2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800 Rosso

2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800 Rosso: A Dragster’s Introduction

The 2021 Dragster Rosso is the first step when getting into the Dragster family and is priced as such. It comes in at a lower cost when compared to its RR brother – meaning that it’s a great option for riders seeking the MV Agusta streetfighter experience without paying the premium.

Although you save some money on the bike overall, you do lose some benefits as a result. The motorcycle’s 798cc inline-three engine has been detuned and as a result, sheds a total of 30 horsepower to bring the total power figures to 110 horsepower and 61.2 l-ft of torque. Along with power, you also sacrifice those amazing spoked wheels found on the full RR edition as they are swapped out for traditional cast wheels.

Beyond the detune and some small aesthetic changes, you’ll still have the comfort in knowing that the Italian company doesn’t cut corners when it comes to their “entry-level” motorcycles. Much of the same tech found on the $30k MV Agusta motorcycles in their 2021 lineup make its way across the entire lineup of bikes.

This motorcycle features the same tech features that stretch across many of their motorcycles for the 2021 model year. Bosch ABS (that features rear-wheel lift-up mitigation), an updated ride-by-wire system, and 8-level adjustable traction control.

The 2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800 Rosso starts at $15,630 USD / $12,990 EUR.

2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800 Rosso Features

Control and customisation

The MVICS with full Ride-By-Wire has been further improved. There are eight levels of traction control on offer, and four riding modes: Sport, Race, Rain, Custom. Changing the character of the engine has never been so quick and intuitive — it’s just like having four bikes in one.

Hi-Tech for everybody

For 2021, the Dragster Rosso has received all the technical and electronic updates of the Dragster range, incorporating them into a more urban configuration. The plates on the frame, the new linkage of the shock absorber, the suspension settings, the saddle with brand-new padding: all make the experience of riding the Dragster Rosso more rewarding, with less exertion.

Quality braking system

Performance and safety: mission accomplished thanks to the pair of four-piston Brembo radial callipers on the front end. More latest-generation features include the ABS (anti-lock braking system) developed by Continental, with cornering function and RLM (Rear wheel Lift-Up Mitigation).
