MV Agusta has really got their money’s worth out of the F4 design, and part of that includes a significant amount of special editions. One of the most impressive was the F4 RC (Reparto Corse), an upgraded version intended to be used as a basis for World Superbike competition. Just 250 were produced, and they were significantly changed from the standard F4 and the F4 RR in order to reduce weight by more than 15 pounds. All the engine covers are manufactured from magnesium, and titanium hardware is used throughout. The pistons, connecting rods and crankshaft have all been redesigned for lighter weight.
On the chassis side, dimensions are similar to the RR model, but the chromoly section of the RC’s frame is tig welded by hand and the swing-arm pivot is now adjustable. Suspension components include a TiN-coated Ohlins NIX 30 fork and an Ohlins TTX 36 shock (without the RR’s electronic adjustability), and the wheels are forged magnesium. Brembo M50 monoblock calipers work on 320mm discs, and ABS is provided by a Bosch 9-plus Race unit with rear wheel lift-up mitigation.
This example (VIN: ZCGMCFTW5FV006419, Engine #: F61BG05826) is #230 of the 250 production run, and it has just 13 miles. The sale includes a branded crate which contains a full titanium racing exhaust, race ECU, aluminum mirror caps, passenger seat, Owner’s Manual, Quick Manual, USB drive, MV Agusta stickers, code card in a leather pouch, and extra key on a key ring with a leather strap and metal core, a letter summarizing the crate contents, quick release gas cap, race kit installation instructions, a dealer pre-delivery checklist, stock exhaust, additional ECU, a cover, and a Certificate of Authenticity.
