You can catch the initial impressions from the guys at Motorcycle USA and Motorcycle.Com, if you’d like, or I can… Continue reading
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… Continue reading

It won’t be officially unveiled until November, but MV Agusta has released a sneak peak photo of the 2010 F4. It’s not much of a photo, and it doesn’t show much except the headlight, and the general shape of the fairing, front-on.
