The F4 Tamburini features the most esoteric equipment that can be offered on a production motorbike. The front end is dominated by Marzocchi forks with titanium nitride treated 50mm fork legs inserted into a billet aluminum base. These carry the new Nissin Racing single block 6-piston calipers. The Marchesini wheels are inspired by the same design as used on Grand Prix machines. They are extremely lightweight and strong, and boast lower gyroscopic inertia that increases ease of handling and potential cornering speed.

The Y-shaped spokes on the alloy wheels only add to the elegant sculpted design of the progressive, single sided Magnesium alloy swinging arm (weight: 4.1 kg) and emphasize the essence of the Tamburini F4 project. This lightweight material is also used for the frame plates (weight: 1.08 kg) and for the lower fork plate. The footrests are adjustable and are not only made from a solid piece, but also boast the F4 1000 logo. The rear carbon fiber fender is also new. Carbon fiber is also used for the manifold heat shield.

 "Motorcycles make us dream. They have different colors, they have different sounds. They have shapes that sometimes show what inspired their designers. Sometimes these creations are real works of art that turn the designer into an artist. This is the case with Massimo Tamburini, a design engineer who has revolutionized the concepts of sports motorcycles by raising them to new limits of performance and granting them unparalleled beauty. To pay tribute to this unique individual, I wanted his latest creation to be called after him with a limited production edition with very specific features. This machine has that look that all motorcyclists love along with the mechanical sophistication that they have always dreamed of. It has the heart of a racing bike yet all the glamour of an individual work of art. It has all of our history and passion in its soul." - Claudio Castiglioni
