Time for a change .. or not

Well my Dragster RR will be 3 years old in March and I've had 7000 trouble free wonderful miles


There are no other bikes out there that I hanker after and MV seem a while away from releasing either a new 3 or 4 cylinder bike


So should I just keep and wait for the bigger brother to maybe one day be born or swap for a shiny newer Euro 4 model?


No real reason to change other that having something 'new' - the only thing I've never been that keen on are the red front forks.


There doesn't seem to be any reason to change other that a shiny bike and 3 years warranty & avoiding the valve service


I guess Ms Sensible says hold on until MV bring out something new that's worth swapping for and gives a few more ponies

Like you said, probably smart to wait. Not the easiest thing to do though 😆. Would be fantastic to see a 1200cc Brutale in 2018 🤗

Faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death

About to switch next month from the third F3, this time an 800RC to my first naked bike a Dragster RR. (MY17)

Reason being warranty has just expired, 10,000 miles already on the clock and a very good p/x offer.

Now should I have waited for the 2018 version, with the improved engine, new gearbox and sprag design and a more expensive bike?

Problem being, is when will it be available May? By that time there would be another 2000+ miles on the clock and the p/xwill not be anywhere as good.

I hope it is a decision that I do not regret

That’s the thing really - knowing what’s round the corner - looks like the F4 is getting the revamp at the moment - not sure like Bruce is it’s worth the extra money for the euro 4

I think I’ll probably hang on another year

Although the brutale RC looks mighty pretty

I'd probably go for a new (preregistered) KTM Superduke GT, you can pick them up for £11k, £5k off list price!

Interested in anything that Sucks, Bangs and Blows!

Guys,

Do not be overly concerned about the valve check, I had mine checked by Bennetts when I hit 7.5k and it was a half hour thing added to a service and in fact none of the valves were out of range, so no extra work needed doing. The tech did say once the first valve check is carried out he very rarely ever had to re shim any bike, and that as the mileage goes up little change happens.

My B800 is over 20k miles now and have been checked again and no adjustment is needed. So don't think hanging onto your bike is a mad thing, certainly look at shiney new stuff, and if you like me just buy one of those as well lol.

Regards
