This is the MV Agusta F4 Lewis Hamilton Special Edition LH44

MV Agusta have released their teased F4 LH44 collaboration with Lewis Hamilton. Think existing F4 with sparkly bits, new paint and a new exhaust.

Based around the Mv Agusta F4 RC, the new F4LH44 is essentially the same bike as before but with a lot of extra bling thrown at it; the most obvious of which is the new, candy apple red paint scheme with co-ordinating white frame. There are also a load of new carbon trinkets, an Alcantara seat, blacked-out engine block and a smoked screen (a first for an F4 production model apparently).

Outside of the cosmetics, the performance changes to the bike are a little more interesting. There’s new suspension courtesy of an Öhlins USD NIX 30 TiN-coated fork setup at the front and the same company’s TTX 36 rear shock, a new titanium exhaust replacing the regular four pipe setup for a single, rear under-seat exhaust and a new control unit that is said to have boosted the raw power of the F4 by 7hp to 212hp.

Speaking about the new machine, the Forumula 1 champion seems particularly pleased with the outcome,
“I am very excited to continue my partnership with MV Agusta. I love working with Giovanni and the guys at MV Agusta, their passion for engineering and attention to detail produces stunning, original looking bikes.

My projects with MV Agusta are a great way to combine my love of riding bikes with my interest in creative design process so I am very much involved with the CRC design team throughout.

I am particularly excited to introduce my new bike, the F4 LH44. It looks quite stunning and I had the pleasure of riding on track a few weeks ago in Italy, it feels great and combines the best of both worlds, a race bike for the road! There will be 44 bikes produced so I hope the lucky owners will love it as much as I do”

And how much will this limited edition F4 set potential buyers back? Cost is said to be around €50,000 for one of the ‘limited to 44’ edition models.

    Lewis Hamilton…Why not a Leon Camier edition instead? 50k euros for a bike with a F1 drivers name on it because it will sell more of the limited edition than a lesser known WSBK rider that has been all in riding and developing that platform for MV. Right, anything for a buck is all it’s about.
