Four-bike RC range for 2017

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

MV Agusta have been trot­ting out the num­ber 37 for much of the 2017 range, along with a few choice up­grades to form a four-bike ‘RC’ line-up of race-repli­cas.

RC stands for Reparto Corse – Ital­ian for race depart­ment – while the num­ber 37 em­bla­zoned on all mod­els pays homage to the num­ber of con­struc­tor’s world cham­pi­onships the firm have won.


There will be 350 Rc-model F3 675s and 800s avail­able. Each one fea­tures spe­cial race-replica graph­ics that are in­spired by the World Su­pers­port bikes of Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zanetti – and each bike is per­son­ally signed by them. The RC’S spe­cial parts pack­age com­prises a spe­cial li­cence plate holder, sin­gle seat cowl, rear pad­dock stand, bike cover and a cer­tifi­cate of ex­clu­siv­ity.


There is a new ver­sion of the F4 RC, also sport­ing the num­ber 37, of which there will be 250 avail­able. It is in­tended as a replica of Leon Camier’s WSB bike, and comes with a wooden box con­tain­ing the fac­tory race kit. That kit com­prises an Sc-project sin­gle exit ex­haust, ded­i­cated ECU, sin­gle seat cowl, al­loy fuel cap and mir­ror in­serts – al­low­ing own­ers to get the full track look.

Drag­ster RC

While there’s noth­ing very rac­ereplica about the Drag­ster, it has also been gifted the RC treat­ment for 2017. Just like the F3 and F4 mod­els, the Drag­ster gets a spe­cial su­per­bikestyle paintjob, the num­ber 37 grac­ing its flanks, and a lim­ited pro­duc­tion run of 350 units. The Drag­ster RC will be of­fi­cially un­veiled at next week’s EICMA show in Mi­lan, Italy – along with the other three RCS.
