Featured Listing – 2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna with 85 Miles !

Buying an exclusive commemorative, one would hope for a low-mile example. This F4 Senna has but delivery miles and has never been registered.  Its rarity is enhanced by the as-new condition.

2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna with 85 miles !

Recalling the great Formula 1 champion and benefiting his charity for children, the MV Agusta F4 Senna was first displayed in 2002, and was renewed for the 1000cc model in 2006-07.  Hard to call 174 hp "standard" but it is expected from every 998cc F4 with Weber-Marelli multi-point injection.  The suspension is equally qualified with 50mm Marzocchi forks and the Sachs monoshock with adjustments for high and low speed rebound.  No electronic nannies, but radially-mounted Serie Oro Brembo brakes, Ohlins steering damper, and Agusta's Engine Brake System ( which acts similarly to a slipper clutch ) round out the rideability aids.  Fit and finish is luxurious, the grey and black livery accented by the red frame and alacantra seat.

Never registered and only recently titled, the Senna has spent its days on display.  It looks every bit the part of a superb model which hasn't been used, in contrast with most which have a few thousand miles.  Here are the owner's comments:

Never registered, first titled at the end of 2017. The bike was purchased at a private collectors auction last year.  I have copies of the original MSO and Bill of Sale showing the original purchase price of $29,995.  Comes with original stand and cover along with an MV Agusta helmet bag.  The bike is in overall excellent condition with one small defect, it appears something fell against it while in storage for the original owner causing a scuff on the left side fairing which is very difficult to see in photos.  I highly recommend an inspection done in person.  Will help with shipping arrangements.  Own the lowest mileage example I've ever seen! Asking $18,500 but open to offers from a person who will treat this motorcycle as art like it deserves.

Agusta executive Claudio Castiglioni and Senna were friends, ensuring that the benefit to the Instituto Ayrton Senna was not just a marketing exercise.  As well as being a premium model with outstanding components, the F4 1000 starts with a superb Tamburini design, with Ferrari's assistance in the engine department.  The owner Chad asks $18,500 and welcomes offers on (716) 901-6046.

Another Senna! 2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna Edition

For Sale: 2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna Edition

Update 5.24.2012: First listed in December last year, this Senna has reappeared and with a discount of $3k to $24k buy-it-now. Links updated. -dc

We must be getting nearer to Christmas, because we just found *another* MV Agusta Senna Edition F4 for sale! It seems that we are seeing a few more of these ultra exclusive (only 300 numbered editions were created) machines lately, and that is just fine by me. In case you missed the last two, you can see them HERE and HERE.

Like most of the super-exclusive artwork we tend to drool over, this one has not seen much use. Heck, it isn't even near break-in mileage. And while I have had bikes in my garage that I did not put a lot of miles on, that was more my fault for not getting out and riding them than it was wanting to "protect" them. I don't think I would want to own someting I couldn't put mileage on - that would be a torture I just couldn't live with. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

From the seller:
The bike is in perfect condition, one owner.

The Senna Edition model, as told before, differs from the "plain Jane" MV Agusta F4 with a distinct color scheme and branding, a higher redline (raised slightly to 13,900 RPM), giving the Senna a higher top speed, upgraded suspension bits, distinct wheels, and bodywork formed in carbon fiber. All of this is topped off with an exclusive number plate on the top of the triple clamps. Proceeds from the original sales were shared with the Senna Foundation, which looks after impoverished children in Brazil.

There is not a lot of info from the seller on this bike, but the pictures show a pretty clean machine with very low miles. The auction has opened with a starting bid of $22,500, and a BIN of $27,000 (!). This might be a bit high given the last batch of Senna Editions we have seen, but after all it is Christmas!

MV Agusta November 13, 2011 posted by



The spiritual successor to the famed Ducati 916/748 series, the MV Agusta F4 burst onto the scene with instant credibility; legendary designer Massimo Tamburini penned them both. The Ducati influence is unmistakable in many aspects of the F4 design, but the chassis and engine development is all MV Agusta. Working in conjunction with Ferrari engineers, the MV Agusta team (under the Cagiva banner at the time) developed a radial valve head to help boost performance of the intended 750cc inline four cylinder powerplant.

So what does a beloved Formula 1 race car driver have to do with motorcycles? It just so happened that Claudio Castiglioni - then President of Cagiva (which was the parent company of both MV Agusta and Ducati) - was a close personal friend of Ayrton Senna. Senna was a hero in his home country of Brazil, and off the track spent vast sums of money and significant time trying to help the underpriviledged children of his homeland. The Senna Foundation was created by the driver for this express purpose, and after his death in 1994 Claudio created both Ducati and MV Agusta "Senna" editions to benefit the Senna Foundation.

So what makes a Senna Edition different than a normal F4 750? Aside from the distinct color scheme and branding, the Senna shared the basic chassis, engine and transmission from the other Evo 2 series bikes. The redline was raised slightly to 13,900, giving the Senna a higher top speed. The suspension was upgraded, the wheels were distinct, and the bodywork was formed in carbon fiber.

From the seller:


F4 750 Senna
The F4 750 Senna was also released in 2002 along with the Evo 02 model 0-60 2.9 quarter mile 10.7 @ 135. Built purely to raise money for the Instituto Ayrton Senna, a charity founded by Ayrton Senna to aid the children and young people of Brazil, the Senna was a limited production run of 300 bikes like the Oro. The Senna shared the 136 hp (101 kW) engine of the Evo 02 but with a higher redline of13900 rpm, and top speed estimated at 175 mph (282 km/h) @ 12750 rpm . The Senna also had some suspension upgrades and some carbon fiber bodywork. MSRP $24,995.

RSBFS has featured a few of these Senna branded beauties over the last couple of years (you can check out #172 HERE, #175 HERE and #184 HERE. Give us some time; I'm sure RSBFS will eventually post each of the 300 examples as they come up for sale!

The auction for #196 is on right now, and bidding has been moderate. The latest bid was up to $7,299.55 as of the time of this writing, with reserve still in place. These bikes have all gone above $15k in the past, and I would venture a guess that this one belongs up there as well. For more information and pictures, click the link and jump over to the auction. Good luck, and don't forget to tell 'em you found it on RSBFS!
