Meet the 2018 MV Agusta F4 RC. Its Ready To Race
This new MV Agusta F4 RC excels both on the road and the track with it’s direct connection to WSBK championship racing. It is therefore unquestionable that you will discover the same technical pedigree of the ‘Reparto Corse’ F4 ridden by British rider Leon Camier.
As with Camier’s F4, the F4 RC can be both enthralling and efficient; the most comprehensive package amongst Hypersports. Elegant and simple, the F4 RC is instantly recognizable with a stunning red and white graphic base as that used on the official version, including sponsor logos. The number “37” embellished on the fairing is a reminder of the constructors World titles won by MV Agusta.
The heart of the new MV Agusta F4 RC is the 4-cylinder 205bhp engine borrowed from the full-racing-grade F4 Reparto Corse with central distribution chain and radial valves that is tuned.
Parameters like throttle sensitivity, maximum torque, engine braking, and rev limiter can all be set according to rider’s needs and riding style. Standard kit also contains a lean angle sensor, three gyroscopes, and three accelerometers.
The specially developed CrMo steel tube trellis frame features a NIX 30 type USD Ohlins fork with TiN coating at the front, allowing separate hydraulic compression adjustment and rebound along with pre-load adjustment, while the rear ends in an Ohlins TTX 36 fully adjustable shock with piggyback tank.
Stopping power is provided by 320 mm discs at the front with 4-piston Brembo monoblock calipers at the front, and a 4-piston caliper biting on a 210 mm disc at the rear. A radial braking pump on the handlebar and the Bosch 9 Plus Race Mode ABS are offered as standard.
MV Agusta has not shared its production numbers and so we do not know how many 2018 F4 RC units will be made, but it made it clear that a limited number will be hand built with the same care that went into building Leon Camier’s F4 Reparto Corsa race bike.
