At EICMA 2006, the MV Agusta Group will present a collection of new items that underline the company mission statement and the nature of work carried out at the Varese factory as being that of the leader in this sector with an incomparable and unique blend of style and design.
These results are the outcome of constant research and technological innovation that has so marked the progress made in recent times. All these factors have involved serious and highly interesting work but in reality it is the bike’s performance on the road that will demonstrate just how successful we have been. As always, MV Agusta is synonymous with technical excellence going hand in hand with unparalleled style.
The “Queen” of the show will be the MV Agusta F4 CC (Claudio Castiglioni) – a unique project to which the Managing Director of MV Agusta, Claudio Castiglioni, has put his name.
This is a motorbike that Claudio Castiglioni dreamed of and designed for himself and that encompasses all MV Agusta’s experience. Although the engine derives from the F4, it is not an evolved form but a completely new concept. The four cylinder, 1.078cc, 198 CV engine has open titanium exhaust pipes that meet Euro 3 specifications and the number of new components in the engine is quite remarkable.
The upper part of the block has been radically changed to accommodate the new oil-cooled generator. There are new connecting rods and the pistons have been lightened and shortened. The block too is lower and the head houses titanium valves.
Top speed is auto-limited to 315 kph (195 mph) by tyre specifications. Only 100 models of the handbuilt MV F4 CC will be made and the price will be in the region of 100,000 euros. The bike will come with superb accessories including a Trussardi leather jacket and a Girard Perregaux watch made exclusively for the 100 proud new owners of an F4 CC...
Alongside the MV Agusta F4 CC will be the sensational Brutale 910 R Italia that Claudio Castiglioni sees as another sure winner. In this case it is not just a matter of technology but of support for a football team and superstition.
As happened in 1982 just a few days before the final of the World Cup in Germany, the Managing Director of MV Agusta Motor S.p.A., Claudio Castiglioni, this year again promised the Italian players a specially dedicated Brutale. Thus we have the Brutale 910 R Italia that features a colour scheme based on the Italian Flag and the team jerseys.
Only 100 models will be made and those not awarded to the team players will be available for collectors and MV customers.
MV Agusta will also present a new orange colour scheme for the Brutale 910 and pearl/black/white for the Brutale 910R and F4 1000R. Another interesting new colour scheme of black/gold will be on show on the Cagiva Mito 125.
