Video: MV Agusta Dragster 800 Teaser

With all the details and rumors surrounding the new MV Agusta Dragster, it doesn’t surprise us to see MV Agusta drop us a hint about its newest motorcycle model. Accordingly, we have a teaser video of the Dragster, MV Agusta’s answer to the Ducati Diavel, to show you today.

Based around the company’s three-cylinder 800cc engine, we don’t expect the Dragster 800 to be a turbo, but we do expect it to be muscly and fun bike to ride. With burnouts and wheelies galore, along with a Metallica soundtrack, the Italian brand is certainly making us some promises of that nature, and as usual the bike is a looker to boot.

From the video we can see that the Dragster has upright handlebars, and a very short seat (both in height and in length). This should make for a more upright sitting position for the rider, when compared to the Brutale 800.

Despite the quick-cuts, the Dragster appears to be very similar to the render we saw this weekend, which means the final form is similar to that of the Brutale. From the dash we see the traction control display, and we suspect the machine to have MV Agusta’s latest iteration of its MVICS electronics package.

With this teaser dropping now, expect to see full details of the MV Agusta Dragster 800 soon.

    Two things about this article made me laugh. Enter Sandman. And muscly. LOL!

  • I thought the song choice made the video. I just hoped MV Agusta paid for the rights, because Lars is one litigious mother.

    You’re right about that, JB. “Money Gooood. Napster Baaaad.”

    It’s a Benelli TNT/Diavel love-child :)

    I don’t think they need it. I don’t think the people really want it. I understand that MV already sits in a niche market but how many people would rather have the Brutale? Why not build a proper 800cc adventure bike and really pick up some sales? Then again, maybe the second debut of 2014 is exactly that… fingers crossed.

    yep, perfect song choice, synced even the the chain jumping, and all sorts of cute things. Well nice vid.

  • Sure enough, MV Agusta has pulled the original video with the Metallica soundtrack, and replaced it with a general heavy metal one. Lawyers…

    New video is embedded, for those that missed it.

    Want one.
