Really just 50 Diamantes in the US?greenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread
And does the 1+1 have less HP than the regular F4S 128hp instead of 134HP???? Why is it so hard to get a straight answer?

Yes only 50, and no, no HP difference. That's crazy...

50 of the 1+1's, or 50 including 1+1's and F4S?

Thers's a 1+1 in Minneapolis at Motoprimo. I can't possibly imagine the horsepower difference, they have identical internals.

i don't understand...my F4 1+1 has 138hp whit complete CRC exausth and eprom!!!i have proved it at wdw 2002 and many people told me:i've never see an MV like this...so i think that every MV could be better than original whit a relly good mecanic.

If it is 138Hp, how come it feels less powerful than my 998? The 998 pulls right away...the MV is like a sling shot....but not as slow as a 748 ...but since I am obeying the break in rules, I havent seen the bike over 8k RPM...and thats 2k more than I should be right now. ;) AAALLL the power has to be up top.
Is 138 the consensus?
-- shelby (firstname.lastname@example.org), January 13, 2003.
maybe its 138 raw crank claimed power. i im trying to find out the real "bhp",it's sans friction and weight and crap. i reckon it would be around 98 bhp. If you have a dyno in your kitchen, maybe we can know the truth.

Had mine (2001 F4S) tested when it had 1600 miles on it. It registered 110hp at the rear wheel. The engine really seemed to come alive after I got 2500 miles on it, so I expect that number might creep up a bit.
-- Brad Cowell (firstname.lastname@example.org), January 14, 2003.
I think rear wheel, corrected horsepower hovers around 110 for most bikes before 2002. It's supposed to be higher after the evo2 engine went into production.
At the track toward the end of the straight I'm just pulling the newer 600's, so 110 is probably close.

As far as I know, the bi-postos have the same horse power as the monos. Each time I've check MV Agusta's website the hp is the same. At the crank, 2000s had 124hp, 2001s had 127hp, and 2002+ had 137hp.
I've seens dyno tests when the MV first came out (2000 model) and they were in the 110 rear wheel range. Like what Andy said.
BTW, just got back from a 7 day R1 vacation in CA. No internet access! Am I glad to be back. :)
