Brussels Sprout: 2006 MV Agusta F4 1000 Senna Edition

Located in Belgium, today’s find is the second of the MV Agusta Senna tribute bikes (the first being based on the original 750cc F4). The first thing to know about Senna tribute models is that part of the original proceeds went to Senna’s favorite charity – caring for needy children in his home country of Brazil. The second thing to know is that these are reasonably rare; each of the MV Agusta Senna tribute models are serialized and limited to only 300 units world wide. This particular example currently calls Belgium home.

2006 MV Agusta F4 1000 Senna Edition for sale on eBay

The basis of the Senna edition was the very capable F4 1000 R model. Well known for the radial valve technology (a development from the Ferrari Formula 1 technical team) and variable length intake runners, the 998cc engine was good for 174 HP. Stylistically, the 1000cc edition followed with the same livery as the earlier 750 Senna machine, with subtle differences in accent color. The wheels, for example, were special Marchesini units in silver – rather than the red star pattern offered on the 750. Front brakes were exclusive to the model; calipers were Brembo Racing “Serie Oro” gold four piston radial units. Other minor cosmetic changes included the front forks (black titanium nitride coated), and a special seat was fitted. The Senna could be considered a R+ model with star power.

From the seller:
Very special engine (limited serie 300 pieces)Has traces of use that you can expect from a second-hand.But in very nice condition

(Translated via Google)
Am the first owner
I added a lot of options.
RG3 Exhaust, Titanium Collector and Custom Ignition Board
MV Agusta Veltro footrest and selectors (only 99 pieces manufactured)
Color wheels Champange (Marchesini)
Dark windshield
Xenon headlight (all)
Integrated indicators on the back
A duo seat, but always the mono and seated frame (see photo) in reserve.
Foldable Handles
Metal fans
I still spared it, brake levers, etc., are included
a lot of carbon
The engine is 43,000 km long and has always been done by an authorized dealer.

The bit that should jump out at you here is that this special edition, collectible model MV Agusta has been used. A lot. 43,000 KM equates to nearly 27,000 miles. Bravo to the seller for enjoying such a magnificent motorcycle! This must surely be the highest mileage Senna edition we have seen on these pages. And yet the bike shows well. There does appear to be some hazing or spiderweb cracking in places on the bodywork (i.e. where the kickstand tucks in), but overall you would be hard pressed to guess at the number of miles this bike has traveled based on first look. It is also a testament to MG Agusta and modern engineering & manufacturing practices – while a hyper superbike, these remain resilient and reliable rides.

Price wise, the Senna model has held up pretty well over the years. We have seen some wild swings in asking price depending upon condition and mileage, including a nearly never been run example offered at $29k. More reasonable examples have been trading in the $15-18k range as of late, with exceptional specimens a bit higher. This one is being offered for $15,000, with the seller open to other offers. Look through the pictures, and then check out all of the details here. This might be a great find for RSBFS readers on the continent. Good Luck!!

Dressed to the Nines: 2004 Ducati 749R

Much more than its bigger brother in different clothes, the Ducati 749 is very much its own bike with a unique personality. Smaller, lighter and trading off power for responsiveness, the 749 combines much of what you want in a canyon carver. The “R” version takes that same package, but wraps it in carbon and high dollar farkles to make it even more potent a weapon, and even more artistic. Haters of the Terblanche design will deride the details and proportions, but keyboard warriors and magazine page flippers don’t realize the in-person presence this design manages to pull off. Before you write it off, make an effort to see one in person. Maybe this one. Its a worthwhile exercise.

2004 Ducati 749R for sale on eBay

In general terms, the “R” in Ducati’s lineup brings the normal Strada (street) models closer to the Corse (race) spec. Brakes, suspension, engine and bodywork are usually all updated to more expensive, fully adjustable, more powerful, or lighter units. Adjustability abounds, allowing the rider to set the Ohlins suspension in terms of need. So too, are the seat-tank arrangement and the footpegs. The swingarm is a beefier unit, and lends to a more solid cornering experience. Radial mount Brembos are the best in the business, and handle stopping duties front and rear. The chassis is adjustable for rake, in the event you need to sharpen things up even a bit more. Bodywork is full carbon, and the graphics on the side panels are actually windows showing the carbon weave. The engine has been reworked from the standard 749 Testaretta, with a larger bore and shorter stroke. This configuration allows for higher revs, and power jumps up almost 15 ponies at the top of the rev range, to an impressive 121. As with other R models, the 749R is serialized with its own unique number plate attached to the gorgeous top clamp. The seller has included a lot of general Ducati info in the advert, so I have pulled lines specific to this particular bike.

