Y2K: 2000 MV Agusta F4 750

From the VERY talented pen of Massimo Tamburini - co-founder and chief designer of Bimota (including the DB1), father of the Cagiva Mito, author of the Ducati 916/748 design language and more - comes a swan song. Tamburini closed out his storied motorcycle design career with the passion to bring MV Agusta back to life. And what he created was considered by many to be the most beautiful motorcycle ever designed: the MV Agusta F4. He passed in 2014, but left behind a legacy of evocative, brilliant designs that beg to be stared at, drooled over and appreciated for decades to come.

This particular F4 appears to be a standard 750 model, which is officially known as the F4 750 S. It contains all of the great visual elements of the F4 lineup (save for the gold magnesium castings of the Oro model), but lacks the super-exclusive, limited numbers of some of the other MV Agusta models of this time. Still, it shares the fabulous inline four cylinder engine with fabled 4-valve hemi chambers, good for approximately 124 HP. Novel intake runners - dubbed the Torque Shift System (or TSS) - allow for varying lengths in the intake duct work. This high-tech solution maximizes the intake runner length for a given RPM, flattening the power curve. This is a bike that performs as well as it looks.

From the seller:
F4 MV Agusta in very good condition garage kept with good tyre

This is the type of advert that infuriates a RSBFS writer. This is a wonderful machine that looks decent. But there is so little information presented it begs several questions. The bike apparently has a touch over 9k miles on the odo, but no mention of service history, mods or other. Good to know the garage is kept with good tires, though. The seller is looking for $8,800 OBO. So stare at the pics, enjoy the apex of Tamburini's career and talent, and ask questions. This could be a fantastic bike... but some detail is lacking.

Check out the full description here, and then jump back to the Comments and share your thoughts on the F4 lineup. Which is your favorite amid the plethora of limited edition 750 models offered (Oro, Senna, SPR, Neiman Marcus, SR...)?

  • Nicest bike in the whole trailer park.

    • I’d live in a trailer if I could have bikes like this!

  • 1) Always thought the red silver color combo was the best. Can get it in 1000cc form right up through 2006.

    2) SPR version looks great too.

    3) Senna: Looks great. Still prefer the red/silver color combo.

    4) Oro: Not a fan of the gold frames though. DNK why – just rubs me the wrong way – like a gold belt buckle.

    Rode a much later 312 version in Orange County on a test drive – it was a LOT fun. Enough to make me want to get one, but I’m out of garage space. Plus the missus . . . would . . . Um . . . blow a gasket . . . if another bike mysteriously appeared in the garage without any advance explanation (like the prior 5 did)!

    • Nice list, Todd! Gotta agree with the silver and red, as it always looks classy. Now if we bump up to the bigger bikes, the 312 and the CC editions definitely make me drool!

      Spousal support is critical when it comes to collecting… you are well advised to maintain harmony – unless something *really* good comes along. 🙂

  • Ditto on the silver and red. A friend of mine had one, spent more time with the mechanic than it did him finding it. I’d love to get one but the tempremental reliability is a turn off.

  • No sale at the $8,800 Buy It Now mark. Listing has ended.
