Lewis lends his name to MV | Manufacture News | News
MV Agusta’s relationship with multiple F1 champion driver Lewis Hamilton has already led to a Dragster 800 bearing his initials.
Now MV has revealed another model, the F4 LH44 superbike.
Based on the range-topping F4 RC, the LH44 gets the same engine as standard, but with a kit that ups it to 158kW via a titanium silencer and an uprated ECU.
On top of that, the bike gets candy apple red paint with a pearl white chassis, an Öhlins NIX30 fork and a TTX36 shock. Unusually, both are black anodised rather than Öhlins’ signature gold.
The LH44 gets a handmade leather and alcantara seat and a black finish on the engine, plus a tinted screen and carbon fibre fairing. Detail changes extend as far as a CNC-machined rear wheel and even the tyres are special, with red sidewalls on the Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SPs.
No price has been announced but, like Lewis himself, the 44 buyers are unlikely to be struggling to make ends meet.
