2. MV Agusta F4


Tamburini credits the MV Agusta F4 as his most satisfying motorcycle. Working with a blank sheet on which to revive MV Agusta from scratch, Tamburini became so ill during the early stages of the F4’s design he required hospitalization. As such, he worked frantically, constantly sketching in his notepad as he was worried he might not wake up on the other side of surgery. Of course, he came out the other side just fine, and with newfound vigor, the F4 became his obsession. When it came out in 1997, the F4 dropped jaws. The sharp lines, smooth curves, and distinctive quad exhaust pipes were simply stunning. So much so that even current MV Agusta F4s (and even the F3) are just evolutions of Tamburini’s original design. Because, as the saying goes, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
