We rarely get the chance to post a real Oro for sale in the states but here is the real deal and with a thorough seller’s description. The auction has a starting bid of $25000 and wears a buy-it-now of $38,750. One can assume a deal can be struck somewhere in between, but if you’re in North America this might be worth your time if you’ve been waiting.
My favorite quote from the listing should resonate with a growing number of our readers, “Note, a motorcycle that is never used and kept in a crate for 12 years is not in better mechanical condition than a bike that has been used regularly and maintained properly over that same period.” Well done sir!
quote from the seller:
MV AGUSTA F4 SERIE ORO, these special bikes don’t present themselves often, highly collectible as this was the first completely hand built re-introduction of the famous brand into the market. Only 20 were imported into the United States, that’s less than 1 per state. If you had the opportunity to visit the Guggenheim museum for the most widely attended exhibit “Art of the Motorcycle” the glorious Serie Oro #1 owned by the King of Spain was the first display bike in the Atrium.
Over the years, I have owned numerous MVs, I just love the brand, reliable, beautiful to look at and what an incredible ride. I have owned #281 since 2000 and unlike most who resign it to the living room, she has been ridden by a responsible adult being maintained and stored properly over the years. She recently had full service ( 2 months ago) with fluids change, and new Michelin Power 2CT, new battery.
If you are looking at this ad, you are probably familiar with the model, but just in case, here are some details: full carbon fiber bodywork including the gas tank, Magnesium (light weight) swing arm, rims, side plates, and lower triple clamp, everything that came with this bike is included with the sale: bike cover, certificates, 2 sets of keys and red rear wheel stand, Trussardi leather-bound Datebook,Ferracci bar-risers (originals included). If buy-it-now exercised, I will also include some collectible items that did not come with the original bike including new one-piece custom leathers ( fits 5’8″-6’0″, 150-180 lbs), original Motorcyclist magazine cover article story on the Serie Oro, original brochures. These motorcycles are truly the Ferrari’s of bikes as they collaborated with MV Agusta in the engine development.
MV Agusta motorcycles are very special bikes but this one in particular, even more so, the gearbox is flawless, better than the others I have owned, the fuel injection seemless, the induction howl it makes with the musical symphony accompaniment from the quad under seat organ pipes can only be matched by the Classical greats! It’s with great hesitation that I list my first dream bike for sale, but it’s time for another lucky individual to enjoy her as I have. Good Luck!
Note, a motorcycle that is never used and kept in a crate for 12 years is not in better mechanical condition than a bike that has been used regularly and maintained properly over that same period.
