Featured Listing: 2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna #222

The fanboys will tell you that the MV Agusta F4 created a warp in the sportbike space-time continuum. With serious power developed with the help of Ferrari racing engineers and overall design courtesy of the Cagiva Research Center and legendary artist Massimo Tamburini, the limited Senna edition created a rare and gorgeous motorcycle with performance and cache that stands out today. The haters simply called it a warmed over Ducati 916.

Featured Listing: 2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna #222

It is true that the rebirth of MV Agusta gave Tamburini a fresh canvas upon which to work - making the F4 the spiritual successor of the 916/996/998 lineup. The supermodel sexy bodywork is pure Tamburini, as was the single sided swingarm. But unlike Ducati twins, MV Agusta offered a clean sheet of engineering paper enroute to a 174 HP inline four cylinder screamer. Not-so-subtle touches like the four organ pipes poking out of the tail section give the F4 a character unlike any other bike.

From the seller:
This bike is like new. Always garaged and covered. No scratches. Number 222. I bought the bike 2 years ago when it had less than 100 miles. It was recommissioned with new fluids, tires, and the heavy duty water pump. Comes with original rear stand, cover and certificate. Ready to ride!

Another area where MV Agusta mimics Ducati is in the proliferation of Limited Edition models. There exist 5 exclusive variants of the F4 (each numbered and limited, naturally), not counting the mass production F4 1000S and 1000R models. The Senna takes its roots from the R model, but adds specific graphics on carbon panels, updated front (Marzzochi) and rear (Sachs) suspension, exclusive Marchesini wheels, and an upgrade to the already excellent Brembo brakes. Finally, the rider's perch was upgraded to alcantara. Notably all Senna editions (whether they be Ducati or MV Agusta) offered a percentage of the profits to support Ayrton Senna's charity looking after needy children in Brazil.

The F4 has oft been voted the most beautiful motorcycle ever developed. From the sharp front view to the flowing side panels, from the exposed rear wheel to the shotgun pipes, the F4 is a looker. And the Senna is, arguably, the best looking of the bunch. The carbon/graphite color scheme preserves the wonderful shape of the bike without the "look at me!" schemes of some of the other editions. While Senna was not known as a motorcycle racer, he was a consummate competitor with serious star power. And speaking of power, don't forget that you have 174 happy ponies on tap for the asking.

This particular bike looks to be what one would expect given the pedigree: very low miles and very well cared for. With but 526 miles on the digital clocks, this one-of-300 examples is looking for a new home. The opening ask is only $13k, with the BIN set at $16k. Those are very competitive numbers, with most Senna editions we have seen having sold in the $15k-$18k range. Check it out here before this exclusive rocket finds itself a new home. Good Luck!!

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.

MZ April 15, 2018 posted by

von Zschopau – 2005 MZ 1000ST with just 16 Miles

With everything from two-stroke racers to sidecars in their century-long repertoire, state-owned MZ ( Motorenwerke Zschopau ) went private in 1990 and was sold to Malaysian investors in 1996.  These were their salad days, with lots of new smaller-displacement models and their first original four-stroke engine for the MZ1000S.  This ST variant has the S frame and is tuned for more torque, but more importantly was dealer-owned and on display since new.

2005 MZ 1000ST for sale on eBay

Sometimes known as MuZ, the company designed a 998cc parallel twin for their new machine, in sport touring tune showing 117 hp and 71 ft.-lbs. torque.  Components were up to date with Marzocchi forks, Sachs monoshock, and Nissin brakes.  The twin spar frame is a double-tube design similar to the Aprilia Falco, but this time in chrome-moly steel.  The angular fairing knifes through the air with a slightly bug-eyed expression up front.

A few thousand NOS parts flying in formation, this MZ has never been registered, and is seemingly undamaged by years of display and storage.  It's a bit monochromatic in silver, gray and black but in staggering condition.  Luggage was part of the original package but is not pictured, either way it can stay on the shelf.  From the eBay auction:

This bike is in essentially brand new condition. Being sold by a former MZ motorcycle dealer. This bike was kept as a show / display bike. It has been regularly maintained, washed and only ridden from the store to the owners home and around the dealership. It has approximately 16 miles on it. Its never been tagged and has been stored in a climate controlled environment. It was started recently and fired right up, the battery is still great, tires are excellent, seat is in like new condition. Shows very minimal sign of age considering it is 13 years old. There is some slight rust on the rear side of the exhaust, see pictures. This should come off with some elbow grease. 

MZ was unconstrained by years in the liter-bike market and the 1000S reviewed as a fresh look at some issues, the twin compact if not underweight.  The company battled the demons of international trade until 2009 and tried but never returned to motorcycle manufacture.  For a fan of the brand or maybe Saxony, this rare example looks worth a shot...

