MV Agusta released a second video teasing the F4Z, its collaboration with Italian coach builder Zagato. The new video confirms some of the assumptions we made after seeing the first video, while offering the first full glimpses of the bike.
Though it is based on the F4, the one-off project breaks away from traditional elements of MV Agusta’s superbike. The fairing rises up to a shark-nosed face housing a single round headlight while the F4’s iconic underseat organ-pipes have been replaced by an underslung exhaust. The red and silver combination are very MV Agusta, only with much more emphasis on the red – enough so that it reminds me a lot of the Honda VFR1200F.
Above the headlight is a floating windscreen while at the other end of the bike, the seat leather extends back over the entire tail hump.
Though we can pretty much see the entire motorcycle now, we’ll have to wait until Sept. 4 for the official unveiling.
