Race Prepped MV:  2008 MV Agusta F4 R 312

Ah, what could have been.  Remember when the MV’s were first relaunched and all the fanfare about their race heritage and how they were going to take on the world?  I think Benelli actually ended up making more of an effort that MV.  They dabbled in European super sport and endurance racing and there was that season or two with Ferraci here in the US but that was about it.  If there was a championship for good looking race bikes though,  they might have swept.  They were very easy on the eyes.

 

That lack of race prepped MV’s  is what made me check out this auction.  Very few people race the darn things.  Most are tucked away in climate controlled garages (or living rooms).  I’d love to know what is under the hood.  If I remember correctly, MV Agusta Corse had a nice array of performance parts for the bikes.  Nowadays, it looks more basic with exhausts and carbon fiber bits. 

It may or may not have MV Corse parts but the seller does state it is loaded with race parts from Fast By Ferracci.  The seller doesn’t provide a complete list but did add a nice video:

Looks like Ferracci ditches the 4 muffler set up of the stock MV.  The BIN is pretty hefty at almost $18,000.  The bids are much lower and the reserve has yet to be reached.  If you are interested head on over quickly as the auction only has a day or so remaining.  Here she is.

 Here is Luca Scassa on the Ferraci bike from Theworldofmotorcycles.com.

And here is Scassa’s  Team Union MV a year or so later from TopSpeed.com

  • I’m thinking 2007 or 2008 was the last time I saw an MV at a track day. I didn’t do a scientific study, but I would guess most track day riders want to ride what they see win in the AMA and WSBK. These days, that means Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, and Ducati. I would say “step it up” to BMW, KTR, MV, and even Honda.

  • Cost of the MV and parts I’m sure is a big factor as well.

  • […] the summer I posted an MV that had been race prepped  but this bike appears to be the real deal.  I guess we don’t know if it was an […]

  • When a replacement tank costs have the price of a new r6, you can bet that to one wants to take an agusta on the track, even if it is for a track day. I looked at the cost for getting my mv on the track and figured it was better to by a used Yamaha or Suzuki and prep it, saving thousands, and not that afraid to toss it.
