SELLER SAYS: 2017 MV Agusta F4RC for sale. Reluctant sale due to a change of priorities. One owner since new with only 4,700km, less than 800km a year. One of only 250 in the world (#90). It has been garaged and covered all its life. Comes complete with a crate of goodies including SC pipe and ECU. This bike has 205hp off the showroom floor as standard and 212hp with SC pipe and ECU. Also included are foam stabilisers in the fuel tank to improve the already awesome handling. This bike would be arguably one of the best I have ridden in 50 years of riding. Contact Richard on 0428 524 066 (Milpara, Albany – Western Australia).

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: Let’s be honest — there is no shortage of fast, sweet-handling sports bikes on the market. Whether you prefer your bikes to be new or second-hand, Japanese or European, finding a motorcycle that sets your pulse racing and your driver’s license quivering is not hard. Gosh, a budget of $10k will get you a nice used Honda CBR1000RR which has more power and better handling than you will ever use. Step your budget up to $25k and you can have a Ducati 1299 Panigale. So why would you spend $54k on his bike? We can think of lots of reasons, but there are two that stand out — exclusivity and investment potential. Yes, MV’s greatest sports bike is an unbelievable track weapon or weekend superstar; but that’s a given. Of course it is. The folks at MV know that performance underpins sports bike credibility. The extra dosh buys the MV badge and, with it, the MV back-story. You are part of a very exclusive club of people who own one of the most desirable pieces of two-wheeled machinery ever made. And just as important, you own something that will be treasured for many years to come — and that means there’s a reasonable prospect it will hold its value and possibly appreciate as the years go by. I won’t re-tell the MV Agusta story here, but it’s a wonderful tale built on racetrack success and sports bike pride. This glorious F4RC of Richard’s looks to be a superb example of a rare and magnificent machine. (I succumbed to the MV Agusta allure a few years ago and bought myself a 910R Brutale, just to have a taste. Read about it here.)

TESTIMONIAL. Sold on The Bike Shed Times!
“Please list the Ducati Monster as SOLD. (In 5 days, fantastic.) The bike is sold and the money in my bank – no test ride required, the new owner is flying down from Armidale tomorrow to ride the bike back. Thank you for all your help and advice. Job well done.” – Malcolm, NSW
