The top spec, Dragster RR-based special edition will be re-introduced in 2018.

The company has taken the wraps off its 2018 Dragster 800 RC. The bike is based on the already tricked-out RR that was added to the line-up in 2017.

The 800 RC (which stands for Reparto Corse, MV Agusta’s racing department) gets carbon-fibre and thermoplastic fairing, radiator air scoops and dashboard cover/fly screen. The bike also features racy livery, and a pair of red, forged nine-spoke wheels.

The bike is powered by a 798cc, triple-cylinder motor that makes 152hp, which is exactly 10hp more than the RR. The engine is mated to a cassette-type six-speed gearbox with MV’s latest EAS 2.0 quickshifter, which works in both directions, assisted by a hydraulic clutch.

The bike’s Motor and Vehicle Integrated Control System (MVICS, MV’s terminology for its rider-aid package) includes four riding modes, including a fully programmable ‘Custom’ mode that lets you configure motor response, torque management, throttle sensitivity, engine braking and the rev limiter – all of it extensively developed for the RC variant. The bike also features a Bosch 9+ ABS unit, with rear-wheel lift-up mitigation (RLM). MV will only be producing 350 units of the Dragster 800 RC.
