For the children: 2002 MV Agusta F4 Senna

The Senna branded Ducati and MV Agusta special editions are all about friendship. Claudio Castiglioni is the principal figure in this equation; close, personal friend of F1 legend Ayrton Senna, and the captain of the ship for both Ducati and MV Agusta when the commemorative editions were released. In total Ducati offered 3 Senna editions of the 916, while MV Agusta created a tribute edition for both the F4 750 as well as the F4 1000. All net proceeds from Senna-branded bikes profited the Instituto Ayrton Senna, Ayrton’s personal foundation to care for poor and needy children in his native Brazil. Today’s example of the rare Senna breed is a 2002 MV Agusta F4, the 750cc variant limited to just 300 units world wide.

2002 MV Augusta F4 Senna for sale on eBay

The base MV Agusta F4 750 was no slouch when introduced. As is often noted, the F4 engine was partially developed by the Ferrari Formula 1 engineering team, and featured an inline four with 16 radially splayed valves. The intake trumpets were computer controlled and adjustable for length, allowing for better control of the torque curve depending upon RPM and throttle settings. Good for 126 horsepower in base form, the Senna model utilized the EVO 2 spec motor (which was blueprinted), providing an additional 10 HP and a slightly higher redline. Other bits from the EVO 2 were utilized, including parts for the never released SPR model (note the tach). Bodywork was carbon (instead of ABS), the wheels were model specific and a number plaque was fitted to prove authenticity and exclusivity.

From the seller:
are 2002 MV Augusta F4 Senna 173/300 with 7600 miles. 1 of only 50 imported to the US and the most beautiful IMHO. Always garaged and dealer serviced. I am the second owner having purchased in 2004 and owned for 15 years. I put on 7k of those miles.

Has Senna RG3 exhaust and chip installed. Includes Senna package wheel stand, cover, extra sprockets, and owners documents. Clean history and title. Never wrecked. The bike has been enjoyed and has had a few rock dings I have treated with touch up paint.

Recently came from dealer service with new battery and all new fluids. The bike is running great and ready to be enjoyed. Tires have plenty of tread but are older, (recommend replacement) otherwise, no other flaws to report.

Senna models are rare and tick all of the right boxes: exclusivity, carbon fiber, star power, stunning looks and great go-fast parts. New these would retail at a substantial premium over the standard S model F4. Hit the fast forward selector some 17 years, and prices have dropped to a point where mere mortals can afford – but still significantly higher than base model F4s will pull in. This particular bike looks to be well cared for across the span of two owners, with service records and some great extras. The BIN on this on is $12,500, with an opening auction ask of $11,500. So that should make the price expectations pretty clear. Check it out here, as we all know the MV Agusta F4 was the design Ducati should have used for the 999. With rare Senna livery this will be a stand out bike for years to come. Good Luck!!

Legendary: 2002 MV Agusta F4 Senna 750

An MV Agusta F4 Senna 750 is enough by itself to justify a modifier like “legendary,” but this one carries around a couple extra big names to back it up. Not only does it bear the name of The Man Himself, the bike wears 10-time GP World Champion Giacomo Agostini’s signature and was first owned by NHL legend Sergei Fedorov.

2002 MV Agusta F4 Senna for sale on eBay

If you’re not a fan of the Detroit Red Wings, or you don’t remember the early 1990s, Fedorov’s name likely doesn’t mean much to you. But the dude won three Stanley Cups with the ‘Wings, after a gutsy defection to the United States after an international game. Look him up.

Setting aside the signatures and ownership of famous men, the 2002 MV Agusta Senna 750 is a force to be reckoned with. The 750cc inline four was designed with the help of Ferrari, and in the Senna managed about 140 horsepower. They’re serious machines, but there are a raft of cheaper bikes that went faster. The Senna is one you buy, because, well, look at it.

This is number 192 of a worldwide production run of 300, and it looks to be in very good shape, commensurate with its scant 3,500 miles. The pictures don’t tell us much, and the description doesn’t go into huge detail either.

From the eBay listing:

Extremely rare and beautiful. Part of a small collection of bikes purchased new by NHL Hall of Famer Sergei Fedorov. Bike has been personally signed by legendary MV Agusta rider/ champion Giacomo Agostini! This bike is number 192 of 300 built for worldwide production. MV reported that only 50 of these bikes were imported to North America. Inline 4 cylinder engine designed with cooperation from Ferrari produces 136hp at 13900 rpms. 0 – 60mph in 2.9 seconds. Quarter mile in 10.7 at 136mph. Lightweight and extremely fast. These bikes are legendary not only for performance and handling but for design and collectability!

This bike is in excellent cosmetic, running and riding condition at 3500 miles. The sale includes original owner’s manual, spare key, spark plug tool, and factory red rear wheel bike stand.

