What do you get when you cross and MV Augusta F4 CC (the 1078cc MV F4 variant) with an MV Augusta F4 R 312 (the MV F4 312kph capable variant)? Well, and MV Augusta F4 with 1078cc’s capable of doing over 312kph. Rated at 190hp, the 1078 is the “racing rules” be damned street bike with Italian flare. The F4 1000 (the current F4 R 312) will function as MV’s race homologated Superbike, meeting all the requirements and specification set down for WSBK competition. Details on the changes, and more pictures after the jump.
In addition to the bump in engine displacement, a 10mm switchable intake is added (similar to that found on the Aprilia RSV4 and Yamaha R1), and a slipper clutch, which will work alongside the Engine Braking System (EBS). There is continued use of a steel lattice frame, Marzocchi 50mm forks, and a Sachs rear shock. Final weight is 192kg (423lbs) in single seat form.
Final price is rumored at €21,190. US markets depending you’re looking upwards of $25,000.
