Mv agusta F4

MV AGUSTA is reported to be working up a new version of the firm's most iconic modern-day sports bike, the 1000cc F4.

The F4 has been a notable exclusion from the MV Agusta range for some years now, leaving the range to much sadness in the motorcycle world in 2018.

MV Agusta continued to produce the F3 800 and F3 675 super sports machines, although the public had a hankering for the firm’s beltingly fast four-cylinder 200+bhp machine.

The swansong version of the F4 was the Claudio special edition, built in 2018 with a limited run of 100 bikes. It produced a claimed 212bhp, weighed in at 180kg and had the eye-watering price tag of £64,000. Sadly, the F4 was one of the many bikes in 2018 that we lost due to the then latest Euro4 emissions regulations.

Fans of the old F4 should fear not though, as MV Agusta CEO, Timur Sardarov, has confirmed that the machine is set to make a comeback.

He said:

“We have a precise plan for the revival of the brand and this includes the F4. The platform was simply discontinued but a return within a maximum of five years is in our plans. We have also scheduled a return to the World Superbike Championship.”

When the flagship sports bike in the MV range does return, it’s safe to say that its spec will be something to match or even exceed that of the current sports bike crop. The MV F4 was always one of the most powerful and exciting of the sports bike crop, its safe to assume that MV Agusta will not be looking to do anything other than building the fastest, prettiest, and most desirable sports bike money can buy.
