The new MV Agusta F4 LH44 is a reinterpretation of the F4 RC model, which is based on the Reparto Corse Superbike, the company’s most advanced racing bike. The LH44 thus inherits the Corsa Corta engine, which now cranks a maximum power of 212 hp thanks to a titanium exhaust and dedicated control unit.

“I am particularly excited to introduce my new bike, the F4 LH44,” Lewis said during the bike’s unveil. “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.”

The most striking thing about the motorcycle is its special color scheme. The candy apple red fairing and pearl white chassis make an elegant impact, enhancing the already awesome design of the F4.

The red coloring was achieved through an exclusive premium technique that utilizes ink-based paints, in contrast to traditional color bases. The pearl white that cloaks the TIG-welded hand-built CrMo steel trellis frame was also chosen to add more sophistication and detail to the bike.

But the exquisiteness extends further than its colors through a premium suspension using an Ohlins USD NIX 30 TiN-coated fork and an Ohlins TTX 36 rear shock with piggyback reservoir, both fully adjustable.

Moreover, the seat is hand made using top quality leather and Alcantara, and there are lots of dedicated components like a racing-style fuel cap, forged wheels, and a unique rear wheel nut that has been CNC machined after anodization.

Even the tires are special, with Pirelli designing some DIABLO Supercorsa SPs coming with red sidewalls and LH44 logo.

And, as Lewis Hamilton said, the MV Agusta F4 LH44 will be available in 44 units. The price was not disclosed yet, but judging on the level of exclusivity, expect to fork out over thirty thousand bucks.
