MV Agusta Dragster RR Teased in Video

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Two weeks ago we showed you the photo that MV Agusta was using to tease its latest model to debut at EICMA. The photo featured Kineo-spoked wheels, and the company’s three-piped exhaust can. This of course left us to speculate that the expensive tubeless wheelset would be attached to either a proper ADV bike from MV Agusta, or some sort of café racer.

A few days later, we found the trademark filings for a “Turismo Leggero” motorcycle, whose name similarity to the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce, made us think our first instincts about that teaser photo were right: this new model was some sort of adventure-touring machine. Well…add another theory to the mix.

Showing us that same wheel again in a video, MV Agusta has a teaser video out of what surely must be the Dragster RR. Showing scenes at a dragstrip, with panning cuts to the motorcycle, we can see an “ter RR” revealed. Putting two-and-two together…

Will this RR version of the already released MV Agusta Dragster be the Italian company’s big reveal at EICMA, or will we see the Turismo Leggero as well? We will know more in a months’ time.
