I was serously thinking about brutale corsa, but it was already discontinued.
Then m1200s redesign (but when i saw rider rear set like in 80s kawasaki, handlebar controls in size like its coming from school bus, i sad to myself, no way im going to give my sfs and extra €€ for that.
M1200r was option but for short amount of time.
Now im waiting for v4 sfs or new brutale 4cyl. Serie oro is mental!

I love MV's, I've owned 3 of them. B41078RR, 1090RR and an 05 F4. I just wish they could get their act together with all of the fueling issues - some bikes are good some are horrible and sometimes the race pipe will fix it other times it wont, and frankly I haven't been able to find a seat comfortable enough to ride one on the street for more than about an hour.


I tried desperately to find a seat for my 1078 - bought a sargent, a corbin, and had a custom seat made - all of them failed for me and I blame the styling constraints and the design of the subframe. In comparison my SFS seat and riding position is heavenly.

I agree completly.
They are just art on two wheels, beautiful by all means.
I was in vip group in 2011, 2012 and 2015 during Milano show, most of the time i spend on mv booth. Best bikes and best girls! :)
I rode only f4r from 11'

Stock MV fueling can be an issue. Easily fixed with a Microtec from X-Bikes and a dyno tuner. I can say I have had Ducati's with crap fueling too. My S4RS has a sneeze randomly at around 2-3k. And my 1098 did as well, could not get rid of it with a Microtec and tons of dyno time. My 848 racebike sucked as well (super jerky on/off) and went with a Nemesis. Now its great.

I can deal with needing a tune vs a bike that handles wonky, and has a motor that is unusable below 3K rpm. New Ducati's are better but still not great...

No matter what you do the SF and Monster handles like shit compared to a Tuono or Brutale 1090RR.

Not hating on Ducati guys so don't flame me, Love them... Just can't figure out why they can not make a proper naked sport bike. If they could I would own one in a second.

Since we are on the topic of MV B4, prior to buying the SFS I had a 2013 1090RR. For whatever reason i never really bonded with the bike as much as most of the owners. It was a good looking bike but it didn't stir the soul.

I am glad that the SFS was my first Ducati. It just looks raw, sounds raw! There was a few months overlap in my ownership of the two bikes and I had a chance to compare them side by side. The SFS had Termis on it, so the fueling problems were solved with an ECU upgrade while the Brutale was bone stock mechanically. Being a 2013 I believe it was the last model year to have fueling concerns, which were resolved in 2014. All I can say is that I much preferred to ride the SFS.

Haha. So true especially compared to Tuono 1100 factory even in bone stock form. Tuono is just unbelievably fun to ride. Having said that, I ended up having the RSV4 cuz of the track, and keeping the SF :)


Perhaps, just perhaps... this one ?

Wow, that motocorse naked pani is spectacular. That would be $70 grand if offered from Ducati like that.

Hmmm I think that statement came out wrong, what I meant was that the Monster asks less from a rider and to me its easier to ride than the Streetfighter is. I wasnt trying to say that Streetfighter riders (me included) are somehow more skilled than other riders. I'm a pretty mediocre rider and I know it. What I really mean is that the SF takes a long time and some determination to get comfortable on it - that's all. I dont think most people get on the SF and really like it right off the bat.

(I edited that sentence in the original post)
I guess a messily 848SF is not allowed to participate in the member measuring contest? lol

When I rode a moded up SFS it was an experience I loved immediately but is was a $30,000Cdn bike at the time. It sat in the dealers show room for what seemed like years as well. I couldn’t swing it at the time.

For the record after getting my 848 SF I got a super discounted new R1 Rossi edition as a second bike added Akrapovic , then traded that for a 1199 Panigale and added a full Termi system which I loved for a time and then moved that for a 2017 1200s Multistarda added full Termi.

Content for now but the Tuono intrigues me but the average light low end and mid range grunt does not excited me as much.

The discussion about the Monster 1200R is a very interesting one. It doesn’t get the respect which is puzzling indeed. Pricey but sweet.

Gold member, you can measure your 848 member any time you want :wink2:


Don't let the comments about low and midrange on the Tuono send you away. I suppose that's all a matter of perception, for me the bike has every bit of grunt down low and at the mid of the other bikes it compares to. I know I didnt like the 1000 but the 1100 factory is a very different bike. If you are at all interested I suggest you go down to the dealer and take a ride on one. If you are coming to the ECM I'll let you take mine for a spin.

Thanks Bdoggy. The main thing keeping form any Ape at all is that there is no Ape dealership in my entire province. Closet one is Calgary two provinces away! Warranty access issues would be a huge concern. Thanks for the invite to ride yours but unlikely I’ll make ECM.

Took old the 848 yesterday for the first time this year and it is as fun as it always has been. It’s a good enough number 2 bike for me now plus I can’t swing the upgrade I would want for it now anyways. If I could I’d take the risk of getting an Ape from Blackfoot.

I had to come back and find this thread because I had the chance yesterday to ride the SFS and the TV4F back to back. And without a doubt the Tuono has better throttle response and more torque down low and in the mid than the Streetfighter S. Those older tounos weren't up to the SFS but the 1100 beats it significantly.


I love my streetfighter and think its an amazing machine but I have to be truthful to myself when something works better.


Right now I have 4 modern bikes that fit the naked bike category - Z900RS, Triumph ThruxtonS, SFS, and Tuono V4 Factory. And, if I could only keep one it would be the Tuono... 0:)

I tested the same bike and I have the same feedback. I'd add that it reminds me of a sport bike, especially when turning. I like sport nakeds where the headlamp turns with the bars. To me that's a key differentiator. I always get an initial shock out when I swap to a sport bike and the front nose/headlamp remains forward.

None of my bikes are street legal anymore, including the SFS. If I have to get a street legal bike to ride on the road, it has to be the Tuono 1100 Factory, no doubt. That V4 is just fun and reliable, also sounds awesome, can’t ask for anything more :)
