Senna-sational! 2002 MV Agusta F4 Senna Edition

Bikes become collectable in a few ways: They can be iconic motorcycles that have simply survived the ravages of time and modification, they can be homologation machines built in limited numbers and destined for the racetrack, or they can be born into collectability, with a flashy name and fashionable limited number plate. This Senna Edition MV Agusta F4 is the latter, although it was created for a very good cause.

In the event your life revolves only around two wheels and you are unknowing of any other motorsports, Ayrton Senna was a Formula 1 driver and is considered by many to be the greatest F1 pilot of the modern era (no flame wars, please). He was to four wheels what Rossi is to two. Brazilian born, Ayrton created the Instituto Ayrton Sennato help the poor and homeless children in his native country. Proceeds from the ultra expensive Senna Edition MV-A F4 were routed through that charity.

From the seller:

YOU ARE LOOKING AT A FINE PIECE OF MOTORCYCLE EXOTICA.
THIS IS THE EXTREMELY RARE MV AGUSTA F4 SENNA
ITS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN STORED INSIDE.
THE MILEAGE IS PRETTY ACCURATE HOWEVER, IT STILL GETS RIDDEN OCCASIONALLY SO IF THERE IS A HUNDRED MILE OR SO DIFFERENCE, SO BE IT.
IT ALSO COMES WITH THE STAND AND A BIKE COVER AS WELL.
THIS IS #173 OF 300 PRODUCED WORLDWIDE.
PLEASE KNOW THAT THIS WAS RIDDEN AS A STREETBIKE SO THE PAINT SHOWS NORMAL WEAR FROM A BIKE OF ITS AGE.
IT WAS NOT A MUSEUM PIECE, BUT IS STILL IN ABSOLUTELY AMAZING CONDITION!

Make no mistake – these Senna Edition F4s are rare bikes indeed. Similar in production numbers to the Serie Oro (300) and closer in spec to the 750 Evo 2 release, the Senna Edition was indentified by number pate on the headstock, carbon fiber bodywork and suspension upgrades. All in all, Ayton’s name was the real selling point.

Sennas were high dollar bikes when new, and continue to hold decent resale value when we see them offered at auction. This particular bike is sitting at a mere $8,100 with reserve still in place. Past Sennas would indicate a target somewhere between $12,000 and $15,000 depeding on condition. Pictures of this bike look like they were taken through a jar of vaseline, but I would image the real thing would look even better. To check out all of the details, click the link and jump over to the auction. Think of the children!

The Stuff of Legends: 2002 MV Agusta F4 750 Senna

For Sale: 2002 MV Agusta F4 750 Senna Edition

Miles: 1,800

Location: Santa Barbara, CA

Price: $16,500

Take one Claudio Castiglioni, President of MV Agusta and close personal friend of Ayrton Senna (regarded by many as the finest Formula 1 driver of the modern era), add noted designer Massimo Tamburini to the mix (you might remember him as the guy that created the Ducati 916), stir in a Ferrari designed in-line four cylinder engine, wrap it up in carbon fiber bodywork and perch the whole package on stunning composite alloy wheels. This, my friends, is the numbered and rare MV Agusta F4 750 Senna Edition.

Today’s bike is a featured listing on RSBFS: MV Agusta Senna #175 of 300!

With only two owners and 1,800 miles (how do you people do that??), this nearly new motorcycle is ready to go to a new home. And when it does, the lucky buyer will be getting an amazing motorcycle in spotless condition – at a great price!

From the seller:
2002 Senna, one of the most beautiful MV Agusta’s ever, in my opinion.
Excellent condition, only 1800 miles.
I am the second owner, bought it about three years ago from MotoForza in Oceanside, CA, and put about 100 miles on it, if that. Bought as a more of a collector’s piece, but would start and run it regularly to keep the fluids moving.

Has the racing Arrow exhaust fitted, and comes complete with
rear stand, MV Agusta Factory indoor cover, stock exhaust, user manual, etc.

It is in beautiful condition, I apologize the pics are not great and do not do the bike justice. But anyone looking at this ad has seen one before and it looks as good as any you have seen. Reluctantly selling because of another bike purchase, and can’t keep everything!

Plus if you are in CA, you can transfer the license plate to you which reads “F4 MV”….that alone is worth $16,500. Just kidding.

Please send me PM or email to prdelio@sbneuro.com if interested. Will ship or help deliver in California within reason

When the Senna Edition was released in 2002, it retailed for $24,995. All 300 bikes were sold with the proceeds going directly to the Instituto Ayrton Senna – a charity benefitting Brazillian children – set up after the racer’s death. Sharp looks with performance and handling to match, the MV F4 continues to be a desirable motorcycle. These limited edition models only enhance the value of the bike.

According to the seller, this bike comes with a cover, a manual, personalized CA plates, a rear stand and the stock exhaust cans. With low miles, lots of additional pieces, absolutely sanitary condition and a fair price, this one should not last long. If you are interested, email the seller at the address above. But you’d better do it quick; I don’t see this deal hanging around very long!
