【Test Ride Report】 Moving artwork MV AGUSTA “Dragster 800RR”


When I mentioned MV Agusta, I was impressed by the most beautiful presence at the Milan Motor Show. It was n’t just how elaborate the booth layout was, but that every car on the booth was a work of art. “Motorcycle art” is by no means a worthy name.

A

MV Agusta also advertises himself as an artist in the motorcycle industry, and each product is visually satisfying. And this Dragster800 RR is the masterpiece of its few products, and your satisfaction is definitely not only visual.

A

Dragster 800 RR is considered to be the most stylized car of MV Agusta. The exaggerated body shape, short seat and flying saucer type taillights are highly recognizable. In particular, Dragster800 RR’s iconic spoke wheels reflect MV Agusta’s pursuit of style. No manufacturer uses spoke wheels on a street car with such a modern sport, and MV Agusta is willing to strengthen the strength of the wheel and let it Meet the conditions of use, and the rear wheels also use unilateral spoke wheels without compromise.

Stylization is also reflected in some small details, such as the very classic pipe type three-out exhaust, let people know at a glance that this is a noble MV Agusta. Personally, I like this white wheel very much, because it has a strong contrast with the whole vehicle. With the single rocker design, it is extremely eye-catching.

A

From the side, this car feels very short and powerful, but from the front, it is very burly, especially the exaggerated taillight design at the rear, which makes it a bit domineering. The hollow design under the seat is the finishing touch of the whole car, adding a touch of sensuality to the car’s literary atmosphere. Whether it is a short and sturdy side, or a burly front, it is better to look from above. The seat cushion is less than one narrowest, and the “waist ratio” formed by the fuel tank is like a beautiful Italian girl.

Although the Dragster 800 RR is not a publicly upgraded model, the manufacturer has not neglected its configuration. The 798mL parallel three-cylinder engine has a maximum power of 103kW (140hp) and a maximum torque of 87N · m. It does not seem to be violent, but this car has only 168kg of curb weight. The weight-to-weight ratio in the data is already amazing.

A

For other configurations, the front suspension adopts Marzocchi diamond-coated 43mm inverted front fork, adjustable damping, and the black inner tube is full of high-grade sense. The rear suspension adopts ZF Sachs mid-mounted single-tube rear suspension with adjustable preload. .

A

Due to the lighter body and strong power, the manufacturer equipped the car with 8-stage adjustable steering damping. The brake system is also top-notch. The front wheels are two Brembo opposed four-piston calipers with 320mm floating discs, and the rear wheels are Brembo dual-piston calipers with 220mm brake discs. This is already a public upgrade configuration, but the brake pump is not used. Brembo brand, but adopted the Nissin brand.

In addition to the top hardware configuration, the electronic control system configuration is even more dazzling. Dragster 800 RR is equipped with four driving modes, 8-stage traction control is adjustable, anti-heading system, ABS system, rapid gear shift, in addition to adjusting throttle response, torque output and speed limit, so many functions are all It is displayed in the LCD integrated in the car, so if you want to fully understand the electric control system of this car, it may really take some time to learn.

I said before that this is a very personalized and stylized car. In addition to the stylized appearance, some small details are also interesting. For example, this car’s instrument has a lap recording function, a street Cars equipped with such a function are very rare.

A

At first glance, this car may feel that it is too fighting, not equipped with a rear pedal, but if you look carefully under the rear seat, you will be convinced by the manufacturer’s unique and innovative hidden rear pedal design.

A

There is also the design of the handlebar rearview mirror, wide rear tire configuration of 200/50, short rear seats, original metal pedals, and almost no front fenders … all these make this Dragster800 RR look It is different from other cars and also marks the unique attitude of this car.

A

A

This is not only a car that looks stylized, it is also stylized when you ride it. The low-level handlebar design makes people unconsciously lean forward, accompanied by a slightly irritable exhaust sound, a burst of blood comes to my heart.

A

If you judge this Dragster 800 RR according to the standard of an ordinary street car, it is not a good bike, and it will make you feel hard in the first sitting position. But this is not an ordinary street car, so it sacrifices the comfort of sitting position in exchange for the unity of style.

A

A

In addition to sacrificing sitting posture, it also sacrifices the stability of low speed. This three-cylinder engine is basically “coughing” below 3500r / min. There is no smooth feeling at all. Even if you hold the throttle, you can feel a significant setback.

A

However, the manufacturer also considers that daily riding is not too aggressive, so the true face of this car is deliberately hidden below 7000r / min. When you are driving at low and medium speeds, it is like an ordinary street car. Can fully cope with your daily use.

A

A

But when you pull the speed above 7000rpm, the violent power with the increase of the speed will make you feel the true face of this car. The Dragster 800 RR at this time is like a wild beast, and there is no such thing on its surface. A kind of literary atmosphere, only the roar of the exhaust and the soaring speed.

A

The power of this car is reflected in the absolute thrill of not losing the public to upgrade the supercar while driving. When using the sport mode, the throttle response is very positive. The high output range of 7000-13000r / min is refreshing, and the huge pulling feeling will make your adrenaline soar, and thanks to the reasonable center of gravity distribution, such a light car is added The upper short wheelbase can still maintain good stability at high speeds, which is very rare.

▲ Test on closed roads, please do not imitate

A

The short wheelbase and light weight make this car have smart control, but it does not give you the pleasure you want on the mountain road. It may be because its 200/50 rear tires are too flat, resulting in the middle Low-speed corners will obviously feel a little slow, but this does not prevent you from enjoying the fun it brings to you. This is where Dragster 800 RR’s personality lies.

A

A

In some details, you can also feel the unique personality of this car. For example, this car has daytime running lights, but when you turn on the daytime running lights, you ca n’t turn on the headlights. You can only turn on the daytime running lights. Headlights, the same reason to turn on the headlights can not turn on the daytime running lights, such design logic is very rare.

A

There is also a fairing protective cover on the lower left side of the vehicle, which is the only part made of carbon fiber in the whole vehicle, which is not in harmony with the surrounding parts. The most puzzling thing is that this car has no fuel level display, just an oil lamp is designed under the instrument. Perhaps these casual mixes and designs reflect the artist’s casual side.

A

A

Another point I have to mention is the sound and vibration. Italian cars are always not as delicate as Japanese manufacturers, so this Dragster 800 RR is no exception. Low-speed noisy and noisy sounds and pipe organs are not too close to each other. Even at high speeds, the sound of this car exudes the original mechanical sense, but fortunately these are the feelings of passers-by. When you ride this car, the sound of exhaust will still let you enjoy.

A

The charm of the MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR can’t be summed up in words. Some people feel that the language is never clear. It may be judged by the standard of a conventional street car. It is not a good bike, but it is more like a work of art. Both the appearance and power adjustment are admirable, and even the positioning is in line with these mainstreams. The car is different.

A

In Dragster 800 RR, there is the absolute release of passion for Italians and the relentless pursuit of aesthetics, which also created the reality of MV Agusta niche, because there are too few people who can appreciate it.
