MV AGUSTA GET RC
Four-bike RC range for 2017
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.
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.
