2015 MV Agusta Brutale Dragster 800 RR – First Impressions

Our European correspondent, Tor Sagen, got a chance to ride the latest addition to MV Agusta’s lineup, the RR version of the Brutale Dragster 800. Easily recognizable by its wire-spoke wheels with prominent white rims, the RR’s 798cc three-cylinder motor boasts increased power over the standard Dragster, up almost 15 horsepower achieved via mods to its airbox, exhaust and EFI-mapping revisions, the latter which accommodates a second fuel injector for each cylinder. Torque gets a slight bump to 63 lb-ft., with its peak arriving way up at 10,100 rpm instead of the 8600-rpm peak of the base Dragster. The RR is also equipped with a quickshifter EAS system that allows for clutchless upshifts and downshifts, and is aided by a new slipper clutch. U.S. pricing has yet to be announced. Stay tuned for a full review of the MV Agusta Brutale Dragster 800 RR next week.
