MV Augusta F4 1078 RR 312 Edizione Finale – Click above for high-res image gallery

The team at MV Agusta has set about showing off the very last F4 to ever roll out of the company's shop: the F4 1078 RR 312 Edizione Finale. What it lacks in brevity of moniker it more than makes up for in straight beauty and mind-altering performance.

The Italian bikemaker has managed to squeeze a full 191 horsepower and 91 pound-feet of torque from the machine's 1,078 cc mill. The lump is borrowed from the mighty F4 CC, and as such, if you're brave enough it will carry you all the way to 194 mph. A set of Brembo Monoblock radial calipers handle stopping duties.

MV Agusta has only worked up a mere 30 examples of the F4 1078 RR 312 Edizione Finale, and each are marked by their custom quilted leather saddle and special identification plaque. If you like what you see, you better know a good importer from Japan. MV Agusta shipped every last example of this bike to the Land of the Rising Sun.

      Screw the cars, that's what I want!

      Interesting that they are sending ALL of these to the homeland of the HonYamKawaZuki.

      I would have figured at least a couple would have been made available in Europe and the US, if not elsewhere.

      Wherever it is sold, the MV Agusta F4 bikes are all absolutely gorgeous.

      @Daekwan: I have an 07 MV Senna F4 and that's Senna to you not Sienna. Just thought I should let you know. And they have indeed moved on. The F3 and the new F4 and even the new Brutale are great examples of just that :)

      That's a pretty nice bike and all MV, BUT WHERE is the 3-cylinder supersport ypu have been working on!!!
        • 3 Years Ago
        MV released the F3 a few months ago. I don't believe it is on sale yet but it looks good. Tiny.

        This post is somewhat misleading. The F4 is still being produced. This one in particular is the last of the first generation F4 that was first made in 1998. The new generation looks somewhat similar but has a long list of improvements and very little part carryover from this original machine.

        I stand corrected.

        It would appear that then this is the final edition of the 1st gen F4, before the next F4 dawns.

        Good to know.

        I wish there was a next generation of my favored bike... the R1200S or a less unobtainium covered in carbon fiber version of the HP2 Sport. Just a thing for boxer motorcycles with me. :D

      Why wont this bike die already. Its been the same design for the past 10 years and they've even sold for as much as $40k (Sienna version).

      Its been time to move on MV. Seriously.

        Are you kidding?

        this is one of the most gorgeous designs ever made on two wheels.

        Massimo Tamburini's other blockbuster was the Ducati 916, which evolved into the 998, ran from 1994-2004.

        I think we all remember that change for change's sake brought about the 999... and how well that bike did (and I didn't absolutely hate that one the way others did...) and now the 1098 gained some of the 916-998 series styling cues BACK after 999 failed.

        If it isn't broken, don't fix it. Don't dare replace it until it is absolutely sure that it is something BETTER, not just different.

        I agree, its styling is very dated, although still attractive.

        @Boxer Fanatic
        I never said the bike wasnt gorgeous. I said its been the same design for the past 10 years and its past time to move on.

        And I hate to tell you this.. but if you look at Ducati's lineup for 2003 you will see a 999. Not a 916/996/998 variants.

        Life moves on. So should motorcycles.
