Different Name Same Game: 2002 MV Agusta Senna 750

The name Ayrton Senna evokes some crazy raw F1 emotion. Arguably the greatest F1 driver of the modern era (uh, Schumacher and Hamilton excepted), Senna was in his day the highest paid driver and an international superstar. He parlayed some of that wealth and fame – not to mention his close personal relationship with motorcycle magnate Claudio Castiglioni known for the rebirth of Ducati and MV Agusta – to create a funding opportunity for his charity foundation looking after impoverished children in his native Brazil. Senna was a huge motorcycle enthusiast, and lent his name to Senna tribute models for both Ducati and MV Agusta. Today’s bike is a 2002 model MV Agusta Senna F4, based on the very successful re-launch of the MV Agusta brand.

2002 MV Agusta Senna 750 for sale on eBay

The F4 hit the press in 1998 as a 1999 model. Displacing 750cc (749.5cc to be exact) and sporting some novel engineering in the heads and intake runners (courtesy of Ferrari F1 involvement), the original engine developed 126 HP and was utilized in the Oro, the S, the 1+1 two-seater, and the Neiman Marcus Edition. It was not until 2002 that the EVO 2 spec engine was introduced – itself a product of a delayed SPR project – bumping power up to 137 HP, but at a lower redline. The Senna model was based on the EVO 2 spec, but was further blueprinted to allow for the full use of revs and then some: all the way to nearly 14,000 RPM. Festooned with the usual carbon fiber farkles, the black/gray/red Senna livery and unique number tag on the headstock, the Senna 750 was limited to 300 units worldwide.

From the seller:
2002 MV Agusta Senna in excellent condition. Number 218 of 300 made. Very rare. Clean NH title. Sold new by Fast -by- Ferrarci. Has Ferrarci risers, aftermarket LED tail light and rear fender eliminator, I have all parts removed as well as the accessories that came with the bike. (sport exhaust, sport chip, extra sprockets, factory cover) Runs and drives excellent, 3403 miles. I just have too much stuff!

In current markets Senna Editions are star-power bikes that come with exclusivity and some level of cachet. Originally conceived to be a funding vehicle for charity, today these are rare and collectible models worthy of note. We have seen several Senna models on these pages – both from Ducati and MV Agusta – and they always bring with them a stronger market than the base level bikes on which they were created. Such is the case with this model today.

Showing less than 3,500 miles and with some owner mods (original pieces reportedly come with the bike), this particular example looks clean from the photos provided. The red wheels highlight the single-sided swingarm stance, and the mods to the rear bodywork really show off the organ pipe shotgun exhaust. There are a number of watchers on this one, but nobody is piling onto the $7,000 USD opening ask. That is bargain money for a Senna Edition of any brand, however it remains to be seen where the reserve is set. There are a fair number of days remaining, so we may see some action on this one yet. Check out all of the details here. For those of you in more temperate climes, I believe that white stuff is known as snow/ice. Stay warm, stay safe, and Good Luck!!

Featured Listing – 2018 MV Agusta F4 LH44 New In Crate !

The Lewis Hamilton Edition F4 is a sight to behold.  As exotic as a recent MV Agusta is, the LH44 has quite a few special MV and LH touches. 

2018 MV Agusta F4 LH44 ( New Zealand ) For Sale

As an update to the F4 RC, itself a template of the 2018 WSBK mount with ride-by-wire controls and many bespoke components, putting the LH44 a step above is not a trivial exercise – but a full titanium exhaust and accompanying ECU program boosts power to 212hp.  It shares most of the RC’s innovations, MV’s Torque Shift System stretches the torque band, and a full electronics package has selectable maps for power delivery, traction control, and of course ABS.  A factory quick-shifter and slipper clutch make going faster even easier.

As with many limited editions, finishes and materials play a large part.  Just 44 of the mostly carbon LH’s were painted with Hamilton’s choice of candy apple metallic, with a unique white frame, and Öhlins finished their signature gold dampers in black to blend in.  The leather and alcantara seat continues the red and black theme, the smoked windscreen lies low, and even the Pirelli Diablo SP tires came with a red graphic treatment.

RSBFS reader Matt represents the owner of this LH44, which has never been out of its original shipping crate, explaining the limited photos of the actual machine.  It’s number 41 of 44, and though it’s in New Zealand, the factory packaging is ideally suited for trans-oceanic delivery.  He had these comments recently:

A very rare opportunity to purchase what is probably the only Lewis Hamilton F4 still in its crate in existence today.

This bike is number 41 of 44 units built, with Lewis himself taking three units for him and his family leaving just 41 of these incredible machines available to the worlds market.

Also included is an extra set of special Pirelli tyres with red stripe and LH44 logo are included, I believe these were a limited production run and an extra set is certainly more desirable for a discerning buyer.

The asking price is $75,000 USD and Matt will coordinate with the buyer’s shipper.  Contact Matt via email – here -.

Since his partnership with MV Agusta, Hamilton has only added to his record, eclipsing his rivals and heroes on the Formula 1 circuit.  Hard to imagine this would do anything but increase the value of his first superbike project.  As this example is still yet to be uncrated, it might be a very special collector bike for an unequivocal superfan.  Reach out to Matt for additional information via email – here -.

Subdued Sportbike: 2005 MV Agusta Brutale 750S for Sale

If you’re looking to sample MV’s four-cylinder wail but can’t contort yourself into the cramped riding position required of the utterly gorgeous F4, the Brutale 750S manages to pack most of that bike’s thrills into a much less painful package. Somehow, there are people out there who don’t like these, but I love the looks. It’s a testament to the design of the four-cylinder Brutale that it manages to look good in such bland colors. And stock exhausts generally look terrible, but aftermarket components have yet to better these elegant, slash-cut cans.

MV’s 749cc radial-valved inline four motivates the 750S, detuned slightly to a claimed 127hp. The same steel trellis that frames the F4 is reused here, although suspension isn’t quite as plush, with a 49mm Showa fork that still looks impossibly beefy today, mated to a Sachs shock, and the entire package weighs in at just over 400lbs dry.

Personally, the 750S is the Brutale I’d personally want to own: its 127 horses are plenty in such a nimble, unfaired motorcycle. This example isn’t in pristine condition: the Northeast weather has taken a bit of a toll on some of the surfaces, and it has its share of nicks and scratches. In the plus column, it comes with a veritable smorgasbord of upgrade parts and other bike-related stuff. It might almost be worth it to pick the whole lot up to use as spares for your own Brutale…

From the original eBay listing: 2005 MV Agusta Brutale 750S for Sale

For sale is a well ridden 2005 MV Agusta Brutale 750S with a clear NY State Title. I purchased the bike from its original owner in 2012 with just over 2000 miles on the clock and have lovingly cared for and ridden it since. There are currently just over 15k miles on the clock and several tasteful upgrades. Please note the dash was replaced a few years ago, so the new odometer does not reflect the original 5000 miles from the previous unit.

The Bike Includes:
Marzocchi 50mm front forks with Radial Mounts
Brembo M4 Monobloc Calipers
Brembo T Drive 320mm Rotors (Less than 1000 Miles)
EBC Sintered Brake Pads (Less than 1000 Miles)
Custom Braided Steel Brake Lines
Brembo RCS Brake and Clutch Master Cylinders
Decat Mid Pipe
Re-flashed ECU with custom fuel map by Eraldo Ferracci himself
Oberon Clutch Slave Cylinder
Oberon Rider Foot Pegs and Shift/Brake lever eccentrics
Upgraded Water Pump Impeller
Aluminum Fan 
New Pirelli Diablo Rosso 3 Tires (Less than 1000 Miles)
Dash Replaced 10k miles ago
New Headlight Assembly 
Rizoma Sport Handlebar
CRG Blindspot Mirrors
Motovation Bar End Weights/Sliders
Motovation Frame Sliders
Motovation Front Axle Sliders
Motovation Rear Axle Sliders
Rizoma Action Turn Signals
Custom Tail Tidy/Integrated Rear Turn Signals
Union Garage Plate Puller

Sale Will Also Include:
Original Front End
Original Braking System (Rotors/Calipers/Master Cylinders)
Original Front Axle
Original Owners Manual
2 Original Keys

Rear Stand
2 Quarts Motul 10W60 Oil
New Tech Spec Tank Grips
Full Service Records and receipts for the last 8 years
Whatever extra parts I have laying around..
This Bike was my daily ride for several years, and reflects the bumps and bruises of owning and riding a bike in NYC (including being knocked over while parked..). This bike has been meticulously cared for and maintained by Tyler Lunceford (Moto Pistole/North Motorcycle), Kerry Sano (Moto Velocita), Rockwell Cycles and Fast By Ferracci prior to their closure.

It’s nice that the seller includes the original front end and braking set up, but I’d be happy to keep the Marzocchis with those powerful Brembo calipers and matching radial master, thanks. Not that there’s anything wrong with the stock parts… Bidding is up just over $3,000 with about 24 hours left on the auction. I still think these are screaming deals, considering you get most of the looks and rarity of Tamburini’s F4 in a package that allows you to more fully use the available performance. Wind blast on the freeway sort of sucks, but these are a ton of fun everywhere else, and you won’t find a cooler bike for the money.

Featured Listing: 2008 MV Agusta F4 312R

Update 5.18.2020: This bike has SOLD! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

One could argue that naming a sportbike after its designed top speed is unfair. Kinda like naming a kid after Ayrton Senna or John Surtees. It’s a nice honor, but it takes a special person to leave the shadow of a lofty name. In the case of the 2008 MV Agusta F4 312R, being named after its top speed was no issue. With 183 horsepower from a slightly revised version of the regular F4’s radial-valve inline four, the bike had no problem outrunning its long shadow.

The 312R hit three years after the first-gen F4 1000s were introduced, wearing revised 50mm Marzocchi forks and a fully-adjustable Sachs rear shock. Brembo Monoblocs bring everything back into the stratosphere when the road curves or the rider’s nerves give out.

This 2008 MV Agusta F4 312R has been with our buddy Scott since new, and has covered just 2,200 miles in that time. Aside from a custom ECU tune to calm down the famously snatchy stock fueling, the bike is original down to the tires. It has had a recent oil pan gasket and a new battery, but those tires should probably be shelved if you’re going to ride it.

 

From the seller:

Over time I find my track time increasing so I’m continuing to thin my motorcycle herd due to a lack of street riding. You are looking at a mint 2008 MV Augusta F4 312R with 2200 miles on it. I bought it new, never been down or abused. I fell in love with the looks of it, the power and handling just added to it. The riding position is very similar to the Ducati 916 family. It just had the oil pan gasket replaced due to a slight leak along with the oil and the battery replaced. It’s ready to ride however; I’d consider new tires given the set on it is original so getting up there in age. The bike is stock and shows like new. If you know this model it was the fastest thing out there at the time but its fueling was terrible. Read any F4 MV test back then and fueling was always a sore spot. The throttle was like an on-off switch which made the power band almost two-stroke like, a little unnerving with this much grunt. Not this bike, it was gone through by fuel injection guru Doug Laughlin who came out to work on a few MV’s at Robb’s Dyno is Massachusetts. Essentially what he did was to re-write the entire map code to smooth out the power band. Think of it as a performance ECU upgrade, the bike is so much more enjoyable to ride now. Still scary fast but only when you want it to be. I’m a collector who properly maintains and describes my motorcycles. I’ve sold a few bikes over the years, my feedback is I under promise and over deliver. The new owner of a Ducati 999 I just sold sent me an email telling me I misrepresented the bike, never a good start to an email. However, he said my description did not do the bike justice given once he saw it, he was very impressed. No trades or lowball offer please. Shipping is the buyer’s responsibility however I’m happy to work with your shipper.

Price: $9,500

The first-generation MV Agusta F4s are gorgeous, iconic and scarce. To have the opportunity to get the even rarer F4 312R in beautiful condition and a well-documented issue sorted out is unreal. Scott is asking just $9,500 for this gem, which is bananas when you consider how little new motorcycle that figure will buy you. The days are getting longer, don’t sleep on this chance.

