MV Agusta have release the first official photograps and technical details of the new F4 Reparto Corse, which is basically a street-legal version of their 2015 WSBK racebike. This is a homologation special and MV will only build 250 units of the F4 RC, which boasts 212 horsepower at 13,600rpm from its hand-assembled 'Corsa Corta' inline-four. This engine features radial valves (both intake and exhaust), 50mm throttle bodies, magnesium alloy components and titanium bolts and screws for a total weight reduction of 1.1 kilos.
As you'd expect, the F4 RC gets top-of-the-line electronics in the form of MV's MVICS 2.0 (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) system, which includes ride-by-wire throttle control with adjustable throttle sensitivity, lean angle sensor, ABS and 8-level traction control. The chrome-molybednum tubular trellis-type frame, which also uses machined aluminium alloy plates for maximum rigidity, remains unchanged. There's a USD Öhlins NIX 30 fork at the front and Öhlins TTX 36 monoshock at the back, both being fully adjustable for compression and rebound damping. There's also a fully adjustable Öhlins steering damper for stability at very high speeds. Brakes, too, are top-spec; twin 320mm steel discs with Brembo's M50 monobloc calipers at the front, and 210mm disc at the back.
