F4s in say 22 - 25 years time?

People,

I have an F4 2000 model which is in excellent condition.

It is not an Oro model and has been tinkered about a bit in that some of the original parts have been replaced with decent quality Carbon Fibre.

I'm not considering selling it but also keep an eye on the second hand prices to keep an idea of how much it's worth.

I bought it in the UK in 2009 with one owner at 6000 miles for £4800 and now with a second owner (me) and around 10,000 miles might be worth £6500 on a good day.

This says to me that excellent condition MV's are going up. I have 4 beautiful Rolex watches which despite being in demand do not seem to rise in price.

I would appreciate peoples thoughts on the long term price projections of second hand MVs in excellent condition.

Cheers





Sub

20 years from now the remaining excellent condition original Cagiva MV Agustas will have become quite desirable to the motorcycle collectors. Surviving limited edition models more so.

Take a look at the 70s MV Americas 750s......

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Hey Sub,

I´m not an expert, but rarely one knows what item will increase its value over the years. Limited versions are more likely to do so, but still not certain.
Enjoy the bike, enjoy the watches.

Cheers,

Rui.

Cheers gents. I thought about the MV America although I don't know if the F4 will have as much collectors value??

Like I say I have some nice watches (including a 'standard' stainless Rolex Submariner and a 'bi-colour' Submariner) both being excellent watches however they don't seem to have appreciated as much as the big MV which always raises a smile when I walk into the garage

nobody knows. Depends on the buyer, and condition. If you had one of the few non limited ones in great shape, and there is a buyer who is looking to relive that experience, then you may be able to fetch over even a limited edition price in lesser condition. Condition/rarity, demand. the collector may be hell bent for a regular model in original unfettered shape, the collector may want a well used/loved one that he/she can recover. I think the value something can go up even beyond its material worth by "sentimental" factors, the emotional part that the material cannot explain sometimes. I hope that someday , those passionate about my vintage bike also have deep pockets! haha

It may also depend on how many good examples are left, although with bikes like the MV, they are generally quite lovingly looked after, and don't do many miles.
Mine was 10 yrs old with 8,000 miles, 6 owners when she flew into my arms. An average of 800 miles per year.

If she is still in my hands I think her condition will be good, but the mileage will be high in 25 yrs. Come to think on it, I wonder if I will still be able to ride in 25 yrs?
Will be still be able to buy petrol then, what with oil running low by then? It'll be £15 per litre. These bikes will be for show in livings rooms only, a relic from the bygone petrol age.

We were running out of oil in the 70s. There is oil on a scale we cannot comprehend.....

Who knows how our world will look like in 25 years ?
I would think that our idiocracied governments will have lowered emissions by than so that we will run with e-scooters, if at all.
On the other hand will be bikers might have died out in our western world.
Traffic regulations, sky high insurances made motorcycling not affordable for the young generation.
If the youngsters get off of their arses from tablets, smartphones, desktops than they look for driving a car.
Plus this young fellows mostly don't even know anymore how mechanics are working and even lesser how to repair anything.
It is a through away society we live in.
I can't see a thriving motorcycle market in 25 years.
The average riders age is almost 50 by now.
The collectors of exotic motorcycles are the same age or even older retirees.
All this collections will be one day for sale.
Might we in the fifties have than a chance to fetch a few good deals on our dream bikes before they close the gas stations and we get gasoline at the drugstore in homöopathic quantities.
Than again are we than still able to move this machines ?
Not to mention ride this bikes.
Sorry but I do not think that things will head in another direction.
Unless there is a revolution, another world war or a catastrophy in biblic dimension.

In 25 years I will be 81!
Not entirely sure I will be riding my F4 then.
But.....I don't buy any vehicle as an investment.
There will be plenty of sport riders in the future, there are so many under 35 now.
