What to do with a spare $33,000

Buy one of these: the 2012 MV Agusta F4 RR.

It doesn’t look much changed from last year, but under the plastic, it’s a new beast with an ultra-short-stroke 1000cc Inline-4 that MV says will release 201HP.  No top-speed-limiting governors for the Italian chaps at MV. The engine puts at the top of the superbike heap in terms of power.

Supporting the new bike are top-shelf Öhlins suspension components, and forged aluminum wheels.

Everything is top-of-the line on this bike. Sadly, that includes the price.

  1. Extremely nice – but for that price you can probably get both a BMW S1000RR and a Kawasaki ZX-10R…Ouch.

  2. Dale,

    I picked up your Blue and Gray wordpress theme, and is up and running. Couldnt find your email, but wanted to say thanks! Just playing with it right now.

  3. It IS a handsome devil, but I’m with otter. At 33k it’d better be a damned fine machine. At this stage in my life I would want the three or five bike you could get from as many countries in place of that.
