MV Agusta Unveils Lewis Hamilton Approved F4 LH44 Bike
MV Agusta have finally taken the covers off the F4 LH44, a bike based around the F4 RC model, but built in collaboration with Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton.
In order to tell the F4 LH44 apart from the F4 RC, you only need to look at the predominantly candy apple red exterior. It also features new carbon fiber elements, an Alcantara seat, blacked-out engine block and a tinted windscreen.
There are also a few performance mods worth mentioning, such as the new suspension and a new titanium exhaust system. Gone is the regular four pipe setup in favor of a rear under-seat exhaust.
The F4 LH44 does have a bit more power, 7 horses to be exact for a total of 212 HP. As for the price, it’s rumored to be around €50,000 ($58,944) as reported by Motofire.
“I am very excited to continue my partnership with MV Agusta. I love working with Giovanni and the guys at MV Agusta, their passion for engineering and attention to detail produces stunning, original looking bikes,”stated the three-time F1 champion.
“I am particularly excited to introduce my new bike, the F4 LH44. 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.”
