MV Agusta Dragster: The teaser video …and the price

Here comes the teaser video of the Dragster 800. The single seat sports bike does not really remind of the Ducati Diavel in terms of styling as it was early speculated, except from the saddle area. It looks like a lighter Brutale, featuring higher handlebars and possibly an extended swingarm. The engine looks the same with the Brutale. The handling seems quite good from this short video. 

Additionally the price of the upcoming bike has been leaked in USA. The EAS ABS version costs the same with the Rivale EAS ABS ($10999), which is $1200 more expensive than the Brutale EAS ABS variant.

The MV Agusta Dragster gets EPA approval in the US

The upcoming MV Agusta Dragster is based on the Brutale 800. The Dragster is expected to resemble to the Ducati Diavel concept, thus a longer wheelbase and suspensions changes are expected compared to the Brutale bike. It features the same 800 c.c. engine with the Brutale, which delivers 125 bhp/11600 rpm and 8.3kgm /8600 rpm (60 ft lbs) torque. 
The Dragster has just got EPA and CARB (Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board) certifications, required for USA imports. It will be introduced at the Eicma motor show in November.
