Yet An­other Ital­ian Mas­ter­piece

Bike India - - Ignition -

MV AGUSTA OF ITALY ARE KNOWN FOR their ex­cel­lent mo­tor­cy­cles. Re­cently, the com­pany went one step ahead and col­lab­o­rated with the iconic Mi­lanese coach­builders, Za­gato (known for de­sign­ing some re­ally cool-look­ing cars), to cre­ate a one-off mo­tor­cy­cle for a Ja­panese en­trepreneur. This one-off mo­tor­cy­cle, based on the F4, is called the F4Z with the ‘Z’ de­not­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion with Za­gato. This is no or­di­nary cus­tom bike; in fact, it has been cre­ated to show­case the her­itage of both the afore­men­tioned brands in a pack­age that is highly de­sir­able.

For starters, the body­work of the F4Z is an amal­gam of alu­minium and car­bon-fi­bre. The bike has rel­a­tively large body pan­els, a fea­ture of­ten seen on lim­ited-edi­tion col­lectible cars. The F4Z fea­tures en­tirely new body­work, with no re­sem­blance to the ex­ist­ing F4, which sets this bike apart from the stan­dard one. Com­po­nents such as the in­take man­i­fold, fuel-tank, bat­tery and ex­haust sys­tem were de­signed specif­i­cally for the Z.

The fi­nal re­sult of the col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween MV Agusta and Za­gato gives an im­pres­sion that this is an en­tirely new mo­tor­cy­cle, and that was the aim of both the com­pa­nies. The Ja­panese col­lec­tor had re­quested ex­clu­siv­ity and unique­ness and we can at­test that MV and Za­gato have de­liv­ered quite well. Al­though this is a one-off piece made ex­clu­sively for the Ja­panese client, the F4Z just goes to show that MV Agusta have the ca­pa­bil­ity to cre­ate ex­tremely gor­geous col­lectibles and we hope that the com­pany won’t stop with the F4Z.