Down but not out: 2004 MV Agusta F4 750 SPR

When MV Agusta dropped the F4 to an adoring public, they made a significant splash. This was important, as the F4 was the rebirth of the legendary brand. Penned by designer Massimo Tamburini, the F4 was a spiritual successor to the Ducati 916 line. Featuring a timeless silhouette coupled with an all-new inline four cylinder 750cc power plant, the MV Agusta simply oozed quality and exclusivity. Eventually the 750 grew into a 1,000cc variant, and each of the two capacity lines spawned numerous special editions. In total there were nine different 750 variants offered, along with a dozen different 1,000cc limited offerings. Today’s F4 SPR was the pinnacle of the 750 line and intended for racetrack use. Both the SPR and the later SR (intended as a reimagined ORO edition) utilized a power unit derived from the Senna edition, itself a more powerful engine derived from the 750 Evo 2 (which was originally intended as a SPR model), which itself was an upgraded motor based on the standard 750 S unit. All clear?

To build an SPR required new engine internals to improve power and engine characteristics befitting a race bike. More power (146 HP @ 13,000 RPM) improved straight line performance when fitted with the race exhaust and eprom. The transmission was altered to a close ratio gearbox with a new clutch assembly. The chassis remained standard across the full 750 family, but suspension was upgraded for racetrack use. The SPR utilizes a larger fork with nitride treatment to reduce stiction. A race-spec rear shock sourced from Sachs was a step up from previous models. Weight was reduced through the use of carbon fiber body panels. As with all special F4s, a limited edition numbering scheme was created and a plate was attached to the headstock. The seller has included some great information about the F4 SPR, so I will let him pick up the story:

From the seller:
This is a very limited production MV Agusta F4 750 SPR #268 out of total 300 SPR production. At 146 hp the F4 SPR is the most powerful F4 750 produced. It was built only for 6 short months (June-December of 2003) to culminate the end of the F4 750 series production. There was only one color availabe, the flat black.

This is not a gussied up F4 but a distinct model within the series, produced by MV primarily for track use. SPR engine was equiped with a new cylinder head with re-designed combustion chambers, improved intake and exhaust manifolds, hotter cams, Mahle pistons with oil jet cooling, lightweight crankshaft. This resulted in 146 hp at 13,000 rpm. To improve performance on the track, SPR is equipped with a close ration gearbox. Depending on the final drive used, SPR’s top speed ranged from 170 mph to 183 mph – not bad for a 750cc motorcycle!

Suspension upfront are massive 49 mm Marzocchi forks with titanium nitride treatment. Sachs Racing damper is in the rear and has a dual compression adjustment for high and low speed. Front brakes are dual 6 piston calipers with a single 4 piston caliper in the rear.

More from the seller:
#268 is a strong runner. It does not overheat, leak or smoke. It comes with a full service history with most work done at Pro Italia. It just had a $650 service performed which included new battery, fuel pump, starter solenoid and chain lube. The stand switch was intermittent and was disconnected which results in the N green light to remain on constant. Tires are ok but would recommend replacing if you will be riding this SPR in anger.

It comes with an Ohlins steering damper, factory tool kit, owner manual, service records and one key. It has a clean California title and registration that is good until 12.18.2020

This SPR is not a garage queen. It was down earlier in its life and with the exception of the the slight damage to the rear brake pedal and a cosmetic (no punctures or leaks) dent in the radiator (see pics for both). The rest is cosmetic, primarily the right side fairings are scratched and the front fairing has two small cracks – one just above the headlight and the other below the mirror which I found only after cleaning the bike. The windscreen has a small crack on the top. I have included pictures with the fairings off for better inspection as well as the pictures of the damages. Please feel free to ask any questions.

MV Agusta F4 SPR models are rare. 300 unit count rare. They are some of the most capable 750s on the planet, exclusive as all get out, and expensive on the used market. Expect to part with $15K+ for an impeccable example of the breed. Which brings us to the downside of this particular example: it has been down. Purists will tell you to run – not walk – away from this one. But purists may have the cash a spic-n-span example will bring (even a lovingly used SPR is over $10k these days) And purists are more likely to collect than ride. If you are seeking an awesome bike that you want to use – possibly even on track days – do you really want a museum piece? The pictures show some bodywork damage, but some deeper inspection might be warranted to ensure the rest of the components are straight and serviceable. If they are, this could be a cheaper way to ease yourself into a rare and coveted SPR.

Today’s bike has a Buy It Now asking price of $6,600, with the seller open to offers. While that is not a bad deal for a rare SPR model, potential buyers will have to trade off between cost and value. Part of the bargain here is the in the unknown – damage which is beyond cosmetic. The seller has done a good job of describing and showing the effects of the impact, so that should help. If there are no hidden issues lurking, then all the better. But don’t discount the cosmetic either; those carbon skins do not come cheaply, if they can still be had at all (I don’t know about SPR parts availability – knowledgeable readers feel free to chime in). At the end of the day, you could have a rare rocket for fun, but not likely to be on the same level as a collector bike. Check it out here and then make your choice: are you willing to trade sweat equity for status, or do you buy only the best? Good Luck!!

Furious Four: 2008 MV Agusta F4 312R

The 2008 MV Agusta F4 312R came dancing across the water in pretty short supply, but was still aimed at being something of a halo bike for those whose incomes don’t equal the GDP of an Eastern bloc nation. When this thing was new, it was meant for superbike competition, but didn’t carry the eye-watering $128k sticker of the F4CC dream machine.

2008 MV Agusta F4 312R for sale on eBay

Thanks to higher lift and longer duration cams, punched out throttle bodies and titanium valves, the F4 312R was good for 183 horsepower at 12,400 RPM — or 9 horsepower and 500 RPM above the standard F4. It had a fully adjustable Marzocchi front end, backed up by a similarly tweakable Sachs shock. The whole package weighed just 425 pounds without fuel. Even by today’s insane standards, it’s a fast machine. But in 2008, absolutely nothing stood in its way.

This 2008 MV Agusta F4 312R has been ridden and enjoyed, and it shows, but the bike is still in really nice, well-taken-care-of condition. With more than 10,000 miles on the dial, it’s on the upper end of the scale. To compensate, the seller says it has recently had a full service, which included Engine Ice coolant, Motul oil and new tires. It got a valve adjustment and new valve cover gasket at the same time.

A Touch Too Much? 2014 MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR for Sale

Modern supercars and superbikes have too much power. There, I said it. The only thing keeping 95% of owners from launching themselves into the scenery are the sophisticated traction control systems that do their best to interpret your inputs and give you what you think you want, instead of what you’ve actually just asked for. Purely analog superbikes with more than 160hp or so are a pretty serious handful for anyone without a racing license. That doesn’t mean they aren’t plenty of fun though, and sometimes “too much” is just enough: insane bikes like the MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR are the kind of excessively-endowed exotica that make motorcycling so enjoyable.

What do I mean by “excessively-endowed”? The Brutale’s upright position hangs the rider’s upper torso out in the wind with nothing to hide behind unless your chin is flat on the tank, making even 80mph freeway blasts a bit exhausting, unless you’ve got steel cables for neck muscles. And the 165mph top speed is frankly ridiculous, unless you plan to use high-speed runs as some sort of core isometric workout…

Powered by an evolution of the F4’s radial-valved inline four and cassette-style gearbox, the 1090’s designation helps differentiate it from the F4, although it shares the 1078cc displacement. The 1090RR’s 158 claimed horsepower is down a bit on the previous version, although the Brutale is “tuned for more midrange” so it’s probably the torque we should be looking at, and the bike’s 83lb-ft is pretty significant for an inline four. That is at least a nod towards practicality and should make this a monster on the road, although it’s actually very suited to the track as well.

Brembo Monoblock calipers are mounted to the bottom of MV’s typically beefy 50mm Marzocchi forks and matched to a Sachs rear shock provide a good foundation, while 8-level traction control and RLM “rear-lift mitigation” and a hydraulic slipper-clutch function let you exploit those powerful brakes. If you’re lacking serious threshold-braking skills, available ABS will help you make good use of the available stoppers, and offer peace-of-mind if you live in places where it rains things other than fire and ash…

Other improvements compared to the earlier Brutale include a longer swingarm and wheelbase to help tame the bike’s brutal character, along with a larger fuel tank looks pretty much identical, but has additional capacity and offers better ergonomics for track and canyon cornering histronics. The original Brutales did suffer from somewhat primitive ECUs, but this updated version had better fueling from the start, combined with the aforementioned electronic trickery.

