2005 F4's ?greenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread
Can anyone tell me when they release any information about the 2005 MV Agusta line? Specifically the f4's?
Im curious to how theyll differ from the 04's.
Should I wait, or pick one up this weekend?

Don't wait... From what's been leaking out of MV/Cagiva the F4 line is finished... From what everyone's been hearing on all the MV websites is that MV will no longer make the "750cc" F4 as they are concentrating all the resources on the new 1000cc F4/F5. I personally prefer the 750 over the new 1000. I believe it offers the best of both worlds. I've owned 1000cc as well as 600's before and the MV 750 is just the most balanced bike I've ever ridden... PERIOD!

the 1000 cc bike is still called the F4, the F5 was something batted around originally when talk of the litre bike first came up, but they stayed with F4, as its basically the same bike with a bigger engine.
The F4 is more than likely going to stop as the 750 version after this year, and will probably only be 1000cc, which are starting to ship now, though I think the Brutale is to continue as a 750.
To be honest, you'll just have to wait and see!

The chances are that the 05 will be exactly the same as the 04 - with perhaps recall mods that the 04 may suffer.
The thing is the 04 is still not available this weekend, so you can tick both your boxes.
Get the 04 and still wait for it......but what a wait!

Who thinks the 1000 engine will make it to the Brutale next year?

Yo! Im sticking my side with the 750F4. It is the most balanced bike you can use, best of both worlds as we always say..... But it really depends on one's personality and preference. The new models will definitely be faster and has a much improved engine than the 'ol F4's though, but not that really big significance.

I like to hear that one. I am also an owner of a F4 thinking it is a great bike. Sometimes my mind also goes to the 1000 model, so I would like hear more of that stuff. What I read in a magazin is that the new one has also more comfortable handle bars (iggitt), a higher windshield and a flatter angle of the fork ( F4 has 65,5° and 1000 has 66°). So the old F4 should have a better handling. Also I think the F4 engine is for the road not overpowered. So tell me more advantages of the old F4, and I will keep it forever.

Well, the 'ol F4 will go down in the history books as the most beautiful bike ever built! Nothing more to say more than it's heritage as the emblem of the racing industry. The old bike's paint job is also perfect compared to the MV1000's.....

First i would like to say I have a 2003 750 and just picked up my 1000 a week ago. side by side the two bikes look almost the same untill you ride them buy a 1000 and youl never ride the 750 again .

Look, next year you'll see the F4 1000 with the TTS available on the standard bike but as an option.. A study on the F3 is going on, probably a four cylinder 600 cc. More than that, I don't know..

My dealer GP motorcycles in San Diego told me that the Brutale will continue as a 750 only. He sells more bikes on the west coast than any other dealer, so he gets good information.

Chris, can you be more specific about the differences? Is the handling on both bikes the same?
