Since the re-design came in 2010 and the update in 2013? Maybe 2015 as a 2016 model?

The only thing they got right with the F3 was the colour schemes. Especially the red silver.

Im hoping the F4 looks somewhat different and keeps some of its heritage. Less weight definatley and electronics that work plus better colour schemes.

Would it be a goid move having 3 models looking sll the same??? F3 675 F3 800 and F4?? I dont think soo. The F4 has to be numero uno in all respects. Just my opinion.

Which just proves the old saying, ask a silly question....

We're all here, but we're not all there.

Stand the two next to each other and they already look very similar, close enough at least.
I'd hate it the F3 and F4 looked the same, perfect example is those Gsxr's and ZX's.
No thanks.

F4 - why change perfection? It still looks class leading - well to me at least.

I'm no MV aficionado, but aren't both the F4 and B4 quite old in design? I remember seeing a 2004 Brutale 750 at a dealership and thought to myself it looked very similar to the current 1090. In looks alone either bike beats the competition hands down.

Must be a headache for the designers, as one of the most iconic view of the F4 must be the 4 pipes under the seat, yet surely if they want to drop the weight and bring it in line with how bike desigs are moving forwards they need to have it F3 style. I think F4 owners would hate that wouldn't they?

What was so special about the 312 ?

I think MV needs to get the current F4's running more reliably before they bring any limited editions out.

I dont see them making them look the same. They want to keep them differentiated. If it was a case of "sausage by the length" then you wouldn't have those buyers who are bumping up to the F4 just for the "exclusivity" of having the expensive model. While they might be posers they are a very profitable customer.
