MV Agusta F4 312R: The fastest production motorcycle in the world!


Don't even think of racing your Hayabusa against this...

There’s a new MV Agusta F4 available now – the 312R – and guess what the ‘312’ in the name signifies? Yeah, the bike can hit a top speed of 312km/h – take that you ZZR1400 and Hayabusa owners!

Apart from the gorgeous styling, the new F4 312R also gets better suspension – 50mm Marzocchi forks (carbon-nitride treated, and featuring 13 compression and 22 rebound settings...) and a Sachs monoshock with double hydraulic compression settings (whatever that means...) It also gets very light, forged, Y-spoke aluminium Brembo wheels and brakes with radial mount calipers.

The F4 312R’s 1000cc inline-four makes more than 180 horsepower at 12,400rpm and is fully Euro 3 compliant. More important for many would be the fact that apart from new white and black paint schemes, the bike will also be available in the classic MV Agusta red/silver livery. Ooohhh... :-)

Has anyone succeeded in verifying the claimed 312 km/h top speed? No, I thought not. I haven't seen this kind of exaggeration from the Italians since the 70's, when they were infamous for it. Ferrari claimed an equally absurd 330 km/h for their Boxer.

312KM/H? thats it? I had my 2001 unrestricted Hayabusa and I hit about 341KM/H*if I did my MPH to KMH conversion right* That was 100% factory too!

In August 2007, the 312R set the new Land Speed Record at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah for the fastest Production Motorcycle in the world, averaging 311.53 km/h, over the long course, which is 7 miles (11.3 km) long. The top speed achieved during the run was over 314 km/h, which was achieved at mile marker number 4. The speed record is determined by averaging the speed of the entire length of the course.

I think its a little far fetched to tell us hayabusa owners to never think of racing against one of these. It seems you have forgotten the gentleman's that restricts the Hayabusa's top speed. Same applies to the zx14r. Is the F4 restricted? No it isnt. What about the Bmw s1000r. Nope I dont think so. But everyone is so quick to announce how an unrestricted F4 or a Bmw beat a restricted Busa or a Zx14. Seriously. We all know that these two bikes are the fastest. Pit these unrestricted european bikes up against unrestricted busas and ZZRs and see what happens. Different outcome you bet.
