The MV Agusta Dragster is classified as a streetfighter mainly due to being taller and more upright than naked bikes. Back in its initial launch, the Dragster 800 was able to put out a promising performance in terms of sales. It was able to exceed MV Agusta’s sales predictions by three times. In the Philippines, there are three variants of the Dragster 800, which are the Dragster 800 RR, Dragster 800 RR Pirelli, and the top-range Dragster 800 RC.
The core of the machine is a 16.5-liter liquid-cooled, four-stroke DOHC 798cc engine that can churn 140 hp and 87 Nm of torque. This setup comes with a 6-speed manual transmission.
Among its notable safety features are a full set of ABS and traction control system, slipper clutch, steering damper, and an engine immobilizer. Meanwhile, convenience and technology include a full set of LED lighting systems, pass switch, quick shifter, and digital display screen. Like the Brutale, it also has four riding modes, which are Normal, Rain, Sport, and Custom.
