Post-Sale Update: This MV Agusta F4 Serie Oro sold for $33,500 on eBay.
After decades of racing dominance in the middle of the 1900s, MV Agusta started to flounder after the death of the Agusta brothers who founded the company. They piddled around until being purchased by Cagiva in 1991 – but it took nearly another decade for the company to start making bikes again. They came out with the MV Agusta F4 Serie Oro, a phoenix rising from the ashes that jump started MV into a contender that’s been successful since, and just released the 800 Dragster.
The Serie Oro was the first F4 released to the public. Just 300 examples were produced, and only 20 were brought to the United States. Designed by Massimo Tamburini, the legend who brought the Ducati 916 into the world, the F4 featured the traditional red/silver scheme of MV Agusta’s in the past, as well as a distinctive four pipe undertail exhaust. The swingarm and wheels (among other parts) were made from magnesium, then anodized gold to match the “Oro” name. Any part that’s painted on this bike was made with carbon – even the fuel tank and air box. This helps the bike weigh just 396 pounds, which meant that the 124 horsepower, 749cc inline-four was plenty adequate.
This specific MV Agusta F4 Serie Oro (VIN: ZCGF400AAXV000281) is #281 of the 300 produced, and has 3,400 miles. The seller takes great pride in actually riding this bike, and not just locking it away in his living room. The bike has recently had a full service, including new tires and a battery. Now it’s just ready for your butt in the seat.
