Moto Corse show special MV and Ducati bikes at Intermot

The US$90,000 Moto Corse F4 Platino, based on the MV Agusta F4 1000R but with even more exotic bits...

Moto Corse, an Italian-Japanese collaboration, with offices in San Marino and Tokyo, showed two very special motorcycles at the Intermot show in Germany. The first was a Ducati 999 with carbonfibre bodywork, titanium exhaust and other detail changes.

The other bike was the MV Agusta F4 Platino, powered by a specially tuned 1080cc, 16-valve inline-four that makes 185 horsepower. The bike is fitted with a titanium exhaust, magnesium wheels and lightweight engine components. As you can see, both bikes get special paintjobs and at US$50,000 for the Ducati and US$88,000 for the MV, both are only for the super-rich.

The Moto Corse Ducati 999 costs only US$50,000. A bargain!
