2019 MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR America: Paying Respect

One of the most iconic motorcycle models in MV Agusta’s storied history is the America of the 1970s. Instantly distinctive, certain America examples can demand a six-figure price at auction.

The 2019 MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR America pays homage to the original, featuring paint and graphics that celebrate to colors of the United States flag.

Behind the 2019 MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR America is the Castiglioni Research Center in the Republic on San Marino, which was founded by Claudio Castiglioni over 25 years ago. CRC is MV Agusta’s R&D department, with 40 employees who have an eye to the future, as well as the past.

With a paint scheme of America Blue/White/Ago Red/Deep Black, this iteration of the Dragster 800 RR muscle bike is not easily dismissed. Look more closely, and you’ll notice an America Special Edition decal at the instrument cluster, along with the production number of the motorcycle—only 200 Dragster 800 RR America motorcycles will be on offer. Buyers also get a certificate of authenticity. On top of the triple clamp is a numbered hard part with graphics number the motorcycle.

The wheels are striking, with red hubs, blue spoke retainers, and white rims. In the back, a 200mm wide Pirelli Diablo Rosso II is an attention-getting device in conjunction with a single-sided swingarm. Let your eyes flow upward, and you’ll notice the gold stitching in the swooping red seat.

Underneath the paint and graphics is the standard Dragster 800 RR, which is powered by a 140-horsepower DOHC triple-cylinder powerplant. The six-speed transmission gets a quickshifter, as well as suspension from Marzocchi (front) and Sachs.
