Vegas, Baby! 2010 MV Agusta F4 1000 R

Take a Ducati 916, sex it up with even racier bodywork and update the running gear, components, and motive power. What does that get you? The MV Agusta F4 1000R. Penned by the same talent that designed and developed the 916/996/998 model run for Ducati, the MV F4 is another Massimo Tamburini masterstroke. And while the master himself has left us, his gorgeous creations remain.

The launch of the F4 – originally a 750 – helped re-birth the MV Agusta brand back in 1999. The 1000cc models of the F4 line were not introduced into a ready market until 2005. Both the 750 and 1000 models were initially released as Limited Edition “Ago” models, honoring Giacomo Agostini. The standard version of the 1000cc F4 R was not released until 2007. But don’t let that “standard” or “base” moniker fool you. Good for 166 HP when originally released, sources indicate a further 20 ponies eeked out of the 998cc mill by the 2010 model year. Pair that with the 423 pound dry weight and you have the makings for some of that you-might-go-to-jail-soon type of fun.

From the seller:

Stock #:V001083
Exterior Color:RED / SILVER
Interior Color:RED / SILVER
Mileage:5,858

Such was the level of detail of MV Agusta that even the base level bikes enjoyed a high standard of components. The upside down Marzocchi fork is a full 50mm unit, and holds up the large 320mm disks and those gorgeous, radial mount Brembo calipers. Out back the single-sided swing arm is held up by a fully adjustable Sachs spring/damper unit, and is also adjustable for height. Fully electronic fuel injection with moveable air trumpets in the intake section help squeeze power from the inline four, which breathes through the often touted radial valve arrangement of four per cylinder. The exhaust system is a +2 over the original 916, shoving all four pipes under the seat in an organ pipe arrangement.

These reborn MV Agustas have always been priced at the premium end of the spectrum. They are also holding value relatively well. There are a LOT of different limited edition models and specs available, with collector pricing starting high and going up from there. With even the lowest spec F4 being very competitive with contemporary peers, the MV Agusta is a good choice for those who want to go fast and look great doing it. This example is listed as an F4 1000 R, but appears to me to be the later based model “F4.” Non standard elements appear to be the added on frame sliders as well as a tail tidy of some sort. This particular low mileage example is located in Las Vegas. Take a trip, win some money at the tables, and then ride this bad boy home. Sounds like a great vacation plan! Check out all of the details here, and Good Luck!!

From the GOAT files: 2007 Agusta F4 1000 Senna

Through a long and storied history, MV Agusta continues to redefine itself, and the legendary sporting motorcycles associated with the passion of the late Count Domenico Agusta. And while perhaps better known for racing associations with the likes of Giacomo Agostini, Mike Hailwood and John Surtees, the Senna model of the F4 holds a special place for collectors. These are rare machines with unique features not found on other models.

2007 Agusta F4 1000 Senna for sale on eBay

Ayrton Senna was inarguably one of the greatest Formula 1 drivers in the modern era. He was sadly lost in the mid-1990s, but not before he put his stamp on the 4-wheel competition, made good friends with Cagiva boss Claudio Castiglioni, and started a foundation to aid the destitute children in his native Brazil. All three of those accomplishments came together during Claudio’s involvement with Ducati in the form of the first of three Senna Limited Edition bikes starting with the 916. Fast forward to Cagiva’s ownership of MV Agusta, and again the star power of Senna retuned – with both F4 750 and F4 1000 editions. Today’s example is the last of the Senna tribute bike lineup, the brutally fast and wickedly sensuous F4 1000 R.

From the seller:
Vehicle Original VIN : ZCGAKFGM37V100587
2007 MV Agusta F4 1000 Senna
Ultra Rear Collector’s Dream & Impossibly Perfect – One of Only 65 Imported into US.

Speedart Motorsports is thrilled to present this unmolested specimen for your consideration which is an opportunity not to be missed. An engraved brass placard on the upper triple clamp identifies the bike as #243 of 300 and one of only 65 examples imported into United States. Fitted with the Arrow exhaust system and Power Commander fuel management module this is a turn key motorbike eager to display its ferocity on the chicane or as trophy exhibit of the most discriminating collection.

The majority of Senna models see little use. Most were snapped up as rare collectors to be shown in museums, artistic displays, and garages of a certain stature. Therefore, to find such an example as this 2007 model with only 1819 miles is not that astounding. But the Senna limited edition examples bring a lot of looks to the table, despite the fantastic promise of performance of the model on which they were based. With yards of carbon fiber, top-shelf components, unique Senna livery and logo, and exclusive Senna ID plate on the headstock, this F4 would look great anywhere. But to get it there will take some cash. These are not inexpensive machines at the best of times, and today’s example looks to be exquisite.

