My dealer in Madrid told me that from now there will not be more F4R for sale. Just the 312 is available rigth now as well. :hitit:

In my reflexion and my sense, the F41000R is going to be an exclusive bike, because was in stock just 1 year and no more. All F41000R owners have a short and limited version of F4, for sure. :f4:

Could be a good talking point......................not!!

"Hey mate why is it only 312cc?"
-no, it's a 1000....
"Why is it called a 312 then?"
-because that's how fast it will go...
" Have they got the numbers the wrong way around then?, it can't do 312 mph"
-No it's in Kilometers per hour-
"How fasts that in MPH then"
-I don't know-
"Have you been that fast on it mate?"
:2up: :bandit:

i don't like the white/black theme going on there..... either it's dark...or it's light..... I would like to see a pearl white/ blue version...but i guess it would be up to me to do that. I would also like to see a pearl black/red (original) version...kinda simmilar to the Mamba, just not the orange-red....or maybe black/blue would be nice..... or maybe...... :ahhh: :shocker:

What is the diference in the 312 and the f41000R. Isn't the same bike?.
Well, F41000R and F4312 looks very similar. Just stickers are different, talking about the scheme.

But in fact, if you want an F41000R rigth now, is not possible. well, may be your dealer have any of it in stock, but not for many time. :confused:

Is it a matter of the F41000R being temporarily out of stock or the factory trickling down production? That would be strange considering the R is only a few months old. I can feel a know design coming soon. I feel it in my bones. :)

That´s a good question. :f4:

Will you change your F4 if a new design arrives????

Well, it depends on price and beauty, I suppose.

I am in a quarrel. :stickpoke I like so much the F4 design, it is an "icon" in motorbikes history.

I'd sell my new born child for it. :) I think the next design will be equally as stunning if Tamburini is going to design it. I imagine it must be a challenge for him but then again, he's had 10 years to work on it.

It is not just its streamlined elegant looks or prestigious name, this time it is also a record holder - 312 km/h. To win on the track you always need more speed. This is why the production MV F4 1000 R 312 now has an evolved professional suspension system. Huge 50 mm Marzocchi forks provide all the stability that an incredibly powerful bike needs.
The forks are carbonitride treated and feature 13 compression and 22 rebound settings. The Sachs monoshock absorber has double hydraulic compression settings to deal with acceleration stress. Compression settings can relate to high speed use for tracks that have small uneven sections on the curves and for low speed handling to make shock absorption more progressive on accelerating out of a bend. The real beauty of monoshock absorbers is the fact that they offer spring preload options. To improve the gyroscopic effect of a motorbike that wants to be "Top Gun" has meant superlight forged Y- spoke aluminium Brembo wheels fitted with 190 tyres of which a full 6 inches comes in contact with the ground at the rear. It has meant Brembo brakes on the R312 with 320 mm front discs with P4/34 radial calipers. The F4 R 312 puts out over 180 CV at 12,400 rpm. This too is a record if you consider the Euro 3 limit. It is the result of painstaking development work on the 4 cylinder MV engine with special work done to the cylinder head. New 30 mm Del West titanium valves with reinforced springs were fitted and cams given redesigned raised profiles. Throttle bodies had their inner diameters increased from 46 to 48 mm and longer intake horns were fitted. All this provided an increase of 8 CV "sweetened" by the Magneti Marelli 5 SM Eprom Flash Memory CPU that not only manages the power output but the EBS (Engine Brake System) too. This anti-bounce system is controlled by a solenoid valve that allows the second cylinder to provide power even on deceleration with the valves closed. The only thing left to do is decide on a colour scheme to make the dream come true. There is the innovative white livery that highlights the geometric form of the machine, "Bodoni" black that leads for style and elegance and lastly, the classic MV Agusta red/silver.

I suspect that "R" sales and demand has not gone the way MV hoped it would, maybe people are getting fed up with the same bike and lots of different versions etc.
You don't have to call the bike a different name because it has a different set of exhaust valves you know! I think maybe the F4 although still probably (read definately) the best looking bike out there, many may feel it is getting slightly long in the tooth, there are a fair few readers here who have said they would not swap their "S" for the "R" version, I think this is an attempt by MV to stretch sales out slightly untill the new model arrives :blah:
