MV Agusta delivers another installment of their sweet Brutale and Dragster 800 RR roadsters, this time with a Pirelli limited edition, and the bikes look as sharp as it gets
Welcome new members of the Brutale 800 RR family, the limited edition Pirelli machines made by MV Agusta. As if the current Brutale and Dragster 800 RR were not gorgeous enough, House Varese decided to spice things up a bit and pay tribute to Pirelli, their long-standing partner, with special motorcycles that surpassed the existing models.
The MV Agusta website shows the Brutale bike in two color schemes, Red & Black Matt plus Blue & Nardo Grey, and we’ve gotten some pics of the Dragster in Yellow & Nardo Grey, a plus white/blue/black combo white rims.
What we loved about the MV Agusta 800 RR Pirelli machines’ livery is how the sleek color accents complement the base paint. From the rim stripes to the generous Pirelli lettering on the tanks, everything is neatly laid out to perfection. The new Dragster even takes things a step up the style ladder with the white model boasting matching rims and blue hubs and frame to complement the build. It would have been cool to see the blue-accented Brutale get a blue frame, as well, instead of the black one.
The Brutale 800 RR comes with redesigned counter-crankshaft and primary gear, improved cam phasing and revamped valves, while the gearbox was also overhauled for smoother, quicker and more precise shifting. The engine sports four riding modes, Normal, Sport, Rain and Custom, with no less than 8 levels of adjustable traction control. Rear Wheel Lift-up Mitigation is standard, and comes with the Bosch 9 Plus ABS. The wheels come straight from the acclaimed F4 and are shod with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP rubber.
Brutale 800 RR Pirelli sports the 798cc three-cylinder engine that produces 140 HP at 12,300 rpm and a peak torque of 87 Nm at 10,100 revs. The 43 mm Marzocchi USD fork is complemented by a progressive Sachs monoshock. Braking power comes from dual 320 mm Brembo discs with radial 4-pot calipers in the front aided by a single 220 mm rear rotor and a two-pot caliper. No idea on how many Brutale 800 RR Pirelli MV Agusta plans to build, but if you’re in for this €19,000 jewel, you’d better hurry.
There’s not much data on the new Dragster 800 RR Pirelli at the moment of writing, as it doesn’t even appears on the official website yet, but we can guesstimate that it would simply follow suit to the Brutale on both the tech side and the price range. The standard Brutale 800 RR is €15,770, while the Dragster 800 RR is €18,900, so we might see the Pirelli edition of the latter arriving with a price tag reading north of €22,500.