This bike is currently for sale locally as well.

With a starting bid of ten grand, and no word on the reserve, we’ll be interested to see where this one will go. Will the whiff of fame and provenance drive the value above similar bikes? Let us know what you think in the comments!

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.

1 of 65 in the U.S.: 2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna 1000R

MV Agusta spat out a raft of tribute bikes based on its insane F4 1000R in the mid to late aughts, but perhaps the closest to the company’s heart was the F4 1000R Senna, named for Ayrton Senna, the late three-time Formula 1 champion. Senna had been a close personal friend of Claudio Castiglioni, MV Agusta president and father of the Ducati 916 and Monster and the MV Agusta F4 and F3.

2007 MV Agusta F4 1000R Senna for  sale on eBay

The 2007 bike followed a 2002 Senna Edition F4, but was harder-edged than the previous version, and was blessed with a longer list of special suspension and go bits. Like the “standard” F4, the 2007 Senna made 174 horsepower at the crank, which was good for 0-60 in under three seconds, a high-nine-second quarter mile and a top speed within a gnat’s eye of 190 mph.

Cosmetically, the bike sported the color-me-obvious grey and red paintwork bearing Senna’s name, a contrasting red Alcantara seat and silver forged Marchesini wheels.

Mechanical changes include titanium nitride coating for the 50 mm Marzocchi USD fork, instead of the standard carbon nitride, the Sachs rear suspension is adjustable for high- and low-speed rebound and compression damping and braking is handled by Brembo Goldline monoblocs.

The F4 listed here is in excellent condition, as you would expect from an extremely rare and exclusive bike, and has clearly been stored inside. It has covered 4,700 miles since new, which is actually more than we would have guessed.

From the eBay listing:

The Senna is a special edition of the MV Agusta F4 1000R. With different paint, an alcantara seat, upgraded Brembo brakes, forged silver Marchesini wheels, a 50 mm titanium-nitride coated Marzocchi upside down fork, and a lightweight Sachs racing rear suspension this edition is truly special.

The 174 horsepower engine will help you get this one of 300 (only 65 brought to the US) bike moving.

Contact us with any questions. Financing and warranty available.

With three days left in the sale, the bike has not attracted any bids. Buy-It-Now is set at $25,000. Comments are open, so let us know your thoughts below.

2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna R Front

“Wait,” you’re thinking. “Aryton Senna raced cars, didn’t he?” Well, unlike most race-replicas, the MV Agusta F4 Senna was built to help support the charity named after the famous driver, instead of being built to commemorate his race successes.

2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna Front

Largely unchanged from the “regular” F4 of the time, the Senna came with a 174hp 998cc four-cylinder that had the usual exotic specifications and included very subtle grey-and-red paint along with a really snazzy alcantara seat. Of course, while there is a theoretical air-flow advantage to the bike’s much-touted radial valves, I think they’re probably a lot like Ducati’s Desmo heads: largely a great way to differentiate yourself in a crowded marketplace, rather than something that grants any sort of significant performance advantage.

2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna Snazzy Seat

It really doesn’t matter: while it was far more expensive than competing bikes from Japan and generally harder to ride, er… hard, it was certainly fast enough to keep pace, even if it was a bit more likely to break itself or the rider. It’s also one of the best-sounding four-cylinder motorcycles of all time.

2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna Clutch

The original listing is basically pointless, a cut-and-paste of the bike’s specifications, including gear ratios and speeds in each and information about the bike’s charging system, possibly the most useless information ever to anyone purchasing this motorcycle. There’s basically no information at all about this specific bike or its history, aside from the not-broken-in-yet mileage: 2,200. Luckily, the seller at least includes a number of nice pictures for us to look at.

Seriously, from the original eBay listing: 2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna #168/300

First gear: Speed 13/38 78.5 mph at 13000 r.p.m.
Second gear: Speed 16/34 108.1 mph at 13000 r.p.m.
Third gear: Speed 18/32 129.2 mph at 13000 r.p.m.
Fourth gear: Speed 20/30 153.1 mph at 13000 r.p.m.
Fifth gear: Speed 22/29 174.2 mph at 13000 r.p.m.
Sixth gear: Speed 21/25 187.0 mph at 13000 r.p.m.
Final velocity ratio: 15×40

And so on.

With just 300 made, the Senna sold new for $29,995 in 2007. A very princely sum, but at least you can be glad that a portion of your thirty large went to the Instituto Aryton Senna to aid underprivileged children in his home country of Brasil.

2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna Plaque

Eight years later, this example is selling for a cool $18,495, significantly less but still a pretty big chunk of change. Considering a very nice F4 of the non-Senna variety can be had for half that amount, this one is mostly of interest to collectors, waiting for the day these finally begin to appreciate. I’m sure they will but, for the time being all of the F4s represent a pretty serious bargain. Electronics aside, the F4 can compete with most modern machines and will look far better doing it.

