This 2008 MV Agusta F4 R312 is one 150 imported to the US when new and shows just 182 miles. Based on the Italian manufacturer’s F4 1000 R, the limited-edition R312 was equipped with a 998cc inline-four making an additional nine horsepower and was named for its factory-reported top speed of 312 kph (193 mph). This example comes equipped with an MV Agusta Corse titanium exhaust and associated software. It has remained with the same owner in a private collection for much of its life, and received a fluid change earlier this year. This F4 is offered by the selling dealer with factory books, tools, and accessories on a clean Louisiana title.
The F4 was designed by Massimo Tamburini, who gained recognition for his development of the Ducati 916. Three color combinations were available for the limited-edition R312, with this example finished in a pearl white and black paint scheme with red accents. A CRC tank protector has been installed.
Forged Y-spoke Brembo wheels come wrapped in their original tires according to the seller. The F4 employs a carbon-nitrided 50mm Marzocchi fork and radially-mounted Brembo Monobloc brakes up front, while a single-sided swingarm features a Sachs shock in the rear.
Instrumentation includes a 17k-rpm tachometer and a digital odometer showing 182 miles.
Power output for the R312 was rated at 183 horsepower at 13,000 rpm and 85 foot-pounds of torque at 10,000 rpm. The 9-horsepower increase over the standard F4 1000 R was attributed to revised camshafts, larger titanium valves, bigger throttle bodies, and longer intake horns. This example is also equipped with an MV Agusta Corse titanium exhaust system and a corresponding Race EPROM. A service in October 2018 included a fluid change, oil filter replacement, and general inspection.
The bike is sold with an owner’s manual, two keys, a factory tool kit, and an MV Agusta rear wheel stand.
