Upgrading

Just a quick question, When is the right time to upgrade?

I purchased my MV F4 black in Jan 2012, new 2011 compliance, in 12 months ive put 20000k's on it. How many K's will the bike do?

My previous bike i purchased in 2004, new a GSXR1000 and got 70000k's with no issues at all, only one chain and sprocket set change.

Is it worth upgrading to the 2012 or 2013, just for electronics? Oh and not to forget daytime running lights? wow big deal, MV?

What would it be worth to sell with 12 months still on the warranty?

Ok any ideas would be good..Oh and its a much better bike than the GSXR and the R1 i used to own that someone wanted more than me!! bastards..

Mate, there's guys on here with more than 70k on their MV's, good to see you getting out and riding the thing.
If I where you, and I assume you have the non Corsa Corta motor? I would have a go at it, money permitted of course.
There is more to the new bike, other than the electronics, I like the daytime running light's.
Can't wait to see the new bikes in real life, any idea when they will hit Aus.

fal mate i have done over 100 k on mine its a 2006 910 s riden hard, serviced regular
i am very happy with it so far,. i wont be upgrading untill i get bored with it approx another 10yrs
upgradeing is more a personal choice than a time or date

i have a form of dislexia as i have said plenty of time and it dont bother me .................. but im not stupid or a tard so dont try it on


MV Brutale's go faster than a crackheads dole payment and that's fast

I WAS A BIKER BEFORE IT BECAME A FASHION STATEMENT

Hey thanks Donsy, and col, the bike is my daily drive, and has never missed a beat, apart from a bit of fairing warping that is common. The bike rarely gets over 6k rpm, so not too much stress on my bikes, lots of low speed, good to see others live on their bikes as well, just had the dealer saying If I wanted to keep some value in the bike I should trade it now before the k's are too high..I saw the new bikes have less torque, more bhp at a higher rpm, wouldn't his be worst for city runs?

Falzon with regular maintinance and periotic valve adjustments Ive seen roughly 15 bikes with over 200,000 miles on them and all still ran well. Today ven Harley Davidsons run 100,000 before needing a top end tear down . And a Harley being a 45 degree twin is tough on itself . Those big heavy pistons rise and fall together which beats the hell out of an engine.
You have many more miles to go .

You need to rev your bike more, mine see more revs than that from brand new. Low revs are very stressful if you're lugging the motor

Indeed. My 97 Fatboy with every single performance mod available is running strong at 90k+ on it. The only problems I have had are starter motors because of the high compression.

Have to agree. The F4 loves to scream. I often feel bad for mine as I run out of road well before it runs out of scream.