From the seller:
I have both factory keys and the red programming key along with all owner’s manuals that were issued by Ducati at time of purchase. This bike has been stored in a climate controlled environment since new. Brand new battery installed. Pirelli Diablo Rosso tires are brand new.

This one-of-a-kind bike also features a full Termignoni 57mm Stainless/Carbon racing exhaust system, custom fuel injection tune. Rizoma rearsets

Mine comes with 2 tanks, I bought a regular tank so I can use daily for street riding, it’s smaller

While many would claim that the devil is in the design (748 = beautiful, 749 = u.g.l.y.), I would argue that the devil is truly in the details. And you have to get right in there to see some of the magnificence that is the 749R. Look at the rear adjuster, for example. It’s a slider type that allows for chain tension adjustment without changing ride height. The rear shock linkage works off of a flatter curve, which is more in line with the race bike. The front fork has an axle offset adjustment to allow for the change of trail. I haven’t even gotten into the magnesium bits and other unobtainium sprinkled throughout. The seller has even added some extra tasty bits, further enhancing performance. There is vast beauty here; one need only look to see it.

As it stands, the Terblanche-designed Ducati Superbikes have been some of the most under-rated limited edition models in some time. Because of the polarizing design these have not really appreciated in value in quite the same manner as the earlier Tamburini design. In truth, these are far more capable motorcycles than the original 916/748 line, and deserve a closer look. They have likely bottomed out in terms of value for the foreseeable future, and as this design ages it seems to take on a better outlook. If you are interested in the early Terblance bikes, now is a good time to go shopping. Check this one out here, as it has already has a nibble at the $9,500 opening ask. With no reserve, this beauty is going home with somebody. That somebody could be you. Good Luck!!

Respect the GOAT: 2005 MV Agusta F4 AGO #75/300

MV Agusta. Giacomo Agostini. Greatest of all time? Individually, these are storied names with a rich and successful history of racing at the top level. Together, they were an unstoppable force – allowing MV Agusta to exit the racing scene while still on top, and providing Agostini the platform on which to rack up an incredible number of wins and record number of championships. This bike – the 20005 MV Agusta F4 AGO series – was the first of the 1000cc F4 models to be produced, and it was released in very limited numbers. Today there are a lot of fake AGOs with the #1 number plate on the side (i.e. sticker), but these are not true collector models. The real AGOs are serially numbered as proof of authenticity, complete with the signature of the great one himself.

2005 MV Agusta F4 AGO #75 for sale on eBay

The F4 was the reboot of the famed MV Agusta brand in 1999. Initially released as a 750cc model, a punched-out 1 liter was offered by 2005. Utilizing the same hemispherical radial valve head and variable trumpet style intake (as designed by Ferrari F1 racing engineers), the bigger bike was burlier in most dimensions: 40 additional horsepower and 20 lbs of additional weight over the original F4 750 Oro – a known lightweight machine. When compared to the standard 750S model, the F4 AGO actually weighs *less* than the 750! Front forks are Marzocchi units, while the rear shock was originally a Sachs model – however this has been swapped out by the previous owner (see below). The rest of the AGO is pure graphics and the serialized number plate. Only 300 of these models were originally produced and distributed.

From the seller:
I am downsizing my motorcycle collection and this beautiful Italian stallion is up for sale. I’m sad to see it go but bikes like this are meant to be ridden and this one has spent the last few years being admired for its beauty more than appreciated for its performance. This is your chance to own a piece of MV Agusta history and motorcycle racing history as this bike celebrates the racing career of Giacomo Agostini. Google him if you don’t know who he is.

I obtained this motorcycle from Guy Webster of the Guy Webster Italian Motorcycle Museum in Ojai, CA after he started to liquidate the museums inventory. This bike was on display in Guy’s museum for many years. His “motoguy” sticker is still on the tank and can be easily removed, but in honor of the late motorcycle enthusiast I had decided to leave it in place. Guy had fitted an Ohlins rear shock. The original Sachs shock comes with the bike. The original red paddock stand is included. Certificate of authenticity is included. Comes with 2 keys. Bike is registered to me in the state of California, and is current and has a clear title. With 10,936 adult ridden miles the bike has been well cared for. Still has the original RG3 Arrow exhaust which sounds magnificent. Tires are in good shape.

