2022 MV Agusta Dragster Rosso

2022 MV Agusta Dragster Rosso: The Approachable Naked Dragster

With the DNA and design of MV Agusta, the Dragster is now closer to users with an access model in their 2022 lineup called Rosso, which was already available in other models from the brand.

The MV Agusta Dragster Rosso has the powerful 798cc three-cylinder engine and is now adapted to Euro5 regulations. As a result, the maximum speed of this Italian “muscle bike” is 146 mph offering great acceleration as a good dragster motorcycle should.

MV Agusta has equipped the Dragster Rosso with a new set of electronics that helps control its power. It comprises a new IMU, an electronic injection system to control and manage different performance parameters. In addition, it displays all this information on the new 5″ color TFT screen, with connectivity to mobile phones through the MVRide app.

Another novelty is the new Full LED lighting system, which has a curve function to improve lighting when tilting along with a new seat, and new ergonomics to improve aerodynamics.

Regarding the suspensions, the MV Agusta Dragster mounts a Marzocchi inverted telescopic fork with a fully adjustable t, while at the rear, it equips an adjustable Sachs monoshock.

In the braking department, MV Agusta provided the Dragster with floating discs with Brembo 4-piston radial calipers. It also has an ABS cornering function.

The 2022 MV Agusta Dragster Rosso starts at $15,600 USD / $19,490 CAD

2022 MV Agusta Dragster Rosso Features


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.


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.


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).
