The 750 was a great bike no doubt, but Iam so much happier with the 1000..john said:Correct Sajan, with the exception of limited edition models like the SR and SPR. the Evo III was the last Evolution of the 750 F4, MV then concentrated on producing 1000cc versions of the F4 which is what you and I have. Sadly the 750 versions are no longer in production. If you use the search function at the top of the page and type in EVO, you will see earlier discussions on the subject.
luvtolean said:Heh, the 750 vs 1000 debate will never end.
The SPR is my first 750 (having had 600's and literbikes previously) and I see why the debate will always rage.
The 750 really does have almost as much HP as a 1000, and is almost as flickable as a 600.
I think a small manufacturer like MV made the right move going to a 1000, but I love 750's all the same.
Also, the EVO3 is up on power compared to the first models.john said:The F4 is the generic name for the current sports MV. Ferrari for the F because they helped develop the motor and 4 for 4 cylinder. The original F4 models came out in late 97 early 98 and then MV modified the bikes and added the suffix Evo II (second Evolution) in 2002? If you check the various threads on this site the precise changes have been catalogued in detail but basically the Evo models have revised engine components to produce more power. Other items like the clutch were modified too. The Evo III version is in fact very similar to the Evo II with only detail changes. Some of the other members on this site with more tech. knowledge than I have will be able to give you a better insight. Hope this helps. I see you have a F41000. The Evo relates to the 750 models.

They also revised the cooling system, going from one radiator core to 2 (or sthg like that, I forget).
They squirted oil under the pistons to help in cooling...You'll note a lot of complaints on the early 750s relate to heat production...
I believe the "EVO" nomenclature only applies to the 750 models, until they revise the 1000 models. EVO = Evoluzione
