Over on the auction site, we’ve got an unused example of one of the most beautiful motorcycles ever built. The Serie Oro (Italian for gold) was the first F4 released to the public, and just 300 examples were sold worldwide.
Designed by Massimo Tamburini, the legend who brought the Ducati 916 into the world, the F4 featured the traditional red/silver scheme of MV Agustas 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 airbox. This helps the bike weigh just 396 pounds, which meant that the 124 horsepower, 749cc inline-four was plenty adequate.
This example (VIN: ZCGF400AAXV000223) is #223 out of the 300 that were built. It has never been ridden and is completely stock. As a zero-mile bike, it still has some touches from the delivery process, such as covers over the grips and the steering stabilizer. It is riding on the original Pirelli Dragon tires. The sale includes the factory stand, MV briefcase, two keys, warranty paperwork, warranty booklet, and the original Cagiva MSO.
