I know MV Agusta didn’t even sniff a podium finish with this bike but it sure does have a “wow” factor.
Over 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 “A”/ “B” bike or some sort of practice bike but here is a list of some goodies on her:
Ohlins Racing suspension
FGR700 front forks / 46PRXB rear shock
Marchesini Magnesium wheels 6.25×16.5 rear / 3.50×16.5
Digitek Data Acquisition
MICROTEC Programmable ECU
(X98.A7.C1)19×18 Billet Race Master Cylinder
(X98.A7.C0) Remote cable brake adjuster
(XR0.11.51) 16×18 Clutch Master Cylinder
(X99.C4.60 & X99.C4.61) Radial Race 4 Pad Calipers
(08.7150.30) 320mm x 6mm Disc for Monoblock Caliper
(XA1.J0.40) 30mm Rear Caliper
(08.6703.29) 218mm x 4mm Disc
ARROW EXHAUST Full Titanium system
I like radiators the same way chics like shoes and would like to see this one without the bodywork. It isn’t on the list of goodies but I’d think it would be a factory made race radiator. Being a Ferraci team bike I’d like to hope there is more to add to that list from the seller. Hand made tank? Carbon bodywork? Factory maps?
Top of the line stuff circa 2008. It looks like that shock runs around $1200 out of the box. I saw a set of these forks being offered for around $4,800. It would be interesting to know if these have any special internals.
Just your ho-hum Arrow ti exahust. I know these bikes were meant to be raced but I would have no problem starring at this all day in my house.
Anyone have any idea how sophisticated their electronics package was?
I will leave you with this: $47,500, OBO.
Here is a little of Scassa motivating on the bike in 2007. Whoever thought this music was better than the sound of the MV should be placed in a padded room.
