Zagato has created a custom one-off based on the MV Agusta F4 and commissioned by a Japanese collector.


Unveiled at the third international Concours d’Elegance Chantilly Arts & Elegance 2016, the F4Z is the first Atelier motorbike to be created by the Milanese coachbuilder in collaboration with the bike manufacturer.

Compared to the production MV Agusta F4, the F4Z features an entirely different bodywork. Some parts had to be adapted and re-engineered, others fully replaced by components that were made specially: intake manifolds, fuel tank, battery, exhaust system.

The MV Agusta F4Z’s beautiful bodywork was designed and engineered by Zagato using aluminium and carbon fiber and consists of a limited number of relatively large panels.

This is a characteristic that, in the motorcar world, sets apart collectibles from mass produced automobiles and gives the F4Z a clean, pure look with sensuous surfaces.

The design team of the Zagato Atelier had to tackle the challenge of creating a bike that would interpret
the lifestyle of the customer, a young Japanese businessman, president of a holding with interests in the fashion and publishing sectors.

“[…] a motorbike expresses its owner’s lifestyle a lot more than a car. Therefore, it was essential to know and understand the character, passions and wishes of the person to whom the bike was destined.”

For MV Agusta, founded in 1945 by Domenico Agusta, the F4Z marks the entrance into
the niche of collectibles, built on request and expression of exclusivity.
