Carbon Copy: 2006 MV Agusta F4CC

We already know the MV Agusta lineup is a pretty exclusive affair. Originally conceived as a 750cc model to re-launch the historic brand, the F4 eventually grew to 1,000cc and spawned many "Limited Edition" models. From the original 750cc Oro (like this one here), through the Neiman Marcus Edition, the Ayrton Senna tribute (both the 750 as well as the 1000), The Ago tribute, the Tamburini tribute, the Veltro Strada and Veltro Pista, The R and RR models and the 312, MV Agusta leveraged the F4 lineup with special editions of varying performance and exclusivity. The Big Daddy of them all, however, was reserved as a tribute to Claudio Castiglioni, the driving force behind the rebirth of MV Agusta. The F4CC (Claudio's initials), was the uber-rare of the street-going F4 set (although not quite as limited as the Veltro Pista racer), and the most hot-rodded of all of the factory models (including the 312). It also had the highest price tag. When new this F4CC had a MSRP sticker of $120k(!).

Utilizing the same basic architecture of the rest of the F4 1000 lineup, the CC model had some special - and significant - touches. Power was way up from base models, nearing 200 HP (and matched only by the later RR model) thanks to a bump in displacement to nearly 1,100cc, and trick titanium engine parts that include rods, valves and crank. Titanium was also used on external engine parts such as the complete exhaust; other magic metals such as magnesium were utilized for items such as engine cases and ancillary covers. This technology not only added to the HP, but detracted from the total weight of the bike. At 413 pounds, the F4CC is a lightweight beast, undercutting the entire history of the F4 lineup with the exception of the 750 Oro. Much of the light weight that is not related to the engine is due to carbon fiber; the entirety of the fairings are made of this aerospace material. The frame begins as an off the shelf F4 1000 unit, although the massive swingarm is magnesium (rather than aluminum for base models). With only 100 models in existence, the F4 performs as good as it looks - and costs as much too.

From the seller:
The 2006 MV Agusta F4CC #76 is the Enzo of motorcycles, you can't pull your eyes away, every inch of her draws you in with growing curiosity.

With only 750 miles , expect near new condition on the F4CC. The howl of the inline four through the beautiful, sculpted, titanium organ pipes is intoxicating! Winner Greenwich Concours D'Elegance

The bike comes with a cover, a full titanium racing exhaust is installed and spare stock exhaust, a Corse rear wheel stand, a matching #76 Girard-Perregaux Evo3 Laureato watch ($10,000 value), Trussardi F4CC leather jacket ($4000 value) certificate of Authenticity. The F4CC is the bike that MV Agusta President Claudio Castiglioni built for himself.

The F4CC had an MSRP of $120k, making it the most expensive production bike at the time. Only 100 F4CCs have been built with less than 20 making it stateside, and 90% of the components are made as one-off items including the fork feet, the upper steering plate, the steering damper, the brake and clutch fluid reservoir, the gear change and brake levers, the foot pegs and the side stand were all machined and hand-assembled by MV's top artisans.

There is no doubt that MV Agusta has made - and continues to make a huge statement. It's great to see them survive and thrive, and their involvement in WSBK is a aural, ear-splitting treat. Like their Italian brother, Ducati, it seems that so many of the MV Agusta Limited Edition models are fancy marketing schemes. With the F4CC, you are getting something truly special and unique to the lineup. Besides, it is hard not to fall in love the Darth Vadar blacked-out look of the bike; welcome to the dark side my friends.

This particular CC appears to be in the loving hands of a collector (given the Oro and Senna editions that share the parking area). This bike is fanatically clean, and obviously very loved. Included in the sale are both a to-die-for, numbers matching Girard-Perregaux timepiece, as well as a F4CC leather jacket. The cover for this bike is form fitting, and includes a reproduction of Claudio's freaking signature (matching the sparse paintwork on the bike). From the CNC-machined controls that are exclusive to this model to the tiny details of the cockpit, the F4CC oozes with the sort of one-upmanship that Ducati cannot deliver, save for the Desmosidici RR (almost). This is a price-is-no-object exercise that results in a glorious bit of artwork with a ferocious bark (and bite). Keep in mind that your $120k, irreplaceable, numbered-edition rocket ship comes with nearly no rider aids - if you get yourself into trouble on the F4CC, Claudio expects you to get yourself out of trouble too. Best to utilize your superior judgement lest you find yourself relying on talent alone when the bike costs the equivalent of a decent home in some parts of the country.

