I think a titanium swing arm would be a nice touch on a special edition. Corrosion resistant Magnesium does sound like a good aluminum replacement though.

Speed is relative, but fast is fast.

Titanium is the way to go in my opinion. I am sure it will add to the price tag but the quality is undeniable.

Ride fast and furious but live to ride another day!

Seconded! Just recently watched the documentary on him and his creation. Simply incredible.

Rider wheelies away from the competition down the straight! WOW!

MV already makes a Magnesium swing arm for the F4. Its on one of the Specialty F4 models. I have seen it at Fast by Ferracci showroom. Also, BST makes a carbon fiber swing arm for the Ducati 1098/1198 and I think? for the F4.
