FrontRunners: MV Agusta

Since acquiring mv agusta for more than $100 million in 2008, Harley-Davidson has helped revitalize the 65-year-old Italian brand. The new 2010 MV Agusta F4 (www.mvagustausa.com), which debuted in November—just one month after Harley-Davidson announced its intention to sell MV Agusta—is a testament to the American manufacturer’s influence.

Aside from its square-tipped quad exhausts, refashioned fairing, and fully digital dash display, the new F4 looks much the same as the 2009 version. But the 2010 model’s engine, ergonomics, chassis, and single-sided swingarm have been totally reengineered under the auspices of Harley-Davidson. Thanks to its new 186 hp inline 998 cc 4-cylinder engine—and a very un-Harley-like weight of 424 pounds—the new F4 can reach a top speed of 190 mph.
