MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR & Dragster 800 RR

MV Agusta has lifted the lid on two brand new stunners ready for 2015 ahead of the EICMA Milan motorcycle show; ladies and gentlemen, may we introduce you to Brutale 800 RR and Dragster 800 RR.

We understand that MV Agusta had intended to keep the bikes and their specs all wrapped up until the show in two weeks but thanks to a couple of foreign websites the Italian firm pressed the publish button early for us all.

Both street-fighter style bikes use the existing 798cc triple-cylinder as seen in the base model Brutale yet it now produces an extra 15bhp, up to 140bhp and an additional 5Nm of torque yet the spec sheets of both models revealed today claim a similar top speed of 153mph.

The RR badge is usually reserved for the 4-cylinder machines from MV but these two new high spec machines are not only blessed with a prestigious name but both come with ABS, Brembo brakes, Marzocchi forks, a quickshifter and an 8-stage manually adjustable steering damper, just what you’d always wanted, right?

Both bikes also come with three factory standard engine maps; Sport, Normal and Rain, as is the norm these days. Also, the rider can personalise their own custom maps which include engine response, rev limiter, engine torque response, throttle sensitivity and engine braking. All of which is controlled via the switches on the handlebar.

UK prices have yet to be revealed but according the official MV website, the Euro price for the Brutale 800RR is €13,980 while the Dragster 800RR weighs in at €16,290. 

Keep your eyes on Bike Social because we’ll be bringing you the first test ride of each bike very soon!
