MV Agusta working on a new four-cylinder motor

By Ravi Ved | on December 19, 2017

From where it was a few years back, MV Agusta is in a much better place now. Mercedes-AMG sold their 25 percent stake in the company in July and it was purchased by ComSar Invest of Russia. This has essentially handed complete control of MV Agusta Motor S.p.A. to MV Agusta Holding. With their ownership dilemma out of the way, they can now work towards the development of the brand and the products. The Italian superbike maker has already updated their three-cylinder engines in compliance with the Euro 4 norms and now they want to focus all their energies towards the four-cylinder motor.

Since the motor is in the development stages, details are not out as yet. But it is safe to assume that this new motor will make its way into the popular F4 and all its variants. Aside from the supersport offering, this same motor will also power the naked Brutale and the Dragster RR. If MV Agusta intends to mimic what they did in the three-cylinder range, we can also expect a larger capacity Turismo Veloce and Rivale.

Of course, with the limited resources in mind and from a market point of view as well, the company will not bring all of these models together. In such a case, it is kind of obvious that they will bring in the new motor in the F4 first. Expect the MV Agusta F4 with the new motor to debut at EICMA 2018.
