MV F4 1000 - makes for a BAD rider...

Thought that tread topic might get some attention.

The 05 F4 1k is a FAST bike. At my last track day at Willow Springs, I was able to close the gap on an 06 Gixer 1k, which had a pipe, PCIII, and some dyno time. My MV is totally stock.

With that kind of power on tap, it make you get a little lazy as a rider. At least it seems like I get lazy. Or something, because I'm not getting any faster.

I really want to improve my corner speed, and I know this bike can do that. But with all that power on tap, it's more like "Why try to pass this guy here in the turn? I'll just get him at the next straight!"

Perhaps a nice 07 Honda CBR600RR would be a better choice for a track bike?

R6 or CBR600RR would be a great 4 stroke track bike. I would go for a current R6 as parts are cheap and they crash well - panels are strong.

The R6 is the closest thing to an Aprilia RS250 two-stroke (trackbike with lights) the way the engine revs and the way the power build up its like an on/off switch!! This should teach you good cornering speeds. I've seen a stock RS250 rider beat riders on 1000cc bikes at Eastern Creek by good 5-10seconds.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

+1 BUT an MV on the track must be an awesome experience!

A fast rider on a slow bike will beat a slow rider on a fast bike. Save your dough..wait until MV comes out with the 600!. That will be a great track bike.

Alex,

You know what you need better than anyone. I suspect if you took your F4 to a Fredie Spencer ( or similar) experience at Miller motorpark you would get the improvement on YOUR machine that you seek.

I was thinkin the same thing....get a 750, and wring its neck. It has the handling of your literbike, but without all the power...makes you have to work a little harder.

The new 07 Kawasaki ZX-6R is the perfect track weapon.
