It was every motorcycle enthusiast's fervent hope that, having bought the rights to arguably the most famous and charismatic name in motorcycle racing history, Cagiva would not let the MV marque remain dormant for long. MV became part of the Cagiva group in 1991 and sure enough, before the decade's end its unmistakable emblem was once again adorning the flanks one of the world's most fabulous motorcycles - the F4.

Introduced to the public at the 1998 Milan Show, the F4 has already become part of MV legend. Production commenced late in 1999 at MV's new factory at Cassinetta di Biandronno, Varese, Italy.

Designed by Massimo Tamburini, creator of the Ducati 916, the F4 employs a tubular-steel trellis frame, broadly similar to the Ducati's, beneath which hangs the water-cooled double-overhead-camshaft 16-valve engine. The latter was designed by Ferrari and is unique among modern multi-cylinder motorcycle engines in so far as each cylinder's four valves are disposed radially, rather than as opposed pairs. Equipped with a state-of-the-art Weber-Marelli engine management system, this lightweight and compact power unit produces 126bhp at 13,000rpm. A cassette-type six-speed gearbox enables ratio changes to be made without splitting the engine.

Purchased by the vendor in 2007, this F4 is currently in the hands of only its third owner. All-original and having covered a mere 11,360 miles from new, it is presented in commensurately good condition, including its original tool kit and owners handbook. This bike represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire one of the most technologically interesting and attractive motorbikes of the modern era. Offered on a California Certificate of Title.
