THE DRAGSTER IS UNMISTAKABLE
Always a fan favorite, the new Dragster is a stunning and exciting example of Italian ingenuity, attention to detail, and, most importantly, a passion to create a vehicle that excites. True to its heart, the new Dragster incorporates high-end engineering mixed with motorcycle racing DNA.
NOTHING BUT THE BEST
While its Italjet heritage is clearly visible, it is a modern re-birth going a step further. Similarities with the original Dragster from 1998 like the trellis frame and the center hub steering remain. However, the use of modern designs and materials, the powerful 200cc four-stroke engine, and the wide range of accessories available make it a truly unique vehicle.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE NEW DRAGSTER
If you ever wondered what makes the new Dragster so unique, there are a few features that are in this combination hardly found in any other 2-wheeled vehicle. The Dragster is not setting a new standard: It is above and beyond anything else available on the market.
I.S.S. INDEPENDENT STEERING SYSTEM
The unique Center Hub Steering separates the steering, braking, and suspension function, providing unique stability. It filters any kind of roughness, without transmitting vibrations to the handlebar. The original Dragster featured this unique setup and the only other 2-wheeled vehicle fitted with this system is the Bimota Tesi 3D.
True to Leopoldo Tartarini’s origin with Ducati, the Dragster features a molybdenum-chrome frame reinforced with die-cast aluminum plates. A trellis frame provides a strong, lightweight structure that simplifies placement of engine and components, and gives good access for maintenance. But most importantly, it connects the steering head to the swingarm pivot as directly as possible and provides a unique rigidity due to its interwoven structure.
200cc DOHC HIGH-PERFORMANCE ENGINE
A liquid-cooled Euro 5-designed engine with an output of almost 20hp combined with an overall dry weight of 112kg delivers the best power-to-weight ratio in any production scooter available. The Italian-designed four-valve engine builds one unit with the swingarm that is suspended with a Paioli monoshock absorber for optimal drivability. The wide 150mm rear tyre provides the ultimate grip on the road and ensures the optimal transmission of the high power output from the engine to the road.
MORE THAN JUST LED LIGHTS…
LED lights are now universal in most new vehicles. However, the Dragster goes a step further with its animated front and rear LED light systems: You’d have to see it in real life when the vehicle is turned on. Just the lighting alone emits the attitude that there is a serious racer and contender springing into life ready to ride.
