MV F4 is on its way to Canada. Soonish.

Much has in the motorcycling landscape since the years of MV in the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s. As a kid, when I became interested in motorcycle history, I was stunned by photographs and and white films of ’50s Prix events. Alongside the exotic three- and four-cylinder from MV, Benelli, and Mondial single-cylinder thumpers from and AJS.

I couldn’t make of it. It was clearly the technology of the past the technology of the future. But that was

In MV’s absence from the the four-cylinder engine, since CB750 in 1969, has become the motorcycle engine. The distinctiveness was once MV’s calling had vanished. Could the standard platform of an across-the-beam four be by MV in building a machine that was not a more expensive Japanese with an illustrious tank

If we judge motorcycles solely on MV has hit the mark. Walking through the lounge on the way to my idling tester, have I encountered a four-cylinder note so acoustically serrated. And is with the stock exhaust fitted.
