was quoted $3000 for my insurance on my CBR250RR..... and that was covered for $5000. I am expecting the worse with this haha. I will deal with it though.. I figure its most likely going to be that rediculous, that if I crash it I would have to snap it in 2 for the cost of my insurance to be worthwhile... but will see.

There's also one available here at the local...it's the one in my album. They are asking AU$38,000 and has 5K on the clock but I think they would let it go for $32,000. It also has Agostini's sig on it.
