MV Agusta F4 1000R

Claudio big boss of MV Agusta, would to put everyone’s minds at rest the future of MV Agusta. During the launch of the MV F4 1000R he gave a promise that now his company has re-structured and re-financed, it is totally and will always be there for its Like fellow Italian Aprilia, Benelli, Bimota, and Mondial, MV Agusta has been turbulent times recently, but as their phenomenal Latin will see them through, so for they must be applauded.

MV claims its bikes are the most in the world. A biased opinion of although not at all near the truth. past models have and sounded like they take on all comers, I believe failed to deliver – especially on the The tables have now turned, as two of the current models recently third and fifth in the European Championship at Monza.

Finally, it seems, the modern MVs some credibility.

The actual MV logo has always been a of mine and has adorned many bikes over the years. despite their splendour, never desperately desired Being expensive and exquisite are the reasons for this, as I’d hate to one.

With an increase of on the F4 1000S the R now has around 165bhp, it a claimed 180mph top speed. The increase has come from a new Marelli fuel injection new pistons, an increased inlet angle giving increased and a new cam profile increasing lift and The throttle bodies remain but the butterflies are PC adjustable, which servicing costs.

To ride, this latest MV is class-equalling fast with the difference in feel being a more linear power giving more revs and power at the top end. The Japanese four-cylinder motors tend to off at the top end whereas the MV arrives at the 13,000rpm rev with ease.

The engine utilizes a clever electronic braking system under which can be adjusted, as can the engine should you want to get serious on the A redesigned, stronger clutch extra plates has also fitted to help with or track day abuse.

Overall weight is now down to 192kg with the main coming from the lighter frame, skeletal Brembo and fuel injection system. comparing it to the competition, the MV feels (it needs to lose 10kg) so more physical effort to although it does remain stable whether cornering or at high speed.

The front does look quite probably due to the chunky new forks, the rear looks lighter its single-sided swingarm and the ultra Brembo wheel. My bike was with Pirelli Super Pros, the perfect tyre for the circuit should the sun have out for the day. But it didn’t.

Rider comfort is also now a bigger, more aerodynamic has been fitted to reduce buffeting.

Many years ago MV set the for the best looking dashes and continues. Neat, clear and the only gizmo missing is a indicator. It’s amazing how we expect certain features to be the

Stopping power should be as as it gets now with radially- calipers and 320mm discs, but for reason a Nissin master has been matched with calipers giving a powerful if wooden feel. Shame.

The master cylinder is also a item, which at least with other mis-matches the Marzocchi forks, Sachs Öhlins steering damper and rear brake caliper.

My was on a damp but drying track so I give the suspension a proper however the new 50mm nitride forks, now with an extra travel, certainly look the as does the multi-adjustable Öhlins rear shock. While the position is race- like and the feel of the bike quite I found it reasonably comfortable my 20-minute stints.

Personally, I don’t think the grey and red graphics show off the splendour of this masterpiece. The red and silver would appeal to me but all the same it oozes quality and technology. It’s also a joy to but is probably 15kg overweight and a strange mix of components.

That it ticks all the important boxes like every MV built 1997, it will stand out and you feel extremely special.

But you know the downside. If you squander sort of money you’ll be in the dog kennel. Move over you’ve got a new roomy.
