2015 MV Agusta Limited edition
F4RC 新車查詢：文偉電單車中心 27 Mar 2015 The new F4 RC is limited to 250
units and each is numbered and
supplied with a certificate, the
bike includes a "ready to race"
component kit with everything needed
to configure the bike to be used
exclusively on race circuits.
Reparto Corse: The new F4 RC is the sharp end of a project
that began with the first incredible F4. The model that put
MV Agusta back in the spotlight, changing the sports bike
produced in a limited edition of just 250 bikes, each F4 RC
comes complete with a certificate of authenticity and a
compre-hensive special components kit that provides an
awesome power peak of 212 hp at 13,600 rpm.
the same time, this version, which joins the standard and RR
line-up, is gearing up for success in the 2015 Superbike
World Championship. Just approved race regulations, in fact,
drastically limit the modifications that can be made to
production models. Consequently, to have a bike that will be
extremely competitive right from the first world
championship race, technical specifications need to be
defined with near-manic attention to detail.
those who want a colour scheme identical to that used on the
bikes competing in the Superbike World Championship need
only choose their own personal race number on the front and
Performance and lightness: the
pursuit of these goals has been boundless, with work being
carried out on every component in every possible area.

The 4-cylinder Corsa
Corta engine with central timing chain and radial valves has
undergone a series of modifications aimed at reducing the
already-low overall weight and boosting performance. Those
same valves, both intake and exhaust, are each moved by a
spring to reduce total moving masses and make it easier to
achieve the extremely high RC-standard engine revs.
The lubrication circuit ensures outstanding reliability
whatever the riding conditions, even in the most demanding
situations so typical of racing. In order to further reduce
weight, MV Agusta has employed a series of components in
magnesium alloy, for the cylinder head cover yet also on the
clutch, chain, removable gearboxselector, labyrinth blow-by,
alternator, ABS pick up sump and lubricating filter and oil
duct support flange covers. All-titanium bolts and screws,
which have saved 1.1 kg, sharpen the personality of the F4
RC further, giving the technical content a decidedly racing
flavour. And, as you'd expect from a real Superbike, the
quest to lighten the machine has gone much further: pistons,
rods, and crankshaft have all been designed to be as light
Meticulous work has been carried out on
all internal steel parts, including numerous gear components
and, of course, the camshafts, all of which have been given
a thorough overhaul using sophisticated machining tools to
remove, quite literally, every redundant gram. The head
features new intake and exhaust ducts that, together with
all the other changes, have increased maximum power further
to 205 hp at 13,450 rpm (212 hp on the kit version with
exhaust system and dedicated control unit) against a torque
of 115 Nm at 9300 rpm.
As stated, the intake has
been modified by designing new ducts. The 50 mm throttle
bodies have been integrated in the TSS variable-length
intake system. The injectors are arranged on two banks: the
upper one uses specific Magneti Marelli components that
offer high performance in terms of fuel delivery; the lower
bank instead features 4 Mikuni injectors. To maximise
efficiency, silicone cooling circuit hoses have been

system (with redundant circuits) and the 4 engine maps.
There is also plenty of scope for parameter adjustment.
The inertial platform with lean angle
sensor uses three gyroscopes and three accelerometers, plus
the ABS pick up ring, to gather all the data, which is then
algorithm-processed to determine required traction control

system allows clutchless gear changes, speeding up shifts
significantly and resulting in shorter lap times.
On the F4 RC the CrMo tubular
steel trellis frame is TIG-welded by hand; the lower part is
finished off with aluminium alloy plates on which a seat has
been machined to insert the singleside swingarm pin, the
fulcrum of which can be height-adjusted.
Compared to the F4
RR, basic measurements remain unaltered: 1,430 mm wheelbase,
steering head angle (23.5°) and single-sided swingarm length

Similarly, the steering damper, also made
by Ohlins, can be mechanically adjusted too. Thanks to the
absence of the control unit and actuators needed on
electronically controlled suspension, the weight of the F4
RC has been reduced even further.
The unique components of
this version are further highlighted by widespread adoption
of carbon fibre on the side panels, lower fairing, rear
mudguard and front mudguard spoiler, upper and lower chain
guard, the upper airbox section and the left and right
Made of forged aluminium alloy, the
wheels have been designed and built exclusively for this
model. Even the battery - a light lithium (Li-Po) 12.8 V 4
Ah unit - is model-specific.
Foot controls are also new: peg
positions are adjustable and the shift lever features a
sensor for fast gear changes.
The braking system confirms
the degree of excellence seen on the F4 RR: a pair of 320 mm
front discs with steel braking rotors and monobloc Brembo
M50 callipers with dedicated radial pump provide unbeatable
performance, weight and stiffness. At the rear a 4-piston
calliper and 210 mm disc are mounted.
F4 RC weighs a full 7 kg less than
the F4 RR, price includes a complete track riding kit which
cuts weight by another 6 kg, pushing total weight savings up
to an impressive 13 kg.
With the assembly of specific
components, such as the titanium Termignoni exhaust
system with dedicated control unit, the bike reaches an
exceptionally high maximum power of 212 hp at 13600 rpm.
The kit includes:
Termignoni exhaust system in
titanium, with carbon fibre heat guard;
dedicated control unit;
carbon fibre rear seat cowl for
quick-release tank cap;
red anodized Ergal plugs to be
applied after removal of rear view mirrors;
