Ferrari motorcycle fails to sell

Published: 22 December 2008

A one off Ferrari badged bike, created by an MV Agusta design guru, failed to sell when it came up for auction.

The 900cc bike was built by David Kay Engineering as a tribute to the late Enzo Ferrari in the early 1990s.

It had an estimate of £180,000 when it came up for sale in Switzerland on Saturday, but was one of the few items which failed to sell.

The bike has a four cylinder dohc custom engine, which has a claimed output of 105bhp and top speed of 164mph.

Kay, who is well known for his work with MV Agusta, was given permission to add the prancing horse logo to the bike by Enzo’s son, Piero, in a letter which is included among the items for sale.
