History in motion
A modern classic, the F4 set a new paradigm in the world of sports motorcycling. That typical MV feeling; the jaw-dropping performance; the speed; the revolutionary design that redefined the concept of a sports motorbike.
The four-cylinder engine of the entire F4 range is the highly advanced "Corsa Corta" (Short Stroke): the piston’s diameter is 79 mm, while the stroke is contained at 50,9 mm. The titanium intake and exhaust valves utilise a twin spring systerm. The pistons are forged aluminum and the oil circuit has been redesigned.
