312 prices

Here in the UK, you can't help noticing that 312 prices are dropping. For instance, the RRP is £14995, certain dealers are selling them for £12995. Much more of a sensible price and brings us more inline with Europe etc. My personal opinion is that the 312 model is struggling to sell in the UK. OK, yes we know about the uprated parts etc, but most won't change from their R models and even the S model. Also, certain bike reporters like MCN have not given it a gleaming write up. I think people are sticking with what they have got and possibly waiting for 2009. No one want to throw money away!

I agree with everything you say. I think most people are waiting to see what the new MV is like now and there are probably going to be great deals on the 312 models when that happens. I'm not in a position to change my bike right now, but even if I could, with no disrespect to current owners, a 312 wouldn't be on my shopping list.

wise words

im sitting here with cash awaiting a good deal, no hurry as winter is aproaching (although a 312 would be an excellent centre piece in the home) until spring.

doesnt matter if its a 2007 or 2008 plate as private number will be going on and I wont be looking to sell it on, for a long long time.

I really want to deal with my local dealer but when you see prices of £12994 for a new 312, its one heck of a saving even better deals on F4 1000R, I think i will sit tight and wait see what comes up (now that im over the "need it now" urge).

you never know a nice low milage senna or tambo might pop up as i wait

you know my views warren, just waiting until the time is right

Yes, I agree with that.

If it were me, I would wait to see if something new is coming...unless a nice Tambo came along

NiceN...what happened about the Tambo, did you buy it? Do you have it yet?

SENNA 070/300

Unfortunately the new MV coming is a "triple" supersport, but not a 1000 cc. For that you must wait untill 2009 or 2010.

I prefer to enjoy my F4R today, and in 2010 I will calculate my options again. But anyway, the current F4 is awesome and beautiful and always its a good deal.

Is is blasphemy...

to suggest that the new Bimotas--especially the new TESI and DB5 are stealing some of the Italian limelight? Mmm... billet spar frames and trellis swingarms...

not blasphemy at all. In fact several members have a bit of a Bimota affliction.... I'm looking at them now as the next thing in the garage.... but right now it's competing against....buying something with a garage!

The DB5 C is what I'm looking at.