Bike will also come with a Berzig center stand fitted specifically for this bike. Main oil pan gasket likely needs to be changed and one will be included with the bike. I will also include an oil filter and oil for your first oil change.

The rebirth of MV Agusta brought some fantastic Italian hardware to our shores. And while the numbers of units shipped did increase a fair amount, F4 models are still less plentiful than similar Ducati models, for example. That makes the F4 reasonably rare. The AGO model is known as a 300 unit production only – making it a rare model. Perhaps the most rare of all? This bike has over 10k on the clocks, meaning it is not a garage queen museum piece but an actual rider. It is not often we see these bikes with actual miles on the odometer, and it has nothing to do with the reliability or longevity of the bike. These are modern and well-engineered machines with top quality components throughout – and can take the miles and a fair bit of abuse. But given the cost, many see these as a bike to protect and save, rather than collect miles. This one was saved from that fate, but there is some regular wear apparent on the tank and fairing.

Located on the Central Coast of California, this F4 managed to get out on its fair share of sunny days. Devoid of snowfall or significant inclement weather, it looks like this bike lived where it could be used as intended. The problem is that makes a difference in resale value. An AGO model F4 1000 didn’t start out life as a cheap bike. The upside for collectors is that AGOs have not really made the turn in terms of value appreciate as of yet. And while a very low mileage museum dweller might set you back about $23k or more these days (still way below original MSRP, by the way), this slightly more used example is priced at a more reasonable $15k. Now that price is probably more in line with a nearly new base model F4 – but for the dosh you get the cachet of the rarer AGO model. In the long run the AGO is certainly in a better position to rise in value, just based on the numbers and historical fact. Check it out here, and then be sure and share your thoughts on MV Agusta F4s, and the pull of the AGO commemorative model. Good Luck!!

Six of one… 2007 Ducati 1098 S

Spring is in the air, and new life is emerging from once-frozen ground. Bikes which spent the winter indoors hibernating are emerging from their dens (or living rooms, garages or storage units) hungry for miles. Of all the mileage-hungry bikes we have seen thus far this year, I propose this 2007 Ducati 1098 S example as the most malnourished of the lot. Now, normally the “S” model does not warrant RSBFS attention; after all, we all like our “R” bikes better (like this one, for example). But sitting in “as new” condition with but SIX miles on the digital clocks, this 12 year old bike has only experienced a half mile for each year of its life! Condition warrants posting, even as some readers wonder why. RSBFS is a many and varied smorgasbord of interests – from static collections to knee dragging good times – and in striving to cater to all there will invariably be some dissent; everyone is welcome.

2007 Ducati 1098 S for sale on eBay

As we learned here, the Ducati 1098 was an evolution of the oft-maligned 999 series. Penned by a new designer who followed more closely in the footsteps of Massimo Tamburini, the 1098 is more directly related (in design language) to the 916 / 996 / 998 series of bikes. With a 100cc bump in displacement over the 999, the 1098cc motor (as opposed to the 1198cc motor in the 1098 R bike) produced a healthy 160 HP. The S model shares most of its DNA with the base 1098 offering, shaving approximately 5 pounds through the use of different wheels (shared with the R), and an upgrade to Ohlins bouncy bits (as opposed to Showa components on the base model). All in all, the S model was a potent weapon without the sticker shock of the race-bred R bike.

From the seller:
Only has 6 original factory miles and is in excellent condition. For sale by owner with clean title. Serious inquiries only – no trades.

There is not a ton of information on today’s specimen; the seller has not said a lot, and there are fewer pictures than all of us would like. The pictures that do exist show a clean, stock 1098 S. No comments on how the bike was stored, if it was pickled (i.e. drained fuel or added stabilizer, cylinders fogged, etc). Any buyer intending to ride this beauty will undoubtedly need to recommission it with a service – it’s doubtful that the valves have gone out of spec in so few miles but the belts certainly will need to be changed. Tires, if original, will also be suspect for any real-world riding. But that’s probably not the point about this bike. The real point is condition versus age, and this one has a pretty impression ratio. Had it been an R bike – or something even more rare – I’m sure the reception would be much greater. This one is sitting on a $14,500 BIN – which is sure to light up the comments section with pricing concerns. But when you look at it, this is basically a new 1098 S going for the same price as a new 959 Panigale and WAY cheaper than any of the new V4 models. Check it out here, and then let us know if you would rock this new/old bike and why. Good Luck!

