MV Agusta F4Z revealed

Published: 01 September 2016

This one-off MV Agusta F4Z has been built by famous Italian styling house Zagato for a Japanese collector who already owns rare Zagato cars.

Low resolution images of the bike were mysteriously leaked last week but this is the first time proper images have been released showing the bike in full.

The bike has been a based on an MV Agusta F4 RR which is the most powerful and highest specification bike in the MV Agusta range.


There are no plans to put this bike into production as it’s truly a one-off built to the exact specifications of the owner who is at this time remaining unnamed.

The MV Agusta F4Z’s bodywork was designed and engineered by the Zagato team and built with materials including aluminium and carbon fibre.

Compared to the production MV Agusta F4, the F4Z features an entirely different bodywork. Some parts had to be adapted and re-engineered, others fully replaced by components that were made specially: intake manifolds, fuel tank, battery and the exhaust system.

The MV Agusta press release explains: “The design team of the Zagato Atelier had to tackle the challenge of creating a bike that would interpret the lifestyle of the customer, a young Japanese businessman, president of a holding with interests in the fashion and publishing sectors.

“The starting point was the notion that a motorbike expresses its owner’s lifestyle a lot more than a car. Therefore, it was essential to know and understand the character, passions and wishes of the person to whom the bike was destined.

“The collector or investor who turns to the Zagato Atelier requesting an exclusive piece is certainly someone with a strong passion. The love for bikes of the client dates back to the Eighties, when he bought his first motorcycle and started to customise it with his own hands.

“It was his visceral passion that stimulated the designers’ creativity. He didn’t want anything modern, fashionable, but something that could instead keep its value and appeal. What he wanted was a motorbike that wasn’t comparable to any other, that was classic, but always up to date and with a timeless design.”
