Ducati isn’t the only Italian manufacturer coming out with a new motorcycle for 2012, as we get our first look at the 2012 MV Agusta F4 RR Corsacorta. Making 198hp (18hp over your standard F4), the new MV features a short-stroke “Corsacorta” motor. We can expect to see the 2012 MV Agusta F4 RR Corsacorta hit dealers this summer, with a price tag of somewhere in the neighborhood of $30,000+.

MV Agusta is noticeably ramping up its product line offering now that it is back in the hands of the Castiglioni family. Also due out in 2012 is the all new MV Agusta F3, and its naked sibling the MV Agusta Brutale 675 B3. Expect an unveiling of those bikes at EICMA in November; and in the meantime, checkout the video of the new F4 in the video out after the jump.

    Great seeing more power being made from these, however the fact that they shorten the stroke and rev it higher doesn’t seem that it would usable much. Especially without some type of state of the art electronic package.

    They already have a state of the art electronics package, but since when did street-legal liter bike hp numbers become about usability?

    Aprilia to Ducati: Mine is BIGGER than YOURS… (^_^ )
    Ducati to ANYONE: For now…(-_- )

    Can’t wait to see the new “weapons” this coming Fall.

    Perhaps MV Agusta should start seriously pondering about entering WSBK! It’s the most effective marketing tool for their superbike/upcoming supersport bike! They just need to set-up a proper team and find some good proper sponsors & riders. Maybe in 2012?

    Jensen:

    Why call it a new bike…? It’s just a new engine and more fancy bits and pieces.
    New is their 675 and not that new anymore since it was so media covered that its feels like it’s been rolling out there for years now.
    Creating so much buzz about A Product thats kinda far from production debut (2years+) has that kind of effect on me… and im almost sure i ain’t the only one feeling that way.

  6. Well it does have a new motor…if creating a “new” bike requires one to change the design, then I’d argue MV hasn’t made a “new” bike in the better part of a decade (oh yeah, I went there!).

    @Rob. You are a dunce!! since when is any sportbike built for the street!!!???? It’s racetrack 1st. They ONLY throw headlights and mirors of some to support their racing efforts thru streetbike sales.

    @Jensen. It isnt a new bike!! upgraded engine doesnt mean new bike dork!