On Form: 2008 Ducati 1098 R

When Pierre Terblanche took over the Ducati styling reins from Massimo Tamburini he had very big shoes to fill. For years the 916 / 996 / 998 series captured the hearts, minds and wallets of riders everywhere. In retrospect, the reception of the 999 (pronounced “ugly”) and the short span of three years availability was a pretty big clue to the powers that be that the new design language wasn’t cutting the showroom mustard. Enter Giandrea Fabbro, chosen to pen the successor Ducati Superbike – the 1098. Evoking elements from the 916 line – including the glorious single-sided swing arm – yet in a modern day form, Fabbro created an update to the iconic silhouette and evolved the Ducati Superbike for the next series of models.

2008 Ducati 1098 R for sale on eBay

But the 1098 didn’t just turn heads in the magazines and dealership showrooms. You see, part of the reason for the 1098 was WSBK racing. Ducati was already at the limit of their performance technology in World Superbike with the 999cc limit for twins. The next step to get on par with the might of the Japanese was more displacement. Ducati decided to buck the rules and evolved the 999 mill to just under 1100cc, thereby petitioning the sanctioning body to change the rules. A standoff ensued, and no side wanted to give. Ducati – a key mainstay of WSBK – threatened to boycott the series. Eventually, the sanctioning body came to an understanding with all of the players in the series: the maximum displacement for twins was raised to 1200cc, but concessions were introduced to maintain parity among the manufacturers. Thus, the Ducati 1098 was allowed to enter the 2007 WSBK series.

From the seller:
2008 Ducati 1098R ,mileage 3353 ,number 99 of 450 like models in the United States, carbon
rear shock guard,key and F/Sprocket, full termi system,dyno tuned with power commander installed

Despite the return of classic good looks, the Ducati 1098 introduction was not all smooth sailing. Initial tests indicated that the 999 was actually the easier bike to ride fast; the 1098 was more sensitive to setup. But the 1098 was definitely successful at the racetrack, winning the 2008 WSBK series championship. The 1098R model, as we see here, follows the unique formula that makes Ducati “R” bikes so special. Sure, it has more carbon fiber and better, more adjustable suspension. But the real trick with Ducati R bikes is in the engine, where there is more. More engine, that is. You see, the Ducati 1098 R actually displaces 1198cc, built right up to the (new) limits for Superbike racing. With 180 HP on tap in stock form, the 1098 R was the most potent twin cylinder sport bike available at the time, and had an equally impressive price tag.

Today’s example is a 2008 model, and appears to be very well cared for. From the pictures it is obvious the owner is a Duc fan, as there is also a 999R in some of the photos. Ducatis are lonely machines, so it is nice that this one had some company. With only 3,353 miles there is not much that should be wrong here. The Power Commander is a popular fueling mod that can help throttle response and gain back some HP that was donated to those evil folks from the EPA. The clutch cover is practically a mandated aftermarket necessity. Otherwise all looks to be in order. No mention of a service, belts or valve adjustment, so interested buyers might want to ask some questions. Check it out here. When it comes to Ducati R models, you could certainly do worse than a 1098. Good Luck!!

The Good Stuff: 1995 Ducati 916 for Sale

Well, it’s finally starting to happen: the days of dirt cheap Tamburini Ducati superbikes are coming to an end. Yeah, 748s and 996s still offer some pretty great bang for your buck but, if you were planning to pick up a first-generation 916 like this nicely-upgraded bike for peanuts, you’d better get cracking. What, you thought it’d be possible to find low-mile examples of the most iconic motorcycle of the modern era would last forever?

Under the skin, it was just an evolution of Ducati’s four-valve, liquid-cooled 851/888. But that skin… It made the bike a star whose appeal reached far beyond the hard-core biking community, and the 916 appeared as an aspirational object in film and print media, in music videos, and on posters that adorned the walls of a million teenagers who didn’t own a bike, maybe never ended up owning a bike. Even if you’re not into motorcycles at all, you’ll probably recognize the 916.

