MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster RR
MV Agusta’s newly announced Brutale 800 Dragster RR is the belle of the motorcycle ball right now, and why not? It’s visually stunning, painstakingly crafted, and full of both power and poise.
The RR uses the same 798cc triple engine (Maximum power 140 HP-EC (103 kW) at 13,100 rpm) as the Dragster 800, but MV Agusta says it has employed “stoplight burner styling” here, and the aluminum-spoked wheels and plump tires are proof of that. There’s 43mm upside-down Marzocchi forks with rebound-compression damping and spring preload adjustment, and the second generation of the company’s electronics package called ‘Motor and Vehicle Integrated Control System’. One notable feature is the Quickshifter EAS 2.0 system, which allows both clutchless upshifting and downshifting, making MV Agusta the first to offer an electronically-assisted downshifting function in this segment.
