And saw the black F4 1000R and have to saw what a beauty and if I was to upgrade to the R it would be a black one in a heart beat. I have the 05 in red and silver and wouldn't give that up to the new red oneThey had a red and silver 1000R and a 312 in red. . There is just someting with not having the MV AGUSTA lettering in blue. The other interesting thing is the 312 and the red R are two different reds. One is a nice rich red and to me the other looked like it was left out in the sun.
