F4 AGO: THE LEGEND BECOMES THE BIKE

Giacomo Agostini and MV AGUSTA have created a legend in the world of motorcycling. This association was born in 1965 thanks to the intuition of Count Domenico Agusta who saw in the youngster from Bergamo a valid team mate that could support the unforgettable Mike Hailwood. In reality, Agostini never played that role but instead immediately imposed himself to the eyes of the passionate fans like the rising star of motorcycling. A few months were sufficient to see him overcome his team mate during the Nurburgring Gran Prix. This victory, obtained on the circuit considered to be the most difficult of that time, marked the beginning of an era that lasted seventeen years, in which period the union Agostini-MV AGUSTA won fourteen world titles, ten victories in the Tourist Trophy and over 250 race wins. But Agostini is not just the rider with most victories in the history of motorcycling. Ago is the ambassador of our sport and of MV AGUSTA in the world. Favored by natural pleasantness ennobled by a film star-like smile and look, the man from Bergamo has learned to create and conserve universal and untouchable popularity. From unbeatable rider to a star of the big screen, from successful team manager (with the Cagiva GP) to disputed television opinionist, Agostini today is also the inspiration of the new F4 AGO, a motorcycle destined to become a tribute to motorcycle history. This limited edition model has sold out and is no longer available.

 

F4 AGO: A TRIBUTE TO HISTORY

The F4 Ago is a motorcycle of irresistible attraction, dominated by technology and enriched by prestigious components capable of offering concepts recalling the feats of MV AGUSTA and Giacomo Agostini. Coloured obviously in red and silver and configured only as a single seater, the bike represents an important chapter in history to the eyes of the fans.

The attention is immediately focused on the presence of Agostini’s race number placed on a nostalgic yellow stickers on the side fairings.
This is where the trip into the glorious past of the invincible "record machines" of Agostini's era and the insurmountable technical features of today's MV AGUSTA begins.

The rediscovered historic brand placed triumphantly onto the airbox is an invitation to ride.
The seat is coloured in red like those used by Agostini, and is coated in precious alcantara whilst boasting the F4 brand embroided onto the upper cushion.

From the riding position, where anyone can easily find the correct settings thanks to the new adjustable footrests, one enjoys the most gratifying view possibly desired: new rev counter with white background and blue figures which includes Agostini's signature, and on the steering head (which is painted in sparkling titanium like all the other parts in aluminium) an18kt gold plate with the motorcycle's serial number.

From this angle it is still possible to distinguish the red that emerges from the frame in memorial of the grand prix motorcycles.

In this Italian motorcycle-rider union, it's worthwhile mentioning the "tricolore" that has a proud place on the single-seat tail, where the identifying logo of this spectacular MV AGUSTA creation is found. The three hundred owners that have the privilege of sharing the emotion of owning an F4 AGO will receive a precious kit created for this model, a certificate of authenticity signed by Giacomo Agostini to guarantee consumer protection for this limited edition.
