MV-Agusta F4 1000 Bike Overview
The F4 series was MV-Agusta’s comeback project in 1998, in the long line of predecessors the F4 1000 was born in 2005. There have been improvements to the machine over the years including losing 10kg from the weight, new tyres (Pirelli Super Corsa SP) and brilliant suspension, it makes for a very enjoyable ride.
The latest version, released in 2013, is kitted out with the ride-by-wire package, Brembo monobloc brakes, multi-functional dash and a steering damper.
In the earlier version of the F4 1000, there were a few teething issues with build quality and reliability. It seemed that the F4 1000 was certainly a fair weather bike, not be used on salty roads or rain, but with a price tag of around £14,000 you might want to keep it wrapped up in the winter. However, these issues were corrected in updated version from 2013, the eye-catching detail, brilliant paint finish and great extra features are second-to-none.
Starting price for a brand new MV-Agusta F4 1000 is around £14,000.

A very nimble chassis with fine control, the riding position makes it easy to flick, without it being unstable.
Excellent, holds its own on the road and track with any of the current crop of superbikes. Only an expert can out ride the bike, mortals can't reach the potential of the machine.
It's a 1000 cc sports bike so you can chew tyres and fuel. However compared to my R1 and GSXR's I have not noticed any difference.
Reliability has been perfect, maintainance is like with any bike very important. The cush drive rubbers do soften quite quickly compared to Japanese bikes, but easy and fast to replace.
Brembo all round, M50's, very good, they could be the slightly lighter race version but this won't provide more than a few percent improvent. I've added iron disks to increase the coefficient of friction and paired with ferrodo CP1 pads. Awesome?
