MV Test Ride, Scotland this weekend.

R.D. Motorbikes, Inchmichael Garage. DundeeRd, Errol, Perthshire.PH2 7RR.
are hosting an MV Agusta open weekend Friday2nd April to Monday 5th April.
Escorted test rides available on F4, 990 & 1090 Brutale. test route not too bad either.

This F4 is just so different, it starts from picking it off the stand. Where did the weight go?
Then it was where did the ground go, I am vertically challenged, 29" inseam ,its a tiptoe job but whatever was done with weight distribution its easy to balance .
The suspension is the next revelation then the motor , it feels slow ,no hits just linear pull, perfect manners, nice burbles. The brakes are instant hit variety.
It makes going fast so easy and comfy and it is quick . This is a well sorted F4. I have no complaints .

I rode both Brutales and preferred the 990 ,neither of which approach
the F4 in terms of engine refinement and suspension. I really should have tried the Brutales first .

I am still amazed how something that looks the same can feel and be so different yet still retain that MV DNA .

Dave did say this bike was used by Moto GB for track use so it is possible the rear had been lifted .

A warm welcome awaits and if you are lucky another day of sunshine .
