Motorcycle maker MV Agusta had
on display at the Eicma 2017, the DRAGSTER RR, which has been renewed both in design
and technical equipment. The motorcycle has been restyled with its front
fairing featuring the elliptic shape of the full-LED headlights. The adjustable
steering damper, secured to the triple clamp by a hand-finished aluminium
element, ensures high level front end performance and represents a real gem.
Regards engine, developed from
the 3- cylinder engine that powers the Brutale 800 and Brutale Dragster 800,
this most recent 3-cylinder version unleashes 140 hp and puts out
Superbike-like revs (maximum power is achieved at 13,100 rpm). The motorcycle
comes with the second-generation MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control
System) electronics platform. The new Dragster RR is available in two colour
variants: metallic carbon black and pearl red, refined yet predatory; pearl red
and pearl white, brawny and brazen.
Meanwhile, after decades of
collaboration, the brand with the long "P" was selected by the
company from Schiranna as sole tyre supplier and, to celebrate this agreement,
a dedicated version of the Brutale 800 RR was designed in a limited production
that can be enhanced with exclusive coloured tyres
The Brutale 800 RR PIRELLI was created
by MV Agusta along with Pirelli Design, the Bicocca laboratory specialised in
conceiving design projects in collaboration with partners par excellence and was
on display in the MV Agusta stand at EICMA
Pirelli and MV Agusta also
announced that they have reached a new partnership agreement based on which
Pirelli has been officially selected as Sole Tyre Supplier for all the
motorcycles manufactured by the company from Schiranna. This means that all the
models currently in production, as well as those that MV Agusta will sell in
the future, will mount Pirelli tyres as standard equipment.
The customisation of this
model in a limited edition focused mainly on the components and colour schemes.
For example, the saddle was custom created for the Brutale 800 RR PIRELLI and
it stands out with its stitching that is coloured to match each of the two
available colour schemes. The headlight unit bracket is painted black, as is
the rear subframe. The airbox output grilles are also painted and the wheel
rims also boast new features: to reduce weight and increase handling, the
engineers decided to mount components derived from the F4, which are
characterised by their racing design, very essential and elegant. The rear rim
also has a wider channel, now 6 inches, to hold the new tyre size which is
specific for this version of the Brutale 800 RR.
Obviously, the tyres also play
a role of primary importance. Compared to the standard model that comes
standard with Diablo Rosso III tyres, the Brutale 800 RR Pirelli mounts Diablo
Supercorsa SP tyres in the 120/70 ZR17 front size and 200/55 ZR17 on the 6”
rear rim made specifically for this model. A rather spectacular option that can
be chosen when you order your Brutale 800 RR Pirelli is the limited edition
tyre with coloured walls.
