The 2017 MV Dragster 800 RC is the supernaked to have. Despite what Lewis Hamilton might say, this one is just so much better than last year's Dragster RR LH44

After the F3 RC and the F4 RC, MV Agusta have announced a new addition to the ‘Reparto Corse’ family - the new Dragster 800 RC, which is based on the earlier Dragster 800 RR. With 140 horsepower at 13,100rpm from its three-cylinder 798cc engine, racing-derived counter-rotating crankshaft, LCD digital instrumentation the full monty MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) electronics suite, with integrated 8-level traction control and Bosch 9 Plus ABS with RLM, it's one hell of a supernaked. The Dragster RC's four riding modes allow the rider to customise engine response, torque delivery, throttle sensitivity and engine braking, while an electronic quickshifter facilitates clutchless upshifts and downshifts.

Since this is an RC model, the Dragster 800 RC gets carbonfibre front mudguard, radiator heat deflectors and front fairing, with forged alloy wheels and red anodized finish on the fully adjustable USD front forks. The Sachs monoshock at the rear is also fully adjustable, of course, and the bike gets MV's standard steel-tube trellis frame, with aluminium side plates and single-sided aluminium swingarm. Brembo brakes, with twin 320mm discs and radial-mount 4-piston calipers at front comprise the stopping hardware, while the 200-section rear tyre provide more than adequate grip, along with the requisite visual drama. The MV 800 Dragster RC weighs 168 kilos dry, and has a top speed of 245kph. Production of this machine is limited to 350 units, so get your orders in now. And, yes, if you want an MV Dragster, this is definitely the one to have. It's just so much better than last year's Dragster RR LH44.
