One of my favorites of the era, the MV Agusta F4 750 still evokes an emotion that maybe 10 other bikes of the past 25 years share. I realize it’s not that fast compared to it’s competition (or it’s later iterations) of the time, and it came with a hefty price new as well. But it is so striking to my eyes and has such a unique pedigree that I always take note when a nice one appears. As such, when I see one that has a reasonable 10k miles and a disclosed reserve of $7k, it makes me start rearranging the garage to find space. Is the F4 S the bargain exotic that enthusiasts should consider as an entry collector bike?
from the seller:
2002 MV Agusta F4 750, 749CC, I4, 6-Speed. Upgraded with the RG3 race exhaust & EPROM tuned by Ferraci. This bike was originally purchased as a collectors bike with no miles till 2009. Since being ridden it has been maintained with an authorized MV Agustadealer to the highest degree and is immaculate. The F4 engine is a liquid cooled inline 4 cylinder (4-stroke) with DOHC, 16 radial valves, electronic multipoint injection, and induction discharge electronic ignition. The S in the F4 750 S stands for Strada and is essentially the same as the F4 750 Oro but with aluminum pieces in place of magnesium. Top speed is estimated at 170 mph, with a 0-60 mph of 3.1 secs and the quarter mile in 10.98 sec. The MV Agusta F4 750 was the most eagerly awaited slice of Italian superbike exotica pretty much delivered on all counts. Simply stunning Massimo Tamburini styling was the most beautiful since the same designers Ducati 916 of 1994 (and is generally considered to still be the most beautiful bike in production). Spec, build quality and handling was there to match. Only the MV Agusta F4 750’s screaming four-cylinder engine failed to be a world beater still good though. The F4 750 is an instant classic and coveted and collected in equal measure.
