MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR Pirelli Debuts as Limited Edition

What would life be without another “limited edition” model from MV Agusta? This installment sees another collaboration between two Italian motorcycle stalwarts, as MV Agusta has partnered with Pirelli to create the MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR Pirelli.

At the core of the project is the MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR, with its three-cylinder engine that makes 140hp in stock trim, and was recently updated for the 2018 model year because of Euro4 homologation.

From there, the Pirelli machine is a cosmetic exercise, taking the freshly updated Dragster 800 RR streetfighter model, and adding design elements created by the Pirelli Design team.







These highlights include two models, one done in yellow and black, while the other is in a white and blue livery.

Both machines incorporate several nods to the Pirelli tire brand, most notably the tank pad and dash fairing, which have special made rubber pieces with the distinct “flash” logo found on the Pirelli Supercorsa SP tires.

Those tires also feature on the Dragster 800 RR Pirelli, and come with special color graphics to match the bike, and can be ordered from Pirelli, as well.







Other custom bits include the custom seat, made by the Castiglioni Research Center, which also features the “flash” logo and color-matching panels. The exhaust tips have also been coated with a special ceramic-based paint, which makes for a subtle touch.

Of course, the real draw are the eye-catching liveries, which feature the Pirelli and “Diablo” logos from the brand.

The MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR Pirelli is available only as a limited edition, though it is not clear how many units will be produced and what pricing will look like for American buyers.  We would expect roughly a $3,000 premium over the standard Dragster 800 RR model.
