2015 EICMA: MV Agusta Dragster RR LH44

MV Agusta has decided to grace a little extra love on the already impressive Dragster RR by creating an exclusive, limited edition MV Agusta Dragster RR LH44. Capitalizing on the special relationship the marque has with F1 racing, having produced two special series F4 MV Agusta’s dedicated to Ayrton Senna (the F4750 in 2002 and the F41000 in 2006), the new Dragster model carries the name of the three time world champion, Lewis Hamilton.

According to MV, the pairing share some similar qualities: “They are both radical and extreme as regards style, are obsessive about detail, exuberant, bold and fear no rivals.” Consequently, the LH44 adds high-end features to the already well-appointed RR for a limited run of 244 hand-built motorcycles.

Lewis Hamilton played an integral role in choosing the livery of the LH44 which consist of a pearl white paint scheme and panther logo, both of which are taken from his helmet. His 44 race number graces both sides of the bike – and the ignition key. The seat is an Alcantara quilt pattern, and many of the parts, such as brake lever, handlebars, fuel filler cap, and brake master cylinder cover, are constructed of Ergal (7075 aluminum alloy) in a special anodized red finish. This read also carries over to the logos, frame, footpegs and spoked wheels. Then there are the contrasting matt black components: the side stand, frame and foot peg brackets.

In keeping with the F1 theme, much of the carbon fiber bodywork wears a matt 3K finish. Hamilton’s 44 race number is displayed in a primary position on the front of the bike. Additionally, a numbered limited edition plate also is emblazoned with the number 44 and Hamilton’s signature panther icon plus his autograph.