Legalities: 2000 Aprilia RS 250

Up for grabs today is a 2000 Aprilia RS250 - the most modern of the smokers we are likely to see on RSBFS these days. Sired by Aprilia during the dying days of 250cc GP racing, the RS250 is a street bike homage of the RSW250 GP racer. Using a Suzuki-derived twin based on the successful RGV250 series, an alloy chassis developed by Benelli and top-shelf suspension components (Showa, Sachs), the RS250 is a fitting end to the dominance of two-strokes in the smaller classes.

2000 Aprilia RS250 for sale on eBay

There are two versions of the RS250 to consider; the first is as we see here - a completely street legal bike with lights, instrumentation and all the other DOT niceties needed in order to obtain a title. The second version is the one-make racing series bike, the RS250 Challenge Cup example. We see many of the Cup bikes converted to street use, with varying degrees of completion. If you are intending the bike for street use, then the recommendation is to go with a model that started life out as a street legal machine. This one fits the bill.

From the seller:
2000 Aprilia RS 250 Amazing Original condition with clear Kentucky Title. 2 owner bike that has been in private collection since 2003. All fluids just changed and carburetors cleaned and services. Bike runs and ride like new. 100% original condition with 912 miles. These RS's and getting harder and harder to find in this kind of condition. The 2000 RS 250 had 72.5 HP @11,900 RPM and dry weight was 306 lbs. This one is ready for the street or the track, be the coolest rider at your track day or smoke those 600's on the back roads! It is in almost flawless condition with only 2 small spider type marks on the side fairing (shown in pictures) typical with the thin fiberglass fairing Aprilia use. Bike has never been dropped or down in any way. Come with full service manual and the original RS 250 Challenge service and repair manual. Here is your chance to own one of the coolest and highest HP 2 stoke 250's made. Or just buy it and stick in in your collection! Any questions let me know, I will do my best to answer them. John 860-810-332 or email. Good luck and happy bidding!

The seller has done a good job pointing out the highlights of this particular example of the breed. 100% original condition is a nice-to-know, as many of these bikes harbor modifications in search of additional speed (at the expense of originality or reliability). Only 912 miles means that this bike has not seen a lot of use or abuse - also a good thing. The cracks noted in the gel coat are (unfortunately) common; while they do detract slightly from the value, they do not necessarily indicate any issue, nor impede functionality. The only thing missing is commentary on services completed - while two strokes do not require the same care as a four stroke, seals do need to be tested due to age. A savvy buyer might figure on a bleed down test (at minimum) to ensure everything is healthy. Otherwise, well done by the seller.

Question for the Aprilia experts: The silencers on this one look suspiciously like Arrow units. Did these bikes come stock with something other than the brushed aluminum silencers, or have these been added after the fact?

This auction is pretty hot right now, with bidding above $8k and what looks like much more to come. These bikes are indeed becoming more rare as the world moves on to cleaner sources of motivation, and a good, stock RS250 is something that is only going to go up in value. Check it out here, and be sure and drop us a Comment. Have you owned or ridden a RS250? Share your thoughts and experiences. Good luck!!

Hungary for action: 2002 Aprilia RS250

For Sale: 2002 Aprilia RS250 in Hungary

After whiffing on my XR1000 post (I *still* think those bikes are rare, but I concede the sporting nature is a bit lacking), I was determined to find something rare, cool, fast and desirable - who would have guessed that my search would take me to Hungary? Yet located in that post-Eastern Bloc country is this fantastic Ape RS250, which is certainly the antithesis of the aforementioned XR.

In case you have not been paying attention, the RS250 and its variants have been posted here on RSBFS many times (search RSBFS for Aprilia RS250). Heck, even the Boss man rides one! If this bike can't pull me out of my XR funk, then I'm not sure what can.

Powered by a Suzuki-derived 90 degree v-twin, this 250cc two stroke smoker is bolted to a thin-walled aluminum chassis complete with trick banana swingarm. Beefy Showa forks and Sachs rear shock handle suspension duties, and the whole package stops via a trio of Brembo discs. The RS250 was manufactured between 1995 - 2002, but none were imported for road use in the United States. We do see quite a few Cup bikes and track-day only bikes from time to time, and I can only imagine that it might be less expensive for North American enthusiasts to wait for one of those to come through rather than importing from Hungary. Be that as it may....

From the seller:
Aprilia RS250 2002 for sale from original owner in mint condition.

