2015 MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster RR turns up the funky


Take a Brutale 800 RR, add a large dollop of Italian funk and you've got the new MV Agusta Dragster RR!

The 2015 MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster RR is fitted with the same 140bhp 798cc inline-three as the regular Brutale 800 RR, the chassis and suspension are the same, all the electronics remain unchanged and the bike even weighs the same – 168kg dry – but that’s where the similarities end. The Dragster RR rolls on wider rubber – a 200/50 rear tyre as compared to the regular Brutale’s weedy 180/55 number, the wire-spoked 17-inch wheels (with red anodized hubs!) look completely different from the regular Brutale’s 5-spoke alloy hoops, and the Dragster's truncated tail section is a bit weird and funky and cool all at once. The bike looks a bit lower and a bit longer compared to the regular Brutale, but it's actually not - both the regular Brutale 800 and the Dragster 800 RR have the same 1380mm wheelbase. Maybe it's the cut-off tail section that creates the illusion of extra length on the Dragster RR.

The new MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster RR is priced at 16,290 euros and maybe that's not such a bad deal after all...
