Engine

The new MV Agusta 2017 F4 RR Sports Motorcycle features the latest four-cylinder engine containing the piston of 79 mm in diameter and stroke of 50.9 mm. This engine has the ability to reach the top rev limit of 14,000 rpm. The quality components have been used to ensure the best performance. The engine timing has been upgraded by using the single spring in its intake and exhaust valves instead of two as used in the previous model i.e. 2016 MV Agusta F4 RR. It will reduce the moving mass and boost both maximum engine revs and the rev variation rate. The piston blacks are hard-anodized, which is not only durable but is reliable as well. The latest con rods are made of titanium, which provides an ultimate strength and lightness plus it rebalanced the crankshaft as well. The oil circuit has been redesigned from inside and outside the crankcase ensuring the perfect main bearing and lubrication of con rod. This engine runs at the lower temperature due to the use of enhanced radiator efficiency and redesigned oil routing. The short-stroke inline four-cylinder engine is available in two power configuration. The 2017 MV Agusta F4 reaches up to 195 HP while the MV Agusta 2017 F4 RR Sports Motorcycle reach the max power of 200.8 HP. The fuel delivery system contains the throttle bodies of 50 mm which is fully revised variable length intake tract (TSS). The six-speed gearbox features the clutch having the mechanical slipper deliver. There are four engine maps are available i.e. three default and the fourth can be customized by the rider.

Design

The new MV Agusta 2017 F4 RR Sports Motorcycle comes with the distinctive design provides an eye-catching the view. The new graphics and color combination of headlight and tail light looks very attractive. The front headlight is been highlighted with two distinctive light guides on the leading edge of the spoiler making it perfectly aerodynamic. An integrated light guide increases the brightness of the rear light assembly. The wheel is carefully designed to ensure the lightweight and they are available in two versions. The first one, used in F4, has the razor-thin spokes with silver finish. The second one, used in F4 R, has low weight wheel and less material thickness due to the use of special aluminum alloy forging process. The four-tailpipe exhaust system has been upgraded. The two outer pipes kept shorter and tapered while the central pipes extend beyond the end of the tailpiece.

Electronics

The new MV Agusta 2017 F4 RR Sports Motorcycle features the Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System (MVICS) platform, which is being integrated on the F4 to ensure the precise control of multiple engine maps and rider assistance devise such as traction control and Electronically Assisted Shift (EAS). The use of latest electronics ensures the maximum safety and effectiveness. The data received from the potentiometers are examined with analog signals, while the third sensor confirms the complete throttle closure. The two additional sensor has been installed on the throttle bodies for effective performance. The inertial platform sensor uses three gyroscopes and new three accelerometers and gives an electronic control unit with an array of information of vehicle dynamics. The intervention of traction control is precise due to the use of encoder on its front wheel. This system not only enhances the safety but performance as well. The algorithms that define the operation of MVICS maximizes the available traction at the rear wheel. The new innovation is the Custom map, which allows the rider to choose his own set as an alternative to Normal, Sport and Rian options. It allows the rider to customize five parameters like torque, speed limiter, throttle sensitivity, engine response and engine braking.

Frame and Suspension

The new MV Agusta 2017 F4 RR Sports Motorcycle has an incredible frame design. Its frame consists up of two distinctive elements, which have been made by MV Agusta. The main section of the frame is made up of CrMo steel tubing, which joins the pair of cast aluminum alloy plates to form a complete structure plus it provides the pivot point for the sculpted single-sided swingarm. The frame optimization has reduced the weight without sacrificing the rigidity. The MV Agusta 2017 F4 RR Sports Motorcycle has been hand-welded by using the TIG technology and it contains the dedicated steel with exceptional mechanical properties. The latest three versions offer three distinct combinations of shock and fork. The use of Ohlins suspension with an electronic control allows the rider to choose between different setups directly from the dashboard. There are different suspension set-ups also available for all engine maps but the rider has an option to adjust the suspension independently of the maps. This system gives a separate control for compression and rebound damping while allowing the manual personalization of preload. The latest electronic steering damper comes in both manual and automatic settings.

Brakes

The new MV Agusta 2017 F4 RR Sports Motorcycle features the state-of-the-art stopping power. Its braking system contains the dual 320 mm of front discs with steel braking rotors, which is paired with the Brembo Monobloc M50. This system is completed by four-piston rear caliper operating on 210 mm disc.