The seller is asking $32k for this beauty – which might not be all that high given the relative rarity of Senna models overall, and the F4 1000 variant especially. The seller is a Miami based dealer with good feedback, and the pictures are worth the time it takes to scroll through them. Check out all of the details here, and Good Luck!!

The Other Italian Bombshell: 2015 MV Agusta F3 800 AGO

If you were to walk around and ask people what the most beautiful motorcycle was in the world, you probably will get a majority to say the Ducati 916, and they would have a point.  But you also will get people to mention the MV Agusta F4/3 bikes.  The MV Agusta will stop you in your tracks, some might even dare to say it is a touch more modern then the Ducati.

The story of MV Agusta is one of the best in the motorcycle world.  Great passion, eccentric owners, record breaking results on the race track and that undeniable appeal of an exotic machine.

From The Seller’s eBay Listing:

RARE AND COLLECTIBLE SUPER BIKE,

#47 of 300 Built Worldwide!

This Bike is MV Augusta’s Tribute to Perhaps the Greatest Grand Prix Motorcycle Racer or all Time… Giacomo “Ago” Agostini. He was a Multi-Time Grand Prix World Champion.

-Liter Bike Performance with 600cc Weight and Handling,

-800cc,

-6-Speed Transmission with Speed Shift Feature,

-Race ABS,

MSRP $24598,

-Clear Title, Never Dropped, Never Raced,

-Fresh Service and Brand New Lithium-Ion Battery,

MV Augsta has launched a few Ago editions of their bikes over the years.  The F3 800 was limited to 300.  All hand signed by the 15 time world champion.  Wrapped in striking tricolore this is sure to turn some heads when out on the road, or displayed in a collection.  Reviews seem to always praise the 148hp bike for good road manors, amazing sound and an overall appealing package.  The Buy It Now price is about ten thousand dollars less then the original MSRP.  Not bad for a bike that has covered less then 400 miles.

Motorcycle Art: 2013 MV Agusta F4 RR

Motorcycles are many thing to many people.  Some view them purely as a form of transportation, while others reserve the riding experience for special occasions.  A select few treat them as objects of desire.  Something almost mythical in terms of appeal and performance, something that is a true piece of art.  MV Agusta adopted the phrase Motorcycle Art as part of their marketing years ago, but it really was a fitting label.  The bikes had the specifications to take on almost anything else on the market, but they had the added Italian flair and undeniably beautiful styling.  For 2013 the F4 came in three flavors, the F4, the F4 R and the F4 RR, each and upgrade on the pervious.  The F4 RR used the 998cc “short stroke” four cylinder engine.  It cranked out 201hp and could rev to 14,000 RPM.   Seen more as a rival to the BMW S1000RR then any of the Ducati offerings in period.

The F4 RR commanded a $7,500 premium over the base F4.  For that money you got variable length intakes, titanium connecting rods, forged wheels, electronically adjusted steering damper and a host of other top tier components.  This flagship model was meant to showcase what MV Agusta could do with a road bike.

From the Seller’s eBay Listing:

MV Agusta F4RR

Original owner, purchased from unique super bikes in Miami.

Serviced at Ducati Charlotte.

Everything is factory. Rare bike, I haven’t seen another for sale here on eBay or cycle trader in over a year. This is the RR model, not the R or base.

No reserve auction. Payment due within 3 days. Wire transfer or cash. Title in hand.

Opening bid of $12,999 has yet to be made on this no reserve auction.  At roughly half the original MSRP the timing might be right to add this bike to your garage.  Details are limited, but it is always appealing to purchase a motorcycle from the original owner.  A touch over 6k miles shows that the bike has been used over the years and one can assume most, if not all, of the typical Italian quirks have been worked out.  While an MV Agusta is never going to give the worry free ownership experience of the Japanese brands, it does offer an interesting alternative to a Ducati.

Little America – 2004 MV Agusta 750 Brutale America

With a nod to a previous generation’s – 750S –, MV Agusta’s America kit transformed the Brutale, at least cosmetically.  This one has low miles, great looks, and claims to be one of 70 in the nation.

