c.1999 MV Agusta 750cc F4 'Serie Oro'
Frame no. ZCGF400AA4XV000225
Designed by Ducati 916 creator Massimo Tamburini and introduced at the 1998 Milan Show, the F4 has become part of MV legend. In a publicity masterstroke, the factory announced that, most unusually, production would commence with a limited edition of 300 very special F4s: the 'Serie Oro' (Gold Series). The Serie Oro's price was set at around double that of the standard F4 Strada yet every single one had been sold prior to delivery, such was the demand. That stratospheric price tag was explained by the exotic materials employed in further reducing weight. For example: the Strada's gorgeously curvaceous fairing is made of plastic whereas the Oro's is carbon-fibre; the five-spoke wheels and single-sided swinging arm - aluminium on the Strada - are magnesium on the Oro; and the rear shock is an Öhlins, replacing the Strada's Sachs unit. Plus, of course, the Oro's wealth of top-notch, gold-anodised componentry. Sold new for around 90 million Lire (approximately 42,000 today) this Serie Oro, number '225', has covered a mere 700 kilometres from new. Representing an exciting opportunity to acquire one of these exotic hand-built superbikes in virtually 'as new' condition, the machine comes with warranty booklet, instruction manual and letter of authentication signed by MV chairman, Claudio Castiglioni.
