A Little Spring In Mid February: 2005 MV Agusta F4 Tamburini
The February dull drums have set in. The grass is dead, the sky is gray and there isn’t a whole lot of two wheeled eye candy out there. Last week was the first week where I didn’t find a single bike worth talking about. Let’s hope this 2005 F4 Tamburini is a sign of things to come. You know how the story goes; if a Tamburini doesn’t see it shawdow……
I have a feeling you guys know the drill by now on the special MV models. They load them up with all the goodies, wrap them in carbon fiber and only make a few hundred. Oh yeah, there was the monster price tag as well.
I love the F4’s body style but I think they might have gone to the well one too many times. I think I’m used to it and some of these limited editions don’t seem that eye catching. Having said that, I think these bikes show their true appeal in person where you can see the quality of the build.
Why do I think whore house and not high performance motorcycle when I see these seats?
You can’t turn your nose up at the quality components you find on these MV’s. I’m surprised to see the Nissin brakes. I thought all MV’s had Brembo’s.
Of course you get all the documents to prove you are one of the lucky 300 bastards that own one of these beauties. We will have to see where the reserve leads us. I’ve seen a few listed in the mid 30’s but I don’t know if they have been selling.
