One of the more surprising things to come from MV Agusta USA’s price sheet for its 2015 models is the confirmation of the MV Agusta F4 RC superbike — a bike that had been leaked ahead of the 2014 EICMA show.
MV Agusta hasn’t publicly released details on the F4 RC yet, though leaked information points to a homologation special styled superbike with over 200hp.
Expected to cost €40,000 in the European market (the price cap for WSBK racing machines), American enthusiasts will enjoy the MV Agusta F4 RC’s $46,000 price tag in the United States.
If rumors are true, we can expected a 210hp machine that weighs 386 lbs dry. Since WSBK and similar superbike regulations are pushing engine development freezes from production models, we can expect MV Agusta to build out the F4 RC’s motor quite extensively for consumers.
As such owners can expect a new cylinder head, crankshaft, camshaft, while also using bigger fuel injectors, lighter pistons, and titanium connecting rods.
Other go-fast parts will be standard too. Expect to see Öhlins suspension, Brembo brakes, and a titanium exhaust from Termignoni.
We’re not sure why MV Agusta has been mum until now about the F4 RC project, but now that the cat is out of the bag, it shouldn’t be long until the Italian marque announces its race bike platform.
