Updated MV Agusta F4 RC

Though MV Agusta has been undergoing some restructuring, that hasn’t stopped the Varese-based manufacturer from releasing an update to the much coveted MV Agusta F4 RC (Reparto Corse).

First seen in 2015, the F4 RC is a true-blooded thoroughbred homologated machine; the F4’s inline-four power plant produces a claimed 205 horsepower in standard configuration, and 212 horsepower @ 13,600 rpm with an authorized race kit.

Those numbers alone should garner a closer look, but this year, MV Agusta has provided a 2016 WSBK livery to match those impressive stats. Sporting Leon Camier’s WSBK livery, along with a “37” to commemorate the number of constructors World titles that MV Agusta has achieved.

The F4 RC is absolutely brilliant in terms of aesthetic choices. There is more to this story, however. In total, only 250 of these units will leave the factory floor, so it goes without saying that this is a low-run, ultra-exclusive machine. But the Italian manufacturer will also be providing some accoutrements to sweeten the proverbial deal.

While the F4 RC might be street legal, MV Agusta makes one thing very clear: within a few minutes of light wrenching, this is a race-ready machine.

That performance lineage isn’t sacrificed in less than stellar suspension, not in the least. We’ll be seeing Öhlins forks, TIN coated NIX 30-type forks, and the familiar TTX36 shock in the rear. The same can be said for braking power, which will be handled by Brembo GP 4-piston radial calipers, 320mm rotors up front and 210mm in the rear.

On any modern Superbike, we expect a full suite of electronic aides to be available, and the F4 RC doesn’t disappoint. Bosch ABS 9 Plus with RaceMode will also features a rear-wheel-lift mitigation system will help keep the bike steady under heavy front braking situations. The MVICS 2.0 (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) allows the rider to manage throttle sensitivity, max torque, engine braking, and engine response and rev limits.

If that isn’t enough, you’ll also have an 8 level TC unit that monitors lean angle, and acceleration. Naturally, no Superbike in 2016 would be complete without a qickshifter, and that rounds out the electronic aides on the F4 RC.

The latest model has no official price as of yet, but if the 2015 F4 RC is any indication, potential buyers can expect to pay around $46,000. Now that we got that out of the way, let’s just all sit back and appreciate the F4 RC in all of its glory.
