If the color is the same that you lik I would go for the 2013. I also have one and is a fantastic bike;)

2012 because I'm a retrogrouch and don't like the idea of electronic throttle bodies

My 14 is fabulous, although I don't know why my brake discs warped so soon at 8K miles, but it is now confirmed so. I guess just because it says Brembo doesn't mean it won't have issues.

I went through a similar decision with 2012 f4R and 2013 f4. I ended up going with the 13 strictly because of color. if you are really going to customize it I would go with the 12 if you are going to slap some bolt ons and enjoy it fairly stock go with the 13.

I would add that 2012 was the last year before they went to fly by wire throttle and also change to eldor ECU. I have a 2012 F4RR and my friend had a 2013 F4. A few subtitle differences I have notice

- Almost no tension on 2013 F4 throttle compared to 2012 F4RR which I did not like

- Issues with sensor light for exhaust valve till he removed the whole assembly

- With the change of ECU the only option for a tuner was the rapid bike which was more expensive than the power commander.

- 2013 F4 had the quickshifter which I wish the 2012 had but I will add myself

- 2012 have the reqular Olins and not the adjustable electronics Olins shocks

- There seem to be more fuel map updates for 2013 Eldor ECU than 2012.

- I prefer the 2012 Colour Scheme better personally but that is my personal choice.

Hopefully my inputs help, either bike you choose I am sure you will be happy owning an MV. For me the 2012 I was able to map and fix some of the fueling issues cheaper than the 2013 fueling issues my friend experience. Not sure if fueling is still an issue as this was about a year ago.
