MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster, Dare You Ride It?
MV Agusta has just unveiled their first new bike for 2014, the much anticipated Brutale 800 Dragster. The bike surely looks like a lot of high-revving fun, even though some may say that the 125 horsepower @ 11,600 rpm still leaves a lot to be desired. The 3-cylinder engine packs 798cc and 81 Nm of torque at 8,600 rpm which should make aggressive rides on the Brutale 800 Dragster really interesting.
MV Agusta electronics are top-notch, as the Brutale 800 Dragster comes with the MVICS engine management and EAS (which stands for Electronically Assisted Shift) as standard. The Marzocchi USD fork and the Sachs rear shock are both fully adjustable for perfect setups according to the rider and riding style. Brembo brakes are assisted by the Bosch 9+ ABS.
With an aluminium frame and a 16.6-liter tank, the Brutale 800 Dragster weighs in at 167 kg and can ride as fast as 245 km/h where there is enough non governed tarmac.
