MV Agusta has revealed the official details on the 2012 F4 RR – “the most advanced and powerful superbike in the world.” The new bike will be put on sale at a starting price of 22,900 euro, or about Rs. 14,85,000 at the current exchange rates.
The F4 RR is powered by a short-stroke radial valve engine that delivers 201 HP at 13,400 rpm and will be offered with even more exotic materials and reduced weight.
For 2012, the model will also get two new color schemes: pastel red/white and matte pearl white.
RR, the magical acronym that immediately brings to mind the world of competition. The bike for special individuals who demand the most exhilarating riding experience. Created using the most exotic materials, ultra-sophisticated suspension and the new 1000cc short-stroke engine make the MV Agusta F4 RR the most advanced and powerful superbike in the world.
When the most sophisticated chassis design is joined with the new MV short stroke engine, the result can only be an extraordinary machine. The MV Agusta F4 RR is the perfect tool for riders who demand the utmost performance. Evolved, exotic, and even further refined, the F4 RR is currently the best that technology can offer to the motorcycling world.
To already refined MV Agusta F4, more exotic materials added, reduced weight, and, above all, a 201 hp four-cylinder engine which makes the F4 RR the most powerful superbike ever built. All “packaged” with the advanced design that makes the MV Agusta F4 RR unique and unmistakable.
