Manabu Kamata of Suzuka '03 fame. Kind of a designer riding jacket. It converts.... (zips up). Like James Bond.

those actually look like silver painted stock 312 brembo wheels. would have liked to have seen a straight profile shot. never seen one non-photoshopped before.

so seeing them in person, what are your thoughts of 2010 colin?

Overall i liked them.... You can definitely tell what they are, with updated modern details. I mean, the biggest thing most people would notice is the 4 pipes, but these new ones are growing on me, seem to add more of a modern, integrated feeling.

The Edizione Finale demonstrates ánd proves the "old" F4 has the "new" F4 beat, hands down, easy.

Sorry guys, there's no dispute possible... :naughty:

wonder who has the FINAL one off the assembly line? wouldn't be this one would it? if so, needs the proper <'06 star wheels.

i've accepted that things must move on in terms of the design of the F4. glad i got my good ole evo2 though.

Good for you!

I on the other hand praise myself lucky I've got one of the final iteration of the (real...) F4 in the "real" colours: the 1078RR 312... :f4: :f4: :f4:

Couple of random updates.

1. Got my gift for going to the Model release.... was a bit late since they hadn't had time to make enough, but got it today! Billet aluminum with a kushitani leather case.






2. At moto corse, they had the new F4 there, and got to have a closer inspection. They made a point to show me that the idle changes.... when in neutral, a bit high, but when in first, it goes into a lower, meaner sound. Not sure if that is some auto-choke type thing or new, but did sound pretty nice.

The dash is quite nice. Has hazard blinkers and gear indicator which would be really nice. Again, attention to detail is great...even on the (slippery) foot pegs, little MV symbols. kinda nice.

Cool to hear it.... the LEDs on the headlight are pretty cool.


giddyup!
