2012 MV Agusta F4 RR announced

If you like your Italian exotica to come in the two wheeled variety, we have some pictures and video of the latest handy work from MV Agusta. The company has recently revealed its 2012 MV Agusta F4 RR to the world.

Motorcycle.com is reporting that the new bike’s engine has little in common with the F4, as the piston diameter has been upped to a 79mm bore and the stroke has been lowered to 50.9mm. The F4 RR has a new 4-2-1-4 exhaust system and new intake and the engine now produces 198hp compared to 183hp on the F4.

There is a quick remove cassette gearbox and slipper clutch, and there is an updated ECU and traction control system. The frame and swing- arm is the same as the F4 but the steering head angle can be adjusted. A new Ohlin’s suspension system has been added which has fully adjustable 43mm upside-down forks.

To stop the machine you are provided with radial-mounted Brembo monobloc calipers and radial master cylinders. The wheels are now made of forged aluminum which saves two pounds in weight. It will be available in red or white, and matte white. Pricing for the US has not yet been announced but will sell in Italy for 22,000 euro’s which is about $33,000.