Senna-sational! 2002 MV Agusta F4 Senna Edition

Bikes become collectable in a few ways: They can be iconic motorcycles that have simply survived the ravages of time and modification, they can be homologation machines built in limited numbers and destined for the racetrack, or they can be born into collectability, with a flashy name and fashionable limited number plate. This Senna Edition MV Agusta F4 is the latter, although it was created for a very good cause.

F4_Senna_3

In the event your life revolves only around two wheels and you are unknowing of any other motorsports, Ayrton Senna was a Formula 1 driver and is considered by many to be the greatest F1 pilot of the modern era (no flame wars, please). He was to four wheels what Rossi is to two. Brazilian born, Ayrton created the Instituto Ayrton Sennato help the poor and homeless children in his native country. Proceeds from the ultra expensive Senna Edition MV-A F4 were routed through that charity.

F4_Senna_4

From the seller:

YOU ARE LOOKING AT A FINE PIECE OF MOTORCYCLE EXOTICA.
THIS IS THE EXTREMELY RARE MV AGUSTA F4 SENNA
ITS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN STORED INSIDE.
THE MILEAGE IS PRETTY ACCURATE HOWEVER, IT STILL GETS RIDDEN OCCASIONALLY SO IF THERE IS A HUNDRED MILE OR SO DIFFERENCE, SO BE IT.
IT ALSO COMES WITH THE STAND AND A BIKE COVER AS WELL.
THIS IS #173 OF 300 PRODUCED WORLDWIDE.
PLEASE KNOW THAT THIS WAS RIDDEN AS A STREETBIKE SO THE PAINT SHOWS NORMAL WEAR FROM A BIKE OF ITS AGE.
IT WAS NOT A MUSEUM PIECE, BUT IS STILL IN ABSOLUTELY AMAZING CONDITION!

F4_Senna_5

Make no mistake – these Senna Edition F4s are rare bikes indeed. Similar in production numbers to the Serie Oro (300) and closer in spec to the 750 Evo 2 release, the Senna Edition was indentified by number pate on the headstock, carbon fiber bodywork and suspension upgrades. All in all, Ayton’s name was the real selling point.

F4_Senna_2

Sennas were high dollar bikes when new, and continue to hold decent resale value when we see them offered at auction. This particular bike is sitting at a mere $8,100 with reserve still in place. Past Sennas would indicate a target somewhere between $12,000 and $15,000 depeding on condition. Pictures of this bike look like they were taken through a jar of vaseline, but I would image the real thing would look even better. To check out all of the details, click the link and jump over to the auction. Think of the children!

Philadelphia, PA – 7,000mi – $17,000 BIN

 

It should be of no surprise that I bring to you this lovely MV Agusta F4. MV represents the upper range of the high-end and most advanced sport bikes on the market. In the RSBFS employee handbook, we are contractually obligated to bring you bikes that fill such categories as “limited production” and “special editions”. The F4 Senna fills both of these spots as well as being one of the best looking bikes ever.

$T2eC16FHJF0E9nmFQWI-BRNh3Fp38!~~60_3

The Senna edition of the F4 is a tribute to 3-time Forumla1 world champion Aytron Senna. Senna tragically lost his life during an F1 race, but his legacy and his foundation still live on today. This bike is not only a tribute to Senna, but also helped fund his foundation. This F4 was treated to the most advanced MV technology of the time and it’s 1000cc engine making 174hp.

$T2eC16ZHJG!E9nm3q-,+BRNh3BHoZw~~60_3

From the seller:

Time to ride again ladies and gentleman, but dont get caught out there with the same bike as 300 other riders. if it’s the sport bike you like, then it gets no better then this.

This is the Ferrari of Motorcycles, on top of that you have here the Senna addition. # 286 of only 300 made.

As long as I have owned this bike I have NOT seen another one.

This bike is in show room condition with nothing wrong. Serviced and maintained by FAST BY FERRACCI It also lives in a climate controlled building and has not seen the rain or the ground.

I am the second owner and at that time the bike had only 3400 miles on it. I have only added 4000. So you can see that this one has been babied.

I can’t begin to tell you how easy this bike handles and makes it way though the sharpest of turns.

I am selling this bike locally and reserve the right to cancel the auction at anytime.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I run my own business so please be patient with my response time

$T2eC16FHJHgE9n0yDj7,BRNh3JndyQ~~60_3

The BIN price of $17,000 is right in the ball park for these bikes. Mileage is on the high side for a lot of these types of bikes as people who buy them generally don’t ride them. Hats off to the owner for actually riding this beauty! I looks like maintenance and the care for this bike has been nothing short of complete. You can jump over to the auction here and check it out for yourself!
