I've found one photo of a purported body change coming to the F4 1098 in 08, was wondering if anyone has heard anything or could refer me to any decent articles. My local dealer has 2 2007 F4 1000R's that he's a bit anxious to move and I'm wondering if it's worth waiting a little while and saving up some more dollars for whatever is around the corner in 08.

Hi welcome to the forum, this new model has been discussed here a bit, nobody's sure if it will make an appearence at the Milan show but the rumour is around...do a search on Milan and you should find a few threads about it.

In your position I'd be waiting to see what happens but either way I wouldn't expect to see this new model before 09 but I'm only guessing.

My dealer returns from Italy and I fear that one is not disappointed by EICMA (Milan). He discussed with Claudio Castiglioni and only of new colors are planned. The innovations should not be presented before 2008.

the 312 is the change for 2008. the change will not happen until 2009 or later. if they change the 312's to something else then that would make all 150 312's in the US limited editions which they are not they made just enough to race AMA this year.

so since the 08 312 is a new model you are waiting on a new color scheme? so if i own a 312 that would mean that is the new color scheme kind of lost to what that means. but they are talks of a 600cc motor that would be interesting

New 08 Brutale's have 2 fans now , an O2 sensor , single piece headers with the cat attached , and a new ECU . Still a 910 engine displacement for the R and S .

so we are talking about what the brutale is going to be in 08? not what the F4 is going to be because the 8 is already out

the 312R is in production since January 2007. So it is the 2007 model!

MV introduced the color scheme "white/black" in September 2006, as 1000R, and in January followed the 312R model. What I say is, if MV introduced a new color schema up to the end of 2007, than in 2008 will follow a new model.LOL.

^^^^ If you look at factory production dates that is a different story.

When you sell the bike or buy one you look at the documentations.

According to the paper work my F4R is 2007 and 312 is 2008 and I can prove this in court of law :)

Just one question: After launched a 100.000 euros bike (FCC), MV is really thinking about launching a new bike scheme in a short time?

Anyway, the F4 is an motorcycle icon, so any later schemes would be secondary bikes into the history.

I am absolutly convinced in keeping my actual bike as collection piece.

AGREE!!!
And something else.If they will not very committed to the current F4 after the face lift maybe they will have big problem in sales (just like 998 to 999).
Except if the creator is the MAGICIAN MASSIMO TAMBURINI !!!!!!!!!!
Then all we'll go to our bank for a new consumer loan.

My dealer seems to think no changes to the F4, but I'm not so sure. The UK Importer tells me that there will be changes, like traction control etc in 2008. Best wait, thats what I'm doing.
