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).