The problem with Limited Edition models is that they try to emulate what natural selection has done for us in the past. By artificially limiting production, the laws of supply and demand are quasi-circumvented; the payday is immediate for the manufacturer, but these models do not necessarily appreciate in the short term in the same manner for follow-on owners. These may be good investments to hold onto for a bit longer, but for now this looks to be a lot of bike and a lot of additional stuff for a pretty steep discount compared to new. Depreciation is an evil mistress, making this sub-1,000 mile missile $45k less than when parked in the showroom. Check it out here, and and then jump back to the comments and let us know your favorite MV Agusta model. Good Luck!!

Hand-Built Masterpiece: 2006 MV Agusta F4CC for Sale

2006 MV Agusta F4CC R Side Front2

The MV Agusta F4CC might at first look to be something along the lines of Ducati's endless, blinged-up "S" versions that slap on some carbon, slightly up-spec suspension, and call it a day. But the F4 "Claudio Castiglioni" is far from a paint-and-tape special edition. It is, without question, the ultimate incarnation of the first-generation F4 and incorporates the very best parts, cost no object.

It's basically what you'd do to your own F4, given an unlimited budget.

2006 MV Agusta F4CC L Side Rear

Priced at a shocking $120,000 new in 2006, the bike looks basically the same as a stock F4, but 90% of the parts are handmade and constructed from better, lighter material wherever possible: the gearbox housing is magnesium, as are the frame sideplates and swingarm. Everything that can be made from carbon fiber is made from carbon fiber. Even the little vent mesh inserts are made from titanium instead of steel. All that attention to detail, while it will be overlooked by 99.9% of riders, costs money. Lots and lots of money.

2006 MV Agusta F4CC Rear Suspension

Inside, the engine featured a slipper clutch unique to this model that replaced MV's unconventional system that held open valves on one cylinder to keep the rear wheel from hopping across the pavement on corner entry. Boosted to 1078cc and making 163.7rwhp the wailing inline-four is likely very close to the 200hp claimed by MV at the crank.

From the original eBay listing: 2006 MV Agusta F4CC for Sale

This is a collector grade vehicle in stunning condition which can be enjoyed in the saddle or on a pedestal, it's up to you to decide, but rest assured, at this highly depreciated cost, the value can only head one direction.

With only 198 miles , expect near  new condition on the F4CC. The howl of the inline four through the beautiful, sculpted, titanium organ pipes is intoxicating!

The bike comes with a cover, a  full titanium racing exhaust is installed and spare stock exhaust, a Corse rear wheel stand, disassembled shipping crate and a matching #76 Girard-Perregaux Evo3 Laureato watch ($10,000 value), Trussardi F4CC leather jacket  ($4000 value) certificate of Authenticity. The F4CC is the bike that MV Agusta President Claudio Castiglioni built for himself. 

The F4CC had an MSRP of $120k, making it the most expensive production bike at the time. Only 100 F4CCs have been built with less than 20 making it stateside.

2006 MV Agusta F4CC L Side

The increased displacement makes it ineligible for most forms of racing, but you probably wouldn't want to track this anyway: even if you can afford to buy a $120,000 motorcycle, insurance generally doesn't cover on-track mishaps, so you're on your own if you take a tumble. "If you can't afford to crash it, you can't afford to track it."

2006 MV Agusta F4CC Footpeg

So most of these have simply become collectors items, a true shame considering the potential contained in the bike. While the CC certainly commands a premium on the used market, they aren't selling anywhere near the $120,000 list price. They do come up from time-to-time, with asking prices in the $50-$60k range, so this seems in line with current values. A lot of money for a bike, but maybe a small price to pay for one of the most beautiful, and beautifully detailed motorcycles of modern times.

