MV Agusta 750 cm3 F4 « Serie Oro » 1999
Frame no. ZCGF400AAXV000060
• Modèle repère chez MV Agusta
• Vendue neuve en Italie
• 30 km parcourus au total
• A immatriculer

Conçue par le créateur de la Ducati 916, Massimo Tamburini, et introduite au Salon de Milan 1998, la F4 est entrée dans la légende de MV. Par un coup publicitaire génial, l'usine annonça que, contrairement aux usages, la production commencerait par une série de F4 limitée à 300 exemplaires, la « Serie Oro ». Le prix d'une Serie Oro était fixé à près du double de celui de la F4 Strada standard, mais la demande fut telle que toutes les motos furent vendues avant les premières livraisons. Ce prix astronomique s'expliquait par l'emploi de matériaux coûteux pour gagner encore du poids. Par exemple, le carénage aux lignes somptueuses de la Strada est en fibre de verre alors que celui de l'Oro est en fibre de carbone, les roues à cinq bâtons et le monobras oscillant en aluminium sur la Strada sont en magnésium sur l'Oro et le combiné amortisseur arrière est un Öhlins tandis que celui de la Strada est un Sachs. Sans parler de la qualité des composants anodisés or de l'Oro.

Vendue neuve autour de 90 millions de lires (environ €42 000 aujourd'hui), cette Serie Oro numéro 060 n'a parcouru que les 30 km de l'essai initial. Occasion exceptionnelle d'acquérir une de ces super motos construites manuellement dans un état effectivement « comme neuf », la machine est accompagnée d'une déclaration de conformité (homologation), du bon de livraison original et de deux clés de contact.

    1999 MV Agusta 750cc F4 'Serie Oro'
    Frame no. ZCGF400AAXV000060
    .



    • Landmark MV Agusta model
    • Delivered new in Italy
    • 30 kilometres from new
    • Unregistered

    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 '060', has covered a mere 30 'test' kilometres from new. Representing an exciting opportunity to acquire one of these exotic hand-built superbikes in effectively 'as new' condition, the machine comes with factory Declaration of Conformity (homologation), the original delivery note and two ignition keys.
