New MV Agusta distributor (since February, 2015), Urban Moto Imports staged a special reveal of the flagship MV Agusta F4 RC last night in Melbourne.
Limited to only 250 units worldwide, 12-15 of which are scheduled to come to Australia, the MV Agusta F4 RC is the first model to come out of the collaboration with Mercedes-AMG, who took a 25 per cent stake in MV Agusta late last year.
All the machines making their way Down Under are already spoken for at a price around $63,000.
Details that make the MV Agusta F4 RC, or Reparto Corse if you want the long moniker, stand out from the regular, hardly garden variety F4, in a surprising amount of details.
Magnesium is used extensively where possible with 11 magnesium covers and the same number of carbon-fbre parts also add that extra air of exclusivity.
The crankshaft is 487g lighter and 333 of the bolts used throughout the machine are made from titanium to further help weight reduction.
Each 79×50.9mm cylinder is fed by two injectors, the upper using Magneti Marelli components while further down in the throttle bodies Mikuni injectors are utilised.
The Ohlins gear is sourced from the upper shelf of the Swedish company’s inventory with NIX 30 forks and TTX36 shock.
Forged rims are a standard part of the package as is a beautifully packaged box inlcuding the race kit parts that help up the power from 205hp to the full 212hp. Items included in the no-cost kit include a Termignoni exhaust system, ECU, pillion seat cover, Ergal fairing plugs and special fuel cap.
