Hello,

I am new to the MV Agusta world.

I currently own a 2013 Ducati Panigale S Tricolore.
Before the 1199 I owned a 2012 848 evo.
I have gone on the track with the 1199 and it was a good time.

Today I went to my local dealer and tested a 2012 F4R.
I fell in love right away.

Now it is safe to say that I am over Ducati as a whole.

I wanted to know what year and model is the all around best MV to buy?

I will use it for riding around town, track & group rides.

Thank you for your help! :)

I like the pre 2010 models. Have never been on the new ones. I heard the New F4RR is very nice.

I have an 07 R , but my next will be the F3 800. I think it's going to be a real cracker for the class and the current best all around MV

Wow I must try riding the 2012 F4R going by your conviction. I currently own the 2009 F4 1078 which I love to bits.. And Im lucky to have owned the 848 and S1000RR in the past.. All these bikes havedifferent characters and I kinda miss the torquey Desmo.. In fact I'm in the market for a mint condition 1098r.. Personally i haven't found one bike that trumps all..nearest to that is probably the S1000RR with full tech gadgetary, very fast and reliable. The F3 800 is tempting indeed.. But I would wait to see how MV fares in SBK and may be tempted to see if they come up with a revised F4RR.

The f4 r
For sure
The newer bikes are better for around town
Especially in Miami with the heat

What dealer unique superbikes?

The 12' F4R is better then my 13' 1199S by far.
I wish I tested the F4R before spending all that money on the Pani.

Better in what way as the tests and specs do not show that at all. If you mean you just prefer it then that's a different story

2012 F4R. I love mine and having plenty of Japanese bikes it's by far the most exhilarating bike. My next bike to add is the BMW HP4. I tested it and wow it's a beast to but a very different kind of ride from the MV. But I love it too.

The F3 800 will disappoint if you like horsepower...

The F4 is more comfortable, easier to handle off the line and on turns.
There is no dip in power in middle range RPMs like 1199.
It for some reason feels lighter? maybe they just did a better job a distributing the weight around the whole bike better then that Duc.
The sound and looks of the F4 by far trump the 1199.

I was a loyal customer of Ducati for years, after mounting the F4 I cannot believe what I have been missing out on.

Maybe because I have a panigale R and a regular F4 I have the complete opposite experience as you

I have an Panigale S and also agree with Sonny. My last F4 was the 2010 and the Panigale is much lighter and nimble while the F4 has better steering feedback and better attention to details. It's typical of every MV/Ducati combo I've had except for the 996 era bikes. The fueling on the F4 was on/off while the Panigale is softer in the mid range so you ride it like a 4 cylinder.
