Shortly after showing off its new 2010 Brutale naked streetfighter, iconic Italian motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta will unveil its range-topping F4 sportbike at the EICMA motorcycle show. MV let loose one teaser image early last month, but details are just now starting to leak out about the 998cc inline-four screamer.

According to OmniMoto in Italy, MV Agusta has massaged its well-known powerplant with twin fuel injectors per cylinder and variable throttle bodies to put out 186 horsepower (still short of the class-leading 193-horsepower BMW S 1000 RR) at 12,900 RPM. Also on the menu are a slipper clutch and eight-way adjustable traction control.

We don't expect major chages to the bike's already attractive overall design, but a new bi-xenon take on the vertical headlight will join a longer and lighter single-sided swingarm to update things a bit. In any case, we'll get all the details soon enough when the F4 makes its official debut next week in Milan.

      Quite frankly, I liked the old exhaust tips better. Granted, the new design seems a little bit less smooth than the last, but still, these square tips kinda look out of place.

      This is gonna be good.

      There are two bikes, if I had cash, I would buy just to be able to have on display...

      MV Agusta F4 (and hopefully the new one is even better)

      and

      Benelli Tornado Tre

      But even the teaser for this new MV Agusta F4 is looking very good.

      Man...I just love Italian bikes. I miss my old Ducati 900SS. Time to clean out the garage and get something (else) red.
