MV Agusta launches an upgraded version of Dragster 800 RR at the EICMA motorcycle show – with improved electronics, design upgrades, and more!

Posted On : 13-11-2017

Italian motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta has just announced an upgrade of the Dragster 800 RR released in 2015, at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy. It is, coincidentally, the place the company was founded back in 1945.

 


Besides the fact that the 798cc three-cylinder engine powering the bike is now Euro-4 compliant, this upgraded iteration of the bike also boasts upgraded electronics. Improvements made are the ride-by-wire throttle system, as well as the 8-stage traction control system, which hones the operations and performance of the bike.

 


Design and styling modifications have been done too. Adjustable angle handlebars have been installed, as well as a new cover and tank pad which are both made from aluminium. One notable addition is pillion footrests which can be hidden with the help of a bracket, making the bike more aesthetically pleasing as a whole. The tail unit is brand new, and the rear seat has the same colour as the bodywork. The number-plate holder is completely new as well, and a twin LED tail light has been opted out in favour of a single unit.

 

The gearbox and engine casings are also totally new. The gearbox has been improved to make changing of gears easier, along with quicker engagement of gears when selected. The latter ensures the safety of a rider in the event of an accident, helping to soften the impact.

 

The bike will be available in two colour schemes: Pearly white with matt grey and fluorescent red, and glossy grey and fluorescent yellow. It is unknown if the bike will be available in Singapore.
