What differs the -15 to -17?

This Tuesday I was about to travel to Germany to have a look at the F4RC -15 they still had.
Sad to say I'm too late and it is sold as of today.

So, what's different on the -17 F4RC? Can I fit the OEM -15 fairings directly on the -17? Are all the fasteners the same? Bolts?
Would the dual pipe exhaust fit too? Is it the exact same frame all around?

What's new about the -17? More HP? Electronics?

I was going to change just about everything anyway so if I can make the -17 look like a -15 I will be very happy.

Thanks.

see my thread....so far all fits on a 2010 F4..

As far as i know no difference other than new paint scheme (and SC exhaust)....but I am no expert.

I am sure you can make the termi fit one way or another.

Word of caution though, its not easy getting the AMG fairings from MV...I'm waiting 2 months for the rhs fairing...

This Tuesday I will be visiting a MV Agusta Center here in Sweden. Never even heard of them.
The owner seems to be an enthusiast.

From what I found out the -17 is the same engine as the -15 and has the same electronics apart from the wheel lift control front and rear.

Would be interesting to see what the difference is between the 1090cc and 998cc since the 998cc has more power.

Exciting

What 1090 cc??

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

One upcoming difference will be the latest Euro emissions regs - causing larger pipes and less outright power.

Take a chance while you still got the choice.

I've mistaken. I thought the 1090RR Brutale was a 1090cc-engine. Just learned it is the 1078cc. Sorry to confuse.

Interesting to see that the F4RC has more HP, AND torque than a 1078-engine.
It would be the same basis on all the inline 4 from MV.

I compared the -15 to -17 to detail today and it's the same everything. Let's see what the dealer says on Tuesday.

Is it still possible to get OEM parts to a -99 MV Agusta?

The RC has not more torque than the 1078 F4. Mine delivers 130 NM on the rear wheel. I doubt the RC will make that. In practice I even think the 1078 will be faster.

I visited the dealer and he told me there is no way I can buy a -17 and register it in EU anywhere bc of euro4 standard. Jesus Christ.....

He then found a -16(there is no -15 according to him) which he will try to get for me before January 1st. If all goes well we will register it for one day this year and it will be road legal.

Hope for the best.

The guy had 3 MV's for his private collection. One -99 F4 with all magnesium parts there is and signed by Tamburini himself. My friend fell in love with the 1090 Brutale.

There will be a new engine for 2018. If this doesn't go well I will wait for the new one. But I still want the AMG F4RC. It's insanely beautiful. The perfect creation in my opinion.
