Well, what to say ? Utterly magnificent MV Agusta F4 1000R 312, a very special and beautiful motorcycle, but with a very distinct difference to most, if not all on the market worldwide. That being, the bike has covered just 9 miles, has had 1 owner, and is in perfect, pristine, effectively new condition. Untouched, and unmodified in any way shape or form.
This bike was UK supplied by Red Dog Motorcycles of Edenbridge in Kent, well known at the time for providing 2 wheeled Italian exotica, and registered in November 2007 on a ’57’ plate. It’s buyer was a young Yorkshire based entrepreneur whom had just ordered the then new Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 in Pearlescent White. He wanted an exotic Italian motorcycle in matching Pearlescent White to go with his Lamborghini, and so this bike was bought, simple as that.
The bike was properly stored, and never ridden. We bought it directly from the original owner with 3 miles recorded, it’s test mileage. It’s effectively brand new. Upon it’s return to East Sussex, we drained the original crankcase oil, filled with fresh Motul 7100 10w/60 fully synthetic, flushed/added fresh fuel, and fitted a new battery. On turning the key, the fuel pump primed instantly, and upon pressing the starter button, the bike fired up and burbled away as if it had been used every single day of it’s life. We wanted to ride it, and so rode a 6 mile round trip to have the bike MOTd. Naturally, it rides as new, quite perfect in every sense. When returned to our workshops, the battery was disconnected, an Optimate charger hooked up, and the bike covered up.
The R 312 was so called because of MV’s claim as to it’s top speed capability, specifically ‘312’ kmh (or 194 mph) That proved a little optimistic with contemporary road tests recording mid 180s. This one is in the bespoke Pearl White and Pastel Black colour scheme with Red and Silver decals. Standard specification included Slipper clutch with EBS (Engine Braking System) Revised close ratio gearbox, Revised suspension calibration, Steel trellis framework with cast aluminium swingarm plates, Single sided swingarm, Lightweight 10 spoke Marchesini rims, Fully adjustable USD 50mm dia. Marzocchi forks, Fully adjustable Sachs rear monoshock, Brembo monobloc silver brake calipers with red lettering, Quick release body panels, seat unit, fuel tank and airbox, Patented 4-2-1-2-4 Arrow quad exhaust system, Removable cassette gearbox, Ferrari influenced motor with radial valves, and LCD/Analogue instruments.
There really is very little else to say. This is a quite possibly unique opportunity to buy a ‘new’ 312 R, one of the world’s most beautiful and exotic motorcycles, this model now many years out of production, and clearly a bike that would sit very nicely in any bike or car collection, at any financial level. A glorious machine, perfect, pristine. Just wonderful.
