"This is an extremely fast motorcycle. In the right hands it will be competitive in Superstock racing—especially with all the electronics already homologated for racing. No wonder Giovanni Castiglioni has already committed MV Agusta to World Superbike next year, anticipating that series’ move toward rules forcing bikes closer to stock form. The latest F4RR has what it takes to be a contender."


What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

I have a lot of time for Alans reports, except for this one when he comes out with stuff like this:

The handling is every bit as impressive as the acceleration, thanks to the Öhlins electronic suspension, which uses the company’s Mechatronic technology and a stand-alone ECU to automatically adjust damping on the fly in response to changing riding conditions.

PS: It doesn't do this

MV's all gone now, still have a soft spot for MV's, waiting for MV to tick all my boxes again.
Previously (and about 40 others)748SP, S4, S4R, 98R1, 2000 F4, F41000S, F41000R, 08R1, 09R1, S1000RR, RSV4 Factory aPRC in Garage now
