Fore those who love figures; although not important we all love them, unfortunately the values are represented in the European way.
It seems that the F4 RR is shorter geared for circuit use and therefore slower in topspeed then the standard F4:naughty:.
You can also see the impressive aerodynamics of the standard F4, with 13% less power it is almost as fast as the BMW.

............................MV F4 RR...MV F4.....BMW
............................RR 2011.....2010....S1000RR

Measured power.....190,0....167,6....189,0
at rear wheel (HP)

Top speed (km/h)....289.......301.......305

Acceleration (sec)
0 to 100 km/h.........3,1........3,3.......3,1
0 to 140 km/h.........4,6........4,8.......4,4
0 to 200 km/h.........7,4........7,7.......6,9
0 to 250 km/h..........?........11,6......10,1

Picking up (sec)
060-100 km/h.........3,9........4,3.......3,5
100-140 km/h.........3,3........3,6.......3,3
140-180 km/h.........3,2........3,7.......3,2
150-250 km/h..........?.........10,7......8,3

Fuel consumption (l/100km)
Street......................6,6.........6,8.....5,8
Top speed................?.........13,9.....14,2

All figures are measured ones by very reliable German magazine Motorrad.

PS
FYI I ride a 2010 F4 myself and find it ridiculously fast (enough) for the road.

One of the very first things I did to my Y10 was gear it down, 520 Chain and Sprockets from EvolutionBike.
The bike's top speed is irrelevant on the street in most of America, and the lower gearing makes it better in the places you can use it. Plus mine's for the Track, so I got a whole range of 520 Sprockets.
Top Speed numbers are Fun tho. Everybody who doesnt ride bikes asks, not realizing you can just change final drive to increase it, unil wind resistance takes over.

O.K. I'm going to put the cat amongst the pigeons with this bold statement that puts may put things perspective in regards all of these top speed / power threads.
I'd rather ride on roads and tracks that look like picture on and two than three and four:

as far i know HP from engine to rear wheel should drop around 15-20hp. Means both rr is exceed 200hp.

Those BMW acceleration figures are reliable. Almost the same with wikipedia.

Wrong indication for RR power (Crackshaft instead of rear wheel)

Read the article again and gave wrong power indication for RR.

Max power for RR is 190HP at cranckshaft at 13.100 rpm (standard F4 181HP at 12.600 rpm).
Max torque for RR is 108Nm at 11.200 rpm (standard F4 is 111Nm at 9.200 rpm).

The 189HP of BMW are rear wheel ones (crackshaft = 204 HP at 13.200 rpm, 117Nm at 10.500rpm)...

BMW remains in a class of its own.

Whilst I agree with you that the fun part is all about the twisties, I'm also curious about performance figures of different bikes.

This is not from a "my bike is better than yours" point of view neither a make a choice on a particular bike due to numbers point of view - rather, an interest in the results different brands get from taking slightly different approaches to what ultimately are quite similar bikes - with respect to tyres, suspension, component layout, rider position, etc.

The numbers are not going to change my opinion on any bike, but I like to know purely due to being inquisitive.

IMHO, torque, the way that torque is delivered (midrange!) and throttle response are a lot more important than absolute, top end full throttle power figures in real world situations.

Not that 193.4 RWHP (as my late 1078RR once produced) isn't flattering to look at, but really useful? No.

Nevertheless, Reliable, High-HorsePower Motorcycles Represent advancements in Motorcycle Technology, that when combined with advancements in Electronics, Tires, Brakes, and even Safty Gear make this Generation of Sport Riders, Racers, and enthusiasts, very Lucky Indeed!

I say, BRING IT ON !
