100 kilometres from new
2004 MV Agusta F4 1000S
Frame no. ZCGF511BA4V001523
Arguably the only surprising thing about the original MV F4 of 1998 was that it was launched as a 750 at a time when the class was fast becoming moribund. The Japanese factories' main focus of attention had already switched to 1,000cc sports bikes but it took all of six years for MV to follow suit. Launched in 2004, the F4 1000S adhered to the same basic layout as the preceding 750, complete with radial 16-valve cylinder head, under-seat four-pipe exhaust system, six-speed cassette gearbox and tubular 'trellis' frame. Power went up to 166bhp (claimed) which meant around 150 horsepower at the rear wheel, good enough for a top speed in the region of 180mph. Wisely, MV chose not to change the F4's overall appearance, the Massimo Tamburini-designed 750 being widely acknowledged as one of the most beautiful motorcycles ever made. As usual, there were various limited edition versions available offering even higher equipment levels and extra helpings of carbon fibre. The F4 1000S offered here has covered only 100 kilometres since delivery and the machine is presented in 'like new' condition. There are no documents with this Lot.
