"The dream of every design engineer is to come up with the most beautiful sports motorcycle in the world then turn it into the fastest, most exclusive, sought after and powerful on the market. This was my dream too. I wanted to feel the reactions of a racing bike that could put every available ounce of power through to the ground beneath me and feel it lean into and hug the curves. I wanted to see perfection in every single detail of material, shape and efficiency, an example of mechanical elegance that would be immortal. I wanted a motorcycle with no half measures, a motorcycle that would combine all of the technology tried out over years of research, a motorcycle intended for connoisseurs and true lovers of motorcycles. All of this was my dream. Today it has come true." - Massimo Tamburini
"Sculpt materials and turn them into motorcycling works of art". This is the genius of Massimo Tamburini, and words like "designer" or "engineer" understate the greatness of his work. As the creator of some of most amazing machines in modern motorcycling history, Tamburini has been the force behind the most significant motorcycling event of the 20th century: the MV Agusta F4. The F4 Tamburini version is a blend of the renaissance of a legendary make of machine with all the splendor from whence it came. It is an icon demonstrating innovative technologies and elegant solutions and is destined to enter the legend of speed.
Only 300 examples of the F4-TAMBURINI will be produced worldwide. As with all other special-edition MV Agusta models (such as the F4 Serie 'd Oro, F4-SPR, and F4-AGO), the F4-TAMBURINI will only be produced once and will not be repeated. This limited edition model has sold out and is no longer available.
The heart of the F4 1000 TAMBURINI's performance is the revolutionary TSS system (Torque Shift System) based on the concept of variable intake geometry. This is an absolute first in motorcycling history and is the first time such an innovation has been fitted to a mass-produced motorcycle. The result is an engine that offers an immediate response from even the lowest revs and maximum torque positioning (83.1 ft-lbs @ 9,200 rpm) that comes in at about 1,000 rpm less than the F4-1000-S. This incredible performance is despite the use of cam profiles that are more oriented to track than road use.