More Miles Wanted: 2006 MV Agusta F4 CC with 72 miles

F4CC_1a

Somewhere in Florida, a '06 MV Agusta F4 CC is crying silently on a showroom floor. Like a greyhound in a crate, a F1 car in LA traffic jam, a or dolphin in a goldfish bowl, this is just wrong. Sure it is pretty to look at...but it was made to MOVE! Unfortunately, with the rarity and expense of the CC model, it is likely to be purchased as a work of art and simply parked once again. The "CC" in the naming stands for Claudio Castiglioni, who was running the rebirth of MV Agusta (having already saved Cagiva/Ducati, Husqvarna, and a solid attempt with Moto Morini). Sadly, Claudio passed in 2011, which might elevate the value of these models even further. The CC model F4 is based on the R spec engine, and was produced to a grand total of 100 units. These are coveted bikes and represent the very best in motorcycle design, manufacture, and marketing. The CC was also frightfully expensive, topping the MV range and prompting the New York Times to proclaim it "a motorcycle for moguls." It was so exclusive it came with a Girard-Perregaux watch included as part of the purchase. Consider this your 'half off' sale opportunity!

Peter Fonda’s MV Agusta F4CC #21 available in California

2006 MV Agusta F4CC for sale

The ultimate iteration of the F4 at the time, the F4CC was created to be a rolling piece of motorcycle artwork (it even says so on the decals). The CC stands for the father of this machine, Claudio Castiglioni, when he was managing director at MV Agusta. "I decided to put my name to this bike as I originally dreamed of it for myself" is how he described his vision. While it's roots can be traced to the F4R, it is completely retooled with custom, hand made parts from the racing division including a massaged motor, carbon fiber bodywork, and beautifully made pegs, levers, other fixtures. With a MSRP when new of $120k, this one has an opening bid of $65k with no takers as of this writing. Hat tip to Daren for the spot!

2006 MV Agusta F4CC for sale on eBay

from the seller:

2006 MV Agusta F4 CC miles. Number 21 of 100 built. This one was purchased and ridden by iconic American actor and motorcyclist Peter Fonda. 2202 miles with presentation book, certificate of authenticity, rear stand, cover, standard and Corse exhaust. New these motorcycles carried a price of $120,000. Created by Claudio Castiglione as a response to the 1500 production run Ducati D16RR, no expense was spared in materials or craftsmanship. Details like using titanium for screens in the fairing openings abound.

Includes the Limited Edition MV Agusta F4-CC Laureato Chronograph by Girard Perregaux #21 of 100. Estimated value of time piece alone is $18,000

Though he's known to motorcyclists for riding a Harley chopper in "Easy Rider" and in the process making millions of guys want to buy bikes and ride across America, Peter has always been a European motorcycle fan having owned several MVs and BMWs over the years.

His CC was purchased from Pro Italia Motors with the assistance of the distributor of MV in America Larry and Eraldo Ferraci. This particular bike, #21, was featured at the Art of the Motorcycle Show at Quail Lodge in 2006 and ridden by Peter, Phil Read, Giacomo Agostini, and other notable riders on a trip from Los Angeles to Monterey.

Peter shares this about his love of MV motorcycles and the company.

"I had been aware of MV Agusta's 37 World Championships for a long time, so, when I found out they were back in the game, I bought an F4 1000, immediately. I loved that bike and rode it all around the coast and savanna of tropical Queensland, Australia. When I had wrapped the film I was shooting, down under, I auctioned the bike to support the neo-natal wing of the children's hospital in Melbourne and ordered a new one to be shipped to my ranch in Montana. Eventually, I brought the bike down to Los Angeles. However, as soon as I rode the F4 CC from LA to Half Moon Bay, near San Francisco, I knew I had to have that bike. The F4 CC was the finest motorcycle I had ever ridden, and I was able to buy that same bike. I met Claudio Castiglioni in Stressa, Italy, in 2009, and saw where the bikes were built. I met Giacomo Agostini (the number one champion rider in the world until the mid 2000's) who had also ridden that same bike. What a fantastic dance card on my CC!"

