Arguably the only surprising thing about the original MV F4 of 1998 was that it was launched as a 750 at a time when the class was fast becoming moribund. The Japanese factories’ main focus of attention had already switched to 1,000cc sports bikes but it took all of six years for MV to follow suit.
Number ‘048’ of the 300 and one of only 3 allocated to Italy, this MV Agusta F4 1000 Agostini was purchased new in February 2005 by the current vendor. The bike has covered only 3,809kms in the last 14 years and the mechanicals and bodywork are in excellent condition. The machine also comes with MV Agusta framed Certificato di Autenticita; instruction manual and warranty booklet; manufacturer’s brochures; catalogue of special parts; EPROM technical sheet; vehicle licensing/registration form V55/1 and all correspondence and other paperwork relating to its purchase.