2004 MV Agusta 750 Brutale America for sale on eBay

No surprise that the together design was penned by Massimo Tamburini, and made use of MV’s own F4 engine, in its original 750 form.  The engine bolts in to limit flex in the trellis chassis, which supports 49mm Showa forks and a single-sided rear with Sach shock.  MV’s signature star wheels have been uprated to Marchesini forgings, and the usual four-into-two exhaust replaced by an even lighter and shorter Arrow system.

Let’s hope the kit was dealer installed because it really is too much to list.  Limited photos will require a request for more.  Fans of the magic number will like plaque 030 of 300.  Funny the tanks wings are blue on the underside, white on top, so from low angles the bike just looks blue.  Not sure of the pictured rider is the owner, but the fork tubes seem to be pushed up through the trees an inch or so.  Comments from the eBay auction:

Very rare , 300 made world wide and only 70 sold in the USA , this is number 30 of 300 !  LOW MILES ! This bike sold new for @ $19k. The full America kit was @ $ 7500. The full America kit included Alcantara Saddle , carbon fiber – tail section , side vents , radiator shroud , instrument cover , key guard ( I added the rear fender) .  Also in the kit was special paint colors and Marchesini wheels.

In just 20 years the Brutale has been through three generations, from 675 to 1090 cc’s, and a surprising number of special editions – from the classic Oro to Starfighter Titanium.  In this kind of condition and superhero livery, the 750 America will always find a fan here.

Hooligans Holiday: MV Augusta Dragster RC SCS #70 of 350 Worldwide!

LE: Check
Low Miles: Check
Condition: As New
Bad Ass Level: It goes to 11!

2018 MV Augusta Dragster RC SCS For Sale on eBay!

Confession: I’ve been passing over this thing for a few days now, but each time I did I’d stop and admire it. In full transparency, I probably skipped over it because I wasn’t that familiar with the model and being the fat and lazy dude I am I didn’t want to jump on Mikes GoDuckYouself engine to learn about it. As fate would have it, that all changed this morning while eating my Indiana style Avocado, tomato and Sriracha toast.

I’m in love and think this is one bad ass machine!

Straight from MV’s Reparto Course (Race Department) is their hot rodded version of the MV’s 800cc Brutale. The RC Dragster gets special paint that includes go fast race stickers and a pre-installed #37 on the tank. 37 represents the number of championships MV has won over the years. The RC model comes standard with a beefier 200 rear wheel and a SC Project exhaust that when installed bumps the 3 cyclinder power from 140hp to 150hp. I wouldn’t change a thing on #70 because it already has the SC Project installed and the uglier than a Karens bad attitude rear fender removed. One of my favorite MV offerings is their Rekluse Smart Clutch System. These allow you to bang through the gears, up or down, with ease and without using the clutch. You only need the clutch when dropping out of neutral.

Check out what the seller has to say and I’ll wrap it up-

MV Agusta RC SCS
Number 70 of 350, this very special motorcycle sold new for $27,995. With 181 miles on the odometer, It has been ridden around the block a couple of times. There are no scratches or blemishes anywhere on the motorcycle. Always stored in a heated air conditioned garage.

I’d have a hard time only covering 181 miles in 3 years with a bike that looks so freaking kool!

Here’s a little clip I found on the GoDuckYouself search engine. It’s worth the few minutes of your life to check it out. I’m really digging how the 3cyl sounds through the SC Project exhaust and I’m sure you’ll agree.

Jump to eBay and let me know if it goes to 11!

Now, where did I put my mad money stash . . .

Ciao!

Rhymes with Brutale – 2008 MV Agusta Brutale 910S with just 856 miles !

When the time came for MV Agusta’s naked superbike, design legend Massimo Tamburini lent his expertise, with gorgeous result.  Today’s Brutale is the quite super 910S, with outstanding cosmetics and miniscule miles.

2008 MV Agusta 910s for sale on eBay

The Brutale began its continuing run as a 750 in 2001, and the 909cc four was the tallest engine that would fit in the chassis without a more major re-design.  Agusta’s exotic valve head and 13-to-1 compression promised superbike power – 139 hp at 12,500 rpm.  A classic chrom-moly trellis frame held oversized Marzocchi forks and Sachs monoshock.  Nissin supplied their 6-piston calipers for the 310mm front brakes.  The moderate seat height, low bars, and 408 lbs dry weight made for a smaller-feeling and quick handling package.

