Introducing the 2021 MV Agusta Dragster RR…

Aggressive. Imposing. An uncompromising street fighter with an extraordinary 3-cylinder engine and top components.

2021 is the pivotal year for the Dragster family. The most aggressive of the MV Agusta naked bikes has been updated, with a technological breakthrough designed to make riding even more intuitive and comfortable, without sacrificing the emotion that has always characterised all of the motorcycles produced in Schiranna. To achieve this MV Agusta focused on every aspect of the Dragster: frame, engine, gearbox and electronics.

2021 MV Agusta Dragster RR Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits


The excellence of the MV Agusta chassis architecture is world renowned. Excellence is the fruit of constant evolution, and all the bikes in the Dragster MY21 range have received upgrades to the chassis architecture with a redesigned frame plate that increases torsional and longitudinal rigidity.

The new frame is also accompanied by a new rear suspension system featuring a progressive linkage and a monoshock with spring and revised valving. The fork setting has also revised. The goal? To provide performance, comfort and an unparalleled riding experience in all conditions.


The three-cylinder engine was subject to relentless development activity. The counter rotating crankshaft, unique in the segment, defines its character. With maximum power of 140 HP, the MV Agusta triple remains one of the most powerful in its class. The meticulous fine-tuning work for the 2021 version – Euro 5 compliant – led MV Agusta engineers to further reduce internal friction with DLC treatment with the new tappets and new materials for the valve guides. From the manifold to the silencer, we entirely redesigned the exhaust system to improve power output and consequently obtain even more generous torque and power curves at any engine speed. The injectors are also new, capable of handling an increased injection pressure of 4.0 bar. The ECU firmware was also renewed, as were the engine control algorithms, allowing even more precise and refined throttle management.

The clutch also received a major upgrade, with a more robust clutch basket that makes the bike more manageable and quieter. Quick-Shift EAS 3.0 with up and down function is now in its third generation, with smoother and more precise shifting courtesy of a new sensor and algorithms.


From the dashboard to the cornering ABS, as well as the controls and the ECU firmware. The electronics in the new Dragsters represent a significant leap in quality, thanks in part to the arrival of the IMU inertial platform – an entirely Italian-made project by Milan-based e-Novia, and developed expressly for MV Agusta. This system detects the bike’s pitch and roll, allowing extremely accurate management of all the controls based on lean angle.

The ABS, now developed by Continental, features the cornering function, and the TC slip control works as function of lean angle. Also, thanks to the IMU, the revolutionary FLC front lift control can now execute a controlled wheelie instead of entirely preventing it, maximizing acceleration.The future of technology before your eyes.

All the Dragsters benefit from the new 5.5” TFT dashboard which communictes with the MVRide App. This app can be used, not only to customise every aspect of the bike directly from your Smartphone. Also, you can share your trips on your favourite social media platform. The mirroring function allows navigation with corner-by-corner directions in addition to route recording and sharing.

These features were previously only found on the Brutale 1000 RR. The handlebar controls have a new left-hand block with joystick for browsing through the various dashboard menus and FLC + speed limiting functions on the right hand control.


The saddle was also redesigned with a focus on comfort and features a new foam base.The headlight is full LED and, thanks to the presence of the IMU, has a “cornering” function, lighting up the inside of the turn when the bike tilts, thus increasing active safety. A small dash cover protects the instrument panel and deflects airflow away from the rider’s torso. Its profile has been modified to increase its effectiveness.
