The MV Agusta 800 three-cylinder has been tuned to deliver optimized performance for the naked duo. Claimed peak power of 140 hp is only fractionally lower than the 148 hp of the F3 800. Do not jump to the conclusion that MV Agusta has just adopted a slightly de-rated F3 powerplant for the Brutale/Dragster chassis. The new version was developed from the 125-hp Brutale 800 unit to maintain the great virtues of that engine, namely its glorious flexibility and smooth throttle response from 3,000 rpm up. The compression ratio stays at a robust 13.3:1 on all the versions to keep the thermodynamic efficiency at the highest level possible within the limits allowed by present gasoline standards.
As we know, the Dragster 800RR is just a Brutale with a more aggressive styling and a fatter rear tire—same engine, same chassis, same related settings. And it has a narrower and flatter handlebar. Given its size, the fatter tire applies a lower specific pressure on the ground, which means it warms up slower on the cold tarmac. The bike tries to stand up and the rear loses traction when forced. But no real problem. When the fat Pirelli Diablo Rosso II 200/50-17 starts biting, the Dragster 800RR suddenly turns into a great lean machine, totally fun and instilling absolute confidence in the rider.
