2003 MV Agusta F4 Ago
September 17th, 2002​

Giacomo Agostini and MV Agusta forged a legend in motorcycling. An association born in 1965 thanks to the intuition of Count Domenico Agusta that saw in the youngster from Bergamo a valid team mate that could support the unforgettable Mike Hailwood. In reality, Agostini never played that role but instead immediately imposed himself to the eyes of the passionate fans like the rising star of motorcycling. A few months were sufficient to see him overcome his team mate during the Nurburgring GP.

This victory, obtained on the circuit considered to be the most difficult of that time, marked the beginning of an era that lasted seventeen years, in which period the union Agostini-MV won fourteen world titles, ten victories in the Tourist Trophy and over 250 race wins.

But Agostini is not just the rider with most victories in the history of motorcycling. Ago is an ambassador for motorcycle racing and an ambassador for MV Agusta. Favoured by natural pleasantness ennobled by a film star-like smile and look, the man from Bergamo has learned to create and conserve universal and untouchable popularity.

From unbeatable rider to a star of the big screen, from successful team manager (with the Cagiva GP) to disputed television opinionist, Agostini today is also the inspirer of the new F4 AGO, a motorcycle destined to become a tribute to motorcycle history.

The F4 Ago is a motorcycle of irresistible attraction, dominated by technology and enriched by prestigious components capable of offering concepts recalling the feats of MV Agusta and Giacomo Agostini.

Coloured obviously in red and silver and configured only as a single seater, the bike materializes at the eyes of fans as a concentration of historical citations.

The attention of the passionate is immediately directed towards the presence of Agostini’s race number found on the nostalgic yellow stickers placed on the side fairings. From here begins the voyage into the glorious past of the invincible “record machines” of Agostini’s era and the insurmountable technical features of present day MV AGUSTA. The rediscovered historic brand placed triumphantly onto the airbox is an invitation to climb aboard. The airbox itself is coloured obviously in red like those used by Agostini, and is coated in precious alcantara whilst boasting the F4 brand eembroidered onto the upper cushion.

From the riding position, where anyone can find the correct settings thanks to the new adjustable footrests, one enjoys the most gratifying view possibly desired: new rev counter with white background and blue figures which includes Agostini’s signature, and on the steering head (which is painted in sparkling titanium like all the other parts in aluminium) is found the 18kt gold plate, personalized for every single client with their name and motorcycle’s serial number. From this angle it is still possible to distinguish the red that emerges from the frame, this also being a tribute to the illustrious memory of the GP motorcycles.

In this all Italian motorcycle-rider union, the mentioning of the Tricolore could not be left out and therefore finds its proud place on the single seater tail end, where the identifying logo of this spectacular MV Agusta creation is found. The 500 owners that will have the privilege to share the emotion of owning an F4 AGO will have, other than the motorcycle cover and a paddock center stand, a certificate of authenticity signed by Giacomo Agostini to assure consumer protection for this limited edition.

The F4 AGO was born with the objective of positioning itself at the highest level of the 2003 MV Agusta range. For this reason, the motorcycle is enriched in the chassis department by exclusive accessories aimed at optimizing the dynamic characteristics offered by the new Evolution engine which has 137 hp.

The principal modifications are:

The new design Marchesini wheels in forged aluminium alloy

Single block “Nissin Racing” six piston brake calipers.

Front disc brakes (310mm) with aluminium flange (derived from the Serie Oro).

Marzocchi 50mm fork embellished by the titanium nitride treatment.

Sachs Racing shock absorber with double adjustment for compression. (high and low speed)

The F4 AGO is powered by the new EVO3 engine which has 137 hp. This unit, other than having an increased power output of 11 hp, has been subjected to modifications that reduce mechanical noise and exhaust emissions. The AGO version differs only by the better external finish, and in particular:

Clutch cover painted in MV AGUSTA grey.

Sprocket cover painted in MV AGUSTA grey.

Phonic wheel cover painted in MV AGUSTA grey.

Silencers with titanium shining treatment.

The distinguishing features of the F4 AGO are:

Yellow number plate

Historical MV AGUSTA logo on the tank

Front mudguard, tank protection and single seater with the “tricolore” logo

Ago logo

Grills placed in the fairing outlets.

Frame coloured in red.

Seat in red alcantara with the F4 brand embroidered on the upper cushion.

Adjustable footrests

Sparkling titanium painting on:
• Handlebar balancer
• Swingarm support plates
• Single-sided swingarm.

Titanium treatment for:
• Marchesini wheels
• Steering plates
• Adjustable footrests
• Saddle support frame
• “Organ pipe” silencers

Gold plate on the steering head which indicates the serial number and the owner’s name.

Instrumentation equipped with rev counter white background and blue figures bearing Giacomo Agostini’s signature.

Carbon Fibre:
• Front mudguard
• Ignition switch cover
• Left and right side panels for the airbox
• Rear chain guard protection
• Lower chain guard protection

in fact, there are no f4 750 ago, just a few which were on different motorcycle show!! it was when mv was in big troubles!! the 750 ago at the beginning had the spr engine (and not the simple evo3) , and limited to 300 , but with the launch of the 1000 when mv goes better , they decide to pass directly the 750 ago to 1000 for his production which had never start before!! that's why the 300 spr engine in more which was for the 750 ago were placed on the f4 750 sr and sr america!!!

OK, good background :) The SR comes with AGO signature on the Tachometer face (Red on White). I guess also that the 750 speedo couldn't be used on the 1000, hence lumped onto the SR as well?
The 1000 has blue on white
