Well, I feel the time has come to change bikes but am torn between the RSV4r factory and the F4 RR.

I've had my share my problems with my 312r over the last 2 years and have spent a lot of money on her but feel its time to update or change?

Went from a 2010 F4 to a Panigale to a RSV4 Factory. Panigale was a disaster. I loved the F4 and the Ape is a fantastic bike. Hope you can test ride both. If I had had the opportunity to test ride the Pani, I'd still have my F4.

I have owned an 07 312R, and a 10 RSV4 Factory, amongst others and now own a 12 F4RR.
I always wanted to enjoy the 312R but so much went wrong with it, I lost faith. For me the RSV4 Factory was a fantastic bike. I'm 5'8" 12.5 stone and it fitted me like a glove. Miss it hugely. However..on the road at low speeds it felt very heavy on the front and niggly, at modest speeds it felt better but still not in the groove. Going hard it was phenomenal, where it wanted to be. Build quality was superb, and I liked the looks.
For me the F4RR is a lot more tractable, thrilling at just about any speed - that sound! - and enjoyable at low and medium speeds. I feel more confident in the front. Fast and fun, but not the lunatic or grump that I found the Aprilia, so often came home tired on the Aprilia, not so the F4RR.
To each their own, both are fantastic bikes.

If you want a proper bike next get a Brutale not a F4RR :brutale:

I´ve tested BMW and Aprilia and in my opinion are at the moment the bikes to beat. The Aprilia is more suited for small rider and the BMW "one size fits all". I would buy the bike with the best deal offered.This is the reason factor speaking and buying a bike is much more than that...passion!
I sure would love to try the new F4RR!

It was the grin factor after the test ride that sealed the deal. It pulled like a train and sounded awesome :)

Congrats, It´s a nice bike to ride!
When I tested I only found the riding position bad for me, the rest a superb bike. I think they manage to correct on the 2012 model the seat position.
It´s the type of bike that only needs to add an exhaust and is ready to go.:f4:
