Used as Intended: 2013 MV Agusta F4-RR

The seller of this 2013 MV Agusta F4-RR seems to know little about its history or provenance, but it appears to have been mostly for track use up to this point, and sports a monoposto tail section devoid of taillights or provisions for license plates. The ad says the bike has a clear title, but the dealer isn't standing behind it as a street bike.

That said, MV Agusta F4-RRs are scarce as dog feathers, so if the numbers come back clean it's still a worthy grab for someone. The RR version of MV's mighty F4 wears Brembo M50 monobloc brakes, cast aluminum wheels, Ohlins electronically adjustable suspension and switchable engine maps. Oh, and it pushes out around 200 horsepower that carts around not much more than 420 pounds.

Featured Listing: 2007 MV Agusta F4 1000 Senna

To those of you who hang around this site enough, the MV Agusta F4 Senna should be a pretty familiar sight. We've covered a few of them this year, and breathlessly deliver the spec sheet and production numbers every time we get the chance. This example is number 87 of the total run of 300, and has covered about 7,500 miles over its life.

Though it is now approaching its 11th year, the Senna is based on the F4 1000R of the same era, which means you get tons of modern conveniences, including a trick engine braking assist system, smoothed-out powerband and mod cons like radial Brembos and adjustable suspension. Oh, and 174 horses from the 1,000cc inline four.

The Senna edition, named for MV designer Massimo Tamburini's good friend and F1 world champion Ayrton Senna, gets special paint and bodywork, Marchesini wheels, and an Alcantara seat to boot.

From the seller:

["For Sale - baby coming - literally!

2007 MV Augusta F4 1000 Senna.

Remarkably rare and clean.

Certified #087/300

7300 miles.

Lots of carbon fiber.

Priced to sell.

Threw on some Super Corsa race takeoffs so I could go knock the dust off. The stock tires were old and unridable. Personally I prefer the Super Corsa, it feels way better! But I can change the tires to what you prefer.

It's pretty obvious the bike has never been on a track.

You read that right, if you want to be old-fashioned and do things with Long Green, that's perfectly fine, but you will get a discount if you plan to pay in Bitcoin. In today's money, one Bitcoin is roughly $15,000, though analysts predict the cryptocurrency could fluctuate between $6,500 and $22,000 per in 2018.

MotoAmericana: 2013 MV Agusta F3 SuperSport Race Bike

In the annals of US-based motorcycle motorsports, we are in a rare period of ascension. Driven by the goal of delivering US talent onto Europe's doorstep for inclusion in WSBK and MotoGP championships, MotoAmerica has one of America's top pilots at the corporate helm: Wayne Rainey. Today's bike comes from the MotoAmerica series, and is itself a stepping-stone to the bigger classes in the US. Open to 636cc four cylinder bikes, 675cc three cylinder bikes or 750cc twins, the SuperStock category allows for some minor internal and suspension mods (along with a minimum weight) to align with FIM Supersport regulations (check out MotoAmerica). This 2013 MV Agusta F3 has been a championship contender from an established race team, and hosts a variety of upgrades over a stock example. If you want to rip some serious lap times at your next track day event, you might want to read on. I'll let to the seller pick up the narrative:

Bike has been serviced meticulously by professionals, and the bike has been used for less than 250 miles since it's last complete service.

It runs PERFECTLY and has 2 custom maps; 1 for premium, 1 for race gas.


More from the seller:
Obviously the bike is used, it was raced in the 2015 MotoAmerica Championship by Javelin Broderick, and only suffered 2 crashes, both of which resulted in minor damage which was professionally repaired and the bike was put back into use throughout the year's remaining racing activities without any negative incidents. Overall Condition is that of an authentic racebike that's 100% ready to roll onto the starting grid and race again. She would look perfectly at home in World Super Sport, the paint is great, there are very few chips/scratches/cracks, and the bike has been fully torn down and rebuilt after it's race season before becoming my personal track bike for the past 2 seasons. The bike needs nothing, jump on it and ride. This was our "B" bike during the season, so she has low miles (1649), and an ultra-fresh engine!

More from the seller:
Why am I selling? I own BellissiMoto, America's premier exotic Motorcycle, Parts, Gear, and Accessories store, but I also have about 25 bikes (3 track/race only bikes already) in my personal collection and it's time to clear out some of the bikes I just don't ride enough.

More from the seller:
It was purchased directly from MV Agusta's Racing Director (Bruce M.), and CEO (Helen V.) under a special arrangement for the race season. Original bill of sale from MV Agusta to me is included, this bike is not stolen, and it is not an unusual or strange purchase arrangement for a professional race bike / team, as the manufacturers shield themselves from the potential liability of having factory racebikes turned back into street bikes, etc...

This is common for collectors or racers, and if you have questions or concerns, please ask - there is nothing to hide here.

There is a huge difference between a stripped down track-day bike and a fully developed racer. Of the two, a bike contending for an established championship will nearly always be the more meticulously prepared of the two; races are won by consistent equipment as much as consistent riding skills. Here is your opportunity to either stock your man cave with one of the coolest possible MV Agustas I can think of, as the coolest bike in your next track day, or as a fantastic foundation for your foray into amateur racing (it always helps to start with a properly sorted bike). As a street bike the F3 has been lauded as a fantastic handling machine; this racer only goes to show you how close the track has come to the street in recent years. Check out this 2013 MV Agusta F3 racer here; you could not build something even close for the asking price. Good Luck!!

1 of 65 in the U.S.: 2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna 1000R

MV Agusta spat out a raft of tribute bikes based on its insane F4 1000R in the mid to late aughts, but perhaps the closest to the company's heart was the F4 1000R Senna, named for Ayrton Senna, the late three-time Formula 1 champion. Senna had been a close personal friend of Claudio Castiglioni, MV Agusta president and father of the Ducati 916 and Monster and the MV Agusta F4 and F3.

2007 MV Agusta F4 1000R Senna for  sale on eBay

The 2007 bike followed a 2002 Senna Edition F4, but was harder-edged than the previous version, and was blessed with a longer list of special suspension and go bits. Like the "standard" F4, the 2007 Senna made 174 horsepower at the crank, which was good for 0-60 in under three seconds, a high-nine-second quarter mile and a top speed within a gnat's eye of 190 mph.

Cosmetically, the bike sported the color-me-obvious grey and red paintwork bearing Senna's name, a contrasting red Alcantara seat and silver forged Marchesini wheels.

Mechanical changes include titanium nitride coating for the 50 mm Marzocchi USD fork, instead of the standard carbon nitride, the Sachs rear suspension is adjustable for high- and low-speed rebound and compression damping and braking is handled by Brembo Goldline monoblocs.

The F4 listed here is in excellent condition, as you would expect from an extremely rare and exclusive bike, and has clearly been stored inside. It has covered 4,700 miles since new, which is actually more than we would have guessed.

From the eBay listing:

The Senna is a special edition of the MV Agusta F4 1000R. With different paint, an alcantara seat, upgraded Brembo brakes, forged silver Marchesini wheels, a 50 mm titanium-nitride coated Marzocchi upside down fork, and a lightweight Sachs racing rear suspension this edition is truly special.

The 174 horsepower engine will help you get this one of 300 (only 65 brought to the US) bike moving.

Contact us with any questions. Financing and warranty available.

With three days left in the sale, the bike has not attracted any bids. Buy-It-Now is set at $25,000. Comments are open, so let us know your thoughts below.

Featured Listing: 1999 MV Agusta F4 Serie Oro

9/4/2017 Update: Significant price decrease and a live auction now underway! Links updated. -MI

The rebirth of MV Agusta in 1998 was a storied affair, a huge investment, and was centered around the introduction of the F4. The F4 was a single model that represented the direction of the new company, encompassing both style and substance. The style came from the Cagiva Research Center with legendary designer Massimo Tamburini (co-founder of Bimota and designer of the Ducati 916 series). The substance was a powerful one-two punch of history and performance. The result was phenomenal, beautiful, and utterly exclusive.

The first 300 F4s that were released worldwide were Serie Oro machines. The term "Oro" refers to the golden color of the components. But this was not mere paintwork or some marketing ploy. Instead, MV Agusta took the old-fashioned route and sculpted a bike out of unobtainium. The metal components that might be aluminum on other bikes were created in magnesium on the Oro. Magnesium is a magic material that is lighter in weight than aluminum, just as strong (or stronger in some cases), but more difficult to work with. It is an expensive, labor-intensive method to lose weight, and shows the extent of the craftsmanship that went into the launch of the F4. Components created in magnesium on the Oro include the striking wheels, frame side plates and the huge swingarm.

Exotic materials did not end with the metals. Carbon fiber usage is extensive on the Oro, including all of the painted and unpainted bodywork, the tail section and the entire gas tank. Today carbon fiber is ubiquitous - seen nearly everywhere. In 1999, this was still aerospace and F1 material, and the labor to produce these pieces was far higher than other mass production methods, including injection molded plastics (ABS) seen on many bikes of the era. The overall silhouette of the bike is familiar, yet unique. The F4 has earned many accolades as one of the most beautiful motorcycles ever produced, and it is easy to see why. It is the culmination of where Tamburini started with the Ducati 916; more aggressive in some places, yet rounder and softer in others. The MV Agusta colors of red and silver highlight the proportions wonderfully.

All was not simply style, however. For motivation, MV Agusta created an all-new 750cc powerplant. It is a 750cc inline four with DOHC, but there is much more here as well. Engaging with the engineering genius of the Ferrari F1 team, MV Agusta created a cylinder head with the valves arranged in a radial pattern for maximum airflow and combustion efficiency. To this they added electronic wizardry in the form of multipoint fuel injection and an induction discharge electronic ignition to complete the package. The organ pipe exhaust system (4-2-1-2-4) serves both as a powerful visual focal point at the back of the bike while also routing the exhaust plumbing up high out of the way, aiding in cornering clearance. The noise of an F4 at full song is beautiful music indeed.

On the chassis side, the six piston front calipers and the master cylinder were development updates from the Cagiva-Nissan partnership in 500cc GP racing. Both Pirelli and Michelin - at the behest of Tamburini - created special tires to suit the F4 model specifically. Suspension features include a MV Agusta-spec front fork built by Showa that includes quick release front axle clamps - yet another bit of attention to detail that shows the agonizing efforts MV Agusta went through to create the Oro.

From the seller:
1999 MV Agusta F4 Serie Oro
No 279/300
Mileage: 7800mi
Fantastic condition and ridden regularly. The only blemishes are a 3/16” scratch on the left side fairing (see close up fairing image) and there are some rock chips on the wheels that have been touched up (see wheel images).

7500mi service (including valve adjustment) recently completed and the rear wheel bearings were replaced as a pre-emptive measure at the same time (these are the two major maintenance items to watch out for on the early F4s).

Includes tool kit, owners manual, factory rear stand, both "gold” keys

I encourage prospective buyers to view the F4 in person if possible or ask any questions they may have via e-mail:

MV Agusta was determined to return to the sport of motorcycling where they once dominated with an effort worthy of the name. In the Oro, they succeeded in building both a very special motorcycle and one that works exceptionally well. That takes time, and tremendous finances. The rumor is that the Cagiva 500cc GP program was killed to help fund the F4 development, freeing up both cash reserves and engineering staff. That's how serious the rebirth of MV Agusta was in 1998, and that is how much effort went into creating the Oro model.

The MV Agusta Serie Oro is a rare and special machine. These bikes were frightfully expensive when new, and this immaculate example looks to be priced right in the range for a well-loved Oro today. With extremely limited numbers in the US (estimated at approximately 60), each individually numbered bike has the identification that makes it exclusive and distinctive. Looking good while going fast will never be a problem on this F4; your exclusivity is virtually guaranteed. And thanks to bikes like this Serie Oro, the legend of MV Agusta lives on.

High Velocity: 2009 MV Agusta F4 1078 312RR

Speed is nothing more than distance over time. And time, as well all know, is money. Welcome to the rare MV Agusta F4 312RR - a bike designed to go as fast as it looks. In this case the "312" stands for kilometers per hour, which is the purported top speed of this sexy Italian scooter. For those of you less versed in the devilish complexity of the metric system, that would be approximately 194 mph in USA speak. Big numbers indeed. And being an MV Agusta, you can image that those numbers are only matched by the price.

2009 MV Agusta 1078 312RR for sale on eBay

Since we have seen quite a few MV Agusta F4s as of late (click here to Search), I'll spare you the "Tamburini left Ducati to head up the Cagiva Research Center and designed the follow-on to the 916 to herald the rebirth of the famed MV Agusta brand" story. Instead, I will remind you that the original F4 models were all 750cc bikes, with the 1,000cc machines introduced a bit later. Ferrari was indeed involved in the development of the cylinder heads, and these bikes utilize Formula 1 technology in the form of the TSS - Torque Shift System - a novel design that allows for varying intake length depending on RPM and throttle setting. The 312 was a rare model, but the 2009 1,078cc version (utilizing the power plant from the F4CC) was a notch above that. This is only the mid-grade of the 312 lineup, however, as there was a very, very rare F4 1078 RR 312 Edizione Finale, offered only in 2010.

From the seller:
Very Rare 2009 Mv Agusta F4 1078 312RR in perfect condition, 2297 km not miles bike is from North Carolina and has a North Carolina Title bike is in Canada but never registered so no duty, bike is hand made in Italy engine was made by Ferrari 190 hp fast is a understatement best handing bike ever. I didn't like the original seat so a changed it to red suede looks great and feels better. Too much to say I'm selling my baby and a few others in my collection. Serious buyers please, comes with all keys books. questions please ask. bike will sell. Can arrange shipping extra fee.

Funny thing about the 312 models: Other than MV Agusta claims, I have never seen evidence that the 312 could actually achieve the stated top speed. I'm sure for such an exclusive machine that is really perfunctory - even gauche - but I would hope the claims to be true. The bike certainly looks like it is good for 190+ mph just standing still, although the pictures could be more clear. Blame another dark parking garage and crappy cell phone camera for the blur effects, but low-res imagery doesn't do the seller any favors (or this bike any justice).

The opening ask for this Federalized, DOT-approved, US imported bike (which just so happens to be currently located in Canada) is a cool $10k, with no takers. That is actually not bad money for an exclusive F4 model - especially one that has fewer than 2,500 miles on the clock. Somebody could end up with a deal here, and not even have to hassle with importation problems related to title. The auction ends very soon, so this is a time-limited opportunity. Check it out here, and then ping us back on your favorite MV Agusta model. Good luck!!