The original 916’s 114 claimed horses sounds pretty paltry, compared to today’s superbikes, or even today’s supersports. But while its performance has been surpassed by modern sportbikes, the 916 still handles beautifully, sounds amazing, and parts are still available to keep them on the road. There are also a wealth of parts to upgrade them, and there is pretty good parts-interchangeability between the different models. Make all the snarky comments you like about Latin reliability, but at least the 916 was designed to be serviced: every bike will need to come apart at some point, and those quarter-turn Dzus fasteners make removing the bodywork a five-minute affair.

From the original eBay listing: 1995 Ducati 916 for Sale

AP Racing full race 6-pot titanium brakes, titanium hardware, and master cylinder. These were race team-only in ‘95. Marchesini magnesium wheels, the race wheel (RARE). Carbon fiber air box, air tubes, in-box filer, under tray, swingarm cover, chain cover, chin lower, fender front with air vents. Nichols billet clutch basket. Ferracci stator/starter/ EPROM chip/Öhlins damper. Termignoni carbon ovals. Bike has been well cared for from the time I got it in ’98 bike still draws crowds. It’s a great ride: runs strong, starts every time. You won’t find a better ’95 916. Will meet shipper at the curb. Payment to be sent next day mail, you will have 3 days to pay in full by check. As soon as funds clear the bank, bike will ship. No BS.

The seller is asking $16,000 for this bike and that’s pretty high for a 916, but we all know they’re headed that way. Miles aren’t especially low, but the bike has, as the seller indicates, had some very nice parts thrown at it, especially those trick front brakes. And with Ducatis, a bit of mileage is a good thing: it means the bike’s been used and likely maintained. Which is great if you plan to ride, instead of display it. I’d normally consider a claim like “you won’t find a better ’95 916” to be hyperbole but, unless you’re looking for a display bike with single-digit miles, I don’t think he’s wrong.

MV Agusta August 10, 2018 posted by

Featured Listing: 2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna #222

The fanboys will tell you that the MV Agusta F4 created a warp in the sportbike space-time continuum. With serious power developed with the help of Ferrari racing engineers and overall design courtesy of the Cagiva Research Center and legendary artist Massimo Tamburini, the limited Senna edition created a rare and gorgeous motorcycle with performance and cache that stands out today. The haters simply called it a warmed over Ducati 916.

Featured Listing: 2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna #222

It is true that the rebirth of MV Agusta gave Tamburini a fresh canvas upon which to work – making the F4 the spiritual successor of the 916/996/998 lineup. The supermodel sexy bodywork is pure Tamburini, as was the single sided swingarm. But unlike Ducati twins, MV Agusta offered a clean sheet of engineering paper enroute to a 174 HP inline four cylinder screamer. Not-so-subtle touches like the four organ pipes poking out of the tail section give the F4 a character unlike any other bike.

From the seller:
This bike is like new. Always garaged and covered. No scratches. Number 222. I bought the bike 2 years ago when it had less than 100 miles. It was recommissioned with new fluids, tires, and the heavy duty water pump. Comes with original rear stand, cover and certificate. Ready to ride!

Another area where MV Agusta mimics Ducati is in the proliferation of Limited Edition models. There exist 5 exclusive variants of the F4 (each numbered and limited, naturally), not counting the mass production F4 1000S and 1000R models. The Senna takes its roots from the R model, but adds specific graphics on carbon panels, updated front (Marzzochi) and rear (Sachs) suspension, exclusive Marchesini wheels, and an upgrade to the already excellent Brembo brakes. Finally, the rider’s perch was upgraded to alcantara. Notably all Senna editions (whether they be Ducati or MV Agusta) offered a percentage of the profits to support Ayrton Senna’s charity looking after needy children in Brazil.

The F4 has oft been voted the most beautiful motorcycle ever developed. From the sharp front view to the flowing side panels, from the exposed rear wheel to the shotgun pipes, the F4 is a looker. And the Senna is, arguably, the best looking of the bunch. The carbon/graphite color scheme preserves the wonderful shape of the bike without the “look at me!” schemes of some of the other editions. While Senna was not known as a motorcycle racer, he was a consummate competitor with serious star power. And speaking of power, don’t forget that you have 174 happy ponies on tap for the asking.

This particular bike looks to be what one would expect given the pedigree: very low miles and very well cared for. With but 526 miles on the digital clocks, this one-of-300 examples is looking for a new home. The opening ask is only $13k, with the BIN set at $16k. Those are very competitive numbers, with most Senna editions we have seen having sold in the $15k-$18k range. Check it out here before this exclusive rocket finds itself a new home. Good Luck!!
