Final Production Design of MV Agusta F4 RC Revealed

The MV Agusta F4 RC, now the world’s most official unofficially announced motorcycle has been spotted at a bike show in Madrid, Spain. It looks pretty much exactly how it has in previously leaked pictures but now comes with the same decals and graphics as the WSBK bike it’s derived from, including AMG logos. Of note is that in some of the pictures, the rear passenger pegs have been removed (possibly the most frivolous use of rear pegs we’ve seen in a while).

The MV Agusta F4 RC (Reparto Corse, which means Racing Department in English) is the homologation of the company’s entrant into World Superbikes and other domestic series, though it’s supposed $46,000 price tag will mean it’s limited production run won’t be oversold. From previous rumors and reports, the bike’s specifications will be as follows:

  • Dry Weight at 175 kg
  • Titanium exhaust
  • Carbon fibre rear seat cover
  • Aluminium mirror caps kit
  • Lighter crankshaft
  • Redesigned cylinder head
  • Magnesium covers
  • Titanium screws
  • Carbon fiber fairings
  • Forged wheels
  • Ohlins suspensions
  • Li-on battery

Performance specifications from the four-cylinder 998 cc engine are reported to be 212 horsepower at 13,600 rpm (best in class for the street) and an arm wrenching 111 Nm torque at 9,600 rpm. Yummy.

The release date for the F4 RC is expected around June this year.
