BaT Auction: 182-Mile 2008 MV Agusta F4 R312

This post was originally published on this site

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.

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.
