On top is, of course, the very beautiful MV Agusta F4 1000, a more powerful version of the earlier F4 750. The MV F4 is the best looking motorcycle in the whole world. Which is why I was surprised when I saw pics of the bike below (bottom of this post). No, it's not an old Rajdoot. It's an MV Agusta 600, which the Italian company used to make in the late-1960s. Wow! That's motorcycle design evolution for you! Thank god for Massimo Tamburini.
The F4 750 was, by far, the most mind-blowingly beautiful motorcycle to ever come out of Italy, and the 1000 continues to flaunt the same lines. It’s amazing, really – the 750 made its debut way back in 1997. Giacomo Agostini, who won multiple motorcycle roadracing world championships on MV Agusta bikes in the 1960s, unveiled the F4 Series d’Oro at Milan Show back then. And yet, the shape looks so terrific even now. I guess Tamburini has something special. He knows how to pen lines that stir our souls. Or maybe it’s something about Varese, in Italy, where the MV Agusta factory is situated.
To come to the bike itself, the 1000 has better ergonomics and is more comfortable than the old 750. Its 998cc inline-four revs to 11,750rpm, produces 166 horsepower, and the bike will do close to 290km/h. Plus, it’s littered with those desirable little bits which make it so lust-worthy – the exquisite chrome-moly chassis, 50mm Marzocchi USD front forks, beautifully machined alloys, and single-sided swingarm. Anything that can make a Japanese 1000cc superbike seem commonplace has got to be something really special. The MV Agusta F4 1000 S is that something. Italian motorcycles rock!
