IT’S billed as the world’s most ex­pen­sive mo­tor­cy­cle and at a price tag of $185,000 we don’t doubt it.

The MV Agusta F4 CC is named af­ter the Pres­i­dent of MV Agusta, Italy, Clau­dio Castiglioni.

The Aus­tralian dis­trib­u­tor for MV Agusta has man­aged to get hold of the very last F4 CC in the world – num­ber 84 to be ex­act.

Only 100 of the exclusive mo­tor­cy­cles have been built, one for Clau­dio Castiglioni and the other 99 for the rest of us.

MV Agusta is recog­nised as the world’s most pre­mium mo­tor­cy­cle brand.

This stems from its glory days back in the 1950s, 60s and 70s with the mar­que winning 18 premier class rid­ers cham­pi­onships.

The com­pany was bought lock, stock and bar­rel by Har­ley-David­son Mo­tor­cy­cles in 2009 for a re­ported $108 mil­lion.

The F4 CC fea­tures an up-spec en­gine to 1078cc, 200hp, rated to 315km/h and an abun­dance of tech­ni­cal up­grades.

It comes with a lux­u­ri­ous F4 CC Trus­sadi leather jacket and Gi­rard-Per­re­gaux watch which is in­di­vid­u­ally num­bered as the mo­tor­cy­cle’s pro­duc­tion num­ber.

Aus­tralian MV Agusta im­porter Paul Feeney Group man­aged to se­cure one last pro­duc­tion F4 CC ma­chine.

Feeney has al­ready sold “a few” of the bikes in Aus­tralia, but re­mains coy about the ex­act num­ber.

The last F4 CC is be­ing of­fered for sale af­ter fail­ing to find a new owner at the re­cent Syd­ney Mo­tor­cy­cle Show.

Lim­ited edi­tion: This rare MV Agusta F4 CC is avail­able for $185,000.
