We've just been testing MV’s brand new, and supposedly 201bhp, F4RR Corsacorta against its main rivals on road and at our speed testing track at Bruntingthorpe to which is the fastest.

Chief Road Tester Trevor Franklin, Senior Road Tester, Adam Child and guest tester and racer Steve Mercer all rode the new F4RR against the class-leading BMW S1000R and Kawasaki’s ZX-10R.

Tester Child said: "Surely the new MV with its bold quoted power will have the German and Japanese competition beaten?" 

Our detailed test aimed to find out – and came up with some surprising results, including measured top speed, acceleration, deceleration and overall road-riding experience. To find out the verdict see next week’s issue of Motorcycle News – out September 7!
