Question F5?

Spotted this in a UK advert,
"THis bike was commisioned by casoli racing for MV AGUSTA for the italian 2002 bike show.it was commisioned at a cost of 40.000 euros it was on the front covers of superbike magazine and italian bike magazines which i have copies of.The basis of the bike was a brand new mv f4 oro then enhanced with a big bore conversion to produce 165 BHP"

the full version can be seen here; http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C387944
can any of our esteemed colleagues shed some light on this very expensive dust magnet?


I will never do that again, again, again!

Looks like THE F5 to me! Very elusive beast, rarely seen in it's native habitat. Only one known to exist in captivity!

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

I recall many years ago that MCN tested a 750 that had been bored to 800+cc cant remember the exact capacity or if it was called F5.
They raved about it saying it cured all the faults that they percieved the 750 had.
i also seem to think the bike was built in the states

Hi, I know my dad has a folder full of articals, including quite a few on this F5. It was in Superbike mag as well as MCN newspaper ect ect, it was exiting news then.
Remember back then there was no incline that MV Agusta was even going to build an F4 1000. Casoli was one of the few company's who actually tried to raise the capacity of the F4 750.
I am quite sure this bike was UK built, my dad used to buy all his F4 stuf from Casoli. My own bike that I bought last year has a lot of Casoli parts on that the original owner added in the early noughtys. Also it was also suggested by the last and original owner that my own bike has had a big bore kit added, I don't know it it was a Casoli kit or nor do I have any idea what kit if at all. Until I take it to a rolling road or remove the head, all I have is the word of the last owner.
However if anyone wants to ask a question about the F5, I have no problem in reading all the articals my dad has and posting. Brando

Hi, I said if you ask a question then I would read the articals and post an answer. You haven't asked a question.

I think he meant that you post the artical. I must still have it too somewhere in a box...

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.
