Talking My idea of MV Design...(trial)

Hey guys...thought I should share this and post this up just for the heck of it.

I'm thinking of designing a new look for my MV F4, and if I like it...I might build a prototype and convert my 750 to my new design. So it will be one-of-a-kind MV

I just did a quick Photoshop Rendering (Drawing) of how it would look from the side view.

Let me know what you guys think, dislike, like, etc..

**sorry if it's hard to understand...I'll build a 3D model later on and it will be easier to read**

Enjoy

~Sergey~

P.S.. I did a little touch to the rim as well. :P

Don't know about the swoopy line on the middle of the fairing but otherwise, I like it better than the 2010 F4.

While i really like your thinking, I think you're biting off a SERIOUS amount of engineering and later an insurance / road worthy certificate nightmare.

Fairing changes aren't that big an issue - plus you can always change them back to stock for MOT/vehicle inspection.

Changes to the fuel tank will require re-certification of a very tightly controlled part and cost serious money. They're costly to make as it is. Proving a one off design is road safe and fit for use might be a massive task in itself.

Your exhaust system looks like it kicks exhaust out sideways -

- you'll have to look at how this influences the drag on the bike as it will be dumping hot expanding gas into the flow around the bike. (drastically changing the flow from the perfect 'tear drop shape')

- you'll have to look at how noisy it is and if it makes a mess of the exhaust flow from the engine. (this could lead to flow resonance/intake/exhaust problems)

Structural changes to the wheel are going to be a MAJOR design issue.

In short mate - while i like where you're heads at, unless you have a serious amount of cash and/or a bored team of designers with FEA and CFD on tap. Then you're looking at more than a quick 'new look project'.

But feel free to prove me wrong and i'll be the first to buy you a beer.

THanks buddy. I don't like the line either...I will do some more versions today and I'll post them up.

I like it, wheels are good too, except try with a little less ''spin'' on them?

I actually like it. A lot.
Stick with your vision, don't let others dilute it - otherwise you end up with a committee designing a camel instead of a horse.

Isn't it a lot of work to change the swing arm round to the other side?
