When Reasonably Priced, Superbikes Just Won’t Do

sportbikes like the Ducati and the Suzuki GSX-R1000 make a golden age for relatively affordable motorcycles. Bucking the trend of speed, MV Agusta has built 100 of their F4CC, a bike by CEO Claudio Castiglioni’s personal project. The MV Agusta F4CC is at an exotic car-like $120,000.

the best components money can the F4CC is essentially a hand-built, custom sportbike with 90% made components. Read on to more about this stratospherically priced motorcycle.

The Bespoke Goods

The MV Agusta is based on MV’s F4 line, the iteration of which featured a inline-4 engine. The F4CC has been bored to 1,078cc and 200 horsepower at 12,200 rpm. The radially arranged titanium were designed in collaboration Ferrari, and numerous tweaks polished ports, new combustion geometry, lighter pistons, and con-rod geometry.

Also featured is variable intake ducts with the Shift System (as seen on the Tamburini model), and magnesium which bring the overall weight loss to 8.8 lbs. is routed through a titanium system that resolves in pipe tips.

The engine is to a one-off mechanical slipper and a cassette-style, 6-speed gearbox, all of is housed in stunning carbon bodywork clad with details like titanium inlets. Dual 320mm radially mounted 4-piston monobloc brakes up front and 210mm 4-piston rear provide stopping power. The Marzocchi fork is treated carbon nitride for reduced and the rear Sachs monoshock can be six ways.

Though the F4CC’s components are extremely capable, the details that are truly One-off pieces include the feet, foot pegs. steering column plate, out levers. and Sachs steering and a single-sided magnesium swingarm off forged aluminum Marchesini wrapped in 190/55 and 120/70 Dragon Supercorsa Pro rubber.

Just like its Italian counterparts from Ducati or the MV Agusta F4CC feels relatively compact, and sleek. the handlebars requires a stretch the low tank,and the view from the is simple: gauges feature a speedo and an analog tachometer—just the nothing elaborate. The saddle is finished in Alcantara. and better be for price!

Special materials by CRC (Centro Cagiva) finish off the F4CC’s exterior, but the rider is rewarded sights, sounds, and g-forces, not luxuries. The F4CC isn’t a of ergonomics (and let’s it, high strung Italians tend to be), and its quirky separate it from supremely and cooperative bikes like the CBR1000RR. It feels a bit heavier you might expect at rest in at 412 lbs without fuel), but the F4CC’s riding posture reveals its intent: speed.

On The Road: the MV Agusta F4CC

Fire up the engine the F4CC spits out a guttural and loud exhaust. the throttle and that song a scream, its roars emanating the four titanium exhaust The engine’s sounds are either or intimidating (depending on your of speed-seeking dementia), but anybody a pulse will be stirred by the of an F4CC revving.

Accelerate and the F4CC moves with urgency; the slightest in throttle produces thrust low-end rpms that akin to a big-bore V-twin’s, not an The fatness of the torque curve throughout the powerband, thanks to the variable length intake and astronomic state of tune.

quality can be dialed down to levels, but even in full mode the F4CC responds to with sharp turn-in and mid-corner adjustments. Though its prevents it from competing in the with its MotoGP-derived competitor, the Ducati Desmosedici, it still agile and willing to turn to its low unsprung weight and the finesse of its components.

Shift action is light and and the Brembo brakes offer feel and stopping power— a attribute, considering the F4CC’s personality trait seems to be its to run at anything less than speed. Though ergonomic range from narrow (prepare to tuck your in like a chicken) to heat the underseat exhaust, those are but a speck on the heady experience of the F4CC.

In Conclusion: Why a $120,000

Why spend on a motorcycle? If you’re looking for speed or unqualified handling the MV Agusta F4CC will not ten times better than a like the Honda CBR1000RR it costs ten times more.) If only out for thrills, I’m not sure the F4CC is ten times exhilarating. Heck, it’s subtle enough that you really appreciate the attention to or the carbon fiber weave of the unless you stop to take a look at the body.
