2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800RR SCS: THE STREET FIGHTER.
Introducing the 2021 MV Agusta Dragster 800RR SCS…
DRAGSTER AT HEART
The bobbed tail, the spoke wheels and the beguiling curves of the fuel tank and headlight framing the in-line three-cylinder engine: this Dragster exudes exuberance and character. Born to inspire and ready to burn the tarmac.
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.
MV AGUSTA BRUTALE 800 RR SCS AND DRAGSTER 800 RR SCS.
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 800RR SCS Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features
LESS IS MORE
An over-the-top bike for irreverent riding. Thanks to its advanced Smart Clutch System and assisted two-way quick shift, you can forget the clutch, even to stop and go, and concentrate on the pleasure of riding.
Nothing less than shocking is expected from such a bike in terms of performance: The Dragster 800 RR SCS delivers on this point with its rocket-like acceleration, enhanced by the Smart Clutch System boosting performance well beyond that of traditional-clutch bikes.
FLUID, MORE INTUITIVE RIDE
The SCS 2.0 system doesn’t really change the way the rider interacts with the bike: gears, shift and clutch levers are there, where they’ve always been, but one can simply decide not to use the clutch. Extreme functionality, without giving up on the fun.
ENGINE – UNRIVALLED
The 140 hp and 87 Nm three-cylinder engine on the Dragster 800 RR SCS is strikingly reactive thanks to the advanced electronic management of the MVICS system. Combined with leading-edge Smart Clutch System it delivers its full potential, allowing for clutch-free stopping and re-launching, full throttle.
ELECTRONICS – ULTIMATE EFFICIENCY
The SCS 2.0 system was designed for a perfect matching of the clutch action and the engine delivery curve. Thanks to the electronic assistance, SCS 2.0 equipped bikes consistently beat traditional-clutch models in acceleration performance.
SAFETY – POWER AND CONTROL
The brake system on the Dragster lives up to the bike’s reputation for performance: two 320 mm-diameter floating discs and radial four-piston calipers, assisted by latest-generation ABS, lightweight and compact.
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 800RR SCS Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
SCS IS A NEW STEP ALONG A BOLD PATH TO INNOVATION
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.
STYLE AND TECHNOLOGY
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.
