When MV Agusta announced that it was working with automobile design house Zagato, it left us scratching our heads. What were these two Italian brands up to? The teaser image did little to help narrow down that answer too.
We might have another piece to the puzzle though, as Swiss outfit AcidMoto has a source who is saying that the special motorcycle will be based off the MV Agusta F4 – Varese’s venerable superbike.
That news probably doesn’t give us any more clarity than we had before, but it is interesting to see the aged four-cylinder platform getting the Zagato custom treatment.
MV Agusta CEO Giovanni Castiglioni has made no secret that his company needs to thin out its three-cylinder options, while investing in a new four-cylinder platform.
MV Agusta’s superbike racing program could also benefit from a new F4 race bike, though a new superbike is likely to come later down the pipe, with MV Agusta focusing first on new four-cylinder street-focused machines.
We have just under a month to wait now, before this MV Agusta / Zagato collaboration is revealed, and it’s still anyone’s guess as to what we will be seeing.