MV Agusta package deal! F4CC and F4 Serie Oro

2006 MV Agusta F4CC (#76/100) and 2000 MV Agusta F4 Serie Oro #281

If you have been looking for a way to start an awesome motorcycle collection, are a big fan of high-end Italian bikes, and have about $92k burning a hole in your pocket, then look no further than this MV Agusta F4CC and MV Serie Oro combo pack. It is essentially a buy one, get one free deal… kind of. If you use the Buy-It-Now option for the auction, then you get two bikes. Seems like too good of a deal to pass up!

It can be hard to get things accomplished here in the RSBFS office with a bunch of bike nuts when it’s the longest day of the year and sunny out. I was the first back from my ride and had these bikes sitting on my desk thanks to RSBFS super-fan Marty. Thanks! Marty puts it best when he says.

While some say the MV Agusta F4 is the greatest design ever done by Claudio Castiglioni, personally I think that honor goes to the 916/996. Sadly we will never see any more of his designs. Its been almost a year since his passing last august at the age of 64....

The F4 isnt a boy racer/thrash bike for the track, its appeal is typically more cerebral than that. Perhaps the best way for those uninitiated to the F4 is to thin of it as an iron fist in a velvet glove. If Ducati is the Ferrari of motorcycles, then perhaps MV is the maserati..

While the price seems high right now, this auction does include both a 2006 CC and a 2000 Serie Oro along with a bunch of extras so collectors take note.

Not only do you get two bikes if you use the BIN price, you also get a ton of extras that any MV collector would love to have. This includes a watch from the F4CC, jacket, rear stands, brochures, certificates of authenticity, bike covers, and even an Arai R7-RR Agostini replica helmet. There are some more things included as well. Some of which aren’t included if the F4CC sells via the standard auction and the Oro isn’t included. Be sure to check the auction and read the details carefully. There are a couple of ways the sale could play out.

Read all of the seller’s description by clicking here!

These are some seriously gorgeous and collectible bikes. You could pick these up, then maybe see if the seller wants to sell that Senna in the photos too! Just need to add an Ago and a Mamba kitted F4 and you are set! You can check out the auction here and start you collection today!

New In The Crate (If You Want It): 2006 MV Agusta F4CC R.I.P. Claudio Castiglioni

New In The Crate (If You Want It):  2006 MV Agusta F4CC  R.I.P.  Claudio Castiglioni

The man who brought Ducati back from the brink, MV back from the dead and put his initials on this bike has passed away.  Claudio Castiglioni apparently had been ill in Italy for a short time.  Hopefully MV Agusta has someone with the will and foresight to lead the company well into the future.

 

This MV has been babied to above Bimota standards.  It hasn't turned a wheel on the street and he has the watch, the cover and even  the crate if you'd like it!  You may remember the original MSRP was 120,000 cool ones.  This one is being offered at $55,000 OBO.  He already has an offer but I don't think he will go for my offer of two helmets and a case of Motul.

Nice!  I've never noticed that detail work before.  You are buying art as much as a motorcycle.

Pretty but not as sexy as some of the rear sets Bimota has designed.

Are you going to be the one to cut the tag off of it?  I totally understand collecting bikes but this might be a bit over the top.

The info:

2006 MV Agusta F4 CC ( Claudio Castiglioni ) #79 of 100. Incredible 200hp Carbon Fiber, over 90 additional special manufacturers improvements, Brembo monoblock calipers, Titanium valves, lightweight magnesium components, comes with mounted full titanium exhaust, rear stand, Signature bike cover, complete spare exhaust. 20 month balance on manufacturers warranty. Original crate available but shipper may charge extra, Huge savings off $120k MSRP.

Most exclusive of final Tamburini ( of Ducati fame ) designed MV Agustas

Also, comes with Girard Perregaux Special Edition #79 of 100 MV Agusta F4CC Laureato Evo 3 watch.

Winner 2011 Greenwich Concours d'Elegance Best Motorcycle- Post 1970
