MV Agusta F4 - Page 1
in Queensland for the 3rd round of the Shell Advance Australian SuperBike
Championship I had an MV Agusta F4 at my disposal courtesy of the nice
chaps at the Paul Feeney Group, Australian distributors for MV
My first few days with the MV were spent commuting to and from the track and general round the town type of trips.
First thing that struck me when hopping onboard the MV is the fact
that the bike feels small, even a little cramped. However when you get
accustomed to the riding position you find yourself extremely comfortable.
I covered around 450 kilometres in one afternoon along some very bumpy
roads and emerged free from any soreness. Thousand
kilometre days on the MV could be accomplished quite easily. Around town
maneuvering can be a little difficult due to the limited steering lock,
but it is no worse than any comparable Ducati in this respect.
The chassis is extremely taut but the initial stroke of the suspension is just supple enough to deal with all but the hardest of hits so the MV is no kidney puncher when the road turns a little nasty.
Of course after the race weekend was over I finally had some time on my hands to go for some more spirited trots away from the confines of the metropolitan area.....Page 2
