I am a trader and a biker, but definitely more biker! I can say hand on heart, the MV F4 is my most desired bike ever. I was lucky enough to take one in a deal with another bike. It had done crazy low miles, even though it was 12 years old. On the point of the age, the only way you would know it was not a new bike, is by the tiny choke dial and the fact you have the choice to turn the light on! The rest is all you top trumps parts geeks need, to battle the neigh-Sayers! The ride is special, maybe not the smooth ride of a mass produced Honda, it's better than than, and it wants you to know. Riding this bike makes you feel good, and after all, is that not what it's about. Unfortunately, the bike sold really quick :-/.
You should buy one if you can, and keep it for ever, the F4 is rolling art!
