2014 MV Agusta Dragster 800 Official Pics Out

Friday, January 31, 2014
MV Agusta posted the first official pictures of its 2014 Dragster 800 on Facebook today, stating “The new Brutale 800 Dragster takes the very concept of 'motorcycling passion' and makes it breathtakingly tangible.”

At its core is the 798cc Triple-cylinder engine used in the Brutale, the DOHC-equipped mill utilizing 12 valves to put out a claimed 125 hp at 11,600 rpm. This means lofting the wheel of the 368-pound Dragster (claimed weight) will be no problem. Fortunately, it will be equipped with MV’s Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control system so riders can dial in output through four riding modes – Sport, Normal, Rain and a custom setting. Switches on the bars will help riders toggle to the desired setting with results displayed on the digital dashboard. The 2014 MV Dragster 800 is also equipped with eight levels of programmable traction control and a ride-by-wire throttle.

The powerful Inline Triple is housed in the same ALS steel tubular trellis frame as the Brutale 800. Suspension will be provided by a fully adjustable 43mm Marzocchi fork teamed with a Sachs rear shock with spring preload adjustment as well as rebound and compression damping. Radial 4-piston Brembo calipers will handle braking on the front, biting into 320mm dual floating discs, while the rear is equipped with Bosch 9 Plus with RLM (rear wheel lift-up mitigation).

While the Dragster 800 shares much of the same architecture as the Brutale 800, a cropped tail section, floating rear fender and 200mm Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tire gives the Dragster its own unique signature. Its footrests are also new. On the front end, MV’s created a new mudguard and redesigned the light to give it a slightly different disposition as well. The 2014 Brutale 800 Dragster is available in White and Matte Metallic Grey colorways. Its price overseas is listed at €13,490 (£11,050).

The 2014 MV Agusta F3 800 recently won our Light-Heavyweight Supersport Shootout and we can’t wait to hear the wail of the Dragster 800’s triple-stacked exhaust. We sense a 1/4-mile showdown with the Ducati Diavel in the near future.

This appears to be a lightly modified Brutale 800, not a unique model offering. What about this sounded like a good idea to MV?

I think MV would come off as a bit less pretentious here if they had just named it the Brutale Dragster, as it just seems to be a slightly modified Brutale... But what do I know :P Not really sure I'd take it to the drag strip anyway.

I'm sure the Diavel will beat the crap out of it if the competition includes Comfort, Touring, etc, but this bike is a looker.
