Hey guys

Just want some feedback. If you could buy a tamburini or new 2011 f4 RR which would you buy?

I'm a Aussie so our pricing is different to you guys in the USA. But the tambo I could get for 60k it's done 2000km or a new f4 RR 2011 for 34k

Cheers
Sam

Hi Sam

I've always wanted a Tamburini but of course the new RR is a newer much more technically superior bike. I think it's got to be down to your personal choice. If you are looking at investment/resale values, the Tambo might be a better bet but they do seem to charge high prices in Oz though.:wtf: For Au $60k I'd be wanting a 0 miles Tambo. The RR (on the figures you've quoted) is nearly half the price, you could buy that and add some serious bling and still not be anywhere near the purchase price of the Tambo.There is one advertised in the UK at the mo for a few thousand pounds less than the one you are talking about and that's still too expensive for me. Yer pays yer money takes yer choice.......

The Tambo just looks real horn. And is rarer. Test ride them both. "Only a rider knows the feeling."
And $60k is cheaper than the $77k when brand new!!

For all the overseas people, the ultimate CC is listed in Aus for $185K. I saw one not long ago on ebay in the states for $50k!! Thought about bringing it over here purely for display!

MV's weren't cheap here, but they are better priced now. A Desmosedici RR was just over $100k new. Ferrari and Lambo's of the motorbike world after all?

Make a serious offer on my Tambo and I'm willing to listen! It number 007 for the late personal hero - Barry Sheene.

I have never seen a Tambo in the real, I think it is the BEST looking MV next to the first generation ....(not going there).

For me, adding a lot of money, it would be really hard to choose.

The way I look at it - Neither of these bikes will ever see the road - The Tambo will sit in my house and be drooled over, the RR will go straight to the track.
I won't hesitate to track the Tambo but it needs work to be a great track tool, but then so does the RR.

Whichever one I choose would leave me with massive regrets.
:ahhh:

Pick what you want, and can afford - and good luck looking back as you ride away.

Thanks for the feedback gents. If I decide on buying the tambo it Definatley won't stay in the garage and I will ride it all the time. The only thing that's holding me back is the new engine, oh ins suspension, brembo braked on the new RR and the tambo is already 6 yrs old with no warranty even though it looks better than all bikes ever made . It's a hard choice

Minime pm the details on yournbike km etc thanks for giving me a chance to offer you a price

I had a Tambo. It is, without a doubt, the most lovely piece of motorcycle art I've ever seen. I simply could not keep my eyes off it.

I rode mine, not alot, but enough. It ran flawlessly and I never had problem one with it. As for performance it might be an older bike but for me it was way more than I needed or used. Never even had the throttle wide open it was so hairy. Keep in mind I'm an old coot and my mind/reactions ain't what they used to be.

If I had to make the choice I would not hesitate to buy the Tambo over anything else MV makes or made. Right now today. Period.

If you can get one for 75-80% of what they went for new and it's in tit shape then were it me I'd jump on it.

The only down side I found to it was due to that fact it's the ne plus ultra of MV's I worried alot about goobering it. Even a little scratch would have driven me nuts. So if you're like that get a newer beater. They're all beaters compared to the Tambo.

Right Gary/Jenni?

no doubt, the best choice is the Tamburini. A real mv! Tamburini is a ride with the king's choice !

Here are the numbers (wikipedia)

The Tambo has 113Nm @ 9200 rpm with 173ps @11,750rpm
The F4RR has 114Nm @9200 rpm with 201ps @13,400rpm

The Tambo and the F4RR has nearly identical torque numbers and in real world use this is more important than horsepower at peak rpm.

Personally I've only redline the Tambo once just to see how it feels. She is an animal!!

You don't need to cane the crap out of the Tambo motor as it has so much usable torque down low for road use.

BTW - New evolution models of the RR will continue to be made but MV will never make another Tambo.