Here is the story what I want to share with you how did I get to this point since this bike was one of my dream and I have never wanted to sell it,serious.
The bike was purchased by me in 2002 Padova,Italy from Aprilia dealer as brandnew.
I put 2500Kms on it first year then it was sitting for 3 years (started in every 3-4 months).Then I have start using it again and put an other 12000Kms in the next 3 years.
In 2009 I have opened my motorcycle shop and service and I had no time to ride it.Now we're on baby project so it looks like this bike needs a friendly new home.
The bike was always garage kept at room temperature,now she is sitting in my showroom covered.
This bike was serviced in every 4000Km along to the factory manual by me.First 1000Km it was running on AGIP Racing 100% syn. after that I have allways used Motul 710 (600).In colder season I was using NGK BR8ECM sparkplugs in hot BR9ECM.There is Motul Transoil 10W-40 100% and Prolong gearbox additives in the trany (made it very smooth)and Motul Coolant in the cooling system.
During the years I have installed the following upgrades on the bike.

- GPT 3000 Series Gear Indicator
- Anodized Preload Adjuster knob on the forklegs
- Jollymoto Full Sytem Exhaust
- HELL front brake line kit
- Custom rear indicators
- Motografix Aprilia Tankpad

The following parts are negotiable for separate sale:
- Bitubo Side Mounted Adjustable Steering Damper
- Carbon Front Fender
- Carbon Rear Fender

I never had issue with the bike since I gave my best allways to this Aprilia (Power Valves Cleaning,Fork Oil change,etc.)
There is only a smaller scuff on the right side of the front panel when I went to close to the wall.
It was never on the track and when I have jumped on it I rode it at least 20Kms each time.
This bike needs nothing but a good carb clean and a little vake up,what I'll do to the new owner before he takes her.

The bike is located in Hungary.

If you have a line on a reputable shipper that will take care of things for you for cheap, going European might be a great way to snag one of these desirable two strokes. I'm not sure how licensing will work out (i.e. sorry Californians), but it might still be worth pursuing if you are lusting after an APE. For RSBFS fans living on the continent, this one is a much closer find than most!

This auction is underway, with an opening bid of only $3,000. There is a reserve in place and ZERO bids as of the time of this writing. As the opening ask is not out of line for the bike (especially one with tasteful mods), I'm guessing that the location is this auction's stumbling block. Tread carefully, ask lots of questions, and be sure and let us know if you happen to snag this great looking bike! Jump to the auction here.

Three 2004 MV Agusta F4 750 SPRs Available, All In The U.S.

MV Agusta SPRs #198, #184 and another unlisted number bike are all available at the same time!  Only 300 F4 SPR bikes were produced but three are currently available:

#198 Of 300

This SPR is located in San Diego, California and has 3,100 miles.  The only modification is clear indicators on the front.  Otherwise, the bike is in perfect condition and has never been dropped or damaged.  All items supplied with the bike when new appear to be included with this bike.  The asking price is $11,500.  See the bike on Craigslist here.

#184 of 300

Located in Morehead City, North Carolina is #184 with 3,775 miles.  This bike has two modifications: A ThrottleMeister and bar risers.  This bike looks to be in very good, if not perfect, cosmetic condition congruent with the mileage.  See this bike on eBay .

Number Not Listed

Located in Stamford, Connecticut is a the last SPR of the three currently available.  The seller does not list this bikes number but does state that it comes with all the extras originally included with the bike.  The photos do show a series of scratches on the right side fairing.  This bike has 2,600 miles.  See this SPR on eBay .

Phil posted #290 earlier in the month which makes four of these that have become available this month!  The SPR was the fastest and most powerful F4 when it was released.  The cosmetics are the same but the mechanics differ in these ways:

The technical staff at MV AGUSTA designed a new cylinder head, new inlet ducts, and redesigned the combustion chamber. Also thanks to the new "MAHLE" pistons, stamped and with cooling oil jets, the SPR engine reaches a stratospheric threshold of the rev limiter at 13,900rpm.

A further and significant development involved the primary transmission, now with shorter ratios, equipped with a reinforced clutch. As a demonstration of its racing spirit, the SPR comes with a close ratio gearbox whilst having a long first gear with respect to the SENNA model; this solution in conjunction with the possibility to choose three different final transmission ratios, allows one to match the motorcycle's performance to any type of track. Those of whom will use the SPR on track may further increase performance by adopting the RG3 open exhaust, available as an option.

On a vehicle conceived for such an extreme use, much attention has been directed towards weight reduction, working not only on the engine but also on many components concerning the bodywork. In fact, numerous parts in carbon fiber are evident: the front mudguard, the ignition system cover, and the upper and lower chain-guard protection.

These also feature 50mm Marzocchi forks and an adjustable Sachs shock in the back.  Any MV is special but these three are even more special being designed for owners that visit the track more than the local Starbucks™.
