MV Agusta continues to give us more information about their 2012 lineup. Here’s the skinny on their F4RR superbike.
The F4RR and it’s lower-spec, lower-priced counterpart, the F4R, will both be powered by MV Agusta’s new 200hp, 998cc short-stroke engine. The motor will feature all-titanium valves, which they claim is a first for a production engine. This design allowed engineers to not only lower weight, but also increase the size of the valves.
The 4-2-1-4 exhaust is completely re-designed, with bigger manifolds. Throttle bodies are bigger as well, and of course, the electronics package has been re-designed, but we’re not 100 per cent sure exactly what those changes are yet.
The front brake’s monobloc caliper is by Brembo. The front discs are 320mm units, reduced 5mm in size to lower unsprung weight. The 220mm stainless steel rear disc was designed specifically for MV Agusta.
What’s this all going to cost you, and when will it be available? Word on the street is that the F4RR will set you back $24,995 when it shows up in Canadian dealerships in February. We don’t have pricing or availability on the lower-spec F4R yet.
