Default 2010 MV Agusta F4 Teased Ahead Of Milan Debut




Quote:
DESPITE ITS impending sale by parent company Harley Davidson, Italian bikemaker MV Agusta hasnít slowed down on development of the new F4 sportsbike.

While most of the next generation F4 remains unseen, this preview of the new modelís face (above) shows that, at least up front, cosmetic changes will be minimal.


The 2009 MV Agusta F4RR

According to Italyís OmniMoto, the new F4 will draw power from a tweaked version of its existing 998cc inline-four, developing 138kW at 12,900 rpm.

While it falls 5kW short of the class-leading BMW S 1000 RR, the new F4 - if OmniMoto has it right - easily bests the Suzuki GSX-R1000ís 120kW. The current F4 produces 128kW.
The new F4 is expected to debut at next weekís EICMA motorcycle show in Milan.

MV Agusta was like the Ferrari of Motorcycles when the F4 first came out.

But the game has moved on, and it needs to make more of a statement.

Theyre really only good for looking at though. They are extremely uncomfortable.

Even when they had the highest end version of the F4 (with the italian leather seat and what not) it was much to expensive and you got little performance out of it. The same is the case with the other F4's there is much to be desired.

I'd pick a Ducati over this anyday.
