The final edition of the F4 superbike has been released in the form of the 2019 MV Agusta F4 Claudio.
Clad in carbon fibre goodies with gold accents, the F4 Claudio pushes out 212hp and 115Nm torque.
Only 100 units will be sold with a price tag of $83,000 for the US market (RM345,280).
As we all come to sadly realise, the flagship from MV Agusta is coming to the end of its line and the premium Italian bike manufacturer is sending it off with a bang thanks to this final edition of the F4. The 2019 MV Agusta F4 Claudio pays homage to its great lineage and also to its creator, Claudio Castiglioni.
This rare and beautiful beast will only have 100 units for the global market consumption and those who are interested in the 2019 MV Agusta F4 Claudio better be prepared to buy quickly as well as buy big considering its hefty price tag of $83,000 for the US market (around RM345,280).
Representing the ultimate combination of pure performance and art in motion, the MV Agusta F4 Claudio is packed with the latest technology and firepower courtesy of the Varesini company. Equipped with the same engine found in the F4 RC, this special edition is able to produce a whopping 212hp and 115Nm of torque from its 998cc inline-four engine.
This translates to 212hp and a maximum RPM of 14,200rpm which propels the 2019 MV Agusta F4 Claudio to a top speed of 302km/h! MV Agusta is able to achieve this thanks to the addition of a very fine full-system dual-tipped race exhaust produced by exhaust expert, SC-Project.
As part of the model’s huge farewell, the MV Agusta Reparto Corse division decided to take it a few notches by introducing new head intake and exhaust ports to the already powerful engine. This, in turn, improves the bike’s overall fluid dynamics, reduction in friction, and even more power thanks to the addition of DLC-treated cams as well as shift forks. Now that’s smooth.
Enough about the internals, let’s drool over the exterior design, shall we? Clad in a very sexy carbon fibre bodywork, the black and gold accents go superiorly well with its full carbon fibre wheels and golden suspension package courtesy of shock-absorbing master guru, Öhlins.
With all of the race kit combined, the 2019 MV Agusta F4 Claudio weighs only 175kg (dry) and this screams massive acceleration, agile handling, and downright ‘in your face’ power-to-weight ratio. As for stopping power, MV Agusta doesn’t cut corners with Brembo’s latest dual 320mm Stilema four-piston monobloc radial calipers.
Other specs include:
- IMU-assisted traction control system with eight levels
- Integrated ignition – injection system MVICS
- MV EAS 2.0 (Electronically assisted Shift up & down)
- Two-channel Bosch 9 PLUS ABS with race mode
- Rear Wheel Lift-up Mitigation
- Full Ride by Wire throttle
- Multiple titanium parts
The question now is with MV Agusta bidding farewell to the F4 line-up, will there be a brand new superbike to be introduced by them anytime soon? Well, that’s an answer we might have to wait, say around the year 2020? Stay tuned to Bikes Republic for more updates.
