New F4Z breaks cover a week before expected

This is the MV Agusta F4Z

MV Agusta has just revealed its F4Z on Twitter, a week before expected.

The bike, which is based on the legendary F4, is the result of a collaboration between MV Agusta and Italian car design company Zagato.

Because of its appearance in a couple of teaser videos (the most recent of which is below), we’ve had a pretty good idea of what the striking F4Z will look like, but this is the first official image from MV Agusta.

We think the F4Z has a bit of a futuristic-but-retro look to it and there's no doubt the design will be controversial, not just from an aesthetic standpoint but also because the F4 it's based on is such an icon of motorcycle design; is this a design suitable to wear the F4 badge?

What do you think about it?
