We are still waiting for the 2015 MV Agusta F4 RC to break cover officially, but the top-of-the-line superbike from Varese continues to make itself sneakily available to the public.
First there were the leaked studio photos, which looked spot-on to the photos MV Agusta USA teased us with at its press launch earlier this year.
Now, we have more photos of the F4 RC leaking, though with some changes to the design — namely more prominent “AMG” badging, for MV Agusta’s newest minority partner.
The 2015 MV Agusta F4 RC isn’t supposed to arrive at dealerships until June 2015; and when it does, it will be in limited numbers. The F4 RC is MV Agusta’s homologation special for World Superbike and domestic superbike racing classes.
One can only guess why MV Agusta has gone back and re-worked the AMG logos onto the bodywork, though we would hazard that the German car-tuning brand wanted a little bit more marketing bang for its buck.
We have talked about AMG’s involvement with the MV Agusta at some length already, and it seems the roots of that partnership are only growing further, as seen with the F4 RC project.
The new superbike will come with a radically overhauled engine, with the MV Agusta F4 RC sporting a new cylinder heard, new crankshaft, new camshaft, bigger fuel injectors, lighter pistons, and titanium connecting rods.
Öhlins will provide the suspension, front and rear; Brembo will provide the braking components, and Termignoni will be making the 4-2-1-2 titanium exhaust.
We have also heard that the MV Agusta F4 RC is littered with titanium bolts, and other pieces made from magnesium and carbon fiber, in order to keep the weight down to a anorexic 386 lbs (dry).
With 212hp on tap, the 2015 MV Agusta F4 RC has best-in-class horsepower, though it also comes with a $46,000 price tag for customers in the USA.
Now that MV Agusta seems to have finally landed on a final graphic design package, we expect the F4 RC to official drop this month. Stay tuned.
