THE CHOICE OF F1 WORLD CHAMPION LEWIS HAMILTON.

THE MV AGUSTA F4 LH44. Thanks to the creativity of the Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton and the experience of the MV Agusta staff, the F4 LH44 is much more than just a bespoke bike: it can be defined as the most original interpretation of the glorious F4.

The F4 RR LH44 contains unparalleled engineering solutions and thoroughbred excellence, ensuring total bike control and heart-stopping performance: an inertial control platform with lean angle sensor, a redefined riding position, full Ride-By-Wire, Öhlins electronic suspension and steering damper as well as GP-spec titanium con rods. The result is a machine that is revolutionary but still with that unique F4 flavour. We wanted to create a vehicle that would exceed customer expectations, one with an electronics-focussed technological platform that improves engine power delivery and ride dynamics on both road and track. All combined with a fully revised engine that punches out record-breaking performance.

Overview
  • Short-stroke inline 4-cylinder engine with central cam chain and radial valves
  • MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) technology
  • ELDOR electronics package with Ride-By-Wire and four engine maps that adjust:
  • – Throttle sensitivity
    – Maximum torque
    – Engine braking
    – Engine response
    – Rev limiter

  • Inertial platform lean angle sensor
  • 8-level traction control
  • EAS (Electronically Assisted Shift)
  • Modular compound-structure frame with TIG hand-welded tubular steel trellis and aluminium plates
  • Öhlins suspension with electronic control
  • Brembo monobloc brake calipers

DESIGN

The customisation that led to the creation of the F4 LH44 was based on a continuous, direct, dialogue between the British Formula 1 champion and the CRC (Castiglioni Research Center) workshop where every MV Agusta takes shape. Ideas, suggestions, preferences, perception: the creative process was long, with attention paid to the bike’s every last detail. Each individual idea was meticulously assessed and checked in terms of its feasibility, flair and functionality. Thorough analysis and creative comparison have made the F4 LH44 much more than just a custom project: it is, rather, an unprecedented, un-repeatable interpretation of the F4.


SUSPENSION

With the F4 LH44, the quest for a refined colour scheme extends to the suspension set-up that boasts premium suspension components: an Öhlins USD NIX 30 TiN-coated fork – which offers separately adjustable hydraulic response in compression (left tube) and rebound (right tube), plus pre-load – and an Öhlins TTX 36 rear shock with piggyback reservoir, which, again, can be mechanically adjusted. The colour of the fork and rear shock further heighten the uniqueness of the F4 LH44; the striking black anodized fork outer tubes are the result of a specific agreement with Öhlins. Let’s not forget that this Swedish company has made gold outer tubes one of its hallmarks. The rear spring and shock reservoir are also black, enhancing the sense of exclusivity.


DETAILS

The seat, which retains the much-appreciated racing ergonomics seen on the F4 RC, is hand made using top quality materials such as natural leather and Alcantara, a winning combination on a par with the very best automotive craftsmanship. Colour continues to play a starring role on the engine. All-black, right down to its select, lightweight magnesium alloy parts, it offers at-a-glance panache and a real racing feel. The smoked screen – a first for an F4 production model – polishes the front end styling to perfection. Extensive use of carbon fibre in components such as the main fairing sections makes for a lightweight bike that boasts outstanding visual gusto thanks to an alternating gloss-matt paint pattern, just one of the many unique features on the F4 LH44. Dedicated components include a racing-style fuel cap, forged wheels and unique items such as the rear wheel nut which, on the F4 LH44, has been CNC machined after anodization.


TYRES

Making the MV Agusta F4 LH44 even more exclusive are the Pirelli DIABLO™ Supercorsa SP tyres (120/70 ZR 17 at the front and 200/55 ZR 17 at the rear), specifically designed by Pirelli for the 44 edition of the F4 Lewis Hamilton bikes. These special-edition Pirelli DIABLO™ Supercorsa SP tyres stand out for their red sidewalls, which sport the LH44 logo, comprising Hamilton’s initials and race number. Given the exclusiveness of the bike, the tyres just had to be Pirelli DIABLO™ Supercorsa SPs, road-approved tyres that offer outstanding racetrack performance.
