Updated 2017 MV Agusta F4 RC revealed

2017 MV Agusta F4 RC limited edition special revealed with modest changes.


After unveiling the updated F3 675 RC and F3 800 RC specials last week, MV Agusta has given us the first glimpse of their bigger brother. Meet the modestly updated 2017 MV Agusta F4 RC.


If you didn’t know already, RC stands for Reparto Corse, which is Italian lingo for Racing Department. Essentially, this is House Varese’s road-going homologation special required to meet World Superbike Championship (WSBK) competition rules.


In RC form, the flagship MV Agusta F4 comes race kit included in purchases, allowing you to crank up its 998cc in-line four-cylinder screamer’s output up to a whopping 212hp. We can only imagine the top-end shriek this four-pot sings out of those tasty SC Project full system pipes.


Little else has changed aesthetically in this 2017 model except for the updated racing livery. Eagle-eyed readers would’ve noted the deletion of the AMG logo here – a result of the on-going battle between owners the Castiglioni family and shareholders Mercedes-AMG.


Nevertheless, the 2017 MV Agusta F4 RC is still one sharp and stunning special when dressed in the Italian motorcycle artisan’s signature tricolor racing livery from WSBK. The scheme is faithfully reproduced here complete with Leon Camier’s signature racing number decal.


And like any of its homologation specials, the 2017 MV Agusta F4 RC will be limited to just 350 units worldwide. No pricing details were released but this bike would naturally command top dollar if you desired to own one.
