How do you like your F4's? ..
Wrong person to ask, I own 5. I just cant seem to part with them.

I would have to say they would be the easiest bikes to work on. As for riding them, I love them. Street and especially track, although a little heavy compared to the D16.
The riding position is different to the Ducatis as you tend to sit in a Ducati. Where the MV you sit on the bike.
I find the pre 09 models tend to be a little lighter in the rear and not as planted as the 10+ models.
I prefer the pre 09 models but in saying that I have ordered the MV RC.
Rebuilding my Tamburini when i get spare moment. A mans gotta have a hobby.

Apart from that a great all round bike.

I have a few F4's too, one as a racebike and I managed my fastest time at Roebling Road racetrack on it even compared to my Ducati racebikes. Electrical gremlins are a weak point for the few other ones I have owned, now sold, but the current racebike has only had a few issues over the years. I also have a brand new ORO that has been in my home since new. Sometimes I think about selling it but the Tamburini design is just so beautiful it would be hard to replace

What engines are in the F4's...?
All my F4's are 1000cc.
And the type of engine in the MV Agusta are MV Agusta engines. Despite rumours they ran yamaha, suzuki, etc. engines. They have always built their own engines in house.

MV stoped making bikes around the mid 70's. They had about a 20 year break. They decided to start making bikes again and produced the F4 in 1998-99. It was a 750cc and it the shape didnt change till 2010. Heres a link for anyone interested.
