2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800RC SCS: RACING DNA.

Introducing the 2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800RC SCS…

Dragster was born to impress, both at rest and while in motion. Reaction at first sight is pure shock, when you hear it screaming you think “I need it!”. We were told this was madness. We didn’t listen.

A special livery, SC-Project exhaust with a dedicated ECU control unit and the forged aluminum wheels are the finishing touches given to the Dragster 800 RC by the MV Agusta Reparto Corse engineers.

Starting with the 2020 series, the Brutale 800 RR SCS, Dragster 800 RR SCS and Dragster 800 RC SCS feature the revolutionary Smart Clutch System, joining the Turismo Veloce 800 Lusso SCS and Turismo Veloce 800 RC SCS. This system, exclusively designed by MV Agusta, enhances the Brutale 800 RR’s unique dynamic features, accentuating its already famous ease of use in relation to performance. The Dragster 800 RR SCS earns a point for even faster acceleration, with less effort to control, whether you are looking for maximum performance or riding in daily traffic, including at lower speeds.

The design and technical details of each MV Agusta are the result of the conceptual syn- thesis of a development process which emphasizes leadership without compromise. Style is a promise of unrivalled riding pleasure. The details only add to its exclusivity, reaffirming it year after year. This company philosophy is at the core of every model, designed and created in Italy.





2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800RC SCS Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Even in this version, the Dragster remains true to itself and is immediately recognisable. The cut tail, the aggressive handlebars and the huge rear wheel are packaged in an exclusive livery enhanced by the all front fork’s dedicated colour.

The weight distribution, the refined chassis and suspension as well as the Dragster’s unique character are the main features of a machine that was created for the most demanding enthusiasts.

With its 52 kg and its contained dimensions, the three-cylinder of the Dragster 800 RR is the ideal choice to optimise the distribution of weight. The counter-rotating crankshaft is key to enhancing its dynamics, whilst its incredible performance is due to the new design of the airbox and the improved exhaust.

The three-cylinder engine powering the Dragster 800 RC develops 140 Hp at 13.100 rpm and a maximum torque of 87 Nm at 10.100 rpm, with a fluid delivery at lower revs and an extraordinary acceleration harnessed only by the rev limiter stepping in at 13.200 rpm.

The Dragster 800 RC features the latest evolution of the MVICS system. On top of full multi-map Ride By Wire, it has an 8-level traction control system and a sophisticated EAS 2.0 electronic up & down gearbox mated to a hydraulic slipper clutch. The electronic injection system has two injectors per cylinder with three 50 mm diameter throttle bodies.

When there’s nothing else to worry about than riding pleasure, fun is at its top, especially when your safety is guaranteed by a Bosch 9 PLUS two channels ABS system with Rear Wheel Lift-up Mitigation. The RLM system shoots in to mitigate excessive braking action on the front wheel and avoid rear-wheel lift.

MV Agusta offers a NEW 3 YEARS WARRANTY on the whole range, with a great service support for all customers. Customize your experience riding a model, discovering special kits and the vast range of readily available spare parts.




2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800RC SCS Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Enjoy the benefits of the latest-generation gear box and its unique functional features while relishing in the sheer, unadulterated joy of riding and the pleasure of the gear change that all motorcycles should offer. The ambitious SCS 2.0 Smart Clutch System, of- fered exclusively by MV Agusta, promises all this and more for street bikes, revolution- ising the very idea of motorcycle gear shifting.

Cogs, the gear lever, the clutch lever: with the SCS system, every- thing remains right where it is, enabling the rider to interact with the motorcycle just as they always have. In fact, the up and down- shifts are “traditional”, using a foot control assisted by the two- directional EAS 2.1 quickshift system. The SCS 2.0 Smart Clutch System, developed by MV Agusta in collaboration with Rekluse, disengages automatically when the motorcycle is stopped. The Smart Clutch System eliminates the need to engage the clutch lever when coming to a stop or pulling away. With this system, riding becomes infinitely more fluid and intuitive. The system has been developed and refined to fully optimise the ideal interaction between the clutch plate and the output performance of the MV Agusta three-cylinder engine. The engineers identified the perfect bite point, enabling the rider to pull away with a smooth- ness that would be difficult to replicate with a manual clutch or other assisted gear systems. Furthermore, the SCS 2.0 system offers another key advantage. It doesn’t involve the addition of any significant weight, given that the weight difference compared to a traditional clutch is a mere 36 grams, in line with MV Agusta’s concept of maximum lightness and effectiveness. MV Agusta has also evaluated many very different automatic clutch systems, but only the SCS has the ideal combination of performance and ease of use, as well as having an undeniable strength with its very competitive weight. At only 30 grams more than the standard clutch, it is superior to other popular solutions, such as the Dual Clutch, which are functional but significantly heavier by 10 kg or more. The technical choice is the result of a thorough analysis comparing the pros and cons of various solutions.

The Brutale 800 RR SCS and Dragster 800 RR SCS both feature the highly advanced te- chnical specifications of the standard versions. The 798 cc three-cylinder engine with counter-rotating crankshaft has a maximum power of 140 hp (103 kW) and maximum torque of 87 Nm (8.87 kg-m).

The electronic engine management system with MVICS 2.0 and Eldor engine control unit is particularly precise and effective, offering riders a selection of four riding modes – three pre-set and one Custom. The traction control system, continuously updated and refined to offer enhanced performance and safety features eight levels of adjustment and is easily configured in the intuitive dashboard menu. The extensive electronic control platform includes the Bosch 9 Plus twin channel ABS system mated to a state of the art Brembo braking system with twin 320 mm front disks and 2 four-piston radial brake calipers and a 220 mm diameter disk with a twin piston rear brake caliper. The ALS steel-tube trellis frame with cast aluminium side plates is complemented by the stylish single-sided rear swingarm, which on the Dragster holds the 200/50-17 tyre mounted on a spoked wheel with a 6.0 in rim (180/55-17 on the Brutale, with a 5.50 in spoked rim). The SCS 2.0 Smart Clutch System, with the Radius CX automatic clutch engagement system, and billet CNC-machined clutch hub and basket utilizing advanced low friction DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coated drive pins and controlled by advanced ECU torque control strategies, is leading edge technology that’s exclusive to MV Agusta.

As with most MV Agusta models, the Brutale/Dragster 800 RR SCS have also become instant classics, with their contemporary lines and technology, already a milestone in design and inspiring concepts.

Precisely due to its design, it has become evident that, starting with the 650 engine version, many of the style choices which are new with this model have clearly left their mark on the market, inspiring the competition’s offerings and, above all, influencing taste and customer expectations. Furthermore, one of the most obvious signs of a project’s validity is its longevity: To the benefit of the value of its products and the customer’s investment, MV Agusta is consistent in its policies, which contain continual and innovative technical updates, as is the case with the SCS, along with a unique loyalty to the style of the original model. At the same time, the pursuit of exclusive technical solutions is part of MV Agusta’s long-term strategy since the launch of the first F4 and the Brutale. The two models, with a 749 cc four- cylinder in-line engine, offered cutting-edge details, unique in its effectiveness and completely original. For the engine, we recall, for example, the combustion chamber with the radial arrangement of the four valves, the central position of the distribution chain, its extreme compactness and its high specific power. The chassis was even more innovative, if that’s even possible. The frame had a steel pipe trellis structure with aluminium plates and there was the legendary swing arm, going through the oversized (by the standards of the time) but functional fork to gain effectiveness from the front axle which went down in motorcycle history.
