MV Agusta has pulled the wraps off the bike it will campaign in the 2014 World Superbike Championship, the iconic marque opting for a recognisable red and silver livery in-keeping with its heritage.

The F4 RR Superbike makes it much anticipated debut at Phillip Island this coming weekend, with experienced racer Claudio Corti armed with returning the manufacturer to glory on an international stage after many years out of the racing spotlight.

Developed in association with Russian outfit Yakhnich Motorsports, which triumphed in the World Supersport Championship last season, the F4RR had only been seen previously in a standard black livery during private testing and also on the first day of WSBK testing at Phillip Island.

However, studio shots have revealed the final design, with MV Agusta tipping its hat to bikes of old with a red and silver design that evokes memories of Giacomo Agostini and Mike Hailwood, as well as nod to the bike's Italian and Russian associations.

Following the first day of official pre-season testing Corti was 14th fastest 2.3secs off the leading pace.
