MV Agusta Reveals F4Z Zagato

MV Agusta F4Z Zagato

The heavily anticipated reveal of MV Agusta and Italian car design company Zagato’s joint collaboration on the F4Z was alleviated a week early as MV Agusta tweeted this photo today.  We’re certainly glad they did as to thrust this much beauty and imagination in such a magnificent meeting of art and machine onto an unsuspecting public on Septemper 4 may have given some trouble breathing.  In case you missed the previous tantalizing teaser videos released earlier, we’ve included them below.  You can read all about what is sure to be a heralded machine at mvagusta.com.

James Bond’s Honda CRF250R

If you like motorcycles and are a fan of James Bond films, then we’re sure you remember the opening sequence of the hit film Skyfall where Bond chased the bad guy atop the roofs of Istanbul on a motorcycle.

That bike was a Honda CRF250R modified to look like the one the Turkish police ride.  Now, that exact same bike, authenticated by Honda, can be purchased through auction on Bonhams. Thanks to Silodrome for the heads up and all the details.  Source: James Bond / Skyfall Honda CRF250R
