MV AGUSTA F4 RC IN THE OFFING

-

MV AGUSTA ARE participat­ing in the 2015 World Superbike Championsh­ip (WSBK), and a pre-requisite for participat­ion in the WSBK is that the bikes on the track need to be tuned versions of road-legal bikes currently available in the market. This means an F4 RC, based on the RR in both looks and performanc­e, will soon be launched.

The F4 RC will sport a signature single-sided swing-arm and the Termignoni exhaust in a typical 4-2-1-2 configurat­ion. Also expect the familiar twin-pot callipers from Brembo biting into the double disc rotors. The package will be completed with front and rear Öhlins suspension­s. Claimed power figures for the flagship F4 RC are a heady 212 PS with 111 Nm of peak torque.

Once launched, the bike will lock horns with the latest crop of the superbikes such as the Yamaha R1, Ducati 1299 Panigale S, Aprilia RSV4 RF, BMW S 1000 RR and Kawasaki Ninja H2.
