Official pictures and details of the 2014 MV Agusta Brutale Dragster 800 have been revealed by the Italian manufacturer. To start with the new motorcycle was being referred to as the Dragster 800 until MV Agusta clarified in a statement saying “with consummate Italian craftsmanship, the Brutale 800 Dragster re-evokes the epic DNA of the ‘dragster’ race bikes, specifically built to release their explosive power in the few seconds that separate clutch release from the checkered flag. Seconds as scorching hot as the rubber left smoking on the tarmac.”
