Four bike MV Agusta RC range for 2017
MV Agusta have been trotting out the number 37 for much of the 2017 range, along with a few choice upgrades to form a four-bike ‘RC’ line-up of race-replicas.
RC stands for Reparto Corse – Italian for race department – while the number 37 emblazoned on all models pays homage to the number of constructor’s world championships the firm have won.

There will be 350 RC-model F3 675s and 800s available. Each one features special race-replica graphics that are inspired by the World Supersport bikes of Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zanetti – and each bike is personally signed by them.
The RC’s special parts package comprises a special licence plate holder, single seat cowl, rear paddock stand, bike cover and a certificate of exclusivity.
There is a new version of the F4 RC, also sporting the number 37, of which there will be 250 available. It is intended as a replica of Leon Camier’s WSB bike, and comes with a wooden box containing the factory race kit.
That kit comprises an SC Project single exit exhaust, dedicated ECU, single seat cowl, alloy fuel cap and mirror inserts – allowing owners to get the full track look.
While there’s nothing very race-replica about the Dragster, it has also been gifted the RC treatment for 2017. Just like the F3 and F4 models, the Dragster gets a special superbike-style paintjob, the number 37 gracing its flanks, and a limited production run of 350 units.
The Dragster RC will be officially unveiled at next week’s EICMA show in Milan, Italy – along with the other three RCs.
