Here is the deal. One dealers says the special APR of 5.99 on the F4R applies another says it does not. OTD the R would cost me $25,200. I have one dealer with a new 05 which he would let go for $18,700 OTD :hump: . I have wanted the R for the better rims and brakes, but is it worth the extra $6500? If I would get the R I would keep it stock. I am afraid if I got the S I would spend too much in upgrades to make it compare to the R. I know the R has 8 more ponies but can anyone tell on the butt dyno. So my two questions would be
1) Is the 5.99 APR good on the 07 R
2) Is the R worth $6500 more, since money does not grow on trees

Thanks Andrew

I would say it's not. I have an '05, and it's plenty to handle. You have to be careful keeping the front wheel down in first and second gear. I have had plenty of bikes, and this thing is powerful. The brakes leave a little to be desired, but that can be taken care of with a good set of brake pads. Two weeks ago, I did a roll on from about 30 mph with my buddy riding an '05 CBR 1RR who is 25 lbs. lighter than me and blew his doors off. I was pretty surprised. I would have a hard time justifying the extra cash for an R. Additionally, I don't think the 1000 requires any mods.

If you decide to go with the R, 5.99% is cheap money. I would do that all day.

-my two cents.

I had the same dilemma. My dealer offered 19995 on the 2006 F4S. I took the R because the dealer had the S black version only - no red/silver or blue/silver. I test rode the S and the butt dyno cannot make any difference between the S and R.

In short - 6500 more is not worth on the R. Ask the dealer to throw in a set of rims or change the rims (I am sure they would do that, Pro Italia offered me to do that). The braking probably differs a little, but at the end of the day, you can always make those upgrades yourself.
Again the 5.99% APR is speculative. I am not so sure if everyone qualifies for the low APR. Usually the APR rate hangs in the 8-10% range (unless your credit score is excellent)

Stick with the S and haggle more with the dealer. I am sure you can get the price down to $ 17900 (that was what one San Frisco dealer was offering).

I was in your same shoes. I opted for an 06. I got it for $17500.00. It was the last one the dealer had left. I had to buy out of state in Wisconson, I'm in Illinois.

I called another dealer and was told that it is 5.99% with a credit score of above 725. I am above this mark :naughty: . The left over 05 S model would qualify for the 4.99%. I will see about making a deal on switching the rims. I would like a mono and the 05 is a 1+1. I am just going to have to make a decision and bring her home :heart:

Hmm, you want a mono? How about giving the chicks a ride - I cant do that on my mono R. A biposto is always a notch better if you are chasing skirts. My 749 biposto does that job for me.

Just from a "social bonding" point of view.

Answer is hidden in your quistion. Buy what you want to buy you not gonna buy MV every year. If you look at some old threads I posted the exact same quistion but I went with R it was a simple choice for me.
Hope that helps. :guitarist

What I am looking at after talking things over with the wife (aka boss). It is only $100 difference monthly on a loan between the two after deposit. So as of now I will have them order me a red mono 07 R. For the skirt chasing thing, I am married with one son and another child due this summer :humpother . Thanks everyone for your input. I quess I just want the lastest and greatest and not want to start the mods on another bike. The plan is to keep the Mv stock and if I wanted to mod some more I will place a supercharger on the R1 just to make it overkill. If I could of taken the BST off the R1 I would of got the F4S.
Thanks Andrew

Halls has a great great great reputation with the Husqvarna folks. An example is that many wanted an oversized tank for the 610 bikes. The tank manufacturers wouldn't do it so Hall's put up the cash to make the minimum run of 100(!) so customer's could get what they needed. Great service to that community. I wish they were local to me!
