Zagato’s Coachbuilt MV Agusta F4Z Is A Sight To Behold

The F4Z is the first ever Atelier motorcycle created by MV Agusta in collaboration with the historical Milanese coach-builder Zagato.

While it’s based on the standard mechanics of the MV Agusta F4, the F4Z was shaped by Zagato as a one-off piece for a young Japanese entrepreneur who collects Zagato cars as well as Italian motorbikes.

The bike’s bodywork was designed and engineered by Zagato and built using lightweight materials such as aluminum and carbon fiber. Compared to the production F4, the F4Z looks completely different, with some parts having to be adapted and re-engineered, while others fully replaced – such as the intake manifolds, fuel tank, battery and exhaust.

The F4Z represents two different things to the two companies that collaborated on it. For MV Agusta, it represents a departure from the rules of customization in the motorbike sector, whereas for Zagato, it represents an experience beyond the car universe, which is their traditional field of expertise.

In order to finalize the design, Zagato Atelier had to find a way to interpret the lifestyle of the customer, who also has interests in the fashion and publishing sectors. He let Zagato know that he didn’t want anything modern or fashionable, but something that wouldn’t lose its value or its appeal.

In other words, a motorbike unlike any other, a classic with a timeless design.
