History to give an even more impactful style to the Brutale, his sister Dragster has also devoted herself body and soul to the philosophy of Varese: beauty and envy, without concession.
Of course, MV never lets a model sit quietly in a market; it quickly slips towards the most emotional and / or sensational.
Starting with this galvanized plastic with unique elements. What catches the eye and begins to bewitch are the superb Kineo tangential spoke rims with anodized hubs. Terrible! Scents of bleeding colors assert themselves on the sides of the tank, the fork, the hubs and the fins of the headlight cowling.
Now that it’s bitten, the Dragster 800 RR can spear you with its technical upgrades. The front axle is improved by an inverted fork signed Marzocchi which is lighter and fully adjustable while being "tenuous" by grafting a steering damper.
Careful and indicated when we learn that this RR version spits out a lot of watts in addition. By working on the air box, the exhaust system and by installing a second battery of injectors, the engine manufacturers bring out 15 more horsepower and 5 additional nm from the Italian 3 legs. Outch: the 798 cm3 sends on the RR 140 horses. It causes ! Especially since the MV-Agusta cavalry are boiling hot. On the other hand, the watts, it will be necessary to seek them much higher in the towers. From 11,600 rpm, the maximum power here is 13,100 rpm. Same sanction for the couple, culminating at 1,500 trs more or 10,100 trs.
And 2017, with the application of new standards?!? The Dragster RR retains its maximum power although it adapts to Euro4: 140 hp at 13,100 rpm and a maximum torque of 8.8 mkg at 10,100 rpm provided by the presence of two injectors per cylinder. The 3 cylinder benefits from a whole series of new parts: cylinder head, chain tensioner, camshafts, side casings, valve guides, starter, transmission gears, balance shaft, clutch control, and a gearbox. review.
Shielded with electronics like all members of the family, the 800 Dragster RR is equipped with MVICS 2.0 management. It includes Ride-By-Wire, 8-level traction control, 4 driving modes working with engine management, traction control, throttle sensitivity, engine brake, torque curve, etc. .. Three are pre-programmed according to particular profiles (Sport, Normal, Rain) and one is completely configurable by the user. Bonus of the RR version, the new Quickshifter EAS 2.0, allowing up but also down gears without touching the clutch.
In RR or standard, the 800 Brutale Dragster is still based on its trellis frame in steel tubes connected to beautiful aluminum plates, Brembo radial brakes with 4 pistons around 320 mm discs, a rear planed at the cleat, superb exhaust flutes, a big 200mm rear tire and a punchy design. Three details: the RR takes a small kilo in history, a more comfortable saddle, and a big inflation on the price. The bar of 17 plates has been flown; a hell of a nice whim this Dragster RR.
