MV or Duc???

I know I'm going to get a biased answer on this but I still think it will be interesting to hear your opinions. I want to buy a new Liter Italian and I don't know which one I want, or which one will be a better bike for me I should say. The 1098 or the F41000 (or I guess it would be the 1078 now LOL!).

Which is better as an all around streetbike i.e. 2 up riding and the occasional 200+ mile sprint.

Thanks for the input.

Can't make any comment about 2up riding on sports bikes because I'm not into it.....but I think twins make better 'street bikes' due to a very envious and useable amount of torque.

Ducati...everytime.
Unreal bike...I dont know why anyone would contemplate anything different ???
This is a rather unique question, never heard it before, but once you actually think about it, I'd take the Ducati....

Of course the Ducati !!....I mean, I know my answer is predicatabe, considering we are on an MV Forum.

1098....It's slower, doesn't look as good, not built as well, never won masterbike....although it does scare little children and old ladies when you ride past with your termis....broom broom, duc duc duc...

Please, get the Duke, you'll love it...and go visit 1098.net.

I've ridden the 1098s many times....nice bike, but not as thrilling as my F4 1000...i can only imagine how good the 312 is...


GO THE MV DUDE !!!!

For the street? Ducati. It's a little more comfortable and power is were you need it for the street and it's easier to manuver at slower speeds. Especially if you want two up riding because the seat is easily convertible. The F4 was never design to be a street bike and to paraphrase Castiglioni, that's what the Brutale is for.

I like the fact that the MV has a bigger gas tank. Both probably have the best chasis set ups in ALL of motorcycling. Man its a hard decision to make.
