New importers and distributors of MV Agusta motorcycles have kept a lid on prices, dropped all non-ABS variants and introduced a limited-edition F4 RC which Leon Camier is racing in World Superbikes.
The Briton puts the F4 RC through its paces in the above video. The new race special model was shown at the first round of the WSBK at Phillip Island. The limited-edition model will be available in road and race-ready configuration with 158kW of power (212hp) and 175kg dry.
The video reveals the bike’s enviable stats: limiter at 13,600 rpm, 1970 gram lightweight carbon fibre fairing, 1150 grams lighter thanks to the use of titanium, crankshaft lightened 487 grams, 333 titanium bolts, 250 units manufactured, 212 maximum horsepower in “race” configuration, 11 magnesium covers, 11 parts in carbon fibre.
Meanwhile, the big news for MV Agusta fans is the big price savings across the line-up, especially in the models where the non-ABS variant has been deleted.
For example, the Brutale 800 RR was $21,490 for the non-ABS model and $24,490 for the ABS vacant, but is now just $19,999 with ABS as standard which is a $3500 saving.
It’s a similar story with the Brutale 1090 RR which was $21,490 and $24,490, but is now just $22,990. Other examples are the F4 range where the new price sits between the previous prices for the non-ABS and ABS models.
Only two models have had price increases. They are the F3 675 and Brutale 800 which are up only $200.