Evidently owned by a collector that picked up a more riderly MV, this Brutale has been kept with an eye on the future.  Finishes are new-bike clean, and no nits can really be picked.  The headers might be the only proof that  this bike was actually ridden.  Just a sampling of the detailed comments from the eBay auction :

The metallic orange color looks spectacular in the sun and contrasts nicely against the black.  The paint was just freshly waxed.  My father was an automotive painter for 40 years and he and I have restored a couple cars together so am cursed with high standards for paint.  This MV Agusta’s finish is in spectacular condition, excellent quality, and a stunning color combo.  The motorcycle is in the condition as should be expected for having traveled only 856 miles and being kept covered in a garage.  It essentially looks like a new bike and is stunning.

This Brutale has been kept in great care and been regularly maintained and ridden every year.  There are absolutely no leaks and no drips.  The forks are excellent and not leaking.  It received oil changes every year.  The battery is strong and starts the bike up easily.  The 910cc 4 cylinder engine idles smoothly, revs smoothly, and feels like it has all the 137 horsepower it should have.  The engine and exhaust sound excellent.  The intake induction sound is intoxicating !  The brakes are excellent and without issue.  The clutch is excellent and without issue.  The tires are in excellent shape.  This Brutale rides as it should.

The Brutale 910S is such a fun and flickable machine!  They weigh only 407 lbs and have plenty of low down and midrange grunt while also pull at the top end too.  The seating position is very upright and very comfortable.  The styling, excellent fit and finish, and color combo make it the type of bike that one can just sit and admire in their garage… Or in their living room!

The 910S got great reviews for every facet of its performance, with praise for the design and build quality as well.  Though the $14K MSRP was how they got there, it wasn’t a popular “feature”.  MV Agusta’s have always been over on the exclusive end of the spectrum, and the Brutale is no exception.  The exotic-ness of the ask for this Brutale could be debated, but the next owner will certainly be able to say they got something special in return.

National: 2012 MV Agusta 1090RR Brutale America

Let’s just pretend that you’ve got your Super Dave Osborne stunt costume hanging in the closet with no place to go. Or, if you’re from another generation entirely, how about some Evel Knievel stars and stripes on leather? If so, we’ve go the perfect bike for you. Boisterous and bad in a user-friendly sort of way, the Italian-born MV Agusta 1090RR Brutale in rare “America” livery is the ideal accompaniment for those fourth of July rides in full regalia.

2012 MV Agusta 1090RR Brutale America for sale on eBay

The heart of the Brutale 1090RR is the famed MV Agusta radial-valve inline four similar to what is found on the F4 series – but punched out to a larger (1078cc) size. With a sophisticated Weber-Marelli sequential multi-port fuel injection system, the aforementioned 4 valves arranged in a radial manner (thanks to Ferrari F1 team engineering) and a 13.0:1 compression ratio a rider can expect nearly 160 robust horsepower at the ready. Coupled with a chrome-moly trellis style frame and a huge aluminum rear single-sided swingarm, the Brutale strips down the essence of the F4 1000 much like the Ducati Monster stripped down the respective Supersport and Superbike models. With an upright seating position and not much bodywork to speak of, the Brutale is a standard motorcycle on steriods; a powerhouse of style and substance.

From the seller:
This is for a MV Agusta 1090 RR Brutale America.
Original Owner bike is Mint showroom condition
Extremely Rare only 7 brought into USA

Sale comes with a brand new tank to be used with ethanol. The new gas tank is worth $3500.

Everything on bike works as new . NO issues! ORIGINAL TIRES
Mint Condition NO dings dents scratches rust or corrosion .
ORIGINAL DOC ORGANISER PLUS A MV ENGINE CD AND A MV FRAME CD
THE FIRST SERVICE HAS BEEN DONE

Thank you for purchasing a really cool bike!

Say what you will about the livery, but the Captain America coloring book approach really stands out. The Brutale tends to become invisible in the more common black scheme, and even the plain white lacks any great visual panache. But this star-spangled banner approach ensures that you are seen as opposed to simply being heard. Again, match up your very best Evel or Super Dave outfit for maximum effect. As for rarity, there is no denying that for a factory paint job this ranks up there. Has anyone reading this RSBFS post ever seen one in the wild? Unfortunately rarity of color scheme on what is not exactly a hotbed of collector activity does not automagically turn this beautiful Italian supermodel into an RC30 or NR750.

There is scant time available on this auction, and with a Buy It Now just a hair shy of $12k, it remains to be seen if this very cool bike will find a new home. The market has been strong in the first quarter of this year, so it will be worth watching. Check out all of the details here, and Good Luck!!
