We’re stealing this description from the MV Agusta F4 Senna Factory Press Release:
Following the launch of the SENNA marque, Ayrton [Senna] and Chairman Claudio Castiglioni had an encounter. Recognizing the principles and passions they had in common, the two started up a close collaboration and deep friendship. Today, their partnership, in accordance with the SENNA Foundation, has led to the development of a new motorcycle that preserves the characteristics that made Ayrton the most beloved driver of all times.
The MV Agusta staff has designed an evolution of the F4 inspired by the same enthusiasm of its Chairman. An enthusiasm that not only derives from the friendship with the driver, but primarily from the knowledge that the Foundation’s purpose is to assist over 300,000 Brazilian youths by contributing 100% of its proceeds to the development and implementation of social programs.
Given the special nature of the project, MV engineers developed the model based on the high performance SPR version…the engine has been improved and made lighter in many of its basic components: amongst the modification to the head, new features have been included to the timing system, intake pipes, and the new combustion chamber. The head/cylinder group now includes “MAHLE” pistons, molded with jets of cooling oil, which enable the limiter’s threshold to reach 13,900 rpm, while the crankshaft has been lightened considerably. Another significant development has concerned the primary drive, now shortened and equipped with a clutch reinforced with a brand new gearbox assembly with closer ratios.
Work on the frame has included new, exclusive color combinations and specially designed graphics, as well as numerous carbon fiber components which embellish the technical/design content and consequently enhance the objectives common to the two marques.
We hope you enjoyed that little history lesson. The SENNA was expected to produced 140 horsepower at the crank with the EPROM and optional race only exhaust.
It also came with 50mm Marzocchi titanium nitride-treated forks, and a dash of carbon fiber in the airbox runners.
This example (VIN: ZCGF401BC2V004767) is #43 of the 300 that were built worldwide.
The owner (a close friend of Adam’s) acquired this MV in 2014 in New Hampshire, and we put it up in the Vault at our headquarters in Marina del Rey, California about 18 months ago.
Cosmetically, this exquisite MV is pretty close to perfect. We note some minor imperfections in the left side carbon fiber heel guard, though our White Glove service can source a replacement for you if desired.
The sale includes the factory stand, though it has some marks on it.
It has been stored dry in a private collection for much of its life, though the seller states that “it was fully gone through prior to storage with new fuel tank couplers. We did everything on it and then it was fogged for long term storage.”
If you plan on riding this Senna, know that the tires are original to the bike (2001 date code), so you’ll want to replace them, but otherwise it just needs some fuel in the tank!
