Over the last few years, all attention from MV Agusta has been on releasing and expanding their fantastic three-cylinder range, meaning their four-cylinder bikes have been a little neglected. That’s all set to change now with Giovanni Castiglioni, CEO of MV Agusta confirming that an all new F4 superbike will be the first model to roll out with the upgraded platform next year.
The annual “Friends of Claudio” event in memory of MV Agusta founder and Giovanni’s father Claudio Castiglioni gives Italian fans an opportunity to meet with the leaders and engineers of MV Agusta up close and in person.
At the event it was confirmed that the focus of MV Augsta next year will be on its liter range of machines which will incorporate a brand new 1,000cc engine which we assume will remain as an inline four. The F4 is definitely in need of a big overhaul, having only had moderate upgrades and modifications since its initial release in 2006.
In addition to the F4 superbike there will be an updated Brutale and a third as yet unspecified model – supposedly a crossover of some sort. We’d be guessing a larger Turismo Veloce to take on the likes of Ducati’s Multistrada and the BMW S 1000 XR.
