Lewis Hamilton has unveiled his collaboration with MV Agusta to produce the F4 LH44 Superbike, set to become a new model inspired by the F4 RC raced in the World Superbike championship.

The three-time Formula 1 world champion has maintained his partnership with the Italian manufacturer after launching the Dragster RR LH last year and helped reveal the F4 LH44 during his preparations for the Malaysian Grand Prix this weekend. The 212bhp bike features Hamilton’s Panther logo and his designs which were also used on the Dragster model.

MV Agusta says the British driver took a central role in design ideas and describes the F4 LH44 as ‘much more than just a custom project which is an interpretation of the F4’.

Hamilton says he’s thrilled to maintain his collaboration with the Italian manufacturer, with just 44 bikes being produced in the special edition specification.

“I am very excited to continue my partnership with MV Agusta,” Hamilton said. “I love working with Giovanni and the guys at MV Agusta, their passion for engineering and attention to detail produces stunning, original looking bikes.

“My projects with MV Agusta are a great way to combine my love of riding bikes with my interest in creative design process so I am very much involved with the CRC design team throughout.

“I am particularly excited to introduce my new bike, the F4 LH44. It looks quite stunning and I had the pleasure of riding on track a few weeks ago in Italy, it feels great and combines the best of both worlds, a race bike for the road. There will be 44 bikes produced so I hope the lucky owners will love it as much as I do.”
