Perhaps the ultimate MV Agusta, the F4 RC is the closest version to the one which raced in the World Superbike Championship. A true track machine for the true MV enthusiast.
RC stands for Reparto Corse (Racing Department), the place where the MV Agusta machines destined for racing are born.
With its 212 hp (at the crankshaft) at 13.600 rpm, the F4 RC in race track configuration, represents the pinnacle of the extraordinary 4-cylinder MV Agusta “Corsa Corta” evolution.
The F4 RC features a number of exclusively designed and developed components that are found only on this model, such as: the cylinder head casing with high-flow intake and exhaust ports, ultra lightweight forged pistons, titanium connecting rods, magnesium covers and titanium fasteners. Specific full carbon fibre side fairings aiding and numerous titanium fasteners.
Included with the F4 RC is a dedicated racing kit, including an electronic control unit with specific mapping and a titanium SC-Project single exit exhaust. These components allow the maximum power of the short-stroke four-cylinder engine to be increased (bore 79 mm - stroke 50.9 mm) with central timing chain and radial valve configuration from 205 hp to 212 hp.
The MVICS provides for instant adjustment of the dynamic behaviour of the bike (Normal, Sport and Rain maps), as well as a personalised Custom map. The Full Ride by Wire throttle, the 8-level traction control and the EAS 2.0 electronic up & down gearbox completes the package.
The racing vocation of the F4 RC is supported by the accurate control algorithms of the two-channel Bosch 9 PLUS ABS with race mode, that steps in only when strictly necessary, thus leaving the rider full control of the bike. In addition, the F4 RC features the RLM device (Rear Wheel Lift-up Mitigation) to avoid overturning when braking too harshly.
These technical features, which include Öhlins fork and shock absorber as well as advanced engine and vehicle management software, make the F4 RC bike the closest version to the one which raced in the World Superbike Championship.
The F4 RC is instantly recognisable with a red and white graphic base as used on the official racing World Superbike Championship version, including sponsor logos. The “37” is a reminder of the manufacturers World titles won by MV Agusta.
