MV Agusta F4 Overview
A Joint Venture between the Italian bike manufacturing unit, MV Agusta and its Indian partner, Kinetic Engineering Group has brought to India one of the most powerful superbikes the world has ever seen, the MV Agusta F4. This 1000cc bike comes in a Completely Built Unit form riding on a 998cc 4 cylinder petrol engine yielding high power and torque outputs to the tune of 192.4bhp and 111Nm, respectively. The chassis comprises of a Chromium Molybdenum alloy steel tubular trellis frame affixed to an aluminium swingarm. The design of this superbike is not much different from the original model, F4 1000 crafted by the Italian master designer, Massimo Tamburini, for it carries a sleek diamond shaped headlight (with a projector lamp at the middle and white LED lights forming the circumference) nestled between two light nodes and a visor. The aerodynamic carbon fibre fairings look menacing and house the electronic instrument console at its back displaying readings such as speed limiter, riding mode, fuel reading, throttle sensitivity and a slew of other functions. The single cushy riding position is suitably inclined for better grip, and finds a 17 litres chiselled fuel tank in front and a pointed tail at rear with a four tier exhaust system just beneath it. The 17 inches wheels at the front and back carry Brembo disc brakes, a robust suspension system and an ABS system to boot. The superbike can be termed as a fly by wire machine as it has been bestowed with advanced electronics, an 8 speed ABS, a traction control system, a clutch less gear changing mechanism, and a rear wheel lift control among others.
MV Agusta F4 Engine & Transmission
MV Agusta F4 derives a mammoth 192.4bhp at revs of 13400rpm of power and 111Nm at 9600rpm of peak torque from a 998cc 4 cylinder 16 valve DOHC based petrol engine. The powerful engine combines functions such as advanced injection system made of Magneti Marelli fuel injectors and eight units of traction control. The engine is further mated to a 6 speed constant mesh transmission system, defined as cassette type that transfers torque to the rear wheel.
MV Agusta F4 Mileage
This yet to be launched bikeвЂ™s mileage is not known as of yet. But as this is a sports bike with a high power output, the mileage would be on the lower side.
MV Agusta F4 Performance and Handling
MV Agusta F4 can reach a top speed of 297kmph and owing to its fly by wire control systems, is not much of a challenge to ride. The 17 inches alloy wheels are studded with powerful disc brakes вЂ“ 320mm disc brakes with Brembo four piston callipers at the front and a 210mm single disc brake with Nissin four piston callipers at the rear. The bumps on the way can be easily tackled by its robust Ohlins suspension system and a skid control function like Bosch 9 ABS unit. Besides, there is a rear wheel lift mitigation that comes into play when sudden brakes are applied.
