Technology, quality, and appeal of the MV Agusta at a competitive price. The Red Range, which consists of three models (Dragster 800, Brutale 800, and Turismo Veloce 800) and is aimed at MV Agusta enthusiasts, is the ideal starting point into the world of Italian three-cylinder bikes. Get on an MV without compromising any technical or stylistic features that have made the “Meccanica Verghera” brand so well-known.

The color is the first distinguishing element of the Rosso Range, as its name suggests. The design is enhanced by the red foundation beneath the superstructures, alternated with an attractive black finish. This combination is the only one available for the three models in this series.

The lower end price is made achievable by the efficient implementation of manufacturing process industrialization while keeping our high product quality standards. When compared to the usual setup, the variations are minor. The wheels on the Brutale and Dragster are the same as the ordinary models but without the surface machining on the spoke profiles, which is the most noticeable detail. The advanced electronics, including the immobilizer, are identical to the conventional models, as are the instrumentation and controls.
