g'day

G'day all,

Just an introduction.

I was thinking of a 1098s but had a look at a 312R today and it changed my mind a little. The build quality is spectacular.
I test road a 1000R but cannot get a ride on a 1098.
Anyway you can probably tell my choice by my name. There was also a matt black F41000S 'nero' build 20/21 at the dealer, does anyhting know anything about this bike? I think they may only be a special edition in Australia?

Cheers

Hi and welcome to the forum. The 312 is a great choice of bike. However, most certainly nothing wrong with the 1000 S model. I suppose it depends on your budget.

welcome to mv.net!

mv did make a matte black 1000s a few years back.

I believe she is the Devil in a candy wrapper.

White/black.

I have just read 28 pages of the poll 'what's the max temp your bike reaches' and have come to the conclusion that MV's just run a bitter hotter than other bikes it seems.
I don't mean to beat the dead horse but, is it really that big of an issue?
The demo today got to 119C sitting for 3 or 4 mins in traffic but if you keep moving it should be fine right?
Why do I always have to research things on the net hahaha, it gets me so paranoid

get the 312, yes it gets hot in traffic but is it really that bad having a hot arse, no, coz in a few mins your moving again. riden lots of sports bikes and MV is easily one of the best ever. it's not something your ever regret, just make sure you like yoru colour choice.

The "limited edition" matte was just numbered in australia. It was actually a standard model here in the states and other parts of the world.

yes the bike runs hotter than others but you soon get used to it as "normal" and not a problem that will hurt you or the bike. Go out and have fun!

You could always go back for a second demo ride and allow the 312 to idle for a few mintues. I think you'll see the temperatures rise but then stablize when the fans turn on.
