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.
