Born of the ardent enthusiasm of one man, Claudio Castiglioni, for sports motorcycles and created by the most ingenious two-wheel designer Massimo Tamburini, the world came to know the MV Agusta F4 in the autumn of 1997. After 20 years of oblivion, the legendary marque for which Carlo Ubbiali, Mike Hailwood and Giacomo Agostini triumphed, made its comeback with this 4-cylinder in line front gear masterpiece, the classic “architecture” of the glorious Italian school that comprised GRB, CNA, OPRA, Rondine, Gilera, Benelli and MV. With mechanics, cyclistics and body covered by numerous patents, another 10 models followed one after the other that always moved the qualitative limits of world motorcycle production further forward. A legend which, among a thousand mishaps, continues. Those in the know have no doubts: the “most beautiful motorcycle in the world” is still the MV Agusta F4. This book, the first to be devoted to this subject, recounts this by now legendary story.
