2010 MV Agusta F4 first ride: 'A race bike with lights'

Published: 12 February 2010

MCN Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves is in Almeria in Spain at the launch of the new MV Agusta F4.

He’s just stepped off the bike after his first test session and sent this brief report:

‘I’ve just had my first taster of the new F4 on the road and the first impressions are that MV has made the bike considerably easier to ride. 

"The riding position is more spacious, the fuelling perfect, the gearbox smooth and there’s a decent amount of low end grunt too.

"But this is still unmistakably an F4 – it is very firm compared to Japanese 1000s, it has an aggressive exhaust note and unrelenting top end power.

"It is still undeniably a race bike with lights.’
