RC, 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 concept forever.

F4 RC 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.

At 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. And 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 lower fairing.

Performance and lightness: the pursuit of these goals has been boundless, with work being carried out on every component in every possible area.

暗示F4 RC的地位非比尋常。

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 as possible.

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 employed.
EAS 2.0


Electronic support is both complete and effective thanks to MVICS 2.0 (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) technology, specifically developed by MV Agusta for all its models.

The ELDOR electronic control unit manages the complete Ride-By-Wire system (with redundant circuits) and the 4 engine maps. There is also plenty of scope for parameter adjustment.

  • throttle sensitivity
  • maximum torque
  • engine braking
  • engine response
  • rev limiter

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 (which has an 8-level setting range and can also be disabled).

The EAS 2.0 (Electronically Assisted Shift) 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 (565 mm).

Front fork is a TiN-coated Ohlins USD NIX 30 with separate hydraulic adjustment of compression (left stanchion) and rebound (right stanchion), plus spring pre-load adjustment.

At the rear there is an Ohlins TTX 36 shock absorber with piggyback reservoir: manual compression/rebound adjustment is effected via the anodised aluminium knobs.

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 intake covers.

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 single-seater use;
  • quick-release tank cap;
  • red anodized Ergal plugs to be applied after removal of rear view mirrors;
  • certification demonstrating that each motorcycle belongs to a limited edition of just 250 units;
  • personalised motorcycle cover;
