MV Agusta found itself with an unexpected hit after launching the Dragster 800 at the start of this year. Essentially a slightly more radical version of the Brutale 800 equipped with new handlebars, a one-plus-one seat and fatter rear tyre, the Dragster captured the imagination and snarled out of showrooms as fast as the firm from Varese could produce it, despite a higher price.
That success helps explain MV’s decision to push things further with two even more outrageous follow-up triples. The first is the Brutale RR, a hotted-up version of the Brutale 800 with more powerful 140bhp engine, firmed-up chassis and MV’s most sophisticated electronics package yet. Alongside it is the Dragster RR, which updates the Dragster in similar fashion and adds a pair of uniquely eye-catching wire-spoked wheels. https://www.morebikes.co.uk/news/12361/mv-agusta-brutale-800rr-review-dragster-800rr-review/
