MV Agusta announces the introduction of a limited edition, Lewis Hamilton Dragster RR model. Compared to the regular Dragster RR, the limited edition will have a unique design. Lewis Hamilton will be working closely with MV Agusta CRC design team. The British-born, Formula One sensation will also provide inputs to the engine team. He wants to ensure that the motorcycle provides power output as per his expectations.
Giovanni Castiglioni, President and CEO of MV Agusta, expressed, they are proud to be partnering with Hamilton. And it's a great time and opportunity for customers, who want a motorcycle that has inputs from a Formula One Champion.
Powering the regular Dragster RR is an inline three-cylinder, 798cc liquid cooled engine. MV Agusta engineers have tuned the engine to produce 140 horsepower and 86Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox, and the bike weighs only 168 kilograms.
The Italian superbike manufacturer has promised—the limited edition Dragster RR will be hand built—and assembled by skilled craftsmen at MV Agusta's Schiranna facility. For the moment, we do not have information as to how many of these limited edition Dragsters would be built.
But, we do know Lewis Hamilton loves speed, and was recently spotted burning rubber on an MV Agusta. The British racer drives for Mercedes-AMG team and so far has won two Formula One World Championships.
