I have ridden both on the street, to keep it simple:

*position wise the 848 wins hands down. I found the F4 750 to much of a wrist & back breaker.

*Sound wise the MV wins IMO. I still think my MV sounded better than the S4R w/termis that i just bought.

*Performance, both need to be revved but the MV more so. The Ducati is the better 'town' bike but if you are blasting the MV is fine.

*Looks the MV kills it.

If i were buying today i would buy the 848, purely because it's newer, has more new techo bits and easier to live with day to day IMO. If you were talking about a 1000S or R then i would say buy the MV without a doubt.