Personally, I prefer the earlier gauge cluster, but time marches on and the additional electronic aids available on this model more than make up for a small area of the bike you likely won’t spend much time looking at anyway when you’re desperately trying to keep this thing from flipping over backwards and laughing your head off. Yes, the F4 is prettier, but it’s hard to argue that the original Brutale isn’t one of the best-looking unfaired bikes of all time. The asking price for this one is $8,850, which is a lot of exotic motorcycle and raw performance for the money. I’m constantly surprised that they don’t command higher values, but that just means that riders of ordinary means can actually afford to buy them, although I wouldn’t recommend owning one as your daily ride if you’re not prepared.

Questions? Text 864-607-5845

The red/white/blue “America” colors aren’t my favorite, but they look good here, owing to the careful choice of individual colors and the fact that they’re draped across an MV Agusta. Overall, the bike is very clean, with just a shade under 11,000 miles on the odometer. It might seem disappointing that the bike doesn’t include aftermarket mufflers, but the gorgeous titanium Arrow headers and link pipe that deletes the catalytic converter should liberate all the noise you’ll need, and there are very few aftermarket setups that effectively duplicate the slash-cut shotgun-style originals that look so good, excepting the tiny openings themselves. These are sexy, sexy bikes and continue to be available at rock-bottom prices and, although they can be more troublesome than your average Japanese bike, are relatively straightforward to maintain and pretty durable when properly maintained. Just don’t drop that headlight unit…

For the children: 2002 MV Agusta F4 Senna

The Senna branded Ducati and MV Agusta special editions are all about friendship. Claudio Castiglioni is the principal figure in this equation; close, personal friend of F1 legend Ayrton Senna, and the captain of the ship for both Ducati and MV Agusta when the commemorative editions were released. In total Ducati offered 3 Senna editions of the 916, while MV Agusta created a tribute edition for both the F4 750 as well as the F4 1000. All net proceeds from Senna-branded bikes profited the Instituto Ayrton Senna, Ayrton’s personal foundation to care for poor and needy children in his native Brazil. Today’s example of the rare Senna breed is a 2002 MV Agusta F4, the 750cc variant limited to just 300 units world wide.

The base MV Agusta F4 750 was no slouch when introduced. As is often noted, the F4 engine was partially developed by the Ferrari Formula 1 engineering team, and featured an inline four with 16 radially splayed valves. The intake trumpets were computer controlled and adjustable for length, allowing for better control of the torque curve depending upon RPM and throttle settings. Good for 126 horsepower in base form, the Senna model utilized the EVO 2 spec motor (which was blueprinted), providing an additional 10 HP and a slightly higher redline. Other bits from the EVO 2 were utilized, including parts for the never released SPR model (note the tach). Bodywork was carbon (instead of ABS), the wheels were model specific and a number plaque was fitted to prove authenticity and exclusivity.

From the seller:
are 2002 MV Augusta F4 Senna 173/300 with 7600 miles. 1 of only 50 imported to the US and the most beautiful IMHO. Always garaged and dealer serviced. I am the second owner having purchased in 2004 and owned for 15 years. I put on 7k of those miles.

Has Senna RG3 exhaust and chip installed. Includes Senna package wheel stand, cover, extra sprockets, and owners documents. Clean history and title. Never wrecked. The bike has been enjoyed and has had a few rock dings I have treated with touch up paint.

Recently came from dealer service with new battery and all new fluids. The bike is running great and ready to be enjoyed. Tires have plenty of tread but are older, (recommend replacement) otherwise, no other flaws to report.

Senna models are rare and tick all of the right boxes: exclusivity, carbon fiber, star power, stunning looks and great go-fast parts. New these would retail at a substantial premium over the standard S model F4. Hit the fast forward selector some 17 years, and prices have dropped to a point where mere mortals can afford – but still significantly higher than base model F4s will pull in. This particular bike looks to be well cared for across the span of two owners, with service records and some great extras. The BIN on this on is $12,500, with an opening auction ask of $11,500. So that should make the price expectations pretty clear. Check it out here, as we all know the MV Agusta F4 was the design Ducati should have used for the 999. With rare Senna livery this will be a stand out bike for years to come. Good Luck!!
