2008 World Superbike dreams 4-MV Agusta F4 1000R

Finally, we spoke to Federico Totti at the MV Agusta racing department. Totti explained to us how MV Agusta aims at being on the World Superbike paddock with the F41000R in 2008 and how to get there. “We have two different projects next year; one in the Italian superbike championship and one in the AMA. This is our starting procedure for 2008 World Superbike effort.

The programme is not sure yet and it depends on the AMA results. The English and American championships are the most important to us, we need to sell bikes! But we have in our mind to start the World Superbike efforts in 2008.” “It is very important to be racing for MV Agusta.

We have a name and history and we can’t just go into World Superbike without knowing we will get good results.” “We will continue with our current riders next year. For 2008 we need a very fast rider and it is not important where he is from (TS: I mentioned Biaggi again…). We want to find persons that believe in the project, it is important that the person we are looking for is a MV rider more than a superstar.”

I ended our conversation by saying good luck and that I really hope to see MV Agusta with the F4 1000R on the World Superbike paddock in 2008. Words: Tor Sagen/Photo: MV Agusta

2007 MV Agusta F4 C.C. 1079 from EICMA

MV Agusta launched the world’s most expensive production bike at the EICMA show in Milan November 14th. MV Agusta will build a 100 limited run of the C.C. (after Claudio Castiglioni since he dreamt it up one night). The bike gets extremely high specifications such as a 1079cc engine built from scratch (not an F4 evolution). The new engine produces 190bhp at the crankshaft whilst complying with Euro 3. With MV Agusta titanium replacement mufflers the engine produces a sky-high 198bhp.

The upper crankshaft have been heavily modified due to the use of a new oil-cooled generator. Conrods and pistons are new, lighter and lowered. The cylinder block have also been lowered and the engine features 4 titanium radial valve heads. MV Agusta have used titanium, magnesium and carbon fibre wherever possible and many of the engine components are hand built.

The bike have been limited to 315km/h but can do 320km/h without restrictions. The tyres are the issue here as they have not been homologated for speeds that exceed 315km/h. MV Agusta told me that they are taking orders for the bike already.

You have to leave your dealer with a hefty deposit and then wait. Don’t expect this one to be ready for Christmas. MV Agusta is asking €100.000 for the privilege.

MV have also told us that they will throw in a Trussardi leather jacket and a Girard Perregaux watch made exclusively to the 100 new owners of the CC. Giacomo Agostini being interviewed on the F4 CC and Claudio and Giovanni Castiglioni. By Tor Sagen/Photos: Tor Sagen

2007 MV Agusta F41000R

MV Agusta have updated all models for 2007. One of them is the F41000R and yes, we are talking colours. But believe us, those new colours have been researched and combined with Michelangelo’s touch.

That’s why the F41000R looks so fresh in white and black. The 2006 F4 1000 R engine had already received a lot of updates to make it cleaner and the 2007 engine stays the same. The Euro 3 modifications that had to be made involves adjusting the Magnet Marelli fuelling system and adding a lambda sensor directly in front of the catalyser. To achieve this MV Agusta F4 1000 R now features a one-piece exhaust system with no joints.

This minimises the risk of anything disturbing the airflow and that means a smoother ride. The F4 is not restricted to any particular top speed and can do more than 300km/h, hence the need for the radial Brembo mono block brakes. The F4 1000 R produces 174bhp @ 11.900rpm and 111Nm @ 10.000rpm.

Also available in red/silver and black.

2007 MV Agusta Brutale 910 S

The 2007 Brutale 910 S have received many of the same upgrades as the F41000R got last year and this year. The most important one is a new ECU, the same Magnet Marelli 5SM as on the F4. This has allowed both for EURO 3 compliance and improved power and torque.

New intake valve angles and new valves and pistons generating another 2 horsepower on top and better delivery through the range. A lambda sensor have been introduced and the exhaust system is now without any joints. The modifications have also allowed MV Agusta to fit a larger air-box to the Brutale (As the ECU have been moved behind the cylinders). The Brutale 910 now produces a claimed 139bhp and 96Nm.

New colour is orange.

2007 MV Agusta Brutale 910 R

Just the same as the 910 S, but with better suspension, radial Brembo mono block brakes and loads of detail work.

2007 MV Agusta Brutale 910 R Italia

Castiglioni’s tribute to the Italian world champion football team.100 will be made and those not awarded to the Italian football team will be for sale.

2007 Cagiva Mito 500

The Mito 500 was completely unexpected and finally there might be a supermono available on the market again. The decision to produce or not have not been taken yet, but we hope Cagiva will. Everything is Cagiva Mito 125, apart from the fact Cagiva have made a new 500cc single cylinder engine for it.

Claimed figures are 60bhp and 50Nm and dry weight 133kg.
