When MV Agusta bounced back from extinction after a relaunch of the legendary brand, new owner Cagiva needed something that would make some noise in the marketplace. The 750cc F4 was the result. The first 300 examples of the F4, however, were the truly special “Serie Oro” editions. Here is the good bit: When it comes to the Oro, if it looks like gold it is made of magnesium. The rest is pretty much aluminum and carbon fiber. The seller of this particular Oro, #281, has a lot to say:
From the seller:
Beautiful MV Agusta F4 Serie Oro #281, approx 3k miles, one of only 20 imported into the U.S. Ten years of development with input from Ferrari resulted in this marvel of motorcycle design bringing it to the entrance atrium of the Guggenheim Museum in NYC for it’s most widely attended “Art of the Motorcycle” exhibit. This is the first of the completely handmade resurrected brand, first of the Tamburini designed MV Agustas.
Complete carbon fiber bodywork including gas tank, exotic magnesium swing arm, rims, side plates and lower triple clamp to reduce weight by 25 lbs over standard F4, owned since new by responsible adult and stored properly indoors. Recent service($1200) includes Michelin Pilot 2 CT( I kept the original tires if you’d like) , new battery, coolant flush and replaced with Engine Ice, oil and filter change and brake fluid change. The bike runs like new, no disappointments here.
More from the seller:
Bike will include service records, original docs, red rear bike stand, bike cover, Trussardi leatherbound datebook, Serie Oro cover story Motorcyclist magazine publication. Will include like new one-piece custom leather (fits 5’9″- 5’11” , 150-165 lbs) if buy-it-now. Of all the MV’s I have owned, this brings the widest smile, the precision of the gearbox, the flawless fueling and the induction howl is intoxicating, add to that the symphony of the 4 organ pipes and you’re in riding heaven!
Serie Oro models are exclusive and expensive. We don’t see them come up all too often, which is a shame – these are great looking bikes! The upside is that most all of them are carefully protected, offer low miles and are in great shape. This one is no exception, right down to the price. Starting bid is a cool $20k – and that is just to get the party started. If you want to buy it outright, you will need to come up with a curious $39,785.
