MV AGUSTA has revealed a brand-new F4 at Italy’s EICMA. Claudio Castiglione, president of the MV Agusta Group, designed and developed the motorcycle.

Enrico D’Onofrio is the company’s managing director. “We are determined to construct a successful future for MV Agusta,” he stated. “Our dedication to the new product development plan is unwavering. The raw beauty and performance of the F4 together with the recently launched Brutale, two motorcycles that are unmistakably ‘Made in Italy,’ represent the foundations on which we will build our future.’”

The F4’s engine, frame and single-sided swingarm are completely new. The 998cc in-line four has variable-length intake tracts and makes over 186 hp at 12,900 rpm. The bike comes with a slipper clutch.

MV Agusta also gave the bike a new ECU together with the TC MK II traction control system with eight levels of control along with double EFI mapping (sport/rain).

The frame has been re-dimensioned, and the swingarm is longer and lighter while maintaining all of the adjustments of its predecessor. The frame’s new layout has resulted in a motorcycle that is 40mm narrower, making it the most compact supersport in production, according to MV Agusta.

The F4’s dry weight is 423 lbs.
