The all-new, 2010 MV Agusta F4 is faster, lighter, smoother, cheaper and just all-round a better motorcycle. But, it’s not the original. Considered by many the most beautiful bike ever made, Massimo Tamburini penned the original F4 way back in 1998. The bike you see here will be the last of that original F4 ever produced.

The appropriately titled Edizione Finale is based on the 1078 RR 312. That bike was a melding of standard F4 and the unobtainable F4 CC, adopting the latter’s 190bhp/91.4lb-ft 1078cc engine for a top speed in excess of 194mph and more modern components like Brembo Monoblock radial brake calipers.

Only 30 units of the Edizione Finale were ever produced and all were shipped to Japan. The model is distinguished by a numbered plaque, unique badging and the quilted brown saddle with red stitching.

We’ve written extensively about MV Agusta, reviewed the 2010 MV Agusta F4 (spoiler: it’s awesome), interviewed Giovanni Castiglioni and shown you the new hotness that is the MV Agusta F3.

    I have always liked this design, but I personally believe that the Britten V1000 is still the most beautiful bike ever made.

    man i was so close to buying a brutale – i lover MV, wish i could have to pricey bikes in the shed!!

    I can’t believe they are wheeling out another version of the old bike. Must have a lot of spare parts. The 1000R’s and 312′s can be had real cheap, so I doubt this will be moving off the floor quickly. I haven’t ridden the new F4 but have the 1090 Brutale, which is a world better than the old ones. Surprised they are going backwards. They should (and no doubt will) be making some special editions of the new model.

    Any chance HFL takes this opportunity to speak with Il Signore Tamburini himself? I’d be curious to know how he feels about this one, after all those years.
