When MV Agusta released the F4 1000 in 2005, they released two limited edition models along side the regular “S” bike. One was the AGO – the first 300 models built. The other was the Tamburini, a $42,695 sculpture named for the iconic designer who called this “My dream. My bike.” 300 were produced, 59 of which were imported to the US.
Top speed was 190.6 miles per hour thanks to 172 horsepower from the inline four engine. MV debuted their Torque Shift System, which was able to vary the intake trumpet length dependent on speed to maximize torque. All bodywork is carbon fiber, making this bike light and gorgeous. For more on this limited edition MV, check out this article on Cycle World, where Mark Hoyer says “if the designer put his name on it, it must be good.”
This example (VIN: ZCGAKFGL15V000184) is a 1-owner bike with 3,462 miles. The owner purchased it from a dealership in Texas, put all of the miles on it early in the bikes’ life, and then parked it for display. He sent it to us for some service work before it got put up for sale.
