The Appeal

The MV Agusta F4 750 was a produced from 1999 to 2004 in various trims. It was said to be the bike that resurrected the MV Agusta brand, following MV’s withdrawal from racing in 1976 after the death of Count Domenico Augusta, the brand’s founder, in 1971. Purchased by the global motorcycle conglomerate Cagiva in 1992, MV Agusta was brought back to life with the F4. This new four-cylinder F4 began development within Cagiva’s racing development brand CRC, but it eventually took Ferrari Engineering in Modena to finish the prototype. Upon completion of the prototype, MV’s engineers finalized the engine and chassis design in preparation for production.

Derived from the early ‘90s Ferrari Formula One engines, the 750F4’s production version of the 4-cylinder DOHC 16-valve 749.5 cc engine produced right around 126 hp at 12,500 RPM, propelling the F4 to a top speed of right around 162 mph. While the initial design was assisted by Ferrari, the finalized MV Agusta engine was quite different in the production bikes, while still utilising the signature radial valves. 

This particular F4-S is presented impeccably with a fresh professional respray in its original colours and is reportedly mechanically in perfect order. With just under 11,000 miles of use in its lifetime, being completely up to date with maintenance, and in stunning visual condition, this MV is ready to ride as often as you like. 

The History and Paperwork

  • V5c present and current
  • MOT valid until 13th August 2024, no advisories
  • V5C states “Vehicle has been salvaged because the estimated cost of commercial repair was more than the value of the vehicle.” However, we saw no indication of why this could be, other than a small mark seen on the frame as pictured, and have no historic knowledge of the causing issue from the current owner, as the bike is in excellent visual condition currently
  • Modifications include: 
    • Owner states aftermarket “chip” fitted but has not been used since install
    • Mannpower quad-tip exhaust system fitted, sounds incredible and not exceedingly loud. Owner states original exhaust system will come with sale. 
  • Originally purchased for light pleasure use in 2016, it eventually found use as a display showpiece for their main office; this bike saw very little use during the current ownership and was mainly stored inside
  • Recent servicing and light recommissioning and check-up on 14th August 2023:
    • New battery fitted
    • New front brake pads
    • Oil and filter change
    • New fuel pump O-ring
    • Bulb replacement
  • Benefits from an all-panel-off professional respray to the original paint scheme, where the whole bike was stripped and everything that was red and grey has been repainted and fitted with new decals, reportedly costing around £2,500
  • Reportedly looked after by the same mechanic since 2011
  • Comes with bike stand as pictured
  • The current vendor reports that the bike was bought but never used, instead was used as a Office Art Work until a couple of months ago
  • The current vendor also tells us that after talking to  specialist and the previous owner, the bike was damaged around 2005/6 but only plastic parts only, ie Fairing etc , there was no frame, wheel or engine damage. The bike was repaired with replacement MV parts only and used up to 2011 including 2 trips to the TT among other simular journeys.

The Exterior 

  • Showcases the original paintwork, wheels, emblems & trim components
  • Seats and leatherwork in incredible condition, with stitchwork in equal condition
  • Paintwork in near-showroom condition

  • headlight lenses in bright and clean condition
  • Rear lights in very good condition with no signs of fading or fogging
  • Front and rear tires in good condition with plenty of tread remaining
  • Original wheels in near perfect condition, with only small signs of use present

The Mechanics 

  • Owner states all electronics and mechanics working as they should
  • Engine visual condition is in above average condition for the age, protected by fairings
  • Maintenance up to date, owner states no known issues
  • Owner states 4-cylinder DOHC 16-valve 749.5 cc engine and transmission runs and shifts smoothly and has incredibly strong acceleration, exhaust system sounds excellent and not too loud
  • Owner states the bike stops, starts, shifts, and handles as good as expected
  • Owner states suspension works as good as when new
  • No smoke or strange noises observed, engine has healthy growl


As the bike that resurrected the nameplate, this F4-S is an excellent opportunity to purchase a legendary motorcycle in immaculate condition. While it is indeed a road bike, it is highly capable and could just as easily find itself on your local racetrack for a spirited track event or perhaps even be the base for a competitive track bike. One thing is for sure, when you twist the throttle and bear down on this one, there’s absolutely no denying the MV Agusta F4-S is a formidable performance machine. 

Purchased as a low-mileage collector’s piece, for your weekend-warrior fun runs, or perhaps even for a longer tour, this bike is fit for purpose and is mechanically ready to take on the miles in any way you see fit.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
