Fargo: 2000 MV Agusta F4

The MV Agusta F4 750S was the mass production model of the ultra rare Oro Edition – the model that re-launched MV Agusta into the mainstream market. Designed by Massimo Tamburini and the CRC design center, the F4 was – in many ways – what the Ducati 999 should have been. It is an evolution of the very successful 916/996/998 design language that set the world alight way back in 1994, and has been incrementally improving ever since. With the single sided swing arm, distinctive under seat shotgun exhaust and star-spoke wheels, the F4 is truly distinctive in the MV Agusta colors of silver and red.

Patterned after the Oro, the 750 Strada (street) model shared the same inline, four cylinder power plant. With technology adopted from Ferrari Formula 1 engineers, the F4 utilized radially splayed valves for the ideal combustion chamber shape. Intake trumpets were variable length to help spread the torque curve over more of the power band (rather than just up at the top of the range), with horsepower peaking at 126. Whereas the Oro (gold in Italian) was produced utilizing anodized magnesium, the standard model made due with aluminum. This not only brought the cost of materials down, but also the cost of manufacturing. With plastics in place of carbon fiber for the body, the 750S model is slightly heavier than the Oro, but otherwise looks identical.

From the seller:
2000 MV Agusta F4 750 for sale with 6200 miles (still riding so may go up). Great condition, adult owned, and includes extras. The bike is mechanically perfect and is in excellent working condition. Rear tire is at 50-60% and front is at 75%. Bike comes with carbon fiber Silmoto exhaust($1000) and also the currently mounted stock Arrow exhaust that was fitted for display in a recent motorcycle show(Both exhausts pictured). Bike has been professionally dyno’d and tuned and runs very cool. As you can see by the vin this is a very early bike and was only the 18th MV F4s to come out of the factory. Also included is the factory rear stand, service manual, and all paperwork passed along from previous owner.

MV Agusta relaunched to great fanfare in 1999. Bikes were initially very exclusive, and they were also very expensive. The Oro was nearly $40,000 USD, and all 300 sold out. The standard Strada model was cheaper, but far from cheap at $18,999. Today, these bikes are trading for much, much less. The rarest of the models are sure to appreciate, with the more mass produced examples following slowly behind. That is a good thing, as it makes fantastic bikes like this F4 750S affordable to us mere mortals. This is a bike that you can ride today and decades later it will still look fresh and purposeful. Located in Fargo, North Dakota and offered with a starting bid of just $5,300, this one still has a few days to go on eBay. Check it out here, and Good Luck!!

  • lovely bikes but a bit cramped to ride and the 750 did not move it along as fast as the other 750’s of the same era.

    There were a few limited editions that came out at the same time such as the SP-01/VIper that got snapped up by collectors but this was the bread and butter model.

    NOTE: There is a recent write up in Practical sportbikes (july 2019) edition about how these faired compared to the Duc 996 and the Benelli Tornando, its a good read for anyone who isn’t familiar with these bikes.

    The only real issues with these bikes is maintenance history and also that the design is still pretty much the same since its introduction. I suppose its kind of like a Porsche 911 in that way but it wont grab attention in the parking lot like they did back in the day.

  • You really have to keep the revs up to move along but they do move nicely and with a nice sound.This is the one bike I have that I can’t see ever selling.Still mystified they don’t bring more money.I paid 4800 with 4400 miles on the clock 4 years ago and I still love looking at it .Without a doubt a work of art.

  • Hey it’s my old F4
    Great bike

  • I too am amazed that these truly exotic bikes are so undervalued on the US market although prices have stabilized and the ultra clean low mile bikes are in demand. I have a 2001 F4, beautiful to look at but murder to ride. I have an agreement with my wife that one can go into the living room, so its a toss up between YB10 and the F4. Thankfully I have plenty of time to decide )))

  • Fun fact – Gordon Murray flirted with the idea of designing a motorcycle, but he said that presented with something as beautiful as F4, there was no way that he could top it. I wonder if he still owns his.

  • eBay shows sold for a mere $6,000!

  • Total bargain as long as you know how to look after it.
