The livery makes the bike look even more elegant and sporty.

The livery is similar to the one found in the original limited-edition bike, an MV Agusta F4 RC AMG. Apart from the visual treatment, they have replaced the stock levers with adjustable ones; and the handlebars get bar-end indicators as well. The front indicator on the fairing has been replaced with integrated units, for a cleaner look. The rear features a tail tidy kit which enhances the bike’s sportiness. They have removed the oversized saree guard as well, for better aesthetics. The front fender gets a wrap that looks like carbon fibre as well.
