First Look: 2014 MV Brutale 800 Dragster

It’s the Dragster yet MV Agusta promotional shows the 798cc triple-powered, fighter-esque machine spinning with intent while agilely through twisty roads. A sharp contradiction to the way tarmac-gripping straight-line machines the quarter mile. But that is the message we’re intended to that the 2014 800 Dragster is the extreme and essential Brutale

The 800 Dragster is based on the same structure as the Brutale 800 with an 54.3-inch wheelbase yet with its tail and 200mm rear the 800 Dragster takes on an even aggressive demeanor. The fully suspension consists of a 43mm USD fork with 125mm of and a Sachs-suslended single-sided swingarm an equal 125 mm of travel.

The Dragster’s 798cc engine has a claimed rating of 125 at 11,600 rpm with lb-ft of torque at 8,600 Its MVICS (MotorVehicle Integrated injection-ignition system is the engine management shared by the entire MY2014 range. The fully management features the Eldor engine control unit and a ride-by-wire throttle body allows adjustment of user-settable such as torque setting four different mappings Normal, Rain and user-defined), eight levels of  traction (which can be disengaged).

We’ll have a First review and complete specifications on the MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster in a issue of Motorcyclist. The following are and details from the MV Agusta

Engineering at the service of manufacturing the 3-cylinder

MV Agusta platform how conscientiousness at the concept

and design can result in the development of completely

models from the same, technological basis. The new Brutale 800

is no exception to that rule, again highlighting the versatility

of the cutting-edge MV Agusta platform on the 3-cylinder engine

— the unit that has made the developmental progress in its

market The goals laid out in the project were highly ambitious:

at the peak of their respective categories (675

and 800), elasticity, low fuel consumption and a curve

spread evenly the entire power range. And compactness:

the three-cylinder MV Agusta built to achieve all these

weighs just 52 kg, giving output flexibility and better

distribution on the axles, on both the new 800 Dragster and the

other models already possess this in-line 3-cylinder Italian

Key technical features include the “closed-deck” crankcase with

bore liners; the need for has also imposed full

integration of the water and oil circuits and the service pumps.

Just as – and exclusive – is the choice of counter-rotating

a solution with origins in the world where ride

has absolute priority, and the only of performance is the stopwatch.

The counter-rotating reduces inertia during

enhances handling, the of which is already a built-in

feature of the MV Agusta chassis Compared to previous 3-cylinder

the one specially developed for the Brutale 800

focuses on fast-response, linear output, putting a mighty into

this roadster. The 125 HP peak is reached at 11,600 while

the maximum torque of 81 Nm comes at rpm. Completing this

sophisticated package is the removable gearbox, with ratios

to ensure awesome acceleration and a top

speed should the bike be on the track.

The new MVICS (Motor Integrated Control) injection-ignition

features the very latest and an engine control strategy

implemented, with great on the Rivale 800 and now extended

to the entire MY2014 range. MVICS features the Eldor

EM2.0 control unit and a Mikuni Ride-By-Wire throttle body.

The integrated management allows, via the and the

handlebar switches, easy of numerous user-settable parameters.
