Not looking to spend all day arguing aesthetics of the two bikes, but really curious to know how the new mv motor feels.

Steve has a 2010 F4, we have not swapped yet but have done a couple of side by side roll on's, oddly with it's short stroke engine the lower the rpm which we start from (2500rpm) the bigger the initial advantgae the S1000 has..........surprised me pleasantly

If we both start from say 5000 rpm the two bikes go side by side and inch by inch untill I guess they reach about 10/11000 rpm where the S1000 again starts to pull away.........not surprising given the figures.

The 2010 F4 has a very strong engine-no doubt, and kept in the range we all use them most (I assume) of 5000-9000rpm's on a usual ride out there is little if nothing in between them, hope that helps

MV's all gone now, still have a soft spot for MV's, waiting for MV to tick all my boxes again.
