Good News: This was an incredibly popular listing!
Bad News: The surge of traffic we saw at the end overwhelmed our server and it was not able to keep up, preventing many people from bidding or even seeing the listing.
We are working on this right now to address the issue and make sure it doesn’t happen again, and we are extending the end of this auction to Friday, September 18th (tomorrow) to allow interested parties a fair shot at this wonderful MV.
We sincerely apologize for the trouble and appreciate your understanding. Thanks for making us more popular than we could have imagined! We will be reaching out to all bidders via email, but if you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com
Additional photos of this MV Agusta F4 R 312 are available here for your perusal.
You wouldn’t be alone if you though the MV Agusta F4 was the world’s most beautiful motorcycle – but styling is subjective. What can’t be argued is speed, and the F4 R 312 was, when released, the world’s fastest motorcycle. That’s where the “312” in the name comes from – it’s the MV’s top speed in kilometers. In miles, it’s 193.87. Whatever the unit, it’s an impressive number!
It was exclusive, too – in their First Ride review, Cycle World said “just 150 of these homologation specials will be shipped to our shores to quality the bike for AMA competition.”
The extra oomph needed to set a speed record came from 30mm titanium intake valves, 48mm throttle bodies, and modified camshafts – all of which added 9 horsepower (total of 183 hp and 85 lb-ft of torque).
There were three options for colors: black with grey touches, white with black touches, or the Corsa red with silver touches that we have today. This example (VIN: ZCGAKFGM28V100629) just came out of the original owner’s private collection.
It had been with the original owner until this month, and the current owner acquired it via an estate sale. The seller has verified that it starts and runs, but considering the mileage he has not ridden it. As he puts it, it has “two keys, all of the books, and no stories.”
The seller adds that he owns an enclosed car transport company and has a trip scheduled to Florida on September 19th so he’d be willing to transport it to that state for free. Have any questions about this listing? Let us know in the comments below!
