2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800 RC SCS [Model Overview]

2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800 RC SCS

The 2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800 RC SCS: Limited Edition Naked Muscle

The 2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800 RC SCS is one of those special bikes that comes around once a model generation. Offered in a limited edition by the Italian manufacturer, the RC stands for “Reparto Corse,” or Racing Department. It features a 798cc inline-three engine that chucks out 140 HP and 64 lb-ft of torque, in a bike that weighs just 370 lbs wet.

Of course, being from the racing side of things, the bike gains forged aluminum wheels, a dedicated ECU, a special exhaust developed by SC Project, and a bespoke livery. Like the other Dragster 800 models, it also features anti-wheelie control, dual-zone ABS, an easy-to-read full color TFT dash, full cornering traction control, and MV Agusta’s EAS 2.0 electronic quickshifter.

The SCS in the name stands for Smart Clutch System, a new feature that MV Agusta has developed to make riding more enjoyable. While in motion, gear shifting is done normally, however when coming to a stop, the system will automatically disengage the clutch. The same happens when you set off from a stop, automatically feathering the clutch for you as you add power until it fully engages while you accelerate.

The 2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800 RC SCS starts at approximately $27,390 USD / $34,760 CAD, as it is a limited edition model and must be ordered in Euros (€22,600).

2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800 RC SCS Features


When there’s nothing else to think about but riding, your fun and enjoyment are increased, especially when your safety is taken care of by the Continental ABS system with cornering function. And with Rear Wheel Lift-up Mitigation, you’ve got one less thing to worry about: the system actually intervenes to mitigate the pressure exerted on the front brake to avoid unwanted rear-wheel lift.


Optimised to reduce friction, with a mass of just 52 kg and modest dimensions, the three-cylinder engine of the Dragster RC SCS guarantees even better weight distribution. The counter-rotating crankshaft enhances its dynamics, while its extraordinary performance is assisted by a completely redesigned exhaust system.


Featuring the latest evolution of the MVICS system, the Dragster RC SCS also has full multi-map Ride-by-Wire with 8-level traction control. The sophisticated EAS 3.0 electronic up & down gearbox, updated and boasting a new sensor, is paired with a hydraulic slipper clutch. The electronic injection system uses two injectors per cylinder with three 50 mm diameter throttle bodies.
