MV Agusta is most likely to introduce a new bike based on its recent Brutale 800 Dragster, called the Dragster 800 RR. At least this is what the new teaser the Varese manufacturer has released on the Internet shows us. While the details of the new machine are rather on the scarce side, we could find some important aspects to support the supposition.
Of course, the tank logo detail is exceptionally similar to that of the Dragster 800, with the digits being the most eloquent detail. We should also add the hard-to-mistake-for-anything-else three-way exhaust which is basically identical to that of the current dragster, as far as the video teaser lets us perceive. Obviously, the ample curve of the rider’s seat is yet another indication which makes us believe we’re looking at the RR version of the Dragster 800.

The image showing the handlebars is fuzzy and it’s hard to be 100% whether they’re clip-ons or not, even though we’d rather go with the nay version. Some voices even say that the Dragster will in fact be Roadster, and until the real name of the bike is revealed, anything goes.
The teaser photo MV Agusta released days ago shows a CNC anodized aluminium rear hub with wire spokes, and a similar image was observed in the video teaser, so we might expect a dash of retro styling, too.

A tribute to Massimo Tamburini

MV Agusta’s new bike is said to be a tribute to the late designer Massimo Tamburini, one of the pivotal figures in the history of the Varese manufacturer. Tamburini is the man behind the design of the original Brutale and the F4, and he passed away in early April this year, losing the battle with cancer at the age of 70.

At the same time, the CRC badge which can be seen adorning the tail section of the upcoming RR machine is yet another detail which makes us believe that the RR will be more than a Dragster 800 with a fancy livery. CRC stands for Castiglioni Research Centre, the headquarters of MV Agusta’s high-performance machine development and obviously, the former “home” of Tamburini.

So we might expect that the Dragster/Roadster (or maybe Speedster) 800 RR will also sport few extra horsies and will be loaded with all the top-notch electronics other sport bikes are equipped with. We’ll be showing you a bevy of close-up photos from EICMA in early November, so check back with us. Follow the link for more photos of the MV Agusta Brutale Dragster 800.
