First the MV Agusta Brutale 800, then the Rivale 800, and pretty soon the MV Agusta Dragster 800 from the incredibly busy MV Agusta engineers. This smart looking no-nonsense motorcycle uses the 93kW 798cc three-cylinder engine in the same chassis as the MV Agusta Brutale and Rivale, but with naked roadster bodywork.
Expected to arrive in Thailand in the second half of 2014, the Italian manufacturer reckons the MV Agusta Dragster 800 is all about 'a thrilling ride'. The MV Agusta Dragster 800 shares its steel trellis/aluminum alloy plate chassis, fuel tank, suspension, swingarm, exhaust, engine and brakes with the Brutale 800, only the MV Agusta Dragstar 800 gets the updated Bosch 9+ ABS system. To give it the required look, the MV Agusta Dragster 800 features a foreshortened tailpiece and a huge 200 section rear tire. Also novel to the MV Agusta 800 are pegs, front mudguard and lights to differentiate it from other MV Agusta 800s.
The MV Agusta Dragster 800 will weigh around 190 kilograms wet, it will be available in white and grey color options, we can also expect the usual MV Agusta options. The price for Thailand is not yet known.
