The MV Agusta brand had paid its tribute to the United States and the history of the brand; the Brutale America sports the same graphics on the tank that appears on the 1973 750 S. The name America comes from the prominent place in the MV Agusta heritage. The primary reference to the “S America 750”, a model that dates back to 1975 and it boasted an in-line four-cylinder engine with dual overhead camshaft including 75 horsepower and air cooling system.
More than 25-year later, it was the first MV Agusta Brutale, the four-cylinder engine designed by famous Massimo Tamburini to revive the name “America” with an immediately recognizable color scheme: red, white and blue. Fast forward to 2012; it was a time for another rendition of the MV Agusta Brutale America, also on the four-cylinder platform.
The first three-cylinder Brutale America was introduced last year. Because of the success of the version, the CRC workshop conceived a new interpretation of the Dragster 800 RR platform. The brand new “America” reiterates the attractive color scheme on the blue mica base with iridescent reflections and horizontal graphics cuts that improves the original characteristics of the Dragster 800 RR.
The higher part of the fuel tank is decorated with stars like on MV Agusta 750 S from forty-five years ago. The new saddle enhances stitching with gold highlights and unique materials for the areas dedicated to the rider and passenger. All-new beautiful spoke wheels pay regards to the colors of the American flag: blue hub, red spokes and while rim.
The glossy black finishing of the many components like the front mudguard with the stylish MV Agusta logo and both sides of the radiator with the “America Special Edition” decal also enhances the beauty of the instrument cluster cover progressive production number. The MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR America is available in a limited edition of just 200 units, accompanied by authenticity certificates.

The engine can efficiently deliver 110hp at 11,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 83Nm at 7,600 rpm, 25% more than the 2018 MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR. The 90% power and torque are available at 3,800 rpm and it is the best possible balance between ease-of-handling and performance.
Be in Control
The MVICS electronic management system is developed by the MV Agusta’s specifications that include the inertial platform and new Ride-by-Wire throttle control. There are four different engine maps, i.e., three pre-set and one customizable that help Brutale America make the most in all conditions. Furthermore, there are eight different levels of traction control that allow maximum performance and safety, whatever the road conditions are.
Since 2019 MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR America is the latest generation of the MV Agusta, it comes with the newest safety measures. It has two-channel BOSCH 9 PLUS ABS, which is compact and extremely lightweight.
