Limited-edition MV Agusta F3 RC revealed

350 World Supersport replicas to be made, each signed by Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zanetti

MV AGUSTA has unveiled this limited-edition F3 RC, a road-going replica of the machines ridden by Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zanetti in World Supersport.

Only 350 are to be produced – 100 F3 675 RCs and 250 F3 800 RCs – and each will be signed by MV Agusta Team Reparto Corse World Supersport riders Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zanetti. The RC stands for Reparto Corse, or Race Division.

As well as the graphics, other exclusive features include anodised aluminium covers to be fitted in place of the mirrors, Ergal clutch and brake levers, a single-seat cover and a paddock stand. The limited edition was unveiled in 'racing' and 'street' guises, the latter with mirrors, indicators and number-plate hanger removed. See both in our gallery below.

Each machine will have Cluzel’s autograph on the right-hand side and Zanetti’s on the left.  

MV said in a press release: ‘A road-going replica of the MV Agusta F3 by Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zanetti hot from the Schiranna Reparto Corse.  The F3 RC, produced in a limited edition of 100 bikes in the 675 configuration and 250 in the meatier 800 configuration, faithfully reproduces the graphics of the Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zanetti motorbike. To certify the originality of each bike, every F3RC is autographed by both riders, #16 Cluzel on the right side panel and #87 Lorenzo Zanetti on the left.’
