Back in 2006, moto-loving gearheads caught the first sight of MV Agusta’s astounding F4CC at EICMA, and they were absolutely blown away. Bearing Claudio Castiglioni’s initials, the Italian gladiator underwent a short production run of only 100 units, which were priced at an eye-watering $120,000 a pop.

Besides the motorcycle itself, those who purchased this exotic marvel also received a Trussardi leather jacket and a special-edition timepiece from the Swiss brand Girard-Perregaux. Underneath its carbon-fiber bodywork, the F4CC hides a liquid-cooled 1,078cc inline-four powerplant, with as many as sixteen valves and a sizeable compression ratio of 13.0:1.

When its titanium crankshaft turns at about 12,000 rpm, the fuel-injected mill can deliver up to 200 raging ponies, while a peak torque output of 92 pound-feet (125 Nm) will be summoned at 9,000 spins. This force reaches the bike’s chain-driven rear Marchesini hoop by means of a six-speed transmission, leading to an insane top speed of 195 mph (314 kph).

A chromium-molybdenum trellis skeleton holds everything in place, and its front end rests on beefy 50 mm (two-inch) inverted Marzocchi forks. On the other hand, rear suspension duties are taken good care of by a race-spec Sachs monoshock and a single-sided magnesium alloy swingarm.

Agusta’s rarity features dual 310 mm (12.2 inches) brake discs up north and a single 210 mm (8.3 inches) module at six o’clock, all of which are paired with four-piston Brembo calipers. If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t have a problem with spending supercar money on a two-wheeler, then this is your lucky day!

The F4CC pictured above is listed on Bring A Trailer with a negligible 161 miles (260 km) on the clock, sporting Pirelli’s high-grade Diablo Rosso III tires. At present, the highest bid is placed at 19,000 bucks, though it’s reasonable to assume that it doesn’t even get close to meeting the reserve price. The Swiss watch and Trussardi jacket are also included in the sale, and the auctioning deadline is set for December 10.
