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. The limited edition Serie Oro models were built to mark the 1991 re-launch of the MV Agusta brand by the Castiglioni brothers of Cagiva fame - the F4 was created by Massimo Tamburini, designer of Ducati's iconic 916, at the Cagiva Research Center (CRC) - and although they were priced at twice that of the standard F4 Strada, every single one had been sold prior to delivery, such was the demand. The F4 750 four-cylinder DOHC, radial valve motor at precisely 749.5cc offered 126bhp – over 100 at the rear wheel) at 13,300rpm taking the bike to a top speed estimated at 170mph. Seriously beautiful, of course, but seriously fast too. Many parts such as the swing arm, frame side plates and wheels were made from magnesium, protective-coated in a gold finish, hence Serie Oro. All painted parts, such as the fairing, seat cover, front fender and even the fuel tank and air box are made of carbon. It was only by using these materials that the dry weight could be kept under 400lb. The custom-for-MV Showa fork has quick release axle clamps and the 6-piston (front) and 4-piston (rear) brake calipers are made by Nissin.

This MV Agusta F4 Serie Oro - # 293 of a run limited to 300 units - was imported from Holland in 2003. The first owner, a resident of the USA, took care of it through mid-2016. It graced his office for 13 years. It was never started, the mirrors and battery were never installed. The bike comes with the mirrors, all the paperwork, tools, etc. It remains in literally as new condition and because it was stored properly - usually covered - it should require only the usual safety checks should a buyer wish to run it up.

And it's likely that the opportunity to acquire a new, zero miles, Serie Oro F4 750 will never occur again!
