The exotic Italian superbike manufacturer MV Agusta has announced the launch of its limited edition F3 800 RC (Reparto Corse) in India with a price tag of Rs 19.73 lakh (Ex-showroom, Pune). Production of this exclusive collector’s edition motorcycle is limited to just 250 units; out of which, only 9 are allocated for India. It is a road-going replica of the team Reparto Corse's F3 800 ridden by Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zanetti in the FIM Superbike World Championship. Each motorcycle is autographed by Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zanetti and comes with its ID Plaque with the limited edition serial number. Along with the unique paint scheme, the bike also gets an 'AMG' badging - the high-performance division of Mercedes-Benz - which owns a 25 per cent stake in MV.
The MV Agusta F3 800 RC gets power from the same 798cc, liquid-cooled, inline three-cylinder engine that propels the standard version as well. The motor puts out a maximum power output of 150PS at 13,000rpm, with torque standing at 88Nm at 10,600rpm, and the limiter cutting in at 13,500rpm. The bike has a dry weight of just 173 kg which helps it to accelerate faster and provides performance that is almost comparable to a litre-class machine. It has a top speed of 269kmph which is just 30kmph lesser than the speed limit of a production motorcycle.
Bookings for the MV Agusta F3 800 RC are now open in India and one can visit http://www.mvagusta.com/en-gb/dealers/ for more details.
